For your reference… (We however recommend you to try the above experience to get familiar with the most appropriate heat setting)
When heat is set on medium, gas flames should be confined to half of the pot’s base area.
Medium heat is only recommended when lightly browning, frying, boiling hot water, preheating,
or quickly giving a final touch.(High heat should never be used!)
Browning ingredientsSTEP 1 Preheat your covered Vermicular over medium heat for 3 minutes.
STEP 2 Add oil evenly.
STEP 3 Press with tongs and sear until sizzling stops.
Preheating 2 or 3 minutes on medium heatWhatever you are cooking, preheating your pot over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes shortens the entire process.
For better results, we also recommend preheating your pot if it is cold. (Preheating less than 5 minutes on medium heat is safe).
Cleaning the pot after cookingAfter cooking, use kitchen detergent and a soft sponge to clean your pot.
Do not forget the body and lid’s black rims.
Wiping the pot dry and spreading oilTo keep the seal airtight, the black rims of the pot and lid have not been coated with enamel.It is therefore rust sensitive. Dry your pot after washing and apply a thin layer of vegetable oil with kitchen paper.
! Burnings are not a problem!
② Boil for 10 minutes over medium heat.
③ Let it cool and wipe them off with a smooth sponge (never scrub hard).
④ Residues should dissolve (bicarbonate is sold in supermarkets and drugstores)
! Stains are not a problem!
② Wait 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing. This should leave the pot clean and sparkling.
! Rust on the black rims is not a problem!
(Rust does not spread inward)
② When the rust is hard to remove, use a kitchen anti-corrosive solution (cream type).
(kitchen anti-corrosive solution is sold in home centers)
Enamel is delicateEnamel is made from glass components. Please avoid strong shocks and do not use metal kitchen tools as it may damage the enamel surface.
Use soft tools made of silicone, heat-resistant plastic, or wood.
Avoid thermal shockHigh heat, thermal shock, heating of an empty pot, cold water poured in a warm pot, etc. may damage the enamel and make it less resistant to burns.
(If you heated an empty pot too long, never pour water inside but wait until it cools down by itself.)
