  1. To cook with it.

    Use white vinegar or bar keepers friend (if you have access to it) to scrub the interior once in a while to keep it shiny (food tends to stick to stained pans more often than not


    I put mine in the dishwasher, but I only use eco-friendly detergents.

    1. Like cutipie said, basically make sure you heat the pan up before add the foods and make sure the foods are not frozen cold. Butter/Ghee also help in term of keep the foods from sticking to the pan.
