What kind of sponge/scouring pad should I use for washing?
We highly recommend using the rough scouring pad (3M green heavy duty scotchbrite) for washing as that removes any residual dirt and grease most effectively. Try not to use the green scouring pad that's attached to a yellow sponge as the green part loses its effectiveness fairly quickly.
Can I use the pan/wok for steaming?
Yes, you can use the pan/wok for steaming, but we recommend that you apply the wok with a layer of oil after steaming so that the wok can re-absorb oil. After steaming, wash the wok and heat till dry, then apply a thin layer of oil. Leave it for 1 hour or so, then wash off the oil. Generally, the more hard anodized cookware comes into contact with oil, the more non-stick it becomes.
Can I use metal utensils on the pan?
