Food Burns/Cooks Unevenly
Match your Magnalite cookware with an appropriately sized burner when placing it on the stove. Avoid using the cookware on a burner that is larger than the bottom of the pan.
Turn the stove on and set it to cook on medium heat. Allow the pan to preheat for two to three minutes.
Add the food to the preheated Magnalite cookware.
Cook the food on low to medium heat. Note that cooking on high heat will cause food to cook unevenly and may permanently damage the cookware.
Troubleshoot Cookware Finish
Use only plastic, nylon or wooden cooking utensils with Magnalite cookware to avoid scratching its finish.
Wash the cookware in warm, soapy water after each use to remove any food residue. Scrub pans with a plastic scouring pad to remove stubborn food residue, if necessary. Avoid using abrasive metal scouring pads or steel wool, which will mar the surface of the cookware.
Store any leftover food in airtight containers. Avoid storing leftover food in Magnalite cookware as the salts in certain foods can leave unsightly surface pitting.
Season Magnalite cookware periodically to maintain its finish. Coat the inside of the cookware in a thin layer of vegetable oil; remove any excess oil with a dry paper towel. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the cookware in the preheated oven for an hour to form a protective natural glaze. For best results, re-season the cookware every one to two months if used regularly.
