Purchasing high-quality Caraway cookware allows you to create delicious meals at home for your friends and family. However, you must take proper care of your brand-name pots, pans and bakeware to ensure it does not become scratched or damaged, which can affect the quality of your cooking. Knowing how to clean your Caraway cookware and bakeware can help them keep their nonstick coating and continue performing up to the brand’s standards year after year.

Cleaning Before Use

Most cookware manufacturers suggest cleaning your items before first use. Your pots and pans may gather dust and debris during manufacturing and shipping. You don’t want these particles to end up in your food so, before using your Caraway cookware for the first time, clean the items as follows:

  • Remove your items from the packaging and clean them with warm, soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge.
  • Dry the top and bottom of your cook or bakeware with a soft dish towel. 

Although Caraway cookware and bakeware sets can handle temperatures of up to 550°F when using cookware on the stovetop, we recommend using low to medium heat to avoid damaging the pans. When using Caraway bakeware, preheat the oven to your baking temperature before placing your trays inside, and avoid putting empty bakeware in the oven.  

General Cleaning Tips

Caraway bake- and cookware are coated in a non-toxic, nonstick ceramic cooking surface. This coating doesn’t contain harmful chemicals like PFOA, PTFE or PFAs, and it releases up to 60% less CO₂ during manufacture than other nonstick coatings. Caraway’s ceramic coating requires special but easy upkeep with the following cleaning tips: 

  • Cool down. Allow your Caraway pans to cool down completely before cleaning. Abrupt temperature changes, such as running your hot pan under cold water, can cause thermal shock and crack or warp your pan. Place your hot cookware on a cork trivet to cool on the countertop before you clean it.
  • Clean. Clean your Caraway cookware and bakeware with detergent, warm water and a gentle dishcloth or sponge. You can fill your sink with warm soapy water or place your item under warm running water and use a circular scrubbing motion to remove food debris and oil. 
  • Deep clean. Soak your cookware in warm soapy water if it has caked-on food on its surface. You can also soak the pan in one cup vinegar and two tablespoons baking soda for 30 minutes. This approach should release the food and allow you to wipe it away easily.
  • Dry. Dry your pots, pans and bakeware with a soft, non-abrasive towel. Cotton, linen or microfiber towels are excellent options. 
  • Store. Store your cookware in the manufacturer-provided magnetic rack or sheet organizer to allow them to air dry completely. This storage method also prevents damage to their ceramic surface.

How to Store Your Caraway Pots and Pans

You have two main storage options to avoid scratching your Caraway pots and pans. The first is to use towels or protective sheaths between the surfaces of your pans. This layer prevents abrasion, scratching or other damage from tearing into the non-stick surface.

Your second option is to store your Caraway sets in the unique storage caddies that come with your purchase. Caraway sets, like the Caraway Complete Bakeware Set in Navy, come with a sheet organizer that conveniently separates your cookie sheets and cupcake pans. Caraway pot and pan sets, like the Caraway Cookware Set in White with Gold Handles, come with specially fitted magnetic pan racks and a lid holder that fits into your cabinets for easy storage. This storage unit keeps your Caraway set organized and prevents dents and scratches to the insides of your Dutch oven, pots or pans.

  • Never use your Caraway items under a broiler setting or in a microwave.
  • Never use metal utensils like spoons or spatulas on your pans.
