Can the outside of the pan stain?
Yes. Due to high heat and cooking residue, the outside of the pan can stain. To reduce the risk of staining, take care not to allow food to boil over and clean the pans after every use.
Stains on the outside of the pan do not cause the pan to work differently; the stains are only superficial. Stains on the pans will not be cause for replacement or refund under the money-back or lifetime guarantee policy.
How do I clean stains on the pans?
We recommend using soap and water. A plastic scrub-type cleaner can be used.
We do not recommend using lemon juice, baking soda, salt, or lemon to clean the pans.
Do the pans require special cleaning?
No. The pans are dishwasher safe. We recommend using soap and water. A plastic scrub-type cleaner can be used to clean cooked-on food.
After repeated cleaning in a dishwasher, any coating will become coarse. The best practice for cleaning pans with a nonstick coating is to wash by hand and wipe with a dry cloth. The pan can be air dried.
Can aerosol cooking sprays be used?
Aerosol sprays are not recommended because they tend to build up after use.
Should the pans be preheated when cooking?
Preheat the pan over medium heat before adding food. The food should sizzle when placed in the pan. Do not crowd the pan with food. Please follow recipe guidelines and instructions.

Is the coating Teflon™?
No. The coating on the Emeril Forever Pans is not the registered Teflon™ coating or its chemical equivalent. Our 3-layer nonstick hybrid coating is even more advanced. Our patented nonstick coating is more durable, PFOA free, lead free, and cadmium free.
Are the pans safe to use around birds?
Are pans compatible with induction cooktops?
Yes. The stainless steel induction plate attached to the bottom each pan makes the pans compatible with induction cooktops.
What is important about hard-anodized surfaces?
Hard-anodized surfaces are durable, corrosion resistant, and non-reactive. You can cook anything in pans with hard-anodized surfaces, including acidic ingredients, like tomatoes, lemon juice, and wine. These surfaces also maintain the excellent heat conduction properties of regular aluminum; the surface heats up fast and distributes heat evenly. The pans are nonstick, which means there is less need for oils/butter when cooking. The pans heat evenly and quickly, react quickly to temperature changes, do not ding or scratch easily, and are stackable.
Do the pans need seasoning?
We recommend seasoning the pans on a regular basis for best performance.
