How Do I Clean The Bottom Of The Pan?

Swiss Diamond products boast cast aluminum for excellent heat transfer and strength. Here's how to keep the uncoated aluminum base of your Swiss Diamond Classic pans gleaming:

  1. Avoid the Dishwasher:

    • Keep your cookware out of the dishwasher to prevent abrasive detergents from dulling the aluminum's shine. Note: Swiss Diamond cookware is dishwasher safe, but this advice is for aesthetic preservation.
  2. Remove Food Residue:

    • Soft aluminum can scratch, so avoid abrasive scouring pads. Instead, make a paste of baking soda and water or use Bar Keepers Friend. Gently scrub with a non-abrasive pad or brush.
  3. Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda Method:

    • Apply baking soda, pour hydrogen peroxide, add more baking soda, and let it sit. This less labor-intensive method helps renew aluminum surfaces.
  4. Remove Grey Discoloration with Vinegar:

    • Mix 1 part vinegar with 2 parts hot water. Soak the pan for 15 minutes, scrub gently, and repeat until the desired result. For extreme discoloration, try a solution of cream of tartar or lemon juice with water.
  5. Final Cleanup:

    • Repeat the baking soda scrub and rinse thoroughly with dish soap to remove any residue. Your aluminum base will look as good as new!
