WHEN DO YOU PRE-HEAT?

PRE-HEATING UTENSILS
When pre-heating is recommended, use the medium heat setting for 3 to 4 minutes before adding foods. Perform this simple test to determine if the utensil is pre-heated properly:

Add a few water droplets into the utensil.

If the water droplets sizzle and bounce, the utensil is pre-heated and foods may be added.

If the droplets do not sizzle and bounce, pre-heat utensil a minute or two longer before adding foods.

Pre-heat when you want the food seared or browned.

Example of foods:

Searing Meats

Eggs

Pancakes

French toast

Hash browns

Fried potatoes

Caramelized onions

Stir-frying

Veggie Burgers

Tofu

Pan seared veggies
