Never preheat pans on high heat to speed up preheating. Excessive heat applied to an empty pan can damage the non-stick surface.
Preheat the pan for 1 to 2 minutes using the heat setting you intend to use when cooking. To determine if the pan is hot enough for cooking, simply add a few drops of water. If you hear a sizzle, the pan is ready for use. DO NOT rush the preheating process by using high heat. We recommend using lower temperatures when you first begin using your cookware to avoid overcooking and burning until you become familiar with how your pan cooks.
