    Use & Care - Accent Series

    Accent Series

    Hi! Please read through this information before first use and retain this for future reference. If you have any further questions about using your cookware, get in touch with our Customer Service at! They are really friendly!

    Before First Use

    1. Before first use, remove all the labels and wash the cookware thoroughly. Use mild dishwashing detergent and warm water and make sure you dry the cookware thoroughly before storing or using. It is recommended that paper towel is placed between cookware which may assist in preventing scratches to the surfaces during storage.
    2. Remember to register your product before you throw out the packaging so that you can record your barcode. All our cardboard packaging is made using 100% recycled paper, so please dispose of your packaging thoughtfully once your product is registered with us.

    Care for Your Cookware

    To ensure your cookware stays beautiful and effective for as long as possible:

    • We strongly recommend hand washing.
    • We do not recommend the use of metal cooking utensils, which can scratch and damage your cookware. We recommend that you use wooden or heat-resistant plastic utensils on your cookware. Scratches and peeling due to the usage of sharp-edged metal utensils is not covered under warranty.

    General Cooking Instructions

    • Cookware can be used on all types of hobs/stovetops, including induction, gas, halogen, electric, and ceramic.
    • Depending on the type and length of cooking, the lids and handles may get hot.
    • For safety, it is recommended that potholders are used.
    • Always try to match the size of the pan to the heating element or gas burner to prevent excess heat from overheating the handles.
    • Our cookware distributes heat evenly, so cooking can be done on a low to medium heat, which will also help prevent overheating of the handles.
    • Cookware should not be filled to more than two-thirds capacity.
    • As soon as boiling point is reached, the temperature should be lowered. Continuous high heat may cause discoloration.
    • Avoid sliding your cookware over the surfaces of your stovetop, as scratches may occur.
    • Do not leave an empty pan on a hot burner or allow the pan to boil dry and do not put a hot pan onto a cool stovetop. This may cause the pan to fuse to a glass top stove. In the event this happens, the heat must be turned off and the pan should be left to cool before moving.
    • Always follow your stovetop manufacturer’s instructions for specific cookware restrictions. Your warranty does not cover damage to hobs/stovetops.
    • Keep small children away from the stove while you are cooking, as heat, steam and spatter can cause burns.
    • Fumes from everyday cooking can be harmful to birds or small pets in or near the kitchen.
    • This cookware is not intended for commercial use or restaurant use.

    Cooking Oils

    • When deep frying, fill the pan to no more than one-third full of oil. Do not leave hot oil unattended and never use a lid.
    • Use low heat when heating up oils, as oils can quickly overheat and cause a fire.
    • Heavy vegetable oils may leave a residue that can affect non-stick performance.
    • Do not use aerosol or low calorie sprays when cooking as these damage the nonstick surface.

    Induction Cooktops

    • For best performance, it is important to match the pan base to the hob/burner ring size, this ensures the most efficient use of energy.
    • When matching cookware to ring size, follow the hob/stovetop manufacturer’s guidelines. They normally mean the size of the pan base and not the rim diameter.
    • Cookware dimensions given refer to the rim-to-rim diameter of the pan.
    • Induction burners require a minimum pan size in order to detect the presence of the pan. Using a smaller pan on a larger burner generates less power and therefore less heat, resulting in slower cooking times or sometimes the pan will not even be detected. Larger pans can be used on a smaller burner, but this is not as efficient as using the correct size and will affect cooking times.
    • Do not leave a pan unattended when preheating since heat up is rapid on induction.

    Gas Cooktops

    • When cooking, adjust the flame so that it does not extend up to the sides.
    • Do not allow handles to extend over hot burners.
    • Place the pan on the burner with the handle lined up with one of the burner grate arms to prevent the pan from tipping.

    Glass-Ceramic Cooktops

    • Check that the glass hob/stovetop is free of food deposits before and after use. The food deposits can harden and cause cosmetic scratching on the glass surface.

    Oven Use

    • Cookware items with silicone handles are oven-safe up to Gas 230°C/445°F.
    • Stainless steel lids with phenolic knobs are oven-safe up to Gas 180°C/350°F.
    • Microwave: Never place your cookware in the microwave.
    • Grill/Broiler: Do not place under a grill/broiler, or close to the heat source in an oven.
    • Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing cookware from the oven.

    Nonstick Cookware 

    • Use low to medium heat to preserve the cookware’s exterior and nonstick interior coatings as well as to preserve the nutrients in food. High heat may damage the cookware’s coating, voiding the warranty.
    • Do not use aerosol or low calorie sprays when cooking as these damage the nonstick surface.
    • Nonstick staining occurs even with normal use, but is not considered a defect and is not covered under warranty.

    Stainless Steel Cookware

    • Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil or butter to maximise browning and minimize sticking.


    • Always position the lid away from you, when removing or cooking with the lid. Direct contact with rising steam can be dangerous.
    • A lid left on a pan after turning down/off the heat may result in the lid being vacuum sealed to the pan. If your lid is vacuum sealed to your pan, return it to the burner on low heat so the air inside the pan warms and expands to release the seal.
    • Always use a potholder when adjusting lids with steam vents.

    Cookware Handles & Lid Knobs

    • The silicone handles and phenolic knobs can get very hot under some conditions. Be careful when touching them, always have potholders available for use.
    • The hot/cold cycling of cookware can over time, cause the handles and knobs to become loose. Periodically check that all fittings are secure.
    • Do not use cookware with loose or insecure fittings.


    • The Meyer Accent Series cookware is dishwasher-safe (The Spark Edition Essential Set: 10567-T, is not dishwasher-safe.) However like all fine cookware, hand washing is preferable. The cumulative effect of strong agitation and harsh detergent will dull the exterior surface, although the performance of the pan will not be affected.
    • Always follow the dishwasher manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
    • To avoid warping, wait for your pan to cool down before washing.
    • Do not use bleach, steel wool, coarse scouring pads, oven cleaners or powders.
    • To remove burned-on food, soak your cookware in hot water before washing.
    • If food remains on the surface, boil a mixture of water and vinegar into the pan to dislodge food particles. (3 parts water to one part vinegar)
    • Avoid leaving food in the pan after cooking, as it may cause deterioration to the pan’s surface.
    • Staining occurs even with normal use but is not considered a defect.
    • Staining will occur if food is spilled or allowed to boil over onto the exterior of the pan.
    • A spotted white film may form on plain stainless steel surfaces which can be removed with a mild solution of water and lemon juice or vinegar.
    • To lessen a stain, make a paste of baking soda and water, apply to pan and scrub with a nonabrasive plastic mesh pad or sponge.

    Convenient Storage

    • The Meyer Accent Series Essential Set is designed to nest together for easy and convenient storage.
    • The Meyer Accent Series Essential Set comes with pan protectors. Place the pan protectors between pans when storing, to avoid scratches or chips on the cookware exterior.
    • When purchasing the Meyer Accent Series as individual cookware pieces, place paper towels between pans when storing, to avoid scratches or chips on the cookware exterior. Pan protectors are sold separately.
