What is the best way to clean my Stainless Steel pans?

Soak the inside with warm, soapy water for about 30 to 60 minutes if food is stuck or burnt on the inside. Then clean with warm, soapy water and rinse. For more stubborn stains try the following:

If you are happy to use a chemical cleaning fluid inside your pan we recommend Stellar Stainless Steel Cleaner. You can buy this direct from us by contacting Customer Services.

If you prefer using general household products please try any of the following:

Make a paste of bicarbonate of soda with diluted bleach and smooth this over the stained and burned area. Leave overnight and wash off.

Pour enough Coca Cola or similar into the pan to cover the stained area. Leave for about 30 minutes and then wash the pan as normal.

Drop a dishwasher tablet or 2 Tablespoons of washing powder into the Pan and add hot water. Leave to soak overnight.

If you do not wish to use a chemical cleaner in the saucepan there are the following methods:
Mix 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water if food remains stuck on inside bottom of the cookware. Boil for three or four minutes or until the food loosens free from the cookware. Then wash with warm, soapy water and rinse.
Mix 1 part lemon juice or white vinegar with 1 part water and use a rag or sponge to clean any white spots or white film that may form on the inside of your stainless steel cookware. You can clean the outside in a similar manner. Rinse with warm water.
Fill your cookware with 9 parts water, 1 part white vinegar and boil for 10 minutes if the white spots or film remains. Pour out, let the cookware cool, wipe the white spots or film away with a sponge or rag and rinse.
If the inside of your stainless steel pots gets discoloured take crushed tomatoes, or old tomatoes that you are going to throw out and put them in the pot with some water. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes and it will clean the pan out beautifully.
Remove mineral deposits with lemon juice and a non-abrasive scrubber or nylon brush. Mineral deposits may appear as a white film on the inside of the pot. Apply a tablespoon of lemon juice to the film and scour with a damp, non-abrasive scrubber. Rinse thoroughly.

How do I clean stained Non-Stick pans?

Non-stick pots and pans will get a grease or oil buildup as they age. This buildup will affect the way your food tastes and how it cooks. To remove the buildup, mix 2 tablespoons baking soda, ¾ cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of hot water in the pot or pan. Place on the stove and bring to a boil for about 10 to 15 minutes. Pour the mixture out and wash the pot or pan with a mild detergent such as washing up liquid. Re-season with vegetable oil.

How can I clean my stainless steel coffee/teaware?

The outside of the Teapot/kettle can be cleaned with Stellar Stainless Steel Cleaner. Contact Customer Servicesto purchase a bottle.

There are several different ways to clean the inside of the teapot. I can suggest a couple of methods for cleaning without chemicals. The first is to make up a paste of bicarbonate of soda and smooth this over the stained area, leave overnight and then wash off in the morning. A second suggestion is to pour enough Coke into the teapot to cover the stained area. Leave for about 30 minutes and then wash the pot as normal.
Alternatively you can buy a Stainless Steel De-scaler. These are usually recommended for kettles but will work just as well with teapots. There are several makes on the market. We recommend Scale Away which is very effective.
