How to care for ceramic cookware: Your definitive guide
Ceramic cookware is lightweight and aesthetically pleasing, with eggs-glide-like-butter nonstick qualities. This is all thanks to a chemical-free coating made from a sand derivative, that is made use of in the design. However, without proper maintenance, ceramic cookware can become warped or lose their finish. To keep your ceramic cookware in tip-top shape, follow our care guide for cooking with and cleaning ceramic cookware.
Prepare to use
After removing all packaging materials and labels, wash the cookware with warm soapy water and wipe with a dry paper towel, to remove dust particles and dirt from manufacturing and shipping. It is ready to use after this initial washing.
Cook on medium to low heat
To increase the longevity of your cookware’s nonstick surface, you should always use the right heat settings and burner size on your stove-top to avoid damage from overheating. Food will stick at high heat, or if you have damaged the coating.
Use only safe utensils
Avoid using harsh scourers such as metal utensils, as the coating may chip or scratch. Only use wooden utensils with ceramic cookware, preferably bamboo forks and spoons.
Never use cooking oil sprays
Never use cooking spray, as it may allow residue to build up. As this residue grows, the pot or pan starts to lose some of its nonstick properties. Rather add a small amount of butter or oil to the pan before each use. Your food will effortlessly glide on your ceramic pans, so less is more when it comes to oil or butter. 1-2 tablespoons is more than enough to lightly coat the entire pan surface. Allow 20-30 seconds to pre-heat before you add food
Do not let your pans go from cold to hot or vice versa too quickly
Let your cookware cool off before hand washing it. Adding cold water to a hot pot or pan can damage the nonstick coating, and crack ones made of solid ceramic.
Always wash by hand
Ceramic cookware is usually dishwasher safe. However, due to the risk of chipping, hand washing is still the recommended option. Hand wash your cookware with a soft sponge or cloth. If food gets stuck onto the surface, fear not! Simmer soapy water over a low heat then gently scrape away with a sponge or non-abrasive scrubber. Rinse and repeat if needed.The outside can be scrubbed lightly with a bicarb vinegar solution if it gets discoloured.
Store the cookware safely
Store your cookware separate to other pots and pans. This means do not stack it, unless it is stored by placing paper napkins or pan protectors between it and the other cookware to protect its surfaces.
Care for the wood
Do not place the wooden parts of your cookware in the dishwasher as this will cause cracking and remove the shine and finish. Do not put wooden handles or knobs in the oven or on top of an open flame as they will burn. Edible wood oil can be used renew your woods shine if it has been placed in a dishwasher by accident.
The wooden handles are attached by a screw inside the hole, if the screw is loose use a long screwdriver to tighten it.
I love the way the pot looks and cooks etc but didn't consider how hot the handles would get, especially on an induction stove. So something to consider. The wok pan is great b/c the handle is wood.
We have a Miele induction cooktop at home. And I had so much trouble finding a nonstick pan that is NOT TOXIC & PERFORMANT.
I tried many brands like GreenPan and Our Place. Unfortunately all of the different brands that I tried took soooo long to heat up and I had to cook on the highest setting. Before FIKA, I had to use traditional nonstick pans (toxic…yuck!), stainless steal (it sticks!) and cast iron (high maintenance and very heavy).
I am very glad to have found an EFFICIENT and HEALTHY alternative. Very beautiful too!
I’m buying some more for our second residence.
I love my new apron and oven mitts. Gorgeous colour and the quality is 👌
Quality is excellent. Strong and durable.

FIKA Casserole Stew Pot with Glass Lid
What a Beautiful set !
This new addition is a very elegant and lean design that would complement a modern kitchen
Bought this set for a couple of friends who are waiting for the firstborn to arrive. I had the pleasure to watch them use the full set during the week as I was staying over. Everything cooked perfectly. The cleanup was super easy and the set is gorgeous. They fell in love with it and are now begging the other to let them cook so they can use it! I will most likely buy myself a set in the future. This set is worth every dollars.
I bought one large wok and two pots from FIKA, they looks pretty nice and is easy to clean, I am really happy with the purchase.
Beautiful design and perfect size for up to 4 people cooking pasta.
Light weight and so far easy to keep clean.
