Instructions & Manual
Frequent questions
Always use wooden or plastic utensils. Never use metal utensils.
No. All cake tins are made from aluminium. As aluminium is a metal, it cannot be used in the microwave (this could damage your microwave). There are also Proflex baking tins that are not made from aluminium … but they are not recommended for use in the microwave either
No. The internal coating would be damaged and the cookware would lose its non-stick properties. You can buy specific utensils for making cuts in non-stick cookware. Proflex cookware is no longer useable if it is damaged by a sharp or blunt object.
No. It is designed to go in the oven and not on a hob.
Using it on the hob would lead to the cookware becoming warped.
Oiling' means covering the kitchenware with a thin layer of oil. Before using it for the first time, wash your kitchenware in water and dry it. Warm it over a very low heat for 30 seconds, remove it from the heat and add a dessertspoon of vegetable oil. Spread the oil over the entire surface with a paper serviette. This process should be repeated regularly if you use a dishwasher.
With fan-assisted ovens, avoid glass or earthenware material. Use a baking temperature lower than the recommended one and increase the baking time.
Yes, but cleaning it with a sponge and some soapy water is enough.
When you are cleaning the non-stick interior of your baking tin, never use wire wool or scouring pads or powder. Simply use a sponge, hot water and some washing-up liquid. If you wash the tin in the dishwasher, grease it again before using it (see Using your cookware for the first time).
The dimensions stated on the packaging are usually internal but in all cases a small diagram shows what the dimensions correspond to; you should refer to this diagram to interpret them.
All non-stick coatings contain PTFE, the abbreviation for polytetrafluorethylene, a plastic polymer. It is a slippery ingredient, made up of molecules of tetra fluoro ethylene that only contain carbon and fluorine. The non-stick coating is not attacked by acid or alkaline bases and remains stable on cooking. The French, European and American health authorities have approved the use of PTFE non-stick coatings for kitchenware. In fact, it is a substance that does not produce any chemical reaction when it comes into contact with food, water or cleaning products. In the event of absorption, it is completely harmless for the body. It passes through the body without being absorbed, like any other fibre. In fact, the non-stick coating is so safe from a health point of view that it is often used by the medical profession to coat pacemakers and tiny tubes replacing arteries.
NO. Cookware items with Tefal/T-fal non-stick coating do not contain PFOA. This is regularly checked by independent laboratories, which verify the absence of PFOA in the finished products. Since 2003, tests have regularly been performed by independent laboratories in many countries (INERIS in France, ASAHI GLASS FLUOROPOLYMERS in the UK, FABES Labs in Germany, MB Labs in Canada and SGS in China). These tests have systematically proven the absence of PFOA in products with Tefal/T-fal non-stick coating.
It is very rare for the non-stick coating to wear off under normal household use. Proper use and care will allow for better performance over time. Most cases of non-stick wearing have evidence of overheating, scratching and/or abrasive cleaning. Excessive overheating can cause the pan's surface to dry up and flake. This type of damage is not covered by the guarantee. If you occasionally use high heat or have over-heated your pans, we recommend that you season your cookware more often.
There is, at the moment, much confusion about non-stick coatings, which are sometimes related to PFOA. However, Tefal/T-fal non-stick coatings are made of PTFE, the abbreviation of the scientific name Polytetrafluoroethylene, and this material is recognised as harmless by public health agencies in Europe and in the United States. PFOA and PTFE are two completely different elements. In summary, cookware with Tefal/T-fal non-stick coatings are made of PTFE and do not contain PFOA. Furthermore, for more than 20 years, Tefal/T-fal made a commitment not to use lead or cadmium in the whole of its cookware range in order to serve as a guarantee of the harmlessness of all its products. You will find this commitment through Eco information set up by the Group SEB.
PFOA is the standard English abbreviation of perfluorooctanoic acid. PFOA is used in the manufacturing process of many products such as non-stick coatings, compatible microwave packaging, some textiles, stain resistant carpet, pizza boxes which do not absorb fat, etc. On its finished products, Tefal/T-fal's commitment is to guarantee the absence of PFOA, lead and cadmium and to guarantee that its products with Tefal/T-fal non-stick coating are harmless for the environment and the consumer.
There is neither cadmium nor lead in the non-stick coatings and enamel of our Tefal/T-fal cookware. We noticed that these harmful substances can leak out when the product is washed in the dishwasher, then re-settle on all the utensils in the dishwasher. Using these utensils for eating or cooking causes you to ingest cadmium or lead, which then stays in the body. For that reason, all of our cookware has been designed and manufactured without lead or cadmium for more than 20 years. You can find this Eco information on the packaging of all our products with Tefal/T-fal non-stick coating.
Tefal/T-fal non-stick coating is a technical coating made from a polymer name polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). It is PTFE which gives the cookware the non-stick properties. Public health authorities in Europe and in the USA demonstrated that PTFE is an inert substance which does not chemically react with food, water or domestic cleaning products. It is totally harmless in case of ingestion. These Public health authorities confirmed the harmlessness of PTFE non-stick coatings in cookware. In fact, PTFE is so safe that it is frequently used in the medical profession to coat pacemakers and the tiny tubes made to replace arteries. It is also used for surgical procedures for the benefit of patients with severe kidney disease, and some joint prostheses are also partly coated with PTFE.
The SEB Group, as part of its commitment to Quality, has included "Health and Environment" Eco information on its non-stick Tefal/T-fal products. This commitment guarantees the absence of PFOA, lead and cadmium in Tefal/T-fal coatings and the guarantees that our non-stick products are harmless for the environment and the consumer. This Eco information is based on the regular analysis conducted by independent laboratories in many countries (INERIS in France, ASAHI GLASS FLUOROPOLYMERS in UK, FABES Labs in Germany, MB Labs in Canada, SGS in China) (link to the lab sites).This commitment can be found on the website of the Tefal/T-fal brand, as well as the packaging of cookware with non-stick Tefal/T-fal coating.
