Products and Usage

Where is Hexclad made?

Our products are designed in Los Angeles and South Korea. Like the vast majority of cookware and other products today, our products are manufactured in China.

What level of heat should I use?

Our patented HexClad design allows heat to distribute faster and more evenly, which means you can cook at lower temperatures. We recommend that our customers start cooking at lower temperatures and increase if needed. You rarely need to cook on high heat with HexClad. Learn more watching HexClad Cooking Temperature.

How should I clean my cookware?

Despite what the name implies, Stainless steel may stain. The good news, with HexClad staining is easy to remove. In fact, you can even use steel wool scouring pads and abrasive cleaners such as Bar Keepers Friend to help remove the stain. Using those paired with warm soapy water will get your pan back to new.

Learn more in our Cleaning Your Cookware video for more info.

How do I make sure my pans are properly seasoned?

Like most fine cookware, HexClad should be seasoned before its first use. You do not need to season your pans before every use.
Here’s how to season your pans properly:
• Heat your pan to medium-low and spread 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil around the interior of the pan.
• Leave the pan on the heat for 1-2 minutes.
• Now you're ready to cook. Simple as that!

You can view our seasoning video for more details.

Over the first few weeks of use, your HexClad Hybrid cookware will perform better as it re-seasons from the fats in the food you are cooking. If you’re still experiencing sticking after owning the pans for an extended time, we recommend giving the pan a deep clean with a more abrasive sponge and then re-season the pan.

Will my HexClad pans scratch?

Yes, even a diamond can scratch! Metal spatulas, whisks, spoons, and other metal utensils are fine, but sharp utensils could leave a scratch. If this happens it is only cosmetic, and it will not affect the performance or safety of the cookware.

Does HexClad contain PTFE?

Our nonstick coating contains PTFE, which is listed in the Biomonitoring California Priority Chemicals List. More information can be found here:
