What Utensils Should You Use With Ceramic Cookware?

Ceramic cookware is nontoxic and versatile. You can use it on the stove, in the oven, over the campfire and in the microwave — but you should use specific tools with it to get the most out of your ceramic cookware.

Which Utensils Are Ceramic Cookware Safe?

Our 100% ceramic cookware combines ancient tradition with modern design. With the proper care and the right tools, it can last for generations without scratching or flaking. Safe utensils for ceramic cookware include:

  • Wooden spoons
  • Wooden spatulas
  • Wooden spurtles
  • Wooden chopsticks 
  • Silicone spoons
  • Silicone spatulas
  • Silicone tongs

Avoid using metal utensils with your ceramic cookware. Stainless steel spatulas, spoons, tongs and whisks will not damage the surface but can leave behind metal marks.

Which Appliances Are Safe for Ceramic Cookware?

Sustainable, non-leaching ceramic cookware is safe for use in or on the following:

  • Microwaves
  • Air fryers
  • Steamers
  • Ovens
  • Stoves
  • Campfires
  • Dishwashers 
  • Fridges

Top Tips to Protect Your Ceramic Cookware

Artisanally crafted ceramic cookware is long-lasting, timeless and reliable with the proper care. Keep these tips in mind to get the most out of your cookware:

  • Warming: Heat your cookware for about five minutes on the lowest setting before adding oil. Ceramic cookware takes more time to warm up than metal. 
  • Thawing and temperature changes: Ceramic pans, pots and cookware may be sensitive to sudden temperature changes. Always thaw your food before putting it in your cookware. You should avoid pouring cold water on hot cookware — and placing warm cookware in the fridge or on a chilled surface. 
  • Oiling: Always coat your pan before cooking. You can use avocado, coconut or olive oil or opt for fats, like butter, ghee or tallow. 
  • Cleaning: If your ceramic pot or pan has burned or stuck-on food bits, use dry baking soda and a scouring pad to scrub it clean.
