WILL MY FOOD COOK BETTER USING COOKINA® PRODUCTS?
Absolutely! We have cooked the same foods in an oven using our non-stick products as well as wax paper, parchment paper, aluminum foil and normal metal sheets – each time the food cooked on COOKINA® appears far better and is easier to remove. How many times have you perfectly cooked a pastry, cake, flan, fish, etc. to find that it was impossible to remove because it was stuck to the cooking surface? Now that will be an experience of the past; now your perfectly cooked food will appear even better and complement your skills. The catering professionals have known this secret for years, and now you can use it in your own kitchen.
ARE COOKINA® PRODUCTS CHEAPER THAN ALUMINUM FOIL, PARCHMENT OR WAX PAPER ?
Yes, our non-stick products are much cheaper than using aluminum foil,parchment and wax paper because our products are reusable. If your COOKINA® discolours over time, don’t worry: most non-stick products experience discolouration from food staining or exposure to heat with regular use.
HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO REPLACE MY COOKINA®?
When food starts to stick, it’s time to buy another COOKINA®.
HOW THICK IS THE NON-STICK COATING ON THE COOKINA® PRODUCTS?
Five (5) times thicker than on most non-stick frying pans; therefore COOKINA® is better, non-stick and longer lasting!
CAN I USE BOTH SIDES OF COOKINA®?
Yes, all COOKINA® products are coated on both sides with non-stick material.
CAN I REALLY COOK WITHOUT OIL, BUTTER , GREASE OR OTHER FATS? WHAT ABOUT BAKING?
Yes, COOKINA® releases foods so easily, you really don’t need to use added fat for cooking.
CAN I REDUCE MY CALORIE INTAKE ?
Yes, COOKINA® can reduce your calorie intake because you do not need to add fat, butter, grease, oil or margarine when cooking your food.
CAN I USE MY COOKINA® AS A CUTTING SURFACE?
No. Using sharp utensils will damage the product and could cut it.
CAN I CUT COOKINA®?
Yes, you can cut our products with scissors and customize to your needs.
WHAT TYPE OF UTENSILS SHOULD I USE WITH MY COOKINA® ?
Use either plastic or wooden utensils. Avoid sharp utensils as they will scratch the non-stick surface.
CAN I USE METAL UTENSILS WITH MY COOKINA®?
To prolong its life, we strongly recommend that you do not use metal utensils with your COOKINA®. Plastic, wood or PTFE base utensils are a better choice.
CAN I EXPECT TO SEE SCRATCHES ON MY COOKINA® WHEN USING METAL SPATULAS?
Over time your COOKINA® surface will look used, including scuff marks from any spatula. This is expected and can interfere with the performance of the product.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR COOKINA®?
Cleaning by hand in soapy water is enough. Your COOKINA® must be cleaned each time it’s used to remove the film that can stay on the surface. If your COOKINA® is only wiped with a paper serviette, the film won’t be fully removed and may cook the next time you use your COOKINA® and stains may appear. Your COOKINA® must not be cleaned with scouring powders.
USE AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Before using for the first time, wash your COOKINA® with warm soapy water to remove dust. Wash and dry your COOKINA® after each use; let your COOKINA® cool before cleaning. Wash your COOKINA® in warm soapy water. Do not use harsh chemicals,abrasive cleaning powders or scouring pads. Dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. For better results soak your COOKINA® before washing and use the scour pad included.
After use and cleaning of your COOKINA® make sure you store flat or rolled with your COOKINA® Ring, making it the perfect utensil!
CAN COOKINA® BE DAMAGED BY HIGH TEMPERATURES?
Yes. A high temperature can burn food, producing stains and causing your COOKINA® to warp. In addition, overheating may result in a loss of non-stick performance. Use only low to medium heat with your COOKINA® at all times. A moderate temperature is sufficient for cooking. COOKINA® can be used without being damaged up to a temperature of approximately 288ºC (550ºF). This is well above the temperature needed to cook or fry, so there is no problem when your COOKINA® is used for normal cooking. Only heating your COOKINA® to a very high temperature, with nothing on it, can cause damage.
IF COOKINA® IS ACCIDENTALLY OVERHEATED, ARE THERE HAZARDOUS FUMES?
Any material heated high enough will give off fumes. You should never allow your COOKINA® to overheat. Fumes from overheated non-stick cookware, like your COOKINA® do not adversely affect humans or household pets with the exception of birds. Since birds have particularly sensitive respiratory systems, they are susceptible to fumes in general. At high temperatures above 288ºC (550ºF), in case of overheating of your COOKINA®, the decomposition of PTFE may create gases that could be harmful for birds.
IS IT USEFUL TO COOK AT HIGH TEMPERATURES WITH MY COOKINA®?
No. Cooking at high temperatures does not result in a significant decrease in cooking time and certainly does not contribute to the quality of the food, so cooking at medium temperatures is highly recommended. Another reason for this recommendation is that high temperature cooking might damage the non-stick coating of your COOKINA®.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND LOW TO MODERATE HEAT?
COOKINA® is designed to radiate heat evenly throughout so high heat is not needed and may damage the surface. Cooking at the recommended temperature (low to moderate) allows food to cook thoroughly without burning or overheating. Damage due to overheating is not covered under the warranty. Heating non-stick cookware above 288ºC (550ºF) can discolor the surface of your COOKINA® or cause it to lose some of its non-stick properties. If an empty non-stick COOKINA® is accidentally heated above 350°C (662°F), a temperature that far exceeds what food preparation calls for, the non-stick coating may begin to deteriorate.
UP TO WHAT TEMPERATURE CAN I HEAT COOKINA®?
You can heat COOKINA® without damaging it up to 288ºC (550ºF).
CAN I COVER THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF MY BARBECUE WITH MY COOKINA®?
No. Do not cover the entire surface of your barbecue with the COOKINA® cooking sheet. Just make sure that you don’t obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation of hot air. You just need to leave enough grill space for hot air to circulate. If needed, you can cut your COOKINA® to the appropriate size. When cooking over wood or charcoal, wait until flame has reduced to glowing coals before putting COOKINA on the grill.
WHAT IS YOUR COOKINA® MADE OF?
It’s a composite Fluoro Polymer plastic combining two extremely high-grade compounds coated and encapsulated around a fabric carcass, resulting in a tough, economical, flexible cooking sheet. The basic chemical component is PTFE.
WHAT IS PTFE?
PTFE is a chemical connection that was discovered in 1938 by Roy Plunkett of the DuPont company. PTFE was introduced as a commercial product in 1949. In 1954, the French engineer Marc Grégoire created the first pan coated with PTFE. PTFE is a plastic with the lowest friction coefficient. It is used as non-stick layer in all sorts of pans. PTFE is particularly non-reactive and consequently is used in all kinds of applications, from medicine to storage and transport of reactive chemicals. PTFE is chemically inert and non-toxic, although at a temperature of above 288ºC (550ºF) its quality begins to deteriorate and above 350ºC (662ºF) it will begin to evaporate. By way of comparison, butter and other fats used to bake and roast begin to scorch and smoke above 200ºC (392ºF). As a rule to prevent burning, meat should not be heated to more than 288ºC (550ºF). Cooking utensils placed empty on a heated cooking plate can reach temperatures of over 350ºC (662ºF). After research conducted in 1959 by the American FDA, PFTE was approved to be used in cooking utensils. The research showed that any harm from vapours originating from the excessive heating of an empty pan is less than that of common oils and fats. PTFE does not break down, is cumulative, and can be found in the environment,wildlife and bloodstream of humans. In our daily life, PTFE is everywhere. In anti-wrinkle creams and treatments, auto engine parts, camping equipment and outdoor clothing, carpets and rugs, clothing, computer chips, curling irons, dental floss, electrical insulation, fast food containers, furniture, beds, gardening equipment, hair dryers, house paint, kitchen utensils, light bulbs, luggage, medicine containers, microwave popcorn bags, pet bedding, leashes and collars, prosthetic devices and reconstructive surgery, razor blades and shaving foam, solar panel coatings, eyewear with scratch-resistant lenses, stain repellents, surgical instruments, and umbrellas — to name a few.
IS THE PTFE RECOGNIZED AS A HARMLESS SUBSTANCE?
The competent health authorities in the USA, Canada, France, Japan and other countries have approved the use of PTFE on cookware like your COOKINA®. PTFE is actually an inert substance that does not react chemically on contact with food, water or detergents. It is widely used in the medical field. In fact, COOKINA® reduces ACRYLAMIDE on food.
WHAT IS “PFOA”?
“PFOA” means (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) and is an agent used in the manufacturing of some PTFE.
DO COOKINA® PRODUCTS HAVE “PFOA” IN ITS “PTFE”?
There is NO PFOA detected on any COOKINA® product.
CAN PTFE DAMAGE MY HEALTH?
No, trust in the safety of PTFE coated products is based on over 40 years of laboratory tests. What’s more, the cooking sheets have been used worldwide without problems for many years, both in industrial and domestic applications. PTFE is a neutral material also implemented in the human body in various surgeries.
IS PTFE SAFE TO USE ?
This product is FDA approved and has been used in commercial applications for more than 40 years. This type of material has been used by every fast food restaurant, bread producer and numerous other commercial food producers since the early 1960s.
IS IT DANGEROUS TO ACCIDENTALLY EAT A PIECE OF THE NON-STICK COATING FROM MY COOKINA®?
The coating is designed not to flake in normal use. If COOKINA® is treated poorly and a particle of coating is inadvertently swallowed, there is no danger. The particles are not toxic (PTFE is harmless to your health). They will be passed without being absorbed, like any fibre.
ARE THERE ANY FURTHER HEALTH CONCERNS TO BE OBSERVED WHEN COOKING WITH COOKINA®?
NO! As long as you handle your COOKINA® with care:
– Do not overheat it
– Keep it clean after use
– Do not abuse it aggressively with metal utensils
– Keep your COOKINA® out of the flames and below 288ºC (550ºF)
– Never leave your COOKINA® unattended
– Do not cover the entire surface of your barbecue with the COOKINA® cooking sheet.
DOES MY COOKINA® LAST A LONG TIME?
If treated with care, it will last a long time. Even if it’s scratched accidentally with a metal utensil, it won’t be damaged or flake. Scratches do affect its non-stick performance.
