For a long-lasting Ingenio handle, it is recommended: • remove the handle during cooking when it is not required to prevent it from overheating and ensure its durability,
• overheating the handle can damage or break it. The handle may therefore no longer function correctly and there is the risk that the pan could fall and you could burn yourself. If you notice any heat damage to the handle it is advised that you do not use it and you should replace it with a new one.
• wash the handle by hand. Caution: Never press on the unlocking buttons while handling the pan. Keep the lever closed with your fingers. Refer to the user guide.
The upper temperature limit of the silicon parts is 250°C so it can be used for cooking. However, if it comes into contact with direct flame because it is not flush on the pot, it may result in the silicon changing colour, becoming deformed or the glass cracking.
If you have put the handle in the dishwasher or left the handle on a pan whilst cooking (either on the hob or in the oven), this will affect the efficiency of the open/close mechanism. The handle cannot be repaired and you will have to purchase a new one. Visit our accessories store.
You should never use the handle on makes or types of cookware other than Tefal Ingenio cookware. The Ingenio handle has been designed exclusively for the Tefal Ingenio range. If your pan becomes misshapen after a knock or a fall, it should no longer be used and we recommend that you replace it with a new one. If you continue to use the pan ensure that you can still fit the handle securely on the pan and be aware that you will be using the pan at your own risk.
It is a lid used to temporarily store food. 1. It can not be used for heating. Please do not put it in the oven. 2. Please refrain from storing food in it for a long time (a day or more as a rule). Corrosion of the pot body may result in the coating peeling away. 3. Do not leave the seal lid next to open flame. 4. Please do not use the seal lid while the food or pot is still hot. 5. Food products or ingredients with strong colour may stain the product. (Ketchup, curry, carrots, for example.)
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.
