Our coaches share their best tips for keeping your products in tip-top shape, from cooking to cleanup.
As a rule of thumb, add a cooking fat of your choice and warm on low heat before getting started. Olive oil, butter, milk – whatever sounds good. Use metal accessories gently to avoid surface scratching.
Equal Parts pots and pans are coated with non-toxic, non-stick ceramic. It’s easy to clean and best hand washed with soap and water. In a pinch? They’re dishwasher safe, too.
We’ve all done it. We like to think of it as a sign of a real home cook. Here’s what to do next: Bring a cup of water and vinegar to a boil in the pan. Remove your pan from heat, add baking soda, and lightly scrub with a sponge. If you still see residue, make a thicker paste with baking soda and water. Apply to the stain and let it sit for a few hours. It should wash away easily after this step.
We designed the Equal Parts Everyday Knife to stay sharp over time. But taking some extra measures to protect the blade won’t hurt. The best way to do this is always cut on cutting boards and give it a proper home in a butcher’s block or in its box rather than leaving it in the sink or utensil drawer.
When it’s time to do the dishes, we recommend hand washing your knife to give it a little extra love. But, like most Equal Parts cookware, it’s dishwasher safe if you’ve had a long day at work.
Accessories are the paint brushes of the kitchen. They help you create and get in the flow state. All Equal Parts accessories – whisk, slotted spoon, spatula, slotted spatula, tongs – are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup when things get messy.
When using metal accessories with your pots and pans, be gentle to avoid scratching the surface. But don’t worry too much. Our pots and pans are durable, plus scratches lend character.
Washing a wooden cutting board with dish soap and water are critical to keeping it clean. Avoid the dishwasher here to preserve the quality. When you need a deep clean to remove pesky stains (we’re looking at you beet juice), bring out the big guns: coarse salt and lemon juice.
Sprinkle the salt all over the board, then slice a lemon in half and use it to rub the salt into the board. The salt acts as an abrasive to lift stains and the lemon juice leaves everything smelling great.
Getting food out of the tiny holes can be tricky. When this happens, grab an old toothbrush and scrub with some warm water and soap. Your colander is made with sturdy stainless steel, so it can also be thrown in the dishwasher for a quick clean.
Made of stainless steel and coated with non-toxic, non-stick ceramic, your mixing bowls are durable and dishwasher safe. They also nest inside one another for seamless storage.
Using your bowls for food storage? Pull out their lids made of recycled plastic. Place on top of the bowl and push down on either side of the lid to release air from inside. This keeps your food fresh.
