  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can you use NuWave cookware on gas stove?

Yes. All NuWave pots and pans are ultra-versatile. They can be used on gas stoves, electric stoves, induction cooktops, and even in ovens. NuWave pots and pans are all ovens safe at high temperatures. However, the maximum temperature varies by product. Also, the glass lids often have a lower maximum temperature so be sure to check the box for exact details and try to avoid putting glass lids in the oven at high heat in general as this may cause damage to the lid or, worse, damage to the inside of your oven should the lid explode under the heat.

Is NuWave cookware safe?

Yes, of course. NuWave cookware is relatively new compared to other popular, well-rooted cookware brands, but that actually makes NuWave cookware safer, and better than the competition. NuWave is not afraid to innovate to make their cookware safe while incorporating advanced, patented technologies in their products and the manufacturing process. Their pots and pans are always safe to use as long as you follow the care and general use instructions on the box and do not push their cookware too far past their already high limits. Additionally, their signature Duralon ceramic non-stick cooking surfaces are safe, eco-friendly, easy to clean, and healthy also. The non-stick coating is free of all harmful chemicals and makes it possible to cook without using butter or oils to make food slide right off the pan. That just comes naturally.

Are NuWave pans dishwasher safe?

Yes. For your convenience, all NuWave pans are dishwasher safe. They will continue to last long, even after enduring regular dishwasher cycles with ease. While they are dishwasher safe and I am not here to discourage you from putting your NuWave pans in the dishwasher, keep in mind that, thanks to the NuWave Duralon non-stick ceramic cooking surfaces and the stain-resistant exteriors, oftentimes a simple rinse and wipe with light soap and water will do the trick and leave your pans sparkling clean in just a few minutes.

How do you clean a NuWave pan?

To clean, you can use your dishwasher. Or, you can simply rinse and wipe gently with some light soap and water. However, do not scrub your pots and pans too roughly as this may accelerate the wear and tear of the products and cause the non-stick and stain-resistant coatings to chip, peel, or fade. If you notice food is sticking to the pans, making it necessary for you to scrub hard to remove food residue and grime, return the product to your retailer immediately for a replacement as this should not happen, especially in the first few uses.

 Final Verdict

In short, all NuWave cookware is, for sure, a hot, must-buy item. Their products make cooking fun, especially with NuWave’s many free sample recipes on their site. Food always turns out delicious and comes right out their pots and pans with no fuss and easy cleanup. These ceramic nonstick and forged aluminum products are all very easy to use and will reliably help you produce delicious dishes for every meal of the day, every day for many years to come.

While I personally fell in love with all the items in this NuWave Duralon cookware review, mainly because of that eco-friendly and healthy signature Duralon ceramic nonstick coating, I did have a clear favorite. While it wasn’t a set, so leaves much to be desired in terms of completeness and affordability, the NuWave 3 Quart Non-stick Saucepan with Tempered Glass Lid is, in my opinion, a must have for any kitchen, alongside one of the NuWave cooking sets, of course, to complete your kitchen. This saucepan is so versatile, easy to clean, and long lasting that it is always my go-to for pretty much anything that can be cooked in a saucepan.

This saucepan is ready to go regardless of cooking method whether it be gas or electric or an induction stovetop or even inside an oven and can withstand some pretty high temperatures for such a little saucepan. It is durable, and the lid looks sleek and clean while locking on tight to the saucepan to keep the heat and flavors in. That’s great for slow cooking and for stopping small splatters and spills from getting on your stove. The glass is shatter-proof, so it is safe and, at low heat, you can even use it to check up on the progress of boiling liquids inside. I would definitely recommend this to all my family and friends.
