Gordon Ramsay's guide to cookware

Take your cookware cue from the professionals. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay gives housetohome his top tips on caring for cookware and keeping it looking as good as new.

Read on for Gordon's short, sweet and straight-to-the-point tips on keeping your cookware in top condition.

Match pots and pans to the hob
Stop pans overheating and becoming damaged by avoiding gas flames coming up the side of the pan. You can help prevent this by matching the size of the pan to the heating area of your hob.

Keep stirring when cooking
When adding salt to liquids in a stainless steel pan, stirring will prevent the stainless steel from pitting.

Choose the right kitchen utensils
Avoid chlorine cleansers, steel wool or sharp objects that may mark your pans - plastic, coated or wooden kitchen utensils are safest.

Allow cookware to cool after cleaning
Allow cookware to cool before placing it in cold water as this can cause it to warp.

Gordon's top cookware care tip...
Never allow cookware to boil dry.
