Use & Care

In order to maximize the life and performance of your baking pans, it is important to follow all use and care instructions.

USE & CARE

Inspect pans regularly to ensure proper use and care procedures are being followed.

Our coatings can significantly reduce, and in some cases, virtually eliminate the use of oil needed for your baking process. Less oil means healthier baking and all of our coatings are certified to be PFOA-free and conform to FDA standards for coatings in contact with food. Outstanding release characteristics reduce product loss or staining by eliminating the transfer of carbon from dirty pans. Easy clean up allows additional time and cost savings.

AMERICOAT® ePlus Pan Use & Care

 

DAILY USE

 

Lubricate pans.

Apply a baking pan lubricant to the baking areas of the pan as needed. Bread products may only require lubricant before the first bake and after washing. Cake products will most likely require pan lubricant with every bake.

De-pan products quickly.

Baked products should be depanned while the pan is still hot or warm. If baked products are allowed to cool in the pan, steam from the product will penetrate the glaze and may cause glaze lifting, premature glaze failure, and damage to the pan’s surface.

Do not scratch or scrape pans.

Do not use metal utensils or other objects that could scratch the glaze. Deep scratches may cause surface corrosion on the pan.

 

DAILY CLEANING

 

Clean as you go.

Simply wipe still-warm pans with a clean towel or a towel that has lubricant on it. Avoid pan washing whenever possible.

Wash with mild soap and water.

Commercial baking pans can be washed with pH-neutral products, but only when absolutely necessary. Do not use acidic cleaners, alkaline detergents, or abrasive scrubbing pads. Use of these materials will cause the glaze to fail prematurely and may cause corrosion. Do not pre-soak or wash in automatic dishwashers.

Thoroughly dry pans immediately after washing.

Warm ovens work best.

Once dry, store pans upside down.

Do not nest pans immediately after towel drying. Keep pans away from moist and humid storage environments. The best storage areas are dry, warm storage areas or still-warm ovens.

Do not scratch or scrape pans.

Do not use metal utensils or other objects that could scratch the coating. Deep scratches may cause surface corrosion on the pan.

BĀKALON Pan Use & Care

INITIAL USE

 

Pre-season pans.

Before the first use, use cooking oil to lubricate the inside of the BĀKALON pan’s surfaces and allow the oil to warm and “season” in the oven for 5-10 minutes. This process fills the microscopic pores in the hardcoat anodized aluminum surface with oil to ensure that baked products release easily. Pans may need to be re-seasoned after oil is removed by washing or baking.

 

DAILY USE

 

Lubricate pans before each use as required.

Apply a baking pan lubricant (cooking oil) to the inside of the pan before each use. Well-seasoned pans or doughs with higher oil content usually do not require as much lubrication.

DAILY CLEANING

 

Clean as you go.

Simply wipe still-warm pans with a clean towel or a towel that has lubricant on it. You must re-season BĀKALON pans after each washing.

Wash with mild soap and water.

BĀKALON pans can be lightly washed with a mild pot and pan detergent, rinsed, and dried after each use. DO NOT USE acidic cleaners, alkaline detergents or sanitizers, which can damage the BĀKALON surface. Do not pre-soak or wash pans in a dishwasher.

Re-season pans.

BĀKALON pans must be re-seasoned after every wash (use the “Pre-seasoning process” described above). Pans may also need to be re-seasoned after oil is removed by washing or baking.

 

PERIODIC CLEANING

 

Scrub outside of pans.

If necessary, use a foodservice scrubbing pad and a pH-neutral detergent to clean the outside only of the BĀKALON pans if carbon builds up.

Pre-Seasoned BĀKALON Pan Use & Care

INITIAL USE

 

Depending on the amount of cooking oil contained in your product’s recipe, it may not be necessary to lubricate the inside of your Pre-Seasoned BĀKALON pan before each use. Because the microscopic pores in the hardcoat anodized aluminum surface have been semi-permanently filled with AMERICOAT® ePlus pre-seasoning, little to no additional lubricant may be required.

DAILY USE

 

Try not to cut inside pans, scrub, scrape or otherwise scratch pans.

Limit the use of metal utensils, scrub pads or other abrasive cleaning methods. Their use could remove the top layers of the release coating, causing less than optimal releases.

De-pan products quickly.

De-pan baked products while pan is still hot or warm to keep product steam from penetrating and lifting the coating from the pan surface. Try not to use metal utensils to remove products from pan.

DAILY CLEANING

 

Clean as you go.

Simply wiping still-warm pans with a clean towel is sufficient. Try not to scrape or scrub Pre-Seasoned BĀKALON pans.

Wash gently as needed with mild, pH-neutral soap and water only, before rinsing and drying.

DO NOT USE acidic cleaners, alkaline detergents or sanitizers, which can damage the BĀKALON surface and remove the pre-seasoning. Do not pre-soak or wash Pre-Seasoned BĀKALON pans in a dishwasher.

Thoroughly dry pans immediately after washing.

Warm (not hot) ovens work best.

Re-seasoning.

It is not usually required, but if the pre-seasoning has been degraded chemically or mechanically, or in extreme use circumstances, lightly lubricate the inside of the pan’s surfaces and place pan in a hot oven for 5 minutes. Repeat the process until the product release becomes satisfactory.

PERIODIC CLEANING

Scrub outside of pans.

If necessary, use a foodservice scrubbing pad and a pH-neutral detergent to clean the outside only of the BĀKALON pans if carbon builds up over long periods of usage.
