Instructions packaged with my newly purchased Imusa sauté pan:
BEFORE USING: Wash the product and dry it completely. GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Do not store food in metal products blah blah blah ... IN THE KITCHEN: Use medium or low heat. For nonstick products, use nylon, plastic or wooden utensils blah blah blah ... CAUTION: Please keep pet birds out of kitchen. A bird's respiratory system is sensitive to many fumes, including tile fumes from extremely overheated nonstick pans. CLEANING: Do not pour cold water into this product when hot. Wash it inside and out blah blah blah ...
