Factors that affect the longevity of your Rachel Ray cookware

It’s important to clean your Rachel Ray stainless steel cookware regularly to prevent the build-up of dirt and grease. But did you know that other factors can affect the lifespan of your Rachel Ray pots and pans?

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The type of food you cook: If you frequently cook acidic foods like tomatoes or citrus fruits, the acid can break down the finish on your Rachel Ray cookware over time.
  • How you clean your Rachel Ray cookware: If you use harsh detergents or scrub too aggressively, you can also damage the finish on your pots and pans.
  • How often you use your Rachel Ray pots and pans: If you're cooking every day, they will naturally start to show wear and tear faster than if you only use them once in a while.
  • The temperature level when you cook: Cooking foods on high heat or regularly having burnt food on the surface can also cause the finish to break down over time.
  • Cookware Material: The cookware material can have an impact on its longevity since not all materials are equally durable or heat-resistant.

With that said, let’s get started on how to clean your Rachel Ray cookware!
