Detailing the care, unboxing, and usage of this colorful charming ceramic cookware
I’ll say it. I’m a cookware snob. I don’t enjoy cooking when food gets stuck. I don’t enjoy cooking with tephlon chemicals. I don’t enjoy ugly black cookware sitting on my stove. 🤷🏼♀️
Single-handedly, Caraway has reinvented cookware. A true non-stick set (without the chemicals) that not only performs, but looks amazing in my kitchen.
Unboxing my Caraway Skillet & Dutch Oven:
Everything arrived right to my door in a very timely fashion (in gorgeous blue boxes). Packaging was well-designed and kept the cookware safe during shipping.
I ordered the Gray option; though they have several colors to choose from. Ranging from blue, green, pink and neutrals like cream and white, there is a color option for every style kitchen.
Each cookware piece comes with its own cork trivet. If you order the entire cookware set, it comes with its own cabinet organizer & lid divider. Sooo functional and efficient, guys!
Say NO to Tephlon. YES to Ceramic.
Growing up in rural West Virginia, I have first-hand experience dealing with tephlon. We lived down-river from a chemical plant that produced the non-stick material. It was determined this plant’s chemical (perfluorooctanoic acid or C8) had been seeping into the local water supply for decades. Heath officials and scientists were assigned to do research studies on the chemical exposure; all of which returned probable links of C8 to conditions from cancers to thyroid disease.

That experience was enough to stop me from using tephlon. And it gives me ample reason to invest in my family’s health and kitchen going forward.
How to care for your Caraway Cookware:
-Before your first use, hand wash your pans with warm, soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth (including the bottom) before sitting on a burner. Preheat for up to 90 seconds before adding oil. Never leave your empty pan on a hot burner.
-Always use your Caraway pans on low to medium heat. Ceramic holds heat more efficiently than standard pans, thus not requiring high temps. High temps can ruin your ceramic coating/non-stick feature.
-Use less oil than you typically would with a standard pan. Never use cooking sprays. They can leave a residue on the ceramic.
-Never use metal utensils or ones with rough edges inside your cookware. Instead, use nylon, silicone, or wooden utensils to protect your ceramic.
-Avoid sliding your pan on stove burners. This may scratch the steel base on your cookware.
-Cookware handles will become hot if placed in the oven or heated on the stovetop for extended times. Remember to use an oven mitt or potholder just in case. Each of the Caraway pans are oven safe up to 500 degrees.
-Caraway also provides complementary cork trivets with each pan to protect your countertops from heat.
-Allow your cookware to cool completely before submerging it in cold water. Thermal shock can crack the ceramic non-stick coating.
-Caraway pans are hand-wash only, again to preserve the precious ceramic. Don’t put them in the dishwasher!

Any idea how to fix discoloration/browning on the bottom of the pan? I bought the cream and the bottom looks like it got burnt! Soap and water don’t work
I would maybe try Bar keeper’s friend on those spots. That’s my go-to for hard to clean surfaces. Start with a little trial area and see how it works. If that doesn’t help, I would try messaging Caraway directly. Hopefully they have an answer for you!
