Frequently asked questions
Meyer cookware uses 18/10 stainless steel, what exactly does that mean?
The 18/10 means that the steel contains other metals to make it stronger and more corrosion resistant.
Steel is an alloy made from Iron with up to 8 other alloys added, depending on the quality. For steel to be classed as 'stainless' it must contain at least 10.5% of the alloy Chromium. It is the Chromium that creates an oxygen proof barrier that prevents the steel from rusting (or 'staining'). Higher levels of Chromium and the addition of other alloys increase the corrosion resistance of the surface.
One of the most common alloys added to stainless steel is Nickel because it too is a very unreactive material. Therefore, the 18/10 used in Stellar cookware means that the stainless steel contains 18% Chromium and 10% Nickel, both of these are added to ensure the steel lasts longer.
What does hard anodised mean?
Hard anodised cookware has undergone an electrochemical process that has changed the soft molecular structure of its metal aluminium base to become twice as hard as stainless steel.
What temperature can my Prestige bakeware withstand?
Prestige bakeware is oven safe up to 240 degrees (gas mark 9). If the bakeware is used in temperatures above this you run the risk of your bakeware warping. Prestige bakeware is not suitable for microwave use but can be used in the dishwasher and stored in the freezer.
Please note that prolonged dishwasher use can have an affect on non-stick coatings. Hand wash is recommended and the use of abrasive cleaners should be avoided.
