Using non-stick; hints & tips!
Non-stick re-useable baking paper is pretty much a must have - it makes life MUCH easier! Shop the full collection. Many of these tips came directly from our customers via this post. Its a fantastic example of why we place such value on our little cooker community! Remember, you always use non-stick on the simmering (right hand) plate. Not the hotplate!
Simmering set cooking tips...
Making fried eggs? If you remove the sheet from the hot plate once the egg has cooked the change of temperature releases the egg so it doesn’t stick.
Leave the non-stick on for about 30 secs before you put the egg on so it’s hot and the egg doesn’t spread as much!
Pop the lid down once you have cracked the egg onto the non-stick sheet, super speedy fried eggs! It does cook the yolk more thoroughly than some like though so be warned!
Halloumi and bacon both cook well on the simmering sets, try cooking the bacon before the eggs (if you are making breakfast!) and it will give a little extra flavour!
How about making toasties with your Aga range cookers hotplate?! Butter the outside of the bread slices, fill with yummy things and wrap in a sheet so all is protected from the surfaces. It helps to put the non-stick sheet on for a few seconds before adding the sandwich.
Wash before first use - a little warm soapy water will do the trick.
After washing, season by popping some olive oil on and warming thoroughly. Wash again before storing.
Wash your non-stick after use with warm soapy water again or, even easier, just pop it through the dishwasher!
Use either side of your non-stick sheets, there is no 'right' side!
Store in rolled or flat form. Don't fold it or crease it!
Do not use sharp implements or scourers on your non-stick sheet, this includes knives! Don't cut food on it.
All non-stick sheets darken with use - it's totally normal and it won't affect how it works.
Do you have a gas or electric module with your cooker? - don't put our non-stick sheets or Bake-O-Glide on a flame or element.
Bake-O-Glide & our non-stick is good to 260c / 500f / gas mark 8. Do not use on hotplate!
