Caring for Your Thermos® Shuttle Chef®

What is the proper way to clean my Shuttle Chef®? 
Inner pots can be washed like regular pots and pans with dish soap or in a dishwasher. Outer pots should only be cleaned with a damp cloth after each use and allow it to air-dry overnight with the lid open, to get rid of any food odours.

What should I do when my Shuttle Chef® inner pot has a rainbow-like discolouration?
Fret not, the discolouration is non-toxic and can be easily removed by soaking or rinsing the pot with white vinegar. It is a common and natural occurrence when stainless steel is exposed to high temperatures. Maintain your inner pots at its best by cooking with medium to low heat to prevent heat damages.

I need a replacement for my inner pot - where can I purchase it?
Currently only the RPC-3000 inner pot and TCRA-4500 inner pot are available for purchase. For other enquiries, please reach out to the team through our contact form.
