I see some cracks on the bottom of my cookware. Should I be concerned?

You may see some minor cracks on the bottom of the pot and this happens because of too much heat on one spot. They should not affect the performance of the pot in anyway and over time they get sealed by the foods oils. One other way to seal the crack is if you can heat half a cup of milk in the pot on low heat for about 20-30 minutes, then turn off the heat (don’t have to wait for the milk to boil) and wait till the milk cools down to room temperature. This can seal the crack and prevent it from growing. The chances for these cracks to happen can be greatly reduced if you use the diffuser and always ensure you increase the heat gradually and only go upto medium heat.
