How do you train cats to use a kitty door?


I recently had a cat door installed on the basement door for efficiency reasons. I keep their food in the basement and they usually come and go, but with the kitty door installed so we can keep the door closed, they seem confused. They are fine if I hold the flap open and one cat will figure out how to get back out (though he doesn't seem to understand to do it again to go in). The other cat, however, needs me to open the flap both ways or she'll spend hours just sitting at it and poking the flap slightly to get back out. How can I help them adjust to the change?
