Is it Bad to Use Nonstick Frying Pans?

Nonstick Skillets for Avoiding Sticky Situations

Nonstick Frying Pan Buyers’ Guide

How to clean a burnt non-stick pan?

You should wash your non-stick pan after each use. Avoid putting it in the dishwasher, even if it is considered dishwasher-safe. Rinse the pan with soft soap and lukewarm water. Keep in mind that hot water and concentrated detergents can harm your pan. For more thorough cleaning, soak the pan in warm and soapy water in a stopped-up sink. Use a solution of equal parts water and baking soda to make a paste that will scrub away the tougher parts stuck on the pan. Do not scrub hard and never use metallic sponges as they will ruin the pan. If you still think it’s dirty, heat the pan with two tablespoons of vegetable oil and three tablespoons of salt, lift the pan and shake it until the substance is evenly distributed, and let it cool. Follow up with a light hand wash. To avoid rusting of the pan, always dry it thoroughly before storing it.

How to season a nonstick pan?

Seasoning a nonstick frying pan implies using a thin layer of oil to fill the small pores on the surface and avoid sticking food. Most nonstick fry pans don’t require seasoning, but it can help elongate the life of your pan. To season your nonstick fry pan, start by washing it after you take it out of the packaging. Once it is dry, season it by rubbing a thin layer of vegetable or canola oil (not olive oil) onto the surface. Then, heat the pan on medium heat for around 1-2 minutes. You can also put it in a 300 degree F oven for around 20 minutes, but always read the manual to see if your pan is oven safe. Once the oil cools, wipe any excess amount off the pan and give it a quick sponge wash.

As a talented young cook I began to move up the career ladder – just a few years later I'm worked as a chef in the most prestigious restaurants. Early in my career, I attended many workshops and seminars in Europe and the United States. The training took place at Michelin 3*-4* restaurants and cooking schools.
