Cookware comes in three mediums: nonstick, stainless, or cast iron. Most people have a favorite, and least favorite. I truly love my non-stick. Want to know why? My top 3 facts are.....
1) It requires little maintaince: A little dish soap plus a sponge equals my pans clean up minutes. No use of special cleaners, polishers, or seasoning is required. Now, some non stick pans are dishwasher safe, making it even more convientent for busy people.
2) Little fat is needed: This is the main reason why non stick pans where created in the 60's. The demand for a healthier style of cooking that will require very little or zero oil. Many health freaks, people on diets, and newbie cooks love this feature about non stick cookware. I can cook a chicken breast with zero fat!
3) Beginner cooks can use it with ease: I always stress any level of cook can use non stick cookware versus stainless or cast iron. That is why it is the choice to have when living in a large household with multiple cooks!
To make your non stick pans last longer, please:
-Avoid aerosol non stick sprays!
-Hand wash only.
-Medium heat only.
