How to care for the best non-stick cookware sets
With the right cleaning and care, you can prevent your non-stick cookware sets from flaking and emitting harmful chemicals.
1. Avoid overheating. Although most non-stick cookware sets can handle cook temps of up to 260°C, you should stick to preheating with low-to-medium heat. For those pans that are oven-safe, avoid leaving them in the oven for too long. You’ll also want to pull them off still-hot burners when not in use.
2. Vent the room. When using extremely high heat, prevent fumes from harming the environment and irritating your lungs by switching on your exhaust fan or cracking a window.
3. Avoid metal utensils that can scratch non-stick coating.
4. Hand-wash with mild dish soap and a gentle sponge. Several non-stick cookware sets are dishwasher safe, but they’ll last longer if you hand-wash.
Should I throw away my scratched non-stick cookware?
When you see scratches on non-stick cookware it's a sign that it might be time to get a new set. It means that the non-stick coating is starting to come off your cookware, so you may start to notice your food getting stuck to it more often. It could also mean that it starts to flake off into your food, too, so to be safe, it's best to dispose of your old set and welcome something new into your kitchen.
