About Non Stick Frying Pans

Next, apply a small amount of cooking oil then wipe off the excess using a paper towel. Your new pan is seasoned and can be used.
In most instances, you should never use heat setting that’s above medium because in reality, delicate foods your frying pan is made for do not necessarily need it and also, high heat is a big enemy for delicate nonstick surfaces. Now, nonstick does not indicate that you can cook even without using oil but, this simply gives you an advantage that you can use little amount of it.
Exclusive use of olive oil is highly recommended which is dispensed from spray container. You should never pour from a bottle because it will make you to put too much from the pan. Try to improvise a little bit in the event that you can’t find an olive oil spray like for instance, recycling a window cleaner spray bottle.

To give you a quick example, using plastic, silicon, wood utensils or rubber will be smart. There’s the possibility that they may disfigure the surface despite the fact that scratches do not affect nonstick properties so try to avoid metal or any type of sharp objects to cook with your nonstick pan.
Make sure to follow it up with a thorough cleaning after every use. What you have to do here is wash it using warm water with some mild detergent but be sure that you are washing it well enough in an effort to remove all oil residue. It may bake into the surface for the next time it is heated which can cause impairment to its nonstick effect in the event that the oil is not removed.
Whether you believe it or not, treating your nonstick frying pan with respect and following these tips at the same time, rest assure that you can enjoy nonstick cooking for a very long time.
