How To Make Your Non Stick Frying Pan Last Longer

When buying a non stick frying pan in the market, there are 3 things that should come with it and these are nylon sponge, wooden spatula and of course, owner’s manual which explains how to take care of the product properly. Good thing is, most of the high quality pans come with an instruction booklet.

Before you start using your newly bought non stick frying pan, you should wash it thoroughly in a hot soapy water with a dishcloth or sponge, followed by rinsing in hot water and then, dry it out completely. Next, apply a small amount of cooking oil then wipe off the excess using a paper towel. This makes the pan seasoned and ready for use.

Oftentimes, it is not recommended to use heat setting that is above medium because truth is, delicate foods your frying pan is made for are not requiring such and high heat is a big enemy for delicate nonstick surfaces at the same time. Now, nonstick does not necessarily mean that you can cook foods without oil however, it gives you the benefit of using just a little amount of it.

The exclusive use of olive oil is advisable which is dispensed from a spray container. You must never pour from a bottle as it’ll make you put too much from the pan. Say for example that you can’t find an olive oil spray, you may want to improvise by recycling a window cleaner spray bottle.

If you want to be sure that your pan’s nonstick surface will last for a long time, there are some things that you have to be reminded of. For example, it’ll be smart to use plastic, silicon, wood utensils or rubber. 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.

After each use, you should follow it up with a thorough cleaning. Here, you need to wash it using warm water with mild detergent but wash it well enough to be able to remove 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.

Treating your nonstick frying pan with respect and doing these tips as well, you can be certain that you can enjoy nonstick cooking for quite a long time.
