Mostly most of the household has nonstick cookware. Is it really worth? If so what way.(please include energy saving )
We're phasing out all non-stick cookware in my house due to health reasons. Soon we won't have any.
i wish we had known about nonstick cookware before buying a huge set! the next set will be stainless steel, but who knows when that will be.
i would also love to read a hub on it.
Hi relache , what are the health risks using nonstick cookware?Anything to share with for the sake of hubpage family?
Relache, are you willing to provide more details on this? I haven't heard anything about health risks.
My main gripe is that the non-stick wears off so fast that I'm constantly having to replace.
I could give you lots of information, but then I might as well just write a hub about it, no?
I get a lot of request for articles that sound very much like this question - especially the added part in the brackets...interesting
I would rather read what people have to say about this in their own hubs (if they have any) where they could at least make some income from their work
I've never been happy with nonstick-- it eventually goes bad. I have an old set of HEAVY stainless steel that my mother had for years. I mostly use that and a couple of cast iron skillets.
I don't you non-stick cookware, because there is no benefit to them. If food is properly within the pan then there is no need for a surface that needs to be non-stick.
Energy saving cookware? Maybe if the cookware conducts heat more efficiently. As for non-stick cookware, avoid it if you can. A well seasoned cast iron or stainless pan or skillet will work better. Just think of all those missing flecks of teflon now commingling your scrambled eggs. Yuck!
Yeah go for a stainless steel or similar pan, my finacée is a chef, and she knows the value of a good pan
My family is phasing out non-stick too. We got a really nice, expensive set as a wedding gift and didn't want to just get rid of it, but I don't trust anything that sets off fumes strong enough to kill pet birds. I do most of my cooking in my trusty cast iron skillet and have started replacing the non-stick pots and pans with stainless steel as they fail.
If I were you, I'd use anything BUT non-stick cookware. Apparently that Teflon crap is poisonous and easy to chip off and get into food.
Cast iron cookware (yes, I know it's expensive) is really an investment. Do some research on how to season it properly and it will be quite non-sticky.
Also, stainless steel cookware, when used properly (i.e. with a little oil, fat, Pam non-stick spray, or the like and the proper temperature) will also be mostly non-stick.
For the oven I use Corning Ware or Pyrex.
Yes, these suggestions are expensive, but seriously, if taken care of, these brands/materials should last your entire life and be relatively non-sticky. When it comes to the food your family is eating, you want good stuff.
non stick definitely is not the way to go. Cast iron or good quality stainless steal you are what you eat and what you cook on will affect thE food but most important have good apatite beore you eat and you will be ok no matter what you eat

can non-stick cookware used for cooking glutens be safe for gluten free cooking?I had heard that once a nonstick pan had been used for cooking items with glutens, since its porous, it could never be used for gluten free cooking safely. Is this true?
