With today's improved nonstick, scratching is much less of a problem to worry about. And even if a minor scratch were to occur, it only affects the appearance—not the cooking or easy cleanup performance—of the pan. To avoid scratching, don't use sharp-edged or metal utensils when cooking. Some of the more durable Teflon® quality tested nonstick coatings like Teflon® Platinum and Teflon® Platinum Plus resist damage from metal utensils with careful use.
Hello Vellur. Scratches in a nonstick is not much to worry, as long as there are no chips that goes into the food during cooking. Once it starts to chip, there is the risk. It's why nonstick pans must only be used for quick cooking and not really the workhorse. You might want to try a diamond nonstick pan - its a lot more durable in most aspects. Hope that helped.
