About Non Stick Frying Pans
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.
Just before you start using your newly bought non stick frying pan, you have to 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 and then, wipe off the excess by using a paper towel. Your new pan is seasoned and can be used.
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 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. Avoid pouring from a bottle as this will only make you to put too much from the pan. In the event that you can’t find an olive oil spray, try to improvise by recycling a window cleaner spray bottle.
If you want to be sure that the nonstick surface of your pan is going to last for long, then there are a few things that you should be mindful about. For instance, it will be wise to use plastic, silicon, wood utensils or rubber. Despite the fact that scratches do not affect nonstick properties, there’s a possibility that they may disfigure the surface so make sure 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. 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.
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.
