Question:

Non-stick saucepans vs. stainless steel?

What are the pros and cons of non-stick and stainless steel pots and pans ?Thanks

Answer:

Non Stick is good for frying, sauteeing, etc., but I find they don't tend to last as long as regular stainless steel pans because they can get scratched relatively easy if you use metal stirring utensils. Stainless steel is good for soups, stews, or if you plan to use a metal stirring utensil (whisk, fork, etc.). I use both non-stick and stainless steel pots and pans. I think the most useful pots/pans I have are my medium-sized, non-stick frying pan and my small, stainless steel dutch oven.

My family says I am a great cook, but I can not make a thing in a stainless steel pan. Non stick is the way to go,plus easy clean up is an extra perk.

Non stick doesnt stick but after time the non stick doesnt stay non stick and then time to replace Stainless steel. some things may not stick but its best to put down a little pam, or cooking oil, and or aluminum foil

NEVER cook eggs in anything other than a nonstick pan. They stick real good! Though nonstick surface does wear off eventually and you have to get new ones..
