Frying Pans and Cookware: The Best Ceramic Cookware Reviews

One of the first things you need to do is deciding the type of nonstick coating when you are shopping for a nonstick cookware. Different manufacturers and companies use catchy names for nonstick coatings, but nonstick cookware currently on demand in the market today falls into one of two categories which are ceramic and PTFE. Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE is a solid and high-molecular-weight compound made of carbon and fluorine. PTFE is used as a non-stick coating for frying pans and other cookware, which is non-reactive because of its strong carbon-fluorine bonds. Ceramic is newer in the manufacturing of nonstick pans and pots, and it is considered as the most environmentally friendly and safest material used. Ceramic coatings have different colors and styles you can choose from.

There are many arguments about the best nonstick coating in the market today, with catchy names that advertisers use to promote the nonstick cookware product, so it is worth reviewing the differences before purchasing one. Some argue that ceramic nonstick frying pans have shorter life span compared to PTFE or Teflon, but the truth is whatever material you choose, it is advisable not to cook with oil or cooking spray which may decrease the life span of both materials. If you can’t help cooking without oil, it is important to completely clean the nonstick frying pan to prevent oil layers from building up which diminishes the nonstick properties of your cookware. Do not vigorously scrub the nonstick ceramic pan because this will cause the nonstick surface to be removed or chip. It will cause both PTFE and ceramic to age prematurely. So better yet, do not use oil when cooking because some food have small amounts of oil, and keeping oil away lessens the fats and cholesterol you intake for a healthy eating habit. Ceramic cookware increased in quality in recent years by applying more layers of ceramic, making it stronger and thicker.

There are arguments about PTFE, which is presumably more durable than ceramic, and some people are concerned about its safety, because PTFE coatings arguably release toxic gases when overheated. This is not always the case because as long as you use PTFE following the manufacturer’s instructions for the recommended temperature when cooking and baking, then it is safe to use it. If you use a stove pot, always cook on low and medium heat, do not preheat an empty pan and never leave a pan unattended. Both PTFE and ceramic are affordable options and more expensive ones have thicker coatings because it can improve the lifespan of the frying pan.
