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. Many nonstick cookware 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 (PTFE) is made up of carbon and fluorine with a solid and high-molecular-weight structure. PTFE is widely used in manufacturing nonstick cookware due to its strength owed to its carbon-fluorine bonds, which makes it non-reactive. 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 various colors and styles you can choose from.

There are arguments about the best nonstick coating in the market today, and advertisers use catchy names to promote the nonstick cookware product, so it is worth reviewing the differences before buying one. Some people may argue that ceramic nonstick pans have shorter life span compared to PTFE or Teflon, but this is not the case because 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 critical to completely clean the nonstick frying pan so that oil layers will not build 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 wear immediately. 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 also arguments behind PTFE, which is presumably more durable than ceramic, but some people are concerned about its health safety, because PTFE coatings can release toxic gases when overheated. However, we found out that with the proper usage, you can use PTFE safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions for the recommended temperature when cooking and baking. 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.
