  • It doesn't matter how expensive or inexpensive your nonstick cookware are. The plain, honest truth is that the nonstick coating, no matter how thick and ingrained in the metal it is, will peel off eventually. The question is really how long will it take before you need to replace it for a brand new one.

    Branded pans are expected to last longer than nonstick pans that are not tried and tested but even these generic pans will deliver nonstick results while still new. The trick to using nonstick pans and making them last is really how you treat your pans.

    Do you make the mistake of using metal cooking utensils on your pans? If you do it frequently, then expect that nonstick coating to last for a shorter time than if you used softer, nonstick-friendly cooking utensils. The surface is meant to be slick and pock-mark free so while it's still in pristine condition is the optimum time to make it last as long as it can.
