Nonstick pans are quite useful, but they can be damaged fairly easily. Here are the things that are ruining your nonstick pans.
1. Using cooking sprays
They build up over time and are hard to remove.
2. Letting the pan heat up before adding oil or butter
It can release harmful toxins into your food.
3. Cleaning your pans in the dishwasher
It's better to wash them by hand.
4. You have the heat too high
Not only will it damage the coating, but it also releases harmful toxins.
5. Cooking with metal utensils
Sticking with silicone or wooden utensils will make your pans last longer.
