What you shouldn't be doing to your non-stick cookware
1.Exposing your non-stick cookware to sudden temperature change. Do not immerse your vessels in cold water, straight off the stove. The sudden temperature change will ruin the quality of the vessels. Wait till they cool down and then clean them.
2.Cooking on extreme heat is a sure way to kill your non-stick cookware. These vessels are designed for low to medium heat cooking and nothing otherwise.
3.Washing the non-stick cookware in the dishwasher. This might come as a surprise to many of us because not many of us are aware of this fact. The dishwasher detergent is quite strong for the non-stick cookware and it will soon spoil the surface coating of the non-stick cookware.
4. Using metal cookware on them. If you use metal spoons and ladles on non-stick cookware, they will leave scratches on the surface, ultimately bringing down the lifespan of the cookware.
5. Using heavy utensil scrubbers. It is advised to use a soft sponge or a nylon scrubber to clean the non-stick vessels because they don't need heavy scrubbing.
Finally, the more careful you are with the non-stick cookware, the longer they would last.
