Non-stick cookware makes cooking easier. These cookwares are designed to prevent food from sticking to their surface while cooking. Most non-stick cookwares are made using polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating.
Because of some health concerns related to the use of PTFE cookware, people have resorted to the use of PTFE free and traditional non-stick cookware, and infused coating with Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). If you are health conscious, you may consider using non-teflon or ceramic cookwares. You may also look into the cookware’s weight and heat conduction for high quality performance.
Hard-anodized aluminum will be the best option if you are considering not using PTFE based coatings. You can also opt to using porcelain enamel and ceramic titanium.
Now let’s look into some of the best non-stick cookwares available in the market today.
