I am the happy owner of a pan with this fantastic Eterna coating. I have a question as we had a discussion last night :-) Is it ok to remove the hot pan form the stove and poor Cold Water from the tap into it to start cleaning the pan, as after a few minutes the Water is heated and will help cleaning the pan. I’m very exited to hear your comment and thank you in advance.
Hi Kirsten, I would always advise to let the pan cool down before adding cold water. If you add cold water to a hot pan, you risk warping the pan… you know when a pan gets a wavy bottom and never sits flat again?
Hope that helps!
Many of the brands you list as most popular and rate highest are made in countries without strict standards. I am concerned about leaching of toxic metals into food prepared for my family. The Cuisanart cookware is said to be as good as the more expensive All-Clad made in America; but it is made in China and in France. Is there cause for worry? Which brand do you recommend as safest? Thank you
Hi Eloise, I know many people have an issue buying product made in China so its understandable. Truth is, just about everything you can think of is outsourced to China.
So here’s my take on this: the companies that outsource the production of their brands to Chinese factories are still responsible for the quality of those products. It’s their job to make sure the products comply with US/North American standards of performance and safety. And it’s in their best interests to make sure their brand is consistent and high quality.
I don’t know if that helps allay your fears at all? Personally, I’m a big fan of stainless steel cookware as the best choice, you can see my top 3 choices here.
Hi, not sure if I am using the right form, but can you please advice if the Gotham pan is safe to use? I do not want to use the Teflon pans. Thank you for your excellent website Jen
Hi Jen, thanks for stopping by! As far as I know, Gotham pans are ceramic coated which means no teflon. I would just be wary of the claims in the TV ad for those pans…. if it seems to good to be true, it usually is….
