Avoid Unwanted Buildup on Non-Stick Cookware
For the third time this year, you’re shopping for a non-stick skillet. You absolutely adore preparing healthy foods such as steak stir-fry, vegetable omelets, and sautéed mushrooms in this useful cooking implement. Unfortunately, your delicious foods start sticking to a new skillet after only a couple of months of use. If you can relate to this scenario, learning how to avoid unwanted buildup on your non-stick cookware is crucial.
Beware of Soy Lecithin
Healthy cooks often utilize cooking sprays made from canola oil, olive oil, or sunflower oil. These handy sprays typically add few calories to the foods you prepare. While they may seem innocent enough, cooking sprays can actually wreak havoc on your non-stick cookware. Over time, using them causes residue to accumulate on your pots and pans. This filmy residue prevents your food from cooking evenly. Surprisingly, it also causes your food to stick to your non-stick cookware. The additive soy lecithin contained in cooking sprays is believed to be the culprit that causes this phenomenon.
To avoid the wrath of cooking sprays, consider investing in an oil mister. You can fill a mister with your favorite cooking oils. Also, avoid utilizing metal utensils as they can scratch the surface of your cookware. Use plastic or wooden ones instead. Always wash your non-stick cookware by hand, even if they’re supposed to be dishwasher safe. High heat and potent, dishwasher approved detergents can ruin the non-stick surfaces of your cookware.
Tips to Enjoy Safe Cooking at Home
By being vigilant, you can enjoy cooking with your non-stick pots and pans for years to come. However, regardless of how careful you are, they won’t last forever. When the surface of your non-stick cookware begins to peel, you need to replace it. To learn more about how to prepare real, healthy foods with non-stick pots and pans, consider scheduling a free, initial meeting with a representative at a Metabolic Research Center near you.
