You Should Be Seasoning Your Non Stick Cookware

Seasoning your Non Stick Cookware is not necessary, but it can help your Non Stick surface last longer.

Picture this: you wake up, and cook some eggs. Not only do they come out perfectly cooked, but no mess, not even a scrap, is left behind on your pan.

There’s no better feeling than cooking with an excellent Non Stick Pan. Not only does food remove easily, but cleanup takes just seconds.. But to keep your Pan in peak condition, it

requires proper care

, and one way to care for your Non Stick Cookware is to season it.

While this might seem redundant, since Non Stick Cookware like ours comes with a layer of Non Stick coating that acts as a seasoning, it is actually far from it. Seasoning your Non Stick Pots and Pans will ultimately help with the longevity and effectiveness of that non stick surface.

What Is Seasoning?

"Seasoning" your

Non Stick Cookware

means applying a thin layer of oil (usually a vegetable oil)  to fill small pores in the surface coating and further prevent food from sticking. Best of all, a properly seasoned

Non Stick Frying Pan

surface can help reduce the need for excess cooking fats, which is excellent, especially if you’re trying to cook without oil.

Whether it’s a

Saute Pan



, or Frying Pan, seasoning the non stick surface can ensure there are no uneven spots on your pots and pans as you continue to use them. It's a good idea to do, and quite similar to seasoning a Cast Iron Skillet or

Carbon Steel Frying Pan


How to Season a Non Stick Frying Pan

Using the soft side of a sponge, wash the surface of your Non Stick Pan with warm water and dish soap.

Once your pan is dry, lightly rub vegetable or canola oil onto the surface of the pan.

Heat the oiled Frying Pan over medium heat on a burner for 1-2 minutes and then remove it from the burner and let it cool.

Wipe any excess oil from the pan with a paper towel and you're good to go!

This process will help your Non Stick surface remain stick-resistant, especially if you repeat this seasoning process, once every month.  From there, your pan will be easier to clean and easier to cook with.
