Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...

No more non-stick

I do not like non-stick pans, and have got rid of them.

However, I need advice about cooking meat so that it does not stick to the pan. I fried some chicken pieces just now in an ancient enamelled cast-iron pan, and there was no sticking at all.

However, I am frying bacon in a stainless-steel pan, and, even using the moderate Aga hob and a spreader, I am getting some sticking. I started the bacon cold in a dry pan.

What do readers advise ?

Incidentally, this link shows a steak being fried in a stainless-steel pan with no oil at all -- even on the steak before it was put into the pan.

As long as you prove the pan and don't turn the meat too often all should be well

No more non stick

No more for me either, apart from a milk saucepan. They don't like dishwashers very much.

It's very important that once your pan is hot enough, put the meat in and forget it. Wait until it's sealed underneath and then it should lift easily before turning over to do the other side.

non-stick pans

They should not be put in the dishwasher, the cleansing agent ruins them.
The new ceramic lined non stick pans are great!, a bit pricey though.

Non stick

I think that is mainly old non stick, John.

Plenty of brands in the UK clearly state dishwasher safe. I also think its to do with the detergents not being nearly as harsh as they used to be and don't do that glass damage that they all used to do either any more.


As far as I'm concerned, if it's not able to go into the dishwasher, it's not going into my kitchen either!

No need for it in this day and age. As far as I'm concerned, it's it's not able to go into a dishwasher, it should not be on sale.
