What are the rules for heating an empty non-stick pan ? I ask, because we are told again and again not to do it, but on television I often see well-known cooks doing it. Will it damage the pan ? Will it damage the people that eat what you have cooked in the pan ? How hot must the pan be before there is a risk ? I regularly heat a little oil in an otherwise empty pan, and let it run like water before I add whatever food I want to cook. Will that be dangerously hot ?
