Say NO to OIL, Say YES to Non-Stick
Well, with the growing brands introducing “Slim Fit”, the enormous pressure one faces to stay in Trend (thanks to all the actors on television advertising flat bellies), being thin has become a wishful state for everyone. The one thing that seems to shatter this poor little wish is OIL. No matter how much you burn your fat, unless and until your diet is off OIL, your wish shall not be granted. At least not until mother fairy spins her magic wand J
To add to all this, how is one supposed to overcome the temptation of mouthwatering, golden brown, crispy Dosas right out of the Tava with off course the Oil rich Potatoes Curry to complement with.
Bringing solace to such foodies the advent of Non-Stick cookware came as a beacon of hope.
Advantages of Non-Stick Cookware
Nonstick cookware is easy to use and clean, as the slick coating helps to keep food from sticking, and it also is easy to clean afterwards. Health-conscious cooks like that they can use a lot less oil (a little oil, to lubricate the cooking surface, is still usually recommended) than they would with uncoated cookware. Uncoated stainless pans do a great job at producing that beautiful and delicious browning. The drawback is that burnt-on food needs lots of oil and some elbow grease to get off.
Some Precautions you must take
Exposing nonstick pans to very high temperatures will, however, release other potentially toxic chemicals into the air, so if you use nonstick pans, take precautions: Never heat a pan empty on a burner, keep your burner on medium or low, and throw out a pan if its coating is starting to chip or flake (to keep this from happening, avoid using sharp or metal utensils). You can also find more eco-friendly nonstick finishes on the market, such as the ceramic coating.
