Getting The Most Out of Your Nonstick Cookware

Nonstick cookware can be a useful addition to any well-outfitted kitchen, but it is important to understand the limitations, advantages and special care requirements before selecting specific pieces. Often consumers will find a single frying pan sufficient and can add it at a great price; he or she can use a Kohls coupon, search online or visit certain discounters. Regardless of the steps one takes, proper care can mean the difference between getting the most out of one's nonstick cookware and quickly ruining it.

What follows are brief lists of do's and don'ts that can help you get the most out of your purchases:

Things To Do

Use plastic or coated utensils - The coating on nonstick cookware that makes food slide off of it is also prone to scratching. Metal utensils are likely to scratch the surface, ruining its nonstick properties. Once the surface has been damaged, it can flake off and, in some cases, wind up in food.

Use soft non-abrasive cleansers and scrub pads - Avoiding contact with anything that can cause scratches is always advisable with nonstick cookware. Taking care of the nonstick surface can extend the life of your pots and pans.

Place a cloth or paper towel between nonstick pans when storing them - Leaving a soft layer between pans when they are being stored will help protect the surface.

Limit the use of nonstick cookware to dishes that are cooked relatively quickly - While nonstick cookware is made for cooking, dishes that need to simmer for hours are best left to more standard pots or pans. If one targets the use of nonstick pans for dishes where the nonstick nature of the pan is useful and quickly taken advantage of, these tools will last much longer.

Things Not To Do

Never place nonstick cookware in the oven - Unless the product you purchase specifically states that it is oven-safe, assume that it is not. Many nonstick pans have plastic handles which will melt in the oven. Furthermore, at very high temperature the nonstick surface can be damaged.

Do not place nonstick cookware in the dishwasher - Unless the product you purchase specifically states that it is dishwasher-safe, assume that it is not. The high heat created by a dishwasher can damage nonstick cookware and exacerbate scratches.

There is no need to use cooking oil - One of the biggest health benefits of using nonstick cookware is that it is unnecessary to use fat to prevent sticking. By eliminating fat from the cooking process, one's overall intake can be greatly reduced.

Avoid storing leftovers in nonstick pans - While it is convenient to simply cover one's extra food and place it in the refrigerator, the acids in food can speed up the breakdown of the protective coating that gives nonstick cookware its nonstick properties.

My Publix Trip $-0.99 (over 100% saved)

I'm down to my last two Publix $5/$30 coupons and the stores I frequent are wiped out of the moneymakers. One store even put up signs by the Sundown and GasX limiting 5 per day per customer, and that still didn't help. Anyway, I probably got my share this month and am having a little higher totals than I'm used to. I almost died spending $8 last week for a shop to get more Angel Soft TP. I feel a shift in the market, there are more coupon shoppers out there so its important to plan early and shop early.
In my list you'll see some italicized items that go on sale Saturday with the new Green Advantage Buy flyer. These are the deals I plan to get this month when they are in stock. I suspect my store with limits will have it on sominex and phazyme too, but thats okay because I don't ever get more than four.
Well this shop went pretty well and I didn't feel guilty getting a lot of vitamins since today is the last day of the sale. I did leave some Sundown for another late shopper like me. There was plenty of cereal, dog food, salad dressing and even method dish soap but I didn't have any more coupons for that. I saved  $161.49 and my total was -0.99, but after tax I paid $0.27 with my Publix gift card.
Speaking of gift cards, be sure to check my last post about the $25 Publix Gift Card Giveaway and enter to win it today!

My Publix Trip - Saved 94.4%

As the end of the GAB flyer and the end of the month approach, I'm trying to use up some coupons and get some of the deals that I belatedly realized would be nice to have. I spent a little more than a dollar on the product, but this was a tax heavy shop so I thought I'd make sure tax shows since we still have to pay it. This is a lot bigger trip than normal over $100, I like to keep them around half of this to $55 so I can use both a competitor $5/25 and a Publix $5/30 on each trip. But I'm running low and saving my "gold" coupons for the last couple days of the month when there probably won't be as much overage to get since the vitamin deals will be over this Friday. There is phazyme and sominex in the next GAB flyer (starting Saturday) but I bet those will be out of stock a lot.
