When it comes to buying non-stick cookware, there are a plethora of options out there under different types of coating, multiple layers, lids, warranty, price, etc. Hence, you should consider all these aspects. Let’s have a brief look at them:
Several types of pans with different coatings are available, which include:
- Induction Pans
These types of cookware feature magnet-grade stainless steel strips on its surface. That enables them to soak up the energy from the induction. Also, it transfers the heat to the bottom of the non-stick coated pan, allowing them to cook the food. Non-stick pans can also be set apart based on their coating.
- PTFE or PFOA
This kind of coating is one of the oldest non-stick coatings used to make pans non-stick. Today, they are known by the name Teflon.
- Silicone Non-stick Coating
One of the safest coatings is Silicone non-stick coating. They are digging out from Silica to produce a flexible rubber coating used to produce numerous cookwares.
- Ceramic Coating
Ceramic coating has been a well alternative to a Teflon coating since they don’t contain PTFE or any other harmful toxic chemicals. The only cons of this coating are its longevity as it tears off quickly compared to Teflon coating.
Non-stick cookware can be made from stainless steel, ceramic, aluminium, or cast iron material. All these materials have their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your cooking needs, you can choose any one of them. For instance: If you want that skillet would be lightweight along durable, then aluminium is a great choice.
- Number of Layers
Not all cookware has a single layer of non-stick, few come with multiple layers of coating. The more coatings in a pan, the better will be the taste of the food and the more will be the durability of the pan. The cookware offered in the Indian market almost has a three-layer coating, but brands like Wonderchef and prestige offer cookware with 5 layers of the non-stick coating.
Weight is also very important when it comes to non-stick cookware, after all, cookware serves a regular cooking purpose.

In a midway, aluminium tends to be lighter and durable as well.
Cookware with a handle gives you ease to carry & transport food when the pan is hot. Also, it ensures better safety and convenience while cooking food at high temperatures.
