What is the best non-stick cookware?

Non-stick cookware can be pricier but will save you money in the long run. 

Whether you are a seasoned chef sizzling a steak or a beginner frying some eggs, good quality non-stick cookware is not only easier to clean than their stainless steel and cast iron counterparts, but it is lighter in weight and reduces food waste.

When shopping for non-stick cookware however it is important to note the difference between traditional non-stick cookware that is often made with PTFE (also known as Teflon) and ceramic non-stick cookware which is made with either a ceramic coating or glaze. 

Usually, traditionally made non-stick cookware does last longer, however, some shoppers do prefer ceramic non-stick products because it’s not standardly made with the same chemicals as traditional non-stick cookware.
