@Foodpickle Will I ruin my non stick pan for omelettes if I cook fish in it?
Sam is a trusted home cook.
No, not at all. Just wash it out..it'll be fine.
Kari is the manager of Whisk, a kitchenware store in Brooklyn.
The only thing that will ruin a non-stick pan is using any metal utensil, or a metal scouring pad, on it. Stick to wood, nylon, or silicone spatulas, and you'll be fine!

Not if you don't scrape the bottom with the tines of a fork (which some people seem inclined to do).
It depends on the heat you are using. Non stick should not be heated over very high heat.
I wipe the pan with lemon juice on some kitchen paper and then rinse with cold water. It gets rid on any residual taste. You mustn't leave any residual lemon juice in the pan

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
