I would love to have a non-stick skillet or saute pan that can go into the oven and stand heat upward of 450°. Any suggestions for me?
Teflon pans are really good. They are non stick, light, and go in the oven. You can cook anything in them, from delicate fish to crepes.
I have two sauté pans, both of which can go in the oven. I've got a Tefal brand one (one the Jamie Oliver ones) and a Le Creuset non-stick. They both work great, though I think the Le Creuset is holding up better to constant use than the Tefal one.
Scanpan is another option, though a pricey one. It has a titanium and ceramic coating that can withstand use of metal utensils and can go into the oven or broiler.
I found my Scanpan on sale!
I love my scanpan. It may be pricey but it willlast forever. It can be put in the oven.
Teflon will tell you their pans are non-toxic up to 500F. Do you take the temp of your pan before you cook in it? Some tests have shown that a parakeet will die in a room where a teflon pan is being heated.
My favorite "non-stick" surface is my enamel cast iron pans, many of which I've purchased in 2nd hand stores. Considering many of them were antique when I bought them, they'll outlive me before the surface is damaged! I also season my cast iron pans to the point of being non-stick. It IS possible to have a non-stick surface be NON-TOXIC.
I have been trying to use my cast iron as much as I can, but I find that for egg dishes, mine is just not non stick enough. I basically use my scanpan for frittatas and such.
Thank you all for your recommendations. I couldn't find a Scanpan that's rated for higher than 350° and T-fal, where I could find any information at all, seems to have the same limitation.
Chef Ono, I tried searching online for Teflon cookware and despite specifying Teflon, I got all kind of other non-stick cookware showing up. Can you give me the names of some brands you like for this kind of cookware? Maybe that will help me find what I'm looking for. Thanks!
according to this, scanpan nonstick is rated to 500 degrees. http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-686840/?affsrcid=Aff0001&mr:trackingCode=40518D3D-AAC1-DF11-98FF-0019B9C043EB&mr:referralID=NA&mr:adType=pla&mr:ad=30153266381&mr:keyword=&mr:match=&mr:filter=24156051701&origin=pla
Lots of choices, but I've been very happy with my All-Clad 12" for 10 years for stove to oven uses.
Chef Ono, the d5 line doesn't have any non-stick pans, per All-Clad's website, but their MC2 line does; is that what you meant?
Thanks! This appears to be exclusive to Williams Sonoma, which is why it wouldn't show on All-Clad's website. There are a surprisingly large number of negative reviews on this pan at W-S's website, but I will take your advice and wait for a sale.
