Just made a corned beef brine in an Emeril Lagasse non-stick 6 qt saucepan! Is that pan reactive?

I made a brine in this saucepan earlier today, letting it cool within the pan for about 8 hours at room temperature. Is a non-stick pan considered "reactive"? Should I throw out the brine?

As long as there's no scratches in your non stick saucepan, its non reactive - so I've always thought!

Glass (pyrex) is the best for not transmitting any foreign flavors.

You are fine. Cast iron or "bare" aluminum you would not be.
