Should one season nonstick cookware?
I've lost count of the nonstick pots and pans I've replaced over the years because of the coating eventually flaking off. I hate throwing things away but am not keen on ingesting bits of industrial who-knows-what. I've just gone on a virtual shopping spree to replace two more pots and in the course of researching brands came across a blog whose author states that nonstick cookware should be seasoned periodically. This is news to me, and I wonder whether anyone else has heard of this. Has anyone here done this, and, if so, did it make a difference in the longevity of the pan?
I should add that I always use wood or plastic utensils and hand-wash my dishes, so it's disheartening that, no matter how much I spend on a pan, its deterioration seems to be inevitable.
