The search for a nonstick pan that can actually stay nonstick in the long run can feel, well, kind of pointless. Buy a new pan and fall in love with your eggs slipping and sliding onto your plate – but just give it a few months and you’ll be chiseling bits off the bottom again.

Of course, not taking proper care of the pans is a big reason why they just don’t last as long (get away from the metal utensils!), but the fact is that the coatings will eventually become stickier. time. In addition, concerns about chemicals in PTFE coatings (also known as Teflon) evaporating into the air at high temperatures have drawn many customers away from traditional nonstick coatings. While these coatings are considered safe and have been free of harmful PFOAs since about 2015, consumers are still wary.

Ceramic cookware has emerged as one of the most popular alternatives, but it is known to lose its non-stick properties after just a few months of use. So when Material Kitchen, one of Kitchn’s many favorite cookware brands, launched a nonstick a teflon-free pan claimed to last 37 times longer than ceramic last year, well I just had to try it out. Guess what? It is as good as new, after a year plus daily use. But the good news doesn’t stop there! You can get this MVP pan for 20 percent off right now on Material’s website from now until November 29. knives, which should not be missing) and score the discount, easy!

When I took it out of the box all those months ago, I also noticed how beautiful it is, with its gleaming stainless steel base and emerald green surface. In a sea of ​​black and gray, this 10.5-inch sauté pan is quite attractive.

What is the Material Kitchen coated pan?

The first time I held the essential, I noticed it’s pretty heavy for a nonstick pan. Weighing in at 2.78 pounds, it’s just a little lighter than an All-Clad skillet of the same size (for comparison, the 10-inch nonstick skillets I already had in my cabinets were closer to 2 pounds. ounces). It makes sense given that the pan is built the same way – 5-layer construction with a copper core for even heating. (For what it’s worth, Material’s Coated Pan is quite more expensive than cheap non-stick pans, but at least half the price of an All-Clad.) If you like a super lightweight non-stick pan, this may not be the one for you, but I loved it how sturdy it felt and thought about its weight meant there’s less chance of this pan warping.

The company calls the coating “mineral nonstick,” smoke-free, as well as PFOA-free (again, all nonstick pans are now), Teflon-free, lead-free, and cadmium-free. It is reinforced with stainless steel which is why it lasts so much longer than ceramic. And don’t forget, it has that copper core. I’ve used it every day for a year and a half and it’s still as smooth as the day I took it out of the box.

My review of Material Kitchen’s coated pan

The pan heats up quickly. In a test of how quickly it heated up a cup of water compared to other nonstick and ceramic pans, using the same burner and flame level for everyone, the coated pan clocked in under a minute, while the others took about 30 seconds. took longer to boil the water. It was also noticeably more even in its heat. The water began to simmer evenly around the edges almost at the same time. The other pans started in one area and the heat took longer to spread.

I cooked pancakes with no oil or butter in the pan and they cooked perfectly golden brown and evenly no paste. Even when I added banana slices and chocolate chips, it didn’t stick. I also fried a lot of eggs and made omelets and pancakes and they all slipped out perfectly. When frying tofu, not a single cube would stick, and they cooked crispy and evenly golden brown from the center to the edge of the pan. And because the pan is oven-safe up to 500 degrees, I was able to cook a frittata and let it go one last stint in the oven.

Extremely even heat, a truly non-stick coating and a beauty to look at. All in all I am very impressed with the Coated Pan. It may be my favorite cookware I’ve owned to date.
