Healthy nonstick cookware exists and can make a huge difference in your health and ease of cooking. I recommend 2 brands with excellent products. One might think using the terms healthy and nonstick together may seem like a contradiction. Times are changing, and DuPont in my healthy nonstick cookware selections. It has long been considered that the healthier cookware choices are glass, cast iron, and stainless steel. Enameled cast iron is very popular, and with a non-porous enameled surface, it is nearly nonstick. Today there are two cookware brands I’d like to introduce you to that offer healthy alternatives to nonstick performance.
Healthy Nonstick Cookware
Scanpan Cookware is a company from Denmark that makes a carbon steel core cookware coated with a ceramic/titanium surface. This ceramic/titanium surface is nearly as good a nonstick as what DuPont makes. The cookware is relatively light, and it is priced reasonably well.
Check out the details about Scanpan Cookware. Scanpan now makes 8 product lines, in stainless steel and healthy nonstick cookware.
NOTE: I have been using Scanpan classic cookware for several years now and it still has an excellent nonstick surface. The best part: it’s dishwasher safe! Yes, a healthy nonstick cookware that is dishwasher safe.
Cuisinart GreenGourmet is a healthy nonstick cookware that is very good quality. I’ve been testing a GreenGourmet skillet for several years and the performance is still excellent. I would not put it on the same level as the DuPont style nonstick, but it does still slide food off remarkably well. Cuisinart GreenGourmet comes in 2 varieties, a stainless steel outside or anodized aluminum. The one I’m testing is anodized aluminum. It heats very evenly and retains heat exceptionally well.
Here are a couple alternatives for those looking to use healthy cookware and something different from the usual cast iron, glass, or stainless steel. There will be much more info on these brands coming in the near future.
