Cookware 10

Non-stick pans, metal utensils, and TV chefs

Midlife | Jan 23, 2011 07:05 PM

Every time I go near a non-stick surface with a metal spatula, spoon or tongs my wife gets upset that I'm going to scratch and ruin the surface................... yet I just saw Jacques Pepin use a metal spoon on his non-stick pan. So.................... what's the deal?

My wife says the TV chefs get a new set of cookware for every show (or something close to that) so it doesn't matter if they use metal on non-stick. I suppose that's possible, but it's hard to accept that these chefs would be so correct in their cooking and just ignore the cookware issue.

What do you think?
