What has your experience been with non-stick pots?

Howard-2 | Nov 21, 200307:44 AM     16

About 2 years ago I bought one of those modern-day non-stick frying pans to try. I thought the one I got was of reasonable quality--it was nice and heavy, and not too cheap.

For the first 2 months or so, it performed fabulously, and I was very careful with it--only wooden utensils, wash it carefully, etc. I was so impressed that I bought a wok with a non-stick coating.

But then it started to deteriorate, and today it is not at all the pan it was at first. The same thing happened with the non-stick wok--it eventually stopped performing as it did at first. Now, food sticks to both pans--probably not quite as much as pots that are not non-stick, but still, the food does stick.

I'm sticking with my trusty cast-iron frying pan.

But I wonder what experience others have had with these pots and pans.
