Hard anodized + non stick??

Sirrith | Nov 17, 2013 06:49 PM

I've been looking at anodized aluminium cookware of late, and I'm confused as to why so much of it is hard anodized then coated with some non-stick material? Is bare anodized aluminium sticky? Doesn't coating the pan basically nullify any advantage the hardness of the anodizing provides, since once the coating starts wearing off you are left with a useless pan?
Thanks :)
