Nonstick pans and high heat

JS | Mar 17, 2005 02:47 PM

Most of the nonstick pans I've bought have come with warnings not use the pan on high heat, explaining that the high heat destroys the non-stick coating on the pan.

However, I've also seen Chinese chefs use pans and woks that seem to be non-stick AND they're always used on high heat. Is there a a specific type of material that is both nonstick and can be used on high heat that I don't know about? Any info appreciated.
