Looking for tips on caring for a non stick cook pan

blackbookali | Feb 5, 2009 07:09 PM

We recently purchased a Faberware non stick pan and are loving it. While I prefer our all clad and cast iron for certain searing jobs, nothing does flaky fish justice like the faberware in my experience.

Now after a few months i have noticed some "light scratches" after washing the pan and, yes one nick. Im not too worried but I feel like I need some tips on caring for the pan. I'm not rough with a spatula when I use any pan but my spatulas are metal - should I get a plastic one? Are there high temp ones any of you recommend? I wash the pan with a soft sponge but since we dont have a dishwasher I think the nick may have come from laying the pan on something sharp on the dish rack. Any help is much appreciated - I can't spare another $50 right now!
