Your Kitchen Sponge Is Gross, and Cleaning It Isn’t Helping

  Your Kitchen Sponge Is Gross, and Cleaning It Isn’t Helping Cleaning your kitchen sponge may be backfiring.A team of researchers in Germany discovered that cleaning sponges by putting them in the microwave or boiling them in water were ineffective in reducing their bacterial load. In fact, regularly cleaned sponges weren’t any cleaner than those that were never cleaned.

And while you might go for your jack-of-all-trades cast iron or your trusty egg-ready nonstick , ceramic will be the true workhorse of your kitchen —if it isn’t already. But ceramic cookware is pretty darn great . Much like traditional nonstick pans , they’re ideal for cooking a fluffy omelet, delicate fish fillets

Non - stick pans are a staple of most kitchens . Some benefits you’ll get with ceramic pans are; they can withstand temperatures hotter than what anybody would ever cook with, and they are non-toxic with no chemical coatings. Enameled cast iron is another excellent nonstick cooking surface.

This genius pan-fried chicken recipe from Food52 may change your life

  This genius pan-fried chicken recipe from Food52 may change your life This genius pan-fried chicken recipe from Food52 may change your lifeFood52 founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs stop by the TODAY kitchen to demonstrate a genius way to cook chicken and show us how to dress it up with different sides and sauces.

Nerdy Stuff In The Kitchen . Healthiest Nonstick Pans . Their Soft Grip 14pc Ceramic Non - Stick Cookware Set is one of their best values. The set includes three different sized pans , two deep saucepans, one large stockpot, lids, and four different kitchen utensils.

Are Nonstick Ceramic Pans Better? (Birds are more sensitive to these fumes than humans and other mammals, and birds kept in cages near kitchens have apparently not done so well when Teflon coated pans have been overheated.)

What are the items you reach for again and again in your kitchen, no matter the meal? Odds are, a skillet is right at the top of your list. And while you might go for your jack-of-all-trades cast iron or your trusty egg-ready nonstick, ceramic will be the true workhorse of your kitchen—if it isn’t already.

Okay, so this may sound like a bit of an infomercial: “It slices! It dices! It practically cleans itself!” (Actually, that last part is true.) But ceramic cookware is pretty darn great. Much like traditional nonstick pans, they’re ideal for cooking a fluffy omelet, delicate fish fillets, or toasting nuts or seeds. The ceramic surface is also a great natural, PFOA- and PTFE-free nonstick alternative. And though it takes a bit longer to heat up, once it’s hot, the surface retains heat longer and disperses heat more evenly. Another bonus? In the case of the Zwilling Carrara Nonstick Ceramic Fry Pan (new and exclusive to our Shop!), it can go from the stove to the oven (up to 300°F), and works with all types of heat: gas, electric, induction, you name it.

Do you know how often you should really change your kitchen sponge?

Is there a life span on Ceramic pans ? Justin Chapple, Food & Wine Deputy Test Kitchen Editor, is back this week with another killer Mad Genius Tip—an ice cream cake made of store-bought ice cream sandwiches, that requires just minutes of prep time. Nonstick Frying Pans .

Ceramic vs Teflon – Choosing The Right Kind Of Nonstick . April 18, 2018June 7, 2016 by Tara Williams. Having pans and skillets scrubbed so violently can instantly take the non - stick ceramic coating off.

Finally, for the aesthetes out there, this beauty of a pan is designed by Italian architect Matteo Thun—isn't the sleek white ceramic coating just lovely?

Zwilling Carrara Nonstick Ceramic Fry Pan

While there are different ceramic cookware options out there, this particular line offers some unique features that help it stand out from the crowd, like a chip-resistant rim, cold-forged aluminum construction (to help it heat more quickly and evenly), and a super easy-to-clean water-based lacquer coating.

If you’re looking to add a pan to your collection, it’s helpful to know how to care for this Zwilling beauty so it will last for years to come. Here, a handy guide:

Zwilling Carrara’s Features

  • They’re made with a nonstick ceramic coating that is PTFE- & PFOA-free, requiring little to no oil for easy searing and frying.
  • The scratch- and abrasion-resistant, heavyweight pan is made with care in Italy.
  • They work on all cooktops, including induction.
  • The stay-cool handle means you can cook safely; just be sure that it doesn’t extend directly over the cooking area as prolonged direct heat can damage it.
  • The rivetless interior makes for easy breezy cleaning (take a look at just how effortless in the short video below!).

Using and Caring for the Zwilling Carrara

  • The cookware can easily go from the stove to the oven (up to 300°F), but should not be used in the microwave (hello, metal!) or the broiler.
  • Don’t leave the pot to boil dry—this can permanently damage the base.
  • Use wood, plastic, or silicone utensils while you’re cooking and avoid metal as it can scratch the ceramic coating.
  • The cookware is wonderfully nonstick, but if you want to add a bit of fat while cooking, it’s best to opt for butter or cooking oil. Nonstick sprays leave a thin layer of oil that can burn at low temperatures and leave a residue that can decrease the nonstick properties.
  • It’s best to use low or medium heat to protect the coating. While the cookware is durable enough to withstand higher temperatures, over time repeated exposure to high heat can wear down the nonstick coating.

Check out the GreenLife 2 Piece Non - Stick Ceramic Fry Pan Set with Soft Grip on Amazon. Great post and very informative. Thanks for sharing about the best nonstick cookware set. now I have an idea which is suitable on my kitchen .

The Vesuvio ceramic coated frying pan is hardly unique as far as non -Teflon nonstick go. Nevertheless, the excellent fitting lid and one year warranty make it a standout choice for your kitchen .

  • While the Carrara cookware is dishwasher safe (if you avoid detergents with bleach or citrus additives), hand washing is recommended.
  • Always let your cookware cool before cleaning it—dousing a hot pan with cold water, for example, can deform the shape.
  • Once the pot is cool, use warm water and dish soap and a sponge or soft bristle brush to gently clean. Avoid steel wool or abrasive cleaners on the inside of the pan—they can easily damage the nonstick coating.
  • If the coating becomes discolored, soak the pan in water and baking soda then give it a light scrub with a soft bristle brush.
  • Finally, it’s best not to stack any other cookware on top of the pot as this can cause chips and scratches.

The One Knife Everyone Needs in the Kitchen .
Did you know a dull knife could be more dangerous than a sharp one? Keeping up with knives is a labor of love, even if you lean towards using just one knife. Most of us use dull knives on a daily basis. I know this because even as a trained chef, I am guilty of this. I also know this because every time I cook in someone else’s kitchen, before I even start cooking I immediately receive an embarrassed-tone apology for the dull selection of knives. I get it, it takes time to pull out the sharpening stone, soak it, and do the theatrical, almost meditative practice that is appropriately sharpening a knife. So sometimes we live off a honing steel, though we know this does not, in fact, sharpen the knife. Don’t get me wrong, a Japanese chef’s knife is a thing of beauty to cook with—when it’s sharp. And you do have to tend to them to keep them that way. But then I came across the Kuhn Rikon Chef’s knife. We have a giraffe-printed one in the test kitchen we always use. It’s been in the kitchen and used by many for about five years and it’s still sharp. I couldn’t believe it when I heard how long it's been around. I still can’t. I use it almost every day for up to eight hours a day and it can still slice nicely through a tomato—the telltale sign of a knife’s sharpness. I’m still not sure how it’s possible a $25 knife can stay this sharp, for this long, but it does. And it saves me a lot of time. RELATED: Knife Skills: Slicing and Dicing Carrot This knife is a great gift for someone that loves to cook or is just starting to get in the kitchen. Or gift it to yourself because you know you sometimes slack on sharpening.
