Non-stick

A thin, hard wearing coating that is applied to saucepans, frying pans, baking trays, dishes and tins to prevent food from sticking. Non-stick pans are especially useful in low fat cookery as they require little or no extra fat to prevent the base from burning, they are also easy to wash up but care should be take to prevent the non-stick surface being damaged.
