DealDash Cooks: Avoid Nonstick Cookware Mistakes


Nonstick cookware is easy to use and makes things easier. However, it’s still possible to make mistakes when using it. Read on for more information from DealDash.

If you are using your nonstick cookware properly it will last a good deal longer than if you were to not be doing all that you can to keep them in great shape. Here are a few mistakes to avoid when using nonstick cookware. Read this article to get some great tips from DealDash.

Don’t Use Nonstick Spray

Using nonstick cooking spray is a big mistake when it comes to using nonstick cookware. Why is this a problem, you might be wondering? Well if you use nonstick cooking spray on nonstick cookware there will be a sticky film that develops that will not come off at all. You will have to scrub it off, which is not good for your nonstick cookware.

Don’t Scrub too Hard

You should also avoid using abrasive items on your nonstick cookware. This means that you should avoid things like knives and metal spatulas. They can end up scratching the coating off of your nonstick cookware making it not be as useful to use. It is best to use rubber utensils when it comes to nonstick cookware. You should also not use any extremely abrasive sponges or scouring pads, either.

Don’t Wash in the Dishwasher, Please!

Washing your nonstick cookware in a dishwasher is another mistake that you need to avoid. While many pieces of nonstick cookware say they are dishwasher safe you will find that after a while harsh detergents can wear away at the coating of your cookware. The high temperatures of the water will not be good for the cookware either. You should wash all of your nonstick pots and pans by hand.

Not too Hot!

Cooking over too much heat is not a good thing to do if you are working with nonstick cookware. The higher the heat the more the opportunity to wear away at the coating of your cookware. And after you reach a certain level of heat your cookware can start releasing toxic emissions.

Hot Deals Cooking On DealDash

I think DealDash is all about opportunity. An opportunity to get some great deals, an opportunity to shop at all hours, an opportunity to save gas by shopping on your computer at home, and an opportunity for second chances.

In the past, I have unsuccessfully bid on cookware. I lost those auctions for various reasons, and believing that everything happens for a reason, after I got over the loss, I decided to try one more time. This time I was successful.

I won this $143.00 T-Fal 18-piece Nonstick Inside and Out Cookware Set. There were 22 other bidders participating and I was certain that I was going to be lucky if I could manage to get this for around $50.00. I was thrilled when I won it by using just 22 bids and it only cost me 98 cents!

We use this cookware daily and I love the fact that is nonstick both inside and out, has hooks on the handles so I can hang it up and it looks pretty in the kitchen when it is not in use.

One of my favorite recipes is spaghetti with my homemade meat sauce. When you get your own pans, you may want to try it.


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 pkg. sweet Italian Sausage links
  • 2 pkg. hot Italian Sausage links
  • 2 pkg. McCormick Spaghetti Sauce mix
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 large green peppers,
  • 2 lbs mushrooms, cut in half
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, sliced thinly
  • 2 large cans whole tomatoes, crushed
  • 2 large cans tomato paste
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups hearty burgundy wine
  • 2 + tbsp each – dried or fresh Parsley, basil, Italian seasoning, oregano and 4 large bay leaves

Brown the ground beef and drain off the fat. Boil the sausages and drain off the fat. Combine all ingredients in largest pot available and let simmer for 2 – 4 hours, adding additional water or wine if needed, until the sauce is thick enough to your liking.
