cookware that doesn’t scratch

When looking for cookware that doesn’t scratch, go for stainless steel or cast iron. They’re both durable and will last for a long time without showing any form of wear. If you need something with a non-stick surface that’s also easy to clean, opt for a set with a titanium cooking surface. But if you want something that will last for a long time, go with stainless steel or cast iron.

Griddles, Pans and Dutch ovens made of cast iron are the most ideal when looking for cookware that doesn’t scratch. Cast iron griddles and pans are well known for their ability to distribute heat evenly, which is why a lot of people prefer cooking with it. A lot of bakers use cast iron pans and griddles so they will get the perfect even browning on their cakes or bread. It can also be slow-cooked on the stovetop while being seasoned at the same time. When properly maintained, a cast iron pan won’t just be easy to clean; it will also last forever.

The only challenge with cast iron cookware is that it’s considerably heavy and it will likely scratch your glass cooktop. This is why it’s not the best option when looking for non stick cookware that doesn’t scratch.

To maintain your cast iron cookware, all you need is oil or shortening, which will help in preventing the food from sticking on to the pan. It’s also best to avoid using soap and water, as this will only cause more damage and make clean up even more challenging that it already is. Also, avoid cooking with acidic materials like tomatoes and lemon juice as this can affect the seasoning of your pan. Lodge is our preferred brand.

A cast iron pan will outlive you, in fact it will never need to be replaced. If you’re looking to buy a cast iron pan that won’t scratch and can last a long time, i.e. around 40-50 years, then go for an old fashioned heavy skillet that you could find at flea markets. The only problem is that they are usually very heavy and you’ll need to be careful when transferring them from the hot stove to the cooler marble countertops.

On the other hand, a really good stainless steel pan will last for 10+ years in normal usage unless it’s damaged through use or abuse (dropped on floor for instance). So why not go for a basic 10″ Stainless steel pan? It’s affordable, light weight and very easy to clean.
