Cookware with nonstick surfaces are quite popular, and they can make cooking and cleaning up more convenient. With technology that stops food from sticking to your pots and pans, you will be able to avoid messy cooking situations and find cleaning up to be much easier.

One nonstick surface that you can find on various pieces of cookware is Silverstone. Silverstone was created by DuPont as a plastic coating much like Teflon, and this nonstick surface helps prevent the food you are cooking from sticking. What makes Silverstone different from Teflon is that it is smoother and will not scratch, chip, or peel quite as easily.

Silverstone nonstick cookware has three layers on its surface: a topcoat, a mid-coat, and a primer. The topcoat is what allows the food to be easily released from the surface and prevents it from sticking. The mid-coat helps to prevent scratching, offering the pot or pan more protection, while the primer layer adds durability to the cookware.

There are numerous types of cookware available with a Silverstone nonstick coating. You can find a wide variety of pots, pans, skillets, and more for whatever cooking needs you may have. In order to get the most out of your Silverstone cookware, there are a few things to remember:

  • Utensils. Generally it is safe to use metal utensils when cooking with Silverstone cookware. To be sure your cookware lasts as long as possible it is best to only use tools that have been made with wood, plastic, or another similar material.
  • No cutting. Be careful not to cut on the surface of the cookware. Using a knife to cut food while it is still on a Silverstone surface might cause scratching. If a small scratch does occur, however, the performance of the coating should not be affected.
  • Heat. A Silverstone nonstick cookware piece can generally handle very high temperatures. While it is safe to cook at a temperature up to 500 degrees, DuPont does recommend that cooking on low to medium heat is best.
  • Less oil. Because it has a nonstick surface, Silverstone cookware does not require any oil or butter to grease the surface. Unless added flavor from greasing the surface is desired, it is not needed. The food should easily slide from the surface of the cookware you are using.
  • Dish washer. Most Silverstone cookware is safe to go in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

If you prefer cooking with a nonstick surface, then Silverstone cookware is a wonderful way to cook great meals with ease.
