I purchased 2 brand new stainless steel fry pans as I was worried about the teflon we were eating off our old non stick fry pan (teflon coating was coming off).

But whenever I cook anything that has flavouring (marinade, powdered spices etc) it sticks to the fry pan and all the food just ends up tasting burnt, and it's a bugger to clean!!

What am I doing wrong??  I spray the food with cooking spray, and I've tried using copious amounts of oil to no avail!

I'm ready to go and buy a new non stick one again, but I am concerned about the teflon, are there non stick fry pans that are not teflon coated?

TIA!

I've got several scanpans and quite like them.
They are ceramic titanium.
Also have a Le Crueset Grill pan and love it, but it is cast iron.

IME, for good frying I oil the meat with a high temp oil, never oil the pan, and make sure the frypan is at the required (highish) heat before adding meat.
And I never use a cooking oil spray.
I read that it has adhesive like properties and the residue can accumulate and hasten pan's death - don't know if that is true or not, just sorta stuck.

I've never had my coatings come off, I have scan pans, stanly Roger pots, some cast iron thing that I hardly use as it is too heavy and a few tefal pans which are the inky ones that every go into the dishwasher. I don't use spray on any of the pans and I use oil that has a high burn temp ie not olive oil as it won't stick to the pans (having said that I don't use oil much in most pans just with certain foods and never on my scanpans or Stanley Rogers ones)

I have just thrown out whilst we were camping a pan like you described.

They are awesome. Easy to clean and two years on still look like new.

circulon commercial non-stick pans are good.  Ours are 7+ years old and still going strong.  But it pays to follow the instructions for care and use.

I bought an Arcosteel set a few years ago and it's fantastic. I don't think it's teflon coated, although it is non stick. This is the set I bought -

The cooking spray is probably most of the problem. Give them a bl**dy good scrub to get that off, and then start using rice bran oil or similar. You should have a much better time of things, regardless of brand.

I've got a green pan (http://www.green-pan.com/) which seems good, I'm a bit sus about teflon and related surfaces.  I don't use it much though and prefer cast iron or stainless steel.  TBH I don't have much trouble with sticking even in a stainless steel pan though, as long as the pan is hot (but not too hot) and the oil also, everything always seems to slide around.  I prefer rice bran oil or butter for frying.

If you want to spray, get an oil pump spray bottle (available at most kitchen stores) and spray normal cooking oil on instead.

As far as non stick goes, I love my Aldi (Crofton) pan, but it is fairly new and only used for pancakes.

For every day, I use my well seasoned cast iron pan. It's 10 years old and more non stick than the day it was bought. Yeah, it's heavy, but it's worth it.
