The 4 Best Nonstick Pans Of 2023

As a cookbook author of the True North Cabin Cookbook, I get asked about my kitchen essentials a lot. I have many pans and some that I still covet. Getting the best nonstick pans can be tricky, depending on your specific needs and preferences. I use my 8-inch for fried eggs and omelets, and my 10-inch for frying my french onion grilled cheese sandwiches.

Below are some of the top nonstick pan options that I like. New pans are always being released so it’s good to do some research on the latest. And don’t forget the silicone tools, because you need these to maximize the care of your nonstick pans so they don’t scratch. The longevity of nonstick pans depends on proper care and usage. Avoid using metal utensils, high heat, and abrasive cleaning methods, as they can damage the nonstick coating. Over time, nonstick coatings can wear out, so be prepared to replace your nonstick cookware when it starts showing signs of wear and tear. 

Here are some pans I suggest. You’ll find an asterisk next to the ones I actually have in my kitchen.
