Monday (4/9/12) 9:04pm - ... wherein Peter has a question about a skillet.
Odd question today: my landlord/housemate (Kristin) has this Chefmate 10" skillet:
She has vague memories of it being non-stick. But whenever I use it, it behaves like "stick as much as technologically possible". Unfortunately, I might be responsible for this; I do remember running the skillet once through the dishwasher *before* thinking, "Wait, isn't dishwasher-ing nonstick cookware a bad idea?"
My questions are as follows: 1. Could a single run through the dishwasher strip a skillet of its non-stick coating? 2. If so, is there any way to re-non-stick it? 3. If not, what would be an appropriate replacement for this?
Just to make sure because the picture makes it a little hard to tell - that is the one with the flat bottom, and straight up sides right?
I have no vague memories of it being non-stick (that was the... muffin pans?). Well, I mean, I do, but not any expectations that it is now. Bryan and I destroyed that pan by making it our pan that we can cook using oil in. The smaller black surfaced pan, and wok-style stir fry pan in the cupboard below are the non-stick ones.
