nonstick coastings

I did a lot of research before buying my current nonstick pans, and a lot of high-end cookware manufacturers use titanium-ceramic mixes for their nonstick coatings. Although I don't have a complete set of cookware that's nonstick, I love my frypans, which are by a company called Fissler. They use their own titanium-ceramic mix which is quite durable, and it was rated highest in Germany in a comparison test of high-end European cookware, plus they're still made in Germany (high-quality manufacturing). I ended up choosing my pan, called Fissler Alux, because of the test rating and a friend's recommendation after using his pans for years with very little wear. I bought mine in a specialty shop, but I just noticed that they're on amazon now. You might check out the company's website, it's Fissler USA. I would certainly check ratings of the cookware that you're considering, tests are a useful tool!

Well I've had my pots and pans for a while. I avoid teflon coated stuff and am a fan of stainless steel. The Fissler products look simply amazing. I'm in no shortage of pots and pans (have too many probably) but wanted to try something new. The Fissler products do look nice but am not sure.

I have a Sanyo rice cooker...one of those fuzzy logic things that cooks five kinds of rice ten kinds of ways, and it also doubles as a (small, 5c) slow cooker. The cooking vessels (came with two, one for rice and one for slow cooking), have that anodized titanium coating, so I suppose the food never actually comes into contact with the aluminum. The rice pot also has a more traditional non-stick coating on the insisde. If the anodized titanium coating was all that and a bag of chips, I don't think Sanyo would be spending money on an additional coat of teflon. I still use a bit of coconut oil in the rice cooker, which makes everything totally non-stick, healthy and tasty. I'm still using All-Clad saucepans and carbon steel or cast iron for all other things stovetop, with the exception of an old stainless steel pressure cooker on occasion. If I believe the manufacturers, everything I have in my kitchen was a miracle in its' day, and probably still should be, but they just look like pots and pans to me. Oh, and just a thought...titanium cookware probably ain't so hot on an induction cooktop.
