The brand of cookware (Analon in your case) is much less significant than the material the cookware is made from. If the cookware is SS - then SS tools shouldn't be a problem. If it is their hard anodized line ... only minimal "damage" will occur over time but it certainly will not render it "useless" (my HA cookware is 20-years old and it's still fine although I have worn off most of the dye in the bottom of the pots/pans). IMHO - only a fool would use metal utensils in nonstick cookware - no matter what the mfg/infomercial pitchmen claim.
