After conducting research by preparing delicate omelets and crepes, a team from The New York Times recently compiled a list of the best nonstick pans based on their cooking experience.
Pans protected with PPG ETERNA® and PPG ECLIPSE® nonstick coatings dominated the competition and were named the top three best in class.
The first-place winner was the Tramontina 10-Inch Professional Restaurant Fry Pan. This pan uses PPG Eclipse nonstick coatings which are engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of today's gourmet and commercial kitchens, providing exceptional abrasion resistance and release.
The runner-up was the Nordic Ware Restaurant Cookware 10.5-Inch Nonstick Fry Pan, which also uses PPG Eclipse nonstick coatings.
The winner for induction-friendly pans went to Ozeri 10-inch Stainless Steel Pan with Nonstick Coating which features PPG's Eterna nonstick coating. Eterna was uniquely formulated to create significant improvements in release, much needed for cooking food like eggs.
PPG Eclipse and PPG Eterna coatings are both specifically formulated without Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA).
