Facts about Fats
#FAQ - Do I need to use oil or butter for cooking or frying in my non-stick pan?
Yes, even in a non-stick frypan, we do recommend using a little bit of oil or butter. The fat is used to transfer the heat from the pan to the food. Using a bit of oil or butter also makes your food tastes better! We listed some quick tips here for using fats in your non-stick frypan:
- Use oils and fats that have a high smoke point, like refined olive oil, peanut oil, corn oil and (clarified) butter.
- Do not use extra virgin olive oil or oil sprays. They heat up very rapidly and are more easily carbonized on the non-stick surface. This will affect the non-stick performance of the pan.
- Because the Thermolon™ coating in your GreenPan transfers heat more efficiently than traditional non-stick frypans, food and oil can carbonize very rapidly. So always cook on low to medium heat and use only short high heat for searing or browning.
So don't go "no fat", but use it sparingly
