Baking can be a rewarding task in the kitchen, particularly when the end product is sampled. There is and always has been a debate as to the best method for keeping food from sticking. There are a multitude of ideas out there and the best one by far is bakeware pans with a non-stick coating.
Many people remember the days of greasing up pans with lard or cooking grease and hoping they did not leave it in the oven too long. This resulted in undercooked food as they were afraid it would burn to the pan and never come clean. Then along came the sprays which, in the beginning, did a good job but were found to alter the taste of some foods as they cooked particularly baked goods.
A pan with a non-stick coating, which has been come to be commonly known as a Teflon coating, was finally introduced to the public. This coating could take the high heat of the oven without flaking, chipping or burning off and cleaned up with little to no effort. The best part was, food did not stick to it and more and more people made these that pan of choice for their homes.
When these were introduced, it was found that there was also no flavor transfer to the food as with some of the sprays. This made it the perfect choice when baking delicate dishes that had subtle flavorings. There was never any odd after taste as was generated by the early spray coatings for baking.
These non-stick cookware & bakeware pans can be found in just about any size and shape imaginable. They are made in baking trays, cake pans, muffin pans and cookie sheets, just to name a few. There is likely not a kitchen anywhere in the world where one or more of these pans will not be found in full time use.
