One of the significant disadvantages of non-stick coatings are their poor scratch resistance. Generally, on the Use & Care instructions for all non-stick coated cookware, metal utensils are prohibited and utensils, which use other materials such as wooden, plastic or rubber, are advised to be used with some care and attention. Although in recent years a lot of non-stick coatings have had reinforcing agents added to them, or their thickness through sol-gel technology increased to improve their abrasion resistance, nearly all non-stick coated cookware today is still not labelled as metal utensil safe.
However, with Lotus Rock items, whether they are for cooking, baking or for outdoor grilling, the natural, non-stick coating is metal utensil safe. So whether you want to carve up a turkey or a pizza; quickly stir fry some vegetables; flip over a crepe; turn over a steak or fish; or scrap off the delicious fond on your frying pan, all of this can be accomplished with a metal utensil, without any fear or apprehension of damaging the natural, non-stick surface of a Lotus Rock pan.
