Nonstick Cooking Utensils

    Nylon Utensils

    • Nylon utensils look like hard plastic but have a much higher heat tolerance. Large serving spoons, ladles and spatulas of all sizes are available in nylon.

    Wooden Varieties

    • Wooden spoons will not harm nonstick pans but wooden spatulas are difficult to maneuver due to their thickness. Choose wooden utensils made of hard woods, as soft wood tends to scorch and splinter over time.

    Rubber & Silicone Utensils

    • Rubber and silicone utensils come in many styles. Some are treated to hold up in very high temperatures, which are indicated on the packaging. Silicone spatulas and turners are thin enough to easily flip and rearrange delicate foods.


    • Carefully check heat tolerances on rubber spatulas as many varieties are strictly for mixing cold or room temperature foods and may melt or disintegrate when exposed to heat. Never use metal knives or forks on foods in nonstick cookware as they may scratch the interior coating or finish.
