This is how to make stainless steel non stick! You can cook ANYTHING in a stainless steel pan such as pancakes, eggs, mushrooms, meat, and it won’t stick if you’re preheating the pan properly. The trick is to achieve something called the Leidenfrost effect which allows water to glide like a bead once the pan is hot enough letting you know it’s ready to be used. Everyone’s heating time will be different depending on the stove so be sure to test a few different times out.
How To Make Stainless Steel Non Stick
- stainless steel pan
- I preheat my pan for 3 minutes on medium-high heat. I drop a touch of water to see if it’s ready. If the water turns into a bead and GLIDES, you can wipe it off and it’s ready to cook on.
- Make sure you have all of your ingredients ready and prepped already so you can start cooking right away.
- If the water EVAPORATES, it means the pan is not hot enough. You can wipe the water and wait a little and try again.
- If the water separates into hundreds of tiny water pellets it means it’s way too hot and you can take it off the heat to bring it down to temperature and try again!
- You may have to try a few different timings until you get it perfect depending on your stove. If you find this tip helpful please save, share, and comment.
