    In the article it states that soy lecithin is the culprit for building
    up that sticky residue on non stick pans, if you us stuff like PAM.

    Disagree with what part?<g>
    1. She should speak to her Rabi about why things went wrong when she
    made latkes without oil--- that's the whole point of latkes. We're
    not Jewish, but I can't imagine why anyone who was would make latkes
    to celebrate a miracle and not use oil. [and I can't imagine why
    anyone would want unfried latkes just because they taste better fried]

    2. The article gave the impression that there were no sprays without
    lecithin- and we've discussed a couple options here in the past week
    or two.

    3.-- she saved herself in the end-- but I was afraid for a while she
    wasn't going to replace the borrowed gift she ruined.

    There is a lot of good advice there, though. starting with the part
    about reading directions.<g>

    It all boils down to no matter how well it's treated, the best
    scenario is that nonstick will have to be replaced every five years
    (or less).

    I don't disagree, I've been seasoning my T-FAL pans for thirty years
    now, that's what the instructions said to do with them. I often reseason
    them annually just to ensure they last. My first T-FAL, every bit of
    thirty years old, had to be tossed two years ago because dear wife used
    a metal spatula in it, scratching the surface. Once the surface is
    scratched the thing is no good.

    Nonsense. My daughter has a non-stick pan I bought almost 20 yrs ago.
    Only the cheap crap needs replacing every 5 yrs.

    Not sure if I agree with rubbing butter/oil onto a cold pan before
    heating. I've never done that and my pans are OK - years later!

    We've decided to do away with nonstick. We have the various cast
    irons and the new stainless steel is really working out, so we're not
    throwing money into the nonstick money pit this time around. I still
    need to find hubby a smaller ss skillet for Xmas. Unfortunately, not
    many brands have a ss inside and an anodized outside.

    yeah, I buy cheap crap because the one and only time I bought
    expensive crap, way back when, it lasted just as long (short) as the
    cheap stuff. IMO, the only way expensive stuff can last is if it's
    not used. Ours is used daily, often twice a day - and I'm over
    replacing it.

    Same here, non stick is history, I have had too many problems with the
    stuff flaking off with the skillets. With one exception.. Will use an
    teflon electric griddle for pancakes. I wonder if electric griddles last
    longer because heat is controlled better?
    But then again doesn't some the teflon always get in the food?

    Has anyone grilled pancakes on a non stick with good results?
    I have a cast iron skillet I use mostly for fried chicken. Will a cast iron
    double grill for the stove work... I love pancakes!

    I purchased an all-clad 10 inch skillet with lid yesterday for $69 U.S. I
    hope this a good deal and will last a life time. A very low price for an
    all-clad. Got the pan at a local Sur-La-Table. Christmas present to my
    self.

    I think I've still got some of the original Silverstone non-stick coating...
    that's gotta be what, 30 years old now? I certainly have never had to
    replace non-stick skillets. But I'm not a huge fan of non-stick. I hate
    having to use special cooking utensils. Don't you dare use a metal spatula
    in that pan! I suppose non-stick is good for pancakes. But I still like my
    grandmother's cast iron griddle for scones. And I can use a metal spatula.

    Not sure what you mean by double grill. I have a two sided "grill"
    that spans two burners. One side is ridged and the other side is
    flat. I've used the flat side for pancakes and it works very well.

    I'll check out Sur La Table, thanks (I'll call to see if they have the
    LTD2). I noticed something last week there that I wanted too.... now
    I have to remember what it was. Did you order online or buy from a
    brick & mortar store?

    Yeah. The only thing that happens is my hard drive dies. Something
    that happens to Mac and Linux users too. Plus I *never* reinstall my
    Operating System the way certain people seem to do with religious
    fervor on a yearly or twice yearly basis.

    Keep on not using it and it'll last 100 years easily.

    WTF are you talking about? I bake scones on it every quarter. It's lasted
    80 years. Grandma Brown's Scottish scones are fantastic. They're not sweet
    scones with currants, they're savory. Quite delicious.

    I still don't know what you're talking about. The cast iron griddle isn't
    non-stick. It's cast iron and has been around 80 years. Grandma's
    scones... yum! And the non-stick pans I own have never needed to be
    replaced every 5 years. Do you actually cook?

    Scones

    2 c. flour, sifted
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1-1/3 c. buttermilk
    1-1/2 tsp. oil or melted fat (she would have used the fat)

    Blend all dry ingredients together. Stir in buttermilk until well mixed,
    then stir in the oil. Roll out onto a floured board to 1/2" thick. Cut
    into triangles, about 3 inches across at the widest point. Bake on a
    greased griddle on high, even heat (about 400 degrees) until golden brown on
    each side. Serve with butter, jam and thick clotted cream.
