I've had my T-Fal teflon fry pan for a year and a half, and have used it every morning. I treated it well, but since they said it was dishwasher-safe I did put it in the dishwasher from time to time. Now it's worn out.

Some non-stick teflon pans say they are dishwasher-safe, others don't. Is this a difference in the coating, or just a difference in the marketing? Should I always keep my teflon-coated pans out of the dishwasher?

  • I think this is a duplicate so I'll look for the previous question. But I always put mine in the dishwasher. Eventually they fail starting at a scratch, so the main thing is not to scratch them in the first place

Never bothered sticking them in a dishwasher as they are easy to clean in the sink. 2 rules I abide by in regards to them. Never use metal utensils with them. Silicone or wood only. Never overheat them. Stovetop only. Medium heat at most.
