Do You Like Nonstick Pans?

Nonstick Pans: Love Them or Hate Them?

I grew up in a kitchen full of nonstick pans, but after throwing out two over-the-hill nonstick pieces this week, I've decided I don't like them. Why? They're high-maintenance to clean (they shouldn't be scrubbed with the abrasive side of a sponge), they don't develop the oh-so-sought after fond in sautés, and, unlike cast iron skillets or ceramic ware, they don't last. Even Thomas Keller admitted that the only time he uses nonstick pans is when he's frying an egg. Do you have strong feelings for nonstick cookware?
