Here's a personal question: when was the last time you checked the state of your nonstick cookware? (No judgment whatsoever.) While nonstick coatings make cooking and cleaning a breeze, most of them need to be replaced after a while. If your nonstick pans are warped, discolored, scratched, flaking, or more than five years old, sorry — it's time for them to be replaced.

But this is one of those "sorry, not sorry" situations, because today's nonstick cookware is leaps and bounds ahead of the old stuff. Not only are these new products safer to cook with than pans from a decade ago, they also look stylish enough to show off. Also, you might be surprised to learn that "nonstick" doesn't always mean what you think it does — sometimes, it's just a matter of "teaching" materials like iron and steel to be nonstick.

Ahead, discover some nonstick essentials that will renew your love for cooking, look cute in the kitchen, and get you excited to try new recipes. You might even say we're stuck on them. (Sorry about the pun, still not sorry about the pans.)
