MYTH #15: You can use nonstick cooking sprays on nonstick cookware.

First off, you don't need nonstick cooking sprays when using nonstick cookware.

Nonstick coatings were developed to make cooking more healthful by replacing the oils and fats used to keep food from sticking to the metal surface of pans. All you're doing is adding oil to what you eat, something doctors recommend against.

But there's another reason not to use them.

Such sprays burn at a low temperature, and tend to leave a residue on the surface which, if not washed off after each use, can reduce the nonstick effect of the coating. This residue is not harmful, but if it builds up it will alter the performance of the coating, preventing proper release. In fact, many nonstick cookware manufacturers specifically recommend against the use of such sprays.
