MYTH #16: A nonstick coating on a baking pan does not affect the baking process.

Any baking process should be adjusted when using dark nonstick-coated baking tins. Dark colors absorb heat more quickly than light colors, which tend to reflect heat. So dark nonstick-coated pans absorb the heat generated in an oven more quickly, which, in turn, heats the baking utensil more quickly. Therefore, the baking process is accelerated, and the baking time needs to be reduced.

Professional bakers and dieticians recommend using darker nonstick-coated utensils for many baking recipes to add a browning effect to areas of the baked goods that touch the surface of the utensil. They also recommend a heat reduction of about 25F/15C on the normal recipe temperature to compensate for the faster baking time. But bear in mind that the actual adjustments needed will vary depending on just how dark the coating is.

A further advantage (endorsed by many energy-saving institutes): Due to shorter baking time, darker nonstick-coated products use less energy, reducing energy costs.
