Ceramic pans have been around for some time, but it’s only in the last few years that the big brands have capitalised on their potential. Ceramic pans are used as an alternative to non-stick coating, and are making a big impact in professional kitchens.
The main reason for their popularity is that they are non-reactive, which means you can safely cook any kind of ingredients and it will never leach any chemicals or anything else dangerous into the food. Ceramic is also known to transfer heat more efficiently than some other materials. Ceramic pans are usually made with an aluminium base, so the heat quickly moves to the ceramic surface. This means you need less time and power to cook food, which is perfect for a professional kitchen where turnover is high.
The non-stick nature of ceramic means you can use less oil or butter when cooking, which helps to keep food healthier, although there’s nothing stopping you using as much as you like. Ceramic pans are also relatively lightweight and easy to clean, which is great news in a kitchen where service happens thick and fast.
