I’ve been looking for new frying pans and really want something eco and with the least toxic coating. It also needs to be suitable for an induction hob.
To be honest I’m just getting myself more confused. Does anybody have any recommendations pls?

A solution is hideously expensive but everlasting la crueset. Iron, so all l can manage (having wrist damage)is their omelette pan. I use it for everything which isn't steamed. At times l have managed to get the patina which chefs speak of, making the surface as nonstick as a teflon pan, (which l wouldn't use.) Currently, it doesn't have the patina therefore needs stronger rubbing after cooking eggs.

That's why im looking for information on non stick panscrubs . I dont want anything with sponge. Any ideas please?

P.s. the iron pan loves induction, but works with all hobs.

A traditional cast iron one. Season it well and it will be wonderfully non stick so long as it never sees soap.

Mine was about £4 but you can pay much more, especially if you want a modern non stick coating.

Once seasoned never scrub or soap, a quick wipe out with a single sheet of kitchen towel or a dry washing up cloth will do.

I have had 2 cast iron frying pans (no coating) since before uni. Still great for most things and will never wear out.
Plus cast iron takes less energy to make than steel.
