Ceramic-coated pots and pans
Christmas is a time of plenty, but also a time of deeply seeded confusion. People give gifts that are expensive without thinking to themselves 'Oh, well, I hope this is good stuff! Maybe I should do some research before I purchase...' *sigh*... So I have a reasonably expensive set of new Bialetti Aeternum pots and pans with that fancy schmancy 'nano-ceramic coating'. I immediately went to Amazon.com to look at reviews and while some people were THRILLED, others were devastated. I read that the coating comes off after two weeks of use? Whats this all about? How can I prevent it? Were these people doing something wrong that can easily be avoided? Do YOU have pots and pans with ceramic coating?
