    I can't remember what I cooked but it stuck. I rubbed the stuck food
    with a sponge and the non stick surface came off with the food.
    The skillet was new! I have continued to use it until today. I put some
    cold sausage links in at 325, when I moved them you could see that
    the non stick stuck to the sausage. I had to dumb the whole batch!
    I don't want a replacement skillet, I'm sure they'll all do the same thing.

    I had the same problem. I love the Rival Electric Skillet however almost from the first use I had what started out as a small bubble on the nonstick coating. It gradually got worse and worse until everything started to stick and I threw the skillet out. I was looking for a replacement skillet as the electric frying pan was less than 1 year old. Everything else is like brand new. I thought it was just a defect in my I wonder if it is a design flaw. Any one else with the same problem?

it is probably not a non-stick surface
having said that the cooking oil you use has a lot to do with sticking to the pan
If the instructions are correct you do not use spray oil, cooking oil or anything on a non-stick surface as It ultimately removes the non-stick quality of the teflon surface
If you must use some additive then rice oil is the best as it is supposed not to affect the surface of the pan and is better for you than cholesterol containing oils

I have had this pan for about 1 1/2 yr. , being retired I only use it once every 2 months or less. i know less than 10 times. It has alwys heated extremly hot ( only use 250degress or less) . Last time I...

I really don't think there is much you can do. You could ask a kitchen utensil distributor if they have a contact to have the pan re-coated for you, otherwise remove the rest of the coating and use it as a conventional pan.

Using a Farberware 12 pan coating comming off

non stick coating are volatile and have a short life span depending on the frequency of cooking and washing which wears it out if you are a keen amateur cook/chef my advice is go for HARD ANODISED which is russian space technology in your kitchen or classic copper pots/pans but they are costly,
to help preserve your non stick 1. do not wash straight after let it cool down, 2. always use plastic or wood utensils.3. be gentle,
hope it helps.

Cannot get lid off of fry pay.

Dear Sir:
Thank you for writing back about my stuck fry pan. Guess what, I did it. First, I put it in the freezer and by physics of course steel contracts. So I waited about 1 and half hour and then I took it out and w/a steel spatula I pried it open. I guess it was overly pressurised. I was a happy camper. Love my Presto Pride pans I have had them since I was in the Marine Corps back in the 60's. Went to a demonstration in someone's home. Paid a pretty penny for it then but look how long it lasted. Thank you again for listening to me. Sincerely, Lorraine J.

Non stick

Hey there,

Do not use your silverware with non stick surfaces, as it might very easily destroy them. Nowadays you can find about every kind of silverware made from silicone, which is safe for your non stick.

Have fun cooking!

Non-stick surface coming off

I find that in viewing this site that the listed " solution" is not a solution at all! This skillet has a defective design and coating and should be recalled!
