Use tephlon pans or PAM. If you've never heard of pam its a non-stick cooking spray. Like oil but in a spray can that really does work!!

If you are using a non stick pan and the food it sticking then yu have the heat to high.Never put yor cook wear in the diah washer i no it says thatsome of it that i is ok.But it will cause food to stick.Like the other answers said are all the best ways.

If you use a regular/standard pan, preheat it before adding oil. also heat the oil before frying some meat or veggies. If you use a non-sticking pan, that would even be better and easier than the standard pan. At least the food cooked there won't stick. Use also some cooking oil spray if it's available.

Use a non stick spray like Pam or Crisco. You food won't stick to the pan it won't make your food taste any different and your pan will be very easy to clean up afterwords. I love the spary cooking oil!

Hi kenchiprincess If you are not using non-stick utensils, just pre heat it for a fews minutes before starting to cook. Heat it till its hot, then switch the burner off and then pour oil or whatever and switch it on. This kinda helps. Good luck! Happy cooking!

I use both. I have a good alumanin and the teflon skillets. The teflon skillet I just spray a little cooking spray and every thing comes out easy. With the Alumanin I use a little butterand I usually keep the heat on meduim. Sometime when I think I have gotten the alumanin pan clean but I don't things will stick and be very hard to clean. so make sure to keep the heat low even for frying eggs and make sure the pan is clean using a sttel wool when washing it up.

Sounds to me that it is the type of pan that you are using. I used to buy the cheap pans but ended up spending more money on burnt food and throwing the pans away. A couple of extra dollars spent on cookware saves on stress, food and ruined pans.

Use high-quality, heavy cookware, not the cheap flimsy stuff. Cast-iron cookware, when well-seasoned, is almost as good as nonstick. Heavy cookware distributes the heat more evenly and avoids burned spots. Be sure your oil is hot in the pan before putting in the food and that should help with the sticking problem, also.
