Non-stick pans are great for cooking a quick meal, but the non-stick coating can scratch and wear off over time. If your food isn't sliding off the pan like it once did, a little seasoning can prolong the cookware's life.

The process isn't really different from seasoning a cast iron pan, I just had no idea it worked on non-stick pans. Once you're done cleaning the pan, heat it up briefly on the stove, apply a thin coat of oil for a few moments and wipe up the excess with a paper towel. Doing this consistently should allow the oil should fill in the scratches and thin points of the coating to keep your cookware in peak condition.
