A kadhai is one of the most essential utensils in Indian kitchens. It is used for preparing wide range of recipes from soups to fried snacks like puris and pakoras, to curries and gravies. Kadais are usually made from clay, iron or aluminium. However, due to increasing health-consciousness amongst people, many prefer to use a non stick kadhai for cooking because it allows them to prepare dishes with very little or no oil.

These kadhais have a special coating that prevents food from sticking to the surface and makes them easy to clean. They can be used on gas stoves and are dishwasher safe. The best part is that these kadai are PFOA-free, which means they are not harmful for your health. But it is important to keep in mind that the non-stick coating may get damaged over time and should be replaced immediately if it shows signs of damage.

Another major factor to consider while choosing a non-stick kadhai is its capacity. Kadais with a larger capacity can cater to large families and can cook meals for several people at once. They also heat up faster than smaller non-stick kadhai.

Lastly, look for features such as cool-touch handles that are designed to be comfortable and safe for handling. These handles should be covered with heat-resistant material and be able to fit comfortably into the curve of your palm. They should also be compatible with both induction and gas stoves.
