A nonreactive saucepan is one that is made from stainless steel, glass, or ceramic materials. So are those coated with Teflon. They're called nonreactive because these materials in contact with the food don't react with acidic ingredients the way copper and aluminum do. Stainless steel, glass, ceramics and Teflon are highly resistant to chemical attack. And as you might expect, different materials have different advantages and disadvantages.

Thanks for the feedback!
The "nonreactive cookware" is cookware that does not react with acidic foods. Acidic foods such as tomatoes or wine can react with uncoated cookware made of copper, aluminum…, or cast iron. For example, if you put a tomato sauce in an aluminum pot the color of the sauce can change and the sauce will have a slightly metallic taste. When you are cooking with acidic foods you should use pans that are stainless steel, hard anodized aluminum, glass, or that have a coating of tin or enamel. The sale of unlined copper cookware is illegal in many countries, because -- although trace amounts of copper are necessary for good health -- highly acidic foods can dissolve toxic amounts of copper.
a metal that doesn't react with any other substance
Helium is nonreactive because of its full outer shell of electrons and forms no compounds.
Glass,stainless steel, and plastic are non-reactive for mixing. When it comes to cooking, glass and stainless steel are great. Aluminum is very reactive so avoid this wh…en working with tomaoes and any recipe that uses the term "non-reactive".
neon is unreactive because it has a full outer shell of electrons and therefore doesnt need to combine with other elements to gain or have a share in a full outer shell …of electrons. after all the only reason elements combine is to have a share in or gain a full outer shell of electrons
Serology nonreactive means negative for the presence of the analyte being detected in the test system.
No, Teflon can be reactive. As a matter of fact, we have to be careful about non-stick instruments for cooking. At high temperatures cookware coated with Teflon and other non-…stick surfaces can break apart and emits toxic particles and gases. The fumes can sick people, but pet birds are even more sensitive. In cases of "Teflon toxicosis," as the bird poisonings are called, the lungs of exposed birds hemorrhage and fill with blood, leading to suffocation. DuPont studies show that the fumes can also sicken people, a condition called "polymer fume fever." The government has not assessed human health risks or the incidence of polymer fume fever from kitchen exposures to these particles and gases when pans are overheated. Non-stick coatings can contain residues of PFOA (perfluorooctanoate), a chemical used to make Teflon and a breakdown product of stain- and grease-proof coatings on carpet, clothing and food packaging. PFOA is found in the bodies of nearly all Americans. It is a likely human carcinogen; it also has a variety of metabolic developmental, reproductive, endocrine, and neurobiological health effects. Many manufacturers of non-stick cookware have committed to eliminating PFOA residues from non-stick coatings. Available data suggest that non-stick pans are not a major source of PFOA in people's bodies. These exposures are more likely to come from stain- and grease-proof coatings on furniture, clothing, and food packaging. Studies also show that most of the potential health risks from non-stick pans, such as polymer fume fever, come not from PFOA but from other particles and fumes that can come off the pan when it is overheated. While EWG continues to track the changes in manufacturing practices for non-stick cookware, we highly recommend stainless steel and cast iron as great alternatives to non-stick cooking surface. source: http://www.ewg.org/EWGFAQ#
It is a result of its dense atomic structure.
being bad never be bad and next time number one dont put your cake in your face and dont ask such dumb stupid questions
the kettle does not react
Is is lol
A saucepan is a deep sided cooking pot with one long handle that is intended to be used on top of a stove to cook food that requires boiling. They usually come with lids.
Basically non reactive elements are elements that have a full survalence shell meaning that their last shell of neutrons is full., the last shell has 8 electrons or in case of… helium 2. because of their full survalence shell they aren't reactive since they are already stable. Alex A.
a nonreactive gas is a gas that does not react with any other element. you can find these nonreactive gases in the group 0 of the periodic table.
Non-reactive means there is no response when exposed to stimulus or to other materials.
