There is a reason why professional chefs cook exclusively with stainless steel.

Are stainless steel pans non-stick?

Well yes, they are, if you use and season it right. The right temperature is the name of the game. A professional chef will tell you to never use your stainless-steel pan without preheating it first. Once your pan is hot enough only then add oil and then start cooking.
