In this paper we study the initial-boundary value problems for nonlinear parabolic equations without Bernstein-Nagumo condition. Sufficient conditions guaranteeing the nonexistence of gradient blow-up are formulated. In particular, we show that for a wide class of nonlinearities the Lipschitz continuity in the space variable together with the strict monotonicity with respect to the solution guarantee that gradient blow-up cannot occur at the boundary or in the interior of the domain.
