The state-of-the-art non stick coating allows for oil-free cooking and effortless clean up.
These days, buying the healthiest cookware is an afterthought. With the cookware market saturated with new gimmicky cookware, healthy cookware takes a back seat. To make things worse, manufacturers and distributors are not even open about labeling their cookware as toxic.
In 1954, the first Teflon-coated, non-stick frying pan was created and has gained popularity until recent studies have indicated serious non-stick frying pan health risks. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic solid compound composed of carbon and fluorine. It was discovered in 1938 and was then branded as Teflon to be used to coat pipes due to its lubricating, non-stick and non-reactive property.
You may or may not have a non-stick pan at home. If you do, you may be wondering about non-stick pan health risks. Before you cook next time on your non-stick pan, you should look into the safety, and risks that are associated with your pan.
