All about Nonstick Cookware set you should know

If you are looking for Non-stick pots and pans then you need to know more about Teflon, T-fal and many other brands. Non-stick pans depend mainly on the coating material Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) imposed on the cookware surfaces to prevent sticking of food. PTFE such magical word your dishwasher, your hands, and your kitchen will like!

Nonstick cookware sets are dishwasher friendly at low temperatures. PTFE is usually non-reactive as long as you cook at mid to low temperatures. What’s with temperature then? It’s simple. PTFE coating is health and environment friendly as long as you keep the temperature below 660 F. What if…? Don’t take the risk. It is not good for your family. In brief it loses all its glamour. Yes, at high temperatures the coating will melt and break and you won’t like the new look

Moreover and most important, PTFE will become reactive. Not good! At high temperatures PTFE will give out some PFOA which is lethal. Don’t ever forget our pan in the oven or use it for high temperatures food. PFOA is thought to be responsible of PFOA flu, cancers, and pregnant women issues. That’s serious. As a rule of thumb, if PFOA can harm women it can harm anything. Kidding but PFOA fumes can be lentil for birds. So we are facing real health and environmental issues.

Just be sure you have your gloves on and enjoy moving you pan from stove top and into the oven whenever it needs.
