PFOA was used for decades to make DuPont's Teflon coating, a nonstick surface for frying pans and other applications, and in 3Ms Scotchgard carpet protectant. Under EPA pressure, the companies agreed to phase out the chemicals beginning in 2000.

In February, DuPont and its spin-off Chemours agreed to pay $671 million to settle more than 3,500 lawsuits involving the leaks of PFOA from its plant in Parkersburg, West Virginia, into community water supplies.

What's the best type of cookware to use if you want it to be at least somewhat non-stick? Or is that a No Go?

What should we be buying then, instead?

Recommendations?

 Quoting: CitizenPerth


Roy J. Plunkett (June 26, 1910 – May 12, 1994) was an American chemist. He discovered polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), i.e. Teflon, in 1938.

He was the chief chemist involved in the production of tetraethyllead, a gasoline additive, at DuPont's Chambers Works from 1939 to 1952. After that he directed Freon production at DuPont before retiring in 1975.

Plunkett received the John Scott Medal from the city of Philadelphia in 1951, for an invention promoting the "comfort, welfare, and happiness of human kind". Attendees were given a Teflon-coated muffin tin to take home.

Other awards and honors followed. Plunkett was inducted to the Plastics Hall of Fame in 1973 and the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1985.

Plunkett died of cancer on May 12, 1994 at his Texas home at the age of 83.

An interesting note to the cookware, there's also a thing called t e f l o n flu, it happens when you overheat your frying pan. I've read it will kill birds if you have any as pets, and of course will make you sick as hell.

More than likely safe:

Cast Iron - (But you can get too much iron from it). It heats evenly and lasts forever

Copper - It heats evenly but is EXPENSIVE

Stainless Steel - Not for amateurs and takes more work.

Aluminum - See Stainless Steel

Ceramic - People swear by it, but we don't know long term.

From California to Flint, Michigan and New Jersey, harmful toxic chemicals linked to cancer can be found in water supplies of multiple US states and in the tap water of 15 million people, according to a new study.
The perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in question come from everyday products including cookware, outdoor clothing, food packaging and firefighting foam, and were detected in record high levels in the water supply in 27 states.

"It's a much larger number than we thought before," said Bill Walker, managing editor of Environmental Working Group who joined with Northeastern University in Boston to conduct the research.

The team's findings came from analysis of federal drinking water data and publicly documented legal cases of toxin pollution and documented in an interactive map.....

I have a single non-stick pan that we got as a gift. We've had it almost 6 years now and the coating is immaculate because I only use it for low-temp things like sauteing spinach or eggs. If you keep the surface temp down (NO BROWNING MEATS) non-stick CAN be safe.

I use cast iron almost all the time. You just don't have to think about it. I'm not sure how I believe the iron issue because if there's bare iron facing your food, you've got a rusty pan. It should be seasoned....and you don't have to be all crazy about it either.

Re: Cookware, packing toxins polluting drinking water in 27 US states – report
To make the so-called ceramic coatings, a metal pot is dipped into or sprayed with a plastic (chemically based polymer) solution. As these synthetic, plastic-like coatings are softer than metal, the surface degrades with normal use. The life expectancy of a nonstick ceramic-coated pot is about one year. Once the synthetic coating wears thin, pits or scratches, toxic metals from the underlying metal can leach into foodstuffs. And the coating itself may contain toxic metals like arsenic.

Do NOT use non-stick ceramic cookware; it’s potentially toxic. However, superior 100% ceramic cookware is non reactive; it is not advertised as “non-stick” because foods will stick unless you add oil or water. 100% ceramic withstands erosion and temperatures exceeding 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
