Frequently Asked Questions about cookware and roastware with a non-stick coating

FAQ of 1 November 2005

Cookware with a non-stick coating: no sticking, easy to clean, low fat preparation. However, the coating does scratch easily. Food in coated pans and pots should, therefore, only be stirred with wooden or plastic spoons/spatulas. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is frequently used as the coating material - known under the trademark Teflon. A non-stick PTFE finish to cookware and roastware can pose a health threat if the coating is overheated. Then PTFE generates toxic fumes. When used properly, this risk does not occur. BfR has compiled and answered below the most frequently asked questions about cookware and roastware with a non-stick coating.
