What’s The Price of Nonstick Nirvana?
If you’re using your old stash of Teflon cookware, the answer is somewhere between “Polymer Fume Fever ” and a chemical warfare agent. Yep, that’s right, of the six toxic gases that synthetic non-stick coatings are known to release, some can kill pet birds, while others can become a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB. (source1, source 2) The latter is the case especially with stovetop drip pans.
If you’re thinking you need to ditch your nonstick stash pronto but don’t want to give up your perfect omelettes, don’t worry your pretty little head. When properly seasoned, cast iron skillets work beautifully as an alternative to Teflon. You’ll wonder why you waited so long to make the switch!
Why I Love This Set
It’s made in America, can easily be re-seasoned with non-GMO oils (here’s how), and can go from stovetop to oven to table . . . not to mention the occasional campfire! Oh, and unlike easily chipped Teflon surfaces, cast iron can last several generations.
