Have you ever been confused about the rules about nonstick pans? Can you use them or not? For a long time I’ve tried to avoid using them, but when you are cooking eggs there really isn’t a great alternative. There are a bunch of new “healthy” alternatives to the old Teflon pans many of us grew up with. You want to look for PFOA and PTFE-free pans, which means is doesn’t release the same cancer causing toxins that Teflon releases when scratched.
Below is a collection of well priced green pans that offer the ease of nonstick cooking. Most have either a ceramic coating or a Thermolon coating.
Oh, and if you have an old non-stick pan that is really scratched, get rid of it. Don’t pass it along. It’s one of those items that shouldn’t be passed along to a new home. You can also extend the life of nonstick pans by using silicone cooking tools and a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat.
