PTFE frying pan? No thanks...
Still voted hot due to the price, but I'd rather no one in my household cooked on a pan that has a PFTE/PFOA coating.
Saucepans are a lesser issue, as they'll likely never reach high enough temps to cause an issue (although accidents can happen), but it's much easier on a frying pan for obvious reasons.

holy smoke bat man!

since i read your post i have google'd the dangers of using pan coated in ptfe/pfoa and i have now thrown away all of my pans just in case, along with all of my diet coke, cos the sweetner will give me cancer according to the internet, and i've also decided to stop going outside as the fumes and harmful uv rays may kill me, assuming I dont get run over or abducted by space aliens, as i know they exist as i read about them on the internet too!

You don't use toothpaste with flouride do you?

If you weren't so ignorant, you'd realise a large number of people suffer from 'Teflon flu' without even realising it. The fact is, if you over heat the pan and breathe in the invisble fumes, it WILL make you ill, no if's or but's about it.
This is the reason Tefal (and other companies) now produce PTFE/PFOA free non-stick pans.

And yes, I use toothpaste with flouride in, I also use hand wash/shower gel that contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate/sodium lauryl ether sulfate, because although certain studies have said it may contain cancer causing toxins, they likelyhood of harm is actually very low.

I'm not saying no one should buy this pan (I even stated I still voted the deal hot), I'm saying I will not buy this pan because while I may be a careful cook and not overheat/burn it, the same cannot be said for my daughter...

so let me get this right if someone isnt ignorant they would be aware of this issue, is this information that you are born with or learnt (nature or nurture)?

And if someone suffers from teflon flu and they dont realise how do they know what it is? Oh and can you define a "large number" as im actually becoming quite interested in this subject.

That's exactly my point... You obviously dismissed my comment as scaremongering (which is why I called you ignorant, you obviously don't care enough to even look into the issue), when in fact you have no idea how many people have been affected by inhaling polymer fumes from overheated Teflon/non-stick pans, as the symptoms are very similar to that of flu and that is what sufferers (and even doctors in some cases) would dismiss it as.

And no, I can't define 'a large number', because it's a very vague and relative term that I just said becasue the truth is, no one actually has a clue how many people have suffered from teflon flu due to the reason stated above .


So, it's a well known and proven fact that overheating a pan that contains PTFE will give off toxic fumes, and breathing in those fumes WILL make you sick. Nothing you say can change that. It's not like your diet coke, fumes outside or UV rays comment (actually, it is a little like the UV rays comment. Overcook yourself in the midday sun without any lotion for a few hours, I'm sure you'll feel great...).

Knowing that, why would you (or anyone) choose to buy such a pan over one that doesn't contain PTFE? To save a few pounds?
Yes, a careful cook is less likely to burn their pan, but anyone can make a mistake/have an accident.

I was ready to jump on here and ridicule the entire idea of teflon flu, mostly because I havent heard of it (and I know more about such things than most) but I have just been reading up on it, and fair play its real and quite common. fair play.

Tefal non-stick products have been PFOA free for years,so please stop your scaremongering!
