Non-stick cookware refers to cookware that has a chemical coating so that food doesn’t stick. Teflon is the brand name for DuPont’s non-stick cookware, but many other companies (for example, T-Fal and Silverstone) also make non-stick cookware. The chemical name for Teflon is polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
Non-stick cookware may expose you to 2 potentially harmful chemicals:
- tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), used to create the non-stick coating
- perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), used during the manufacturing process
