Teflon-Coated Pots And Pans
Do you use Teflon-coated pots and pans in your home? Did you know that Teflon can be dangerous? The problem with these types of pots and pans comes when the pans begin to chip or flake. These pans are only meant to be used with plastic utensils to avoid chipping the Teflon. If you do chip the Teflon and ingest some of what chips off, it could be harmful to your body. If you have these types of pans in your home, it’s best to get rid of them and switch to copper or stainless-steel pots and pans. There isn’t enough information available on the damaging effects of Teflon on the human body, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you decide to keep them, at least throw them away if they begin to chip or flake.
