Dangerous Cookware Exposed: Teflon, Nonstick, Pyrex, Ceramic – Which Is The Safest?

shattered-pyrex-cookwareDid you know that Teflon and other nonstick cookware are perfectly safe until you apply heat to them?

That’s right, as long as you don’t use your cookware to actually cook you won’t experience any off-gassing of toxic fumes.

Makes you wonder why they even make it, right?


Did you know that glass cookware such as Pyrex can explode and shatter

When it ages and collects scratches and nicks, upon being removed from a hot environment to a cold one (such as an oven to a counter top) the change in temperature is enough for it to shatter with surprising force.

I guess that means Pyrex is best when used for food storage.


So what kind of cookware is actually SAFE to use?

Ceramic cookware is the way to go.

There’s no off-gassing of dangerous chemicals, and ceramic can go from a 2000-degree furnace into ice water with no problem.

I guess it’s time to go shopping for new cookware!

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 40 yrs -- including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking at home, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller, you've got a good idea of who I am.
