2023-08-15 | Blog

Non-stick pans are essential kitchen utensils for many families, they can help us cook delicious food easily, without worrying about food sticking to the pan. But have you ever had this experience, when you use a non-stick pan for a while, you find that the surface of the pan starts to show scratches or peeling? Are you worried that these coatings will be eaten by you and affect your health? Today, we will reveal the truth about non-stick pan coating falling off, tell you whether it is toxic or harmful.

First of all, we need to understand what the coating of non-stick pans is made of. Generally speaking, the coating of non-stick pans is made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or Teflon and other substances. These substances are synthetic polymer materials, with strong heat resistance, corrosion resistance and anti-sticking properties. They are non-toxic and tasteless at room temperature, and even if they are ingested by the human body, they will be excreted and will not accumulate in the body.

So why do non-stick pans have coating falling off? This is mainly due to improper use or poor maintenance of non-stick pans. For example, if you use metal spatulas or other hard objects to scrape non-stick pans, you will damage the integrity of the coating; if you dry-burn non-stick pans at high temperatures, you will cause the coating to deform or peel off; if you use strong detergents or steel wool to clean non-stick pans, you will scratch the surface of the coating.

So what harm will the coating fall off? In fact, from the current scientific research, the coating falling off has little impact on human health. Because the PTFE or Teflon and other substances in the coating are non-toxic and tasteless, even if they are eaten by mistake, they will be excreted by the human body. But this does not mean that we can use the coating falling off non-stick pans with confidence. Because the coating may also contain some other chemical substances, such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and so on. These substances will decompose at high temperatures and produce some toxic gases, such as carbon tetrafluoride (CF4) and so on. These gases if inhaled into the lungs, will cause irritation and damage to the respiratory system.
