If you read Our Stolen Future
, you will understand the dangers of teflon (scratched or not.) There are terrifying studies that show most of us have measurable amounts of teflon in our bodies.
I know the idea of replacing an entire cabinet full of cook ware sounds outrageously expensive, but getting a few essential pieces isn't that hard. How much cook ware do you really use
? I know that for a frying pan/skillet it is hard to find non-teflon without going into higher end stuff, but for things like sauce pans it is pretty easy. Though I do own more than this, I would say 99% of the time I only use my 3 sauce pans, one of my big pots, a stainless steel frying pan and my cast iron frying pan
. That's just 6 that I use on a regular basis.
For bake ware, I mostly have pyrex. It's also is useful for storage and microwaving. It's pretty inexpensive.
