Health/Safety PFOA Free
Regulatory agencies worldwide have concluded that PTFE nonstick manufactured without the use of the component called PFOA is not a risk to consumers. All Essteele nonstick is completely PFOA free.
PTFE is short for polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a slippery, tough and non-flammable synthetic material known as the nonstick coating on a pan. PFOA is short for perfluorooctanoic acid, a synthetic chemical compound that, in the past, was used as a component of PTFE.
Our Essteele nonstick coatings are formulated to resist peeling or chipping with normal use. However, in the event that particles of nonstick are accidently eaten, there is no cause for concern. Our nonstick is non-toxic and inert so if they are accidently eaten, the nonstick particles will pass directly through the body and will not be absorbed.
PTFE nonstick coatings have been in the market for over 7 decades with a superb record of consumer safety.
