Your pan might be toxic!
The number one thing to avoid is scraping your nonstick pans with other metals, like a metal spatula or utensil. The friction between the two metals will cause scratches and specs from the Teflon coating of the pan to get into your food, and ultimately into your bloodstream. If you have a favorite nonstick pan that you can't bare to replace, just make sure that you always use non-metal utensils on it, but if you are ready for a healthy and safe change, the options are plenty!
There are a plethora on non-toxic, non-stick pans on the market for you to chose from. These pans are typically ceramic, removing any chance of exposure to a chemical Teflon coating. KrushLifestyles dishes are 100% organic and created to lower your body burden. PFAS in your food can do exactly the opposite. We suggest stainless steal pans with a healthy cooking oil as a way to lead a healthier lifestyle!
