What about PFOA and nonstick cookware?

What little PFOA may have been in the dispersions used to make a coating is decomposed and incinerated by the curing (baking) process through which all nonstick-coated products pass - to the point at which it is virtually undetectable in the toughest migration tests. PFOA is destroyed in one second at 500 F (260 C), and high-quality nonstick coatings are all cured at very high temperatures, usually around 800F/425C for 10 minutes. So the conditions are such that the PFOA is destroyed in the curing process.

In every study of nonstick-coated cookware by every regulatory agency worldwide, conducted under normal cooking conditions, the results have been the same: There is no detectable PFOA.

It has been, is, and will always be safe to use nonstick cookware, bakeware and small appliances as intended.
