Summary

Key points to remind your customers:

PTFE is a fluoropolymer, which is the ingredient in nonstick coatings that makes them "nonstick". PFOA is an ingredient used in the manufacture of fluoropolymers, such as PTFE. PFOA is not the same as PTFE. The small amounts of PFOA used in the manufacturing process are destroyed in the curing process of the nonstick coating. All studies of nonstick coatings for housewares conducted under normal cooking conditions to date have had the same results: there is no detectable PFOA. Both fluoropolymers and nonstick coatings are here to stay, and provide numerous benefits to hundreds of industries. Nonstick coatings on housewares allow for more healthful cooking and easier cleanup.

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