Summary

So remember:

Thanks to advancements in today's technology, nonstick coatings have excellent resistance to abrasion and wear and maintain their "nonstick" properties longer than coatings from just a few years ago. Do not throw away a nonstick pan if the nonstick coating has been scratched or marred. You will not get sick if you accidentally eat a piece of nonstick coating. If a nonstick coating has a rough surface, it will work the same as any other coated pan and usually means it is externally reinforced. While black is the best option, nonstick coatings used on the interior of a pan can be made in other colors. There aren't any test methods that can predict how long a nonstick coating will last. All nonstick coatings are not the same. The weight of a pan can affect the life of the nonstick coating. Nonstick cookware, bakeware and all other nonstick-coated housewares do not contain PFOA.
