In our previous post, we delved into the hidden dangers of traditional nonstick cookware, shedding light on the health and environmental risks associated with chemicals like PFOA and PTFE. At Pantry Magic, we’re committed to the well-being of our PM Family and the planet, which is why we’ve decided to no longer sell nonstick cooking pans. Now, let’s explore some safe and eco-friendly cookware alternatives that can enhance your cooking experience.
- Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel cookware is known for its durability, even heat distribution and resistance to staining. It is great for searing, browning and deglazing. To know a bit more detail about stainless steel cookware, click HERE.
2. Cast Iron. Cast iron cookware is beloved for its ability to retain and evenly distribute heat. With proper seasoning and care, cast iron pans become virtually nonstick naturally. They’re perfect for frying, baking, and even outdoor grilling. To know a bit more detail about Cast Iron cookware, click HERE.
3. Carbon Steel. Carbon steel pans combine the best of cast iron and nonstick pans. They’re naturally nonstick when seasoned and are lighter and more responsive to changes in heat than cast iron. Ideal for searing and stir-frying.
When choosing cookware, keep the following tips in mind:
- Check material composition. Look for cookware made from safe materials, such as stainless steel, cast iron, or carbon steel.
- Avoid PFOA and PTFE. Ensure that the cookware is free from PFOA, PTFE, and other harmful chemicals.
- Proper care. Follow the instructions for care and seasoning to extend the lifespan of your cookware.
- Invest in Quality. High-quality cookware may cost more initially but can last a lifetime when properly maintained.
