Bolton discusses safe use of nonstick frying pans with Buy Side

Buy Side from the Wall Street Journal interviewed Jason Bolton, associate dean of University of Maine Cooperative Extension, about safely using nonstick frying pans. “The coating itself is a solid material; it won’t dissolve. You’re not releasing gas into the air or the food [you’re cooking],” he said. “But avoid using a peeling pan where you’re ingesting the material. Or heating your nonstick pan past the manufacturer’s recommended temperature where some aspects of the coating become unstable.”
