    Is the non-stick coating Circulon uses safe?

    The coating is PFOA free, Lead Free and Cadmium Free. Regulatory agencies worldwide have found that PTFE manufactured without the component PFOA presents no risk to consumers and it’s been in the market for over 70 years. Circulon’s Total ® non-stick system uses only technologies to make PTFE non stick without PFOA (perfluoroctanoic acid) making the product completely safe and non-toxic.

    Caring for Circulon Cookware

    Although these pots and pans can withstand tough treatment and can be cleaned in the dishwasher, the non-stick qualities make them very easy and quick to hand wash. Hand washing pots and pans extends the life of non-stick coated cookware.

    We also suggest instead of using metal utensils use wooden, silicone or plastic to maintain optimum non stick qualities and avoid scratches.
