ISO non-toxic and non-stick pans in GTA
With the growing number of articles telling us that teflon isn't safe, I've been thinking about throwing out my non-stick pan. I know...cast iron is the best replacement...but I've also heard that "ceramic coated" cookware is a good replacement for teflon. Any leads on brands and stores where I could find this type of cookware in the GTA would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I just bought a little ceramic coated nonstick pan from Zellers. It was $9.99 for a 7" frying pan - they had some larger pans too, but I don't remember the prices. So far, I'm delighted with it, and if it doesn't hold up, I didn't exactly blow a lot of cash on it. It stands up to higher temperatures than Teflon, is harder to scratch, and can go into the oven. It's a nice alternative for those things that I don't like to do in my cast iron.
I've seen commercials for a non-stick line by Starfrit called Quicklean that are nickle/chrome coated. I've tried to find info on them but haven't found much.
I would assume they aren't a high end product especially because they are carried by WalMart. I would be interested in seeing them in person though.
