The Case for Nonstick Cookware: Why PTFE Isn't The Enemy

The Case for Nonstick Cookware: Why PTFE Isn't The Enemy

Let's be honest—nonstick cookware gets a terrible rap. We've heard it all, from scratchy sagas to plasticized palates, But how much of it holds truth? Let's go back to the basics and understand the most vital component in any nonstick product: Polytetrafluoroethlyene (or PTFE, for short.)

After scientist Roy J. Plunkett's accidental success in the discovery of PTFE, it's come a long way since then. He termed it as the slipperiest substance and for good reason: PTFE possesses properties that make it heat-resistant, water-resistant, and rust-resistant with the least friction and highest thermal conductivity up to 250° C.

Here's why this matters: Your food can be fried, sauteed, slow-cooked, grilled, stir-fried, or baked with absolute peace of mind. You'll no longer spend hours scrubbing your pots and pans. Or wiping them down to prevent rust. But the best part? Healthy, safe and delicious meals the whole family can enjoy, thanks to UTNSL's range of everyday all-purpose nonstick cookware!

Happy Cooking!
