Teflon is bad, bad, bad for you*. But how do you cook an egg? A pancake?
1. A well seasoned and maintained cast iron pan
2. One of the new PTFE- and PFOA-free ceramic pans
I don’t have a cast iron pan (it didn’t survive our many moves), so I rely on ceramic “green” pans. They don’t last forever, so I like to pick them up when they’re on sale. Also, save the ceramic pans for pancakes and eggs! I also follow the “hot pan, cold oil, food won’t stick” mantra when using stainless steel pans. I have 2 Calphalon stainless steel pans that I use for just about everything EXCEPT pancakes and eggs.
There are a few on sale on Amazon (links through the Amazon Smile for Thinking Moms’ Revolution),so I thought I’d give you a heads up in case you want to try it out.
And never use metal utensils on your green pans. I like to use bamboo or silicone.
* Really, really bad for you
