Are these teflon coated?
I got these a few months ago at the higher price, and I’m chiming in to say that I love them. After a couple weeks, I ended up tossing out all my old teflon-coated aluminum Tfal pots and using these exclusively. They’re heavy, conduct heat evenly, clean up easily and the frying pans aren’t prone to warping like cheaper pans. There’s a nice variety of sizes and the clear lids – well, why don’t all pots have clear lids? These pans are great.
If there’s one caveat, it’s a small matter of storage – the lids have long rectangular knobs rather than round knobs, so they may not fit easily into your existing lid holder. If you use such a thing and don’t just store the lids on the pots or chuck them into the cabinet willy-nilly. (I ended up buying a better-shaped pot-lid organizer on Amazon – now whenever I open the cabinet where we store pots, I can pretend I’m a really organized person).
Totally agree, we have boughten lots of cookware through the years.This is by far the best I have ever had love it
Anyone know if these are PFC/PFOA/PTFE free or whatever is relevant?
Yeah, pls advise. We don’t want anything cheap but poisonous.
I called Cuisinart and the person I spoke with pulled up the information and said there was no mention of PFOA/PFTE free. At best it’s a risk if you are concerned about those things!
I’ll wait for another set that is branded PFOA-PFTE free.
If you would be so kind? I don’t know what PFOA-PFTE is.
If these pans are Teflon coated, they are not PFTE/PFOA free.
From the url: Six Alternatives to Traditional Non-stick Cookware - More
"When describing or categorizing cookware, the phrase “non-stick” refers to a solid coating made of a fluorocarbon called polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), commonly known as Teflon. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, is a chemical commonly used to make PTFE in non-stick cookware, usually when adhering the PTFE to a hard metal base like aluminum.
While PTFE is stable and non-toxic in its solid form, it begins to deteriorate after the temperature of the cookware reaches about 500° F. These degradation by-products may include PFOA, which the Environmental Protection Agency has identified as a likely carcinogen. It has been found to be lethal in birds and can cause flu-like symptoms in humans."

Note: the second website includes mention that the laboratory evidence of increased cancers in animals may not be predictive of cancer risks in humans because the PFOA is metabolized differently in animals than in humans.
