Choc, thanks for the info. I have one pan that looks similar. My parents bought it for me at the wholesale store (United Grocers Cash and Carry). I don't know if it's the same as what I would get from a restaurant supply store, but it's my second favorite. :-) I might just get another one if my nonstick one gets beaten up too badly.

Unless I'm missing something jenny may have a point - should non-stick coating just rub off?????? Sounds like a manufacturer's defect.

If you take a steel wool or brillo pad to it, or use metal utensils w or w/o heat, it will rub off. Teflon will rub off. Brings up another question about these so-called non-stick cooking sprays. We may be cutting down on fat, but what's the damage to our cookware. A tbl of oil...to saute anything -- don't think so. Great topic. Keep em coming.

is ingesting teflon or any other non-stick surface poisonous? (i'm guessing it just passes thru, maybe a little more quickly than other things... )

i'm sure i have eaten my share of it, as well as cat hair.

BT, you must come from good "stock" lol. You're still here to tell us about it...some good dental floss might help. You're making my sides hurt from gigling. BTW, can I have the cat hair recipe.

Bucky, I've read conflicting opinions on the dangers of teflon to humans. Some say that once a non-stick pan is scratched, then you should get rid of it as it allows more to flake each time you use the pan.

Something you really need to be careful of, though--there is a lot of conclusive evidence that the fumes from teflon are deadly to birds. If heated to a high temperature, teflon gives off a gas that is highly poisonous to birds, even if they're in another room.

The cat hair, I'd just consider another source of fiber! I'm sure we've had our share in this household, too!

Did a brillo pad take it down? Or was it damaged through regular cleaning?

IMO, I'd still take it back. I've had very good luck at WS (cause you are paying top dollar there).

and gb, just remember, there's always 100001 %. save that little nugget for when she's mad at you for something...

i had mashed potatoes once, prepared by an ex-gf in my apt., that appeared to have a lot of black pepper in them. it wasn't pepper, but rather non-stick lining. she used a metal bladed hand blender to whip the potatoes in the non-stick pot...
Oh boy Bucky, bet those were the most expensive and jaundiced eyed mashed taters in history... More black pepper anyone
