If the coating is peeling toss it IMMEDIATELY. Shop on Amazon for a replacement. If you want a non-stick, don't spend an arm and a leg on it. They can't be heated to high temps anyway, and will not brown meats as well as SS--Plus not getting to a high enough heat.

I had to make that decision myself when the time came to replace all that Teflon-coated cookware.

I hated to throw it away for sentimental reasons, but this became unattrative, dull and ugly, though I liked the blue color.

I'd agree with the group here, toss it or pass it along. Take a few pictures of it, remember the good times and then think of all the fun you'll have with your new pan

Yes. You could become ill when that stuff flakes into your food.

Great idea Pds If you're into "country style" crafts I've also seen old skillets and pans used as the frame for things like finished cross stictches.
