Yestarday I was getting ready to saute some onions on one of my non stick pans that are left, and there was a strong odor. I tried another burner to see if maybe it was just the burner and if something had gone down into the range or something, but after heating it up on another burner the odor was still apperant. Anyone have any idea what that mightbe?


Do you cook with bottled LP gas? If you do, in the bottom of the tank is a gas that you can smell, to alert you that you are about to run out of gas.

CHeck lots of places for metalic taste: mixer or beaters, whisk, water etc.

It is possible for the pancake ingredients to react with raw aluminum but that would have to be a pretty big scratch. Make the pancakes simultaneously in two pans one scratched teflon, one not. Both taste metalic? not the pan.

FUmes? dirty pan bottom, soap residue, lp gas odor (as stated above)

What brand of pans? Quality pans last generations. (but all my relatives died..maybe it was the pans??)

Thanks. I did a switch of the baking soda & powder, these were the culprits. Pancakes taste normal again.
