Non-stick Pan scratches

Hi all,

I have some nonstick pans with a few scratches and chips in the nonstick coating. Is there anything to be worried about with that coating? The coating is not coming off into any of the food, but I want to make sure that it is still safe to use

Thanks

Yes it is still safe to use. The worst that will happen is that some food might stick to the areas where is is scratched or chipped. Ingesting the non stick coating is harmless.

Although you may find that formerly substantial foods no longer "stick to your ribs!"

Hello and welcome to DC. The non-stick pan scratches won't be a problem but somethings may stick.
