Iíve been baking with Pyrex forever and I love it. Iíve never had a single problem. The stoneware is new to me and I only have baking tray style (like cookie sheets) since itís hard to get a decent metal cookie sheet that isnít nonstick. And because they were gifts. I LOVE them, nothing sticks to them, and theyíre very easy to clean, but I canít reconcile myself to the price difference for anything else. My new Pyrex 9x13 was around $15, the Pampered Chef 9x13 is $42 plus shipping.

Re: PTFE's, PFOA's, Silicon, and Ceramic Cook/Bakeware

This is a brilliant thread thank you so much for the information. I am a newbie Green Cheek Conure owner and I am about to order stainless steel saucepans but before I do this would you happen to know if Tefal Cookware is safe they say on the website that

"Tefal was one of the first manufacturers to eliminate PFOA from its non-stick coatings over a decade ago. Tefal non-stick coated cookware products are subject to very regular analyses carried out by independent laboratories under the strictest methodologies. These checks have systematically established the absence of PFOA in Tefal utensils"

I do have Tefal pots and pans so before I give then away I wanted to check.

Thanks so much

Hmm....Where did you see that they removed PTFOA from their coatings? When I researched, I concluded that Tefal was not safe and I threw all of mine away. I was under the impression that it did contain Teflon/ptfe/ptfoa...They definitely have some sort of black/grey coating that scratches and flakes over time, and research aside, it looks and acts just like other Teflon products that I have owned in the past (pre-bird).

Is it possible that they are PTFOA free but still contain PTFE?
