I want to replace all my cookware to make it all envionmentally friendly, and safe for me and those I cook for. No more teflon, plastic, or anything that releases chemicals and is absorbed into my body. I have some LeCreuset Pots, which are all enamel-based, cast iron, or stainless steel. I had thought about just buying more LeCreuset pots, especially for sauteing, but not sure if they are 100% safe. They seem to be, but I am not sure.
I haven't used gladware or other plasic-based food storage containers in over 2 years, and have really come to love pyrex. Glass doesn't leach icky chemicals in our food and bodies like plastic does. :) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
Good question. i noticed my teflon pan when making my hubby a veggie burger tonight had the teflon peeling away its that old. i need new ones bad and would love to know whats eco friendly too. I'm still trying to find my eco friendly pillows too!!
I really want these, but I can't afford the whole set at the moment. I'm thinking of asking for it for my birthday, though I might end up just getting their skillet and switching to stainless steel pots instead. I want the teflon out of my life!
I just replaced my pots with a line called WearEver (which is a line offered at Walmart). They come a few different ways - tefoln and such but I chose the stainless steal pots. I have really enjoyed them and they are holding up nicely. 2 pots, a skillet, and a big soup pot all with glass lids that strain and a few serving peices cost $59. If you skip the strainning part the pots cost around $39.
I responded earlier to another post by Billi Jo before I saw this one. I got the Cuisinart GreenWare Eco-friendly 10 pc cookware set for Christmas. %70 recycled steel handles, PTFE/PFOA free, petroleum free, "Ceramica" non-stick coating instead of Teflon, and requires less energy to reach cooking temperature. I know there are probably even friendlier cookware sets out there, but they are really expensive! The Cuisinart set was pretty reasonable for 10 pcs. I'd like cast-iron skillets but I can barely lift them they're so heavy!
