Cookware Beware!

Here is the basic bottom line on the safety of cookware:

Cookware to Avoid:
  1. Aluminum - it is highly acidic and worst of all considered a neurotoxin and may be linked to Alzheimer's disease
  2. Teflon - the chemical used to make the product is not only toxic to the environment but is toxic to you and your family
  3. Any Non-Stick Pans (containing PFOA) - considered by the EPA to be toxic to the environment and is a suspected carcinogenic
Safe Cookware Alternatives:
  1. Stainless Steel
  2. Cast Iron
  3. Glass and Ceramic such as Corningware or Pyrex
  4. Enameled Cast Iron such as Chantal or Le Creuset
Another opportunity to clear out the clutter lurking in your cabinets!
