Why all the hate still for Dupont Teflon?

OK, I understand there were risks associated with older Dupont Teflon, PTFE if you heated it too high but the new generation Teflon is made without PFOA so it won’t kill your bird and is a much harder finish, so much so that you can use metal utensils on it.

PTFE has always been the best & longest lasting non-stick coating, far outperforming and outlasting ceramic or any other proprietary nonstick coatings that I’ve ever heard of. I have four frying pans coated with DuPont's newest coatings including this one with Platinum:

They new Teflon works great!

I know many will say avoid non stick coatings in favor of seasoned cast iron but nothing is as slippery as Teflon, especially at lower temperatures.
