Safety of Ceramic Nonstick Cookware - "Ecopan"

tsbbklyn | Jan 17, 201101:39 PM     11

A question on ceramic nonstick cookware - is it safe? We've been using our new "Ecopan," purchased at HomeGoods, which says it is PTFE and PFOA-free. The Ecopan Web site says it uses a water-based coating, which does not produce any toxic fumes. But it doesn't say what else is in the water-based coating. http://www.ecopan-cookware.com/index.php

It's really light and easy to clean. In fact, it's been working so well for us that we're not using our Le Creuset skillet, which used to be our go-to pan. But I do want to be sure the Ecopan is safe -- any ideas?

Thanks so much.
