Silit cookware coatings: Silargan vs CeraProtect

skyline | Aug 9, 2011 08:06 AM

Okay, I am still tempted by the Silit frypan even though I will probably need a small crane and derrick to lift the thing, LOL.

Anyway I am looking on the Silit website at the specs for the coatings and now I'm more confused than before. They apparantly have 3 different non-stick surfaces, two of which are Silargan ( ) and Cera-Protect ( ).

According to this, the Silargan is CERAMIC and the CeraProtect is a "MINERAL BASED" coating. The CeraProtect info says it is PFTE-free but the Silargan info does not mention PFTE ... only that it is nickel free (which doesn't matter to me). So now I am wondering if Silargan does use or contain PFTE/PFOA. :-/

Does anyone who has a Silit Silargan pan still have the product literature which maybe mentions the topic of PFOA/PFTE etc at all?

Apparantly it is hard/impossible to get answers to questions about Silit from their USA distributor, Natural Lifestyle. I emailed them twice last week about the weights of the pans and never got any response (which is why I asked here, and thank you tanukisoup for providing the info!). The contact form on Silit's own page defaults to the country of the asker which means it just gets routed to Natural Lifestyle and thus disappears into cyberspace forever, apparantly. :/
