Regulatory agencies worldwide have concluded that PTFE non-stick manufactured without the use of the component called PFOA is not a risk to consumers.
All Circulon TOTAL™ non-stick is completely PFOA free. The manufacturer of the non-stick coating on Circulon only use non-stick technologies to make PTFE non-stick without PFOA.
PTFE is short for polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a slippery, tough and non-flammable synthetic material known as the non-stick coating on a pan. PFOA is short for perfluorooctanoic acid, a synthetic chemical compound that, in the past, was used as a component of PTFE.
Circulon's TOTAL™ non-stick coatings are formulated to resist peeling or chipping with normal use. However, in the event that particles of the non-stick are accidently eaten, there is no cause for concern. Circulon TOTAL™ non-stick system is non-toxic and inert. If accidently eaten, the non-stick particles will pass directly through the body and will not be absorbed.
