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 RACO non-stick is completely PFOA free. We 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.

Our non-stick coatings are formulated to resist peeling or chipping with normal use. However, in the event that particles of non-stick are accidentally eaten, there is no cause for concern. The non-stick is non-toxic and inert. If accidentally eaten, the non-stick particles will pass directly through the body and will not be absorbed.

PTFE non-stick coatings have been in the market for over 7 decades with a superb record of consumer safety.

Any time, you see the icon below in relation to RACO cookware, you can be assured that it is PFOA Free and contains no lead or cadmium.
