● What is Teflon?
It is a synthetic polymer material that uses fluorine to replace all hydrogen atoms in polyethylene. Products made of this material are generally referred to as “non-stick coating”/” non-stick wok material “; This material has the characteristics of acid and alkali resistance, resistance to all kinds of organic solvents. At the same time, Teflon has the characteristics of high temperature resistance. Its friction coefficient is very low so it can be used for lubrication, but also become the ideal coating for the inner layer of non-stick pot and water pipe.

● Precautions for using Teflon coated nonstick pans
Non-stick boiler temperature can not exceed 260℃. If exceeding this temperature, it will occur to chemical composition decomposition melting. So it can not dry burning. The temperature of fried food is likely to exceed this limit. The oil temperature of fried dishes is generally over 260℃. In common Sichuan cuisines, such as sweet and sour tenderloin, fried crisp meat, hot kidney flowers, spicy chicken, cooked with “hot oil” the temperature of them may exceed this . So try not to use non-stick pans to do this kind of food. It not only damage the coating, but also may be harmful to health.
Some people like to dry the pan and boil it red before adding oil The temperature of the pot at the moment must exceed 260 ℃ so this behavior must be forbidden when using non-stick pot.
In order to ensure the rapid and uniform heat conduction of non-stick products, aluminum alloy is often used as the raw material for making pots and pans. After the coating falls off, the directly exposed aluminum alloy part will contact with the food. It may lead to high temperature and cause oil smoke, sticking to the pot or overflowing pot and other phenomena. And in the case of excessive high temperature, aluminum will precipitate heavy metal elements. Experts express that we can assure the health of food by avoiding direct contact between the aluminum material of pot body and food.
