Is It Safe to Use a Burned Teflon Pan?

Please help! I burned some food in a Teflon coated aluminum saucepan. I think it is FaberWare. The gray Teflon turned black. Is it still safe to use?

Teflon is horrible for your health! Toss it! I got 2 wonderful vision glassware skillets from the good will As Is store for $1.00 each; or 50 cents each; work wonderful!

No and don't buy anymore. I think they should stop making them.

No, Teflon is unsafe generally and even worse at very high temperatures. Throw all Teflon away and use only stainless steel or glass. I threw mine away finally and am using stainless with oil spray for no sticking. I agree with Lilac that it should not exist.

Absolutely no! But don't just throw it way! You can recycle it or take the handle off and use as a planter or use it to store small items under your kitchen or bathroom sink. :-)

Do you mean old fashioned teflon from decades ago or the newer non-stick stuff?

I used a cleaning cloth called the wash up wiz that I got from www.washupwiz.com. It's made for non stick surfaces and it does lots more to boot. A mate of mine turned me onto it while I was in the UK
