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?

No throw it away, don't take a chance and ruin your health!
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?
