Frequently asked questions

The inner coatings of Lagostina non-stick pans are made with multiple layers of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), an extraordinary plastic material that causes the "slippery" component of non-stick pans. PTFE consists of tetrafluoroethylene molecules, exclusively containing carbon and fluoride. The non-stick coating is not attacked by acids or alkaline bases and is very stable when heated. The health authorities in the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Europe and other countries have approved use of PTFE non-stick coatings in the cookware. It is an inert substance that has no chemical reactions with food, water or detergents. If ingested it is totally harmless; the particles are not toxic and are expelled on their own like normal fibres. The non-stick coating is so safe that it is used also in medicine to coat pace makers and artery replacement prostheses, and has even been injected into patients with severe kidney conditions. For all non-stick coatings Lagostina guarantees the absence of PFOA, cadmium and lead. The absence of those components on the finished product is therefore assured, both its absence in the raw material and for the methods it is treated with. The guarantee on Lagostina coatings covers manufacturing defects, such as bubbles in the coating, flaking and various peeling. It does not cover defects caused by misuse or professional use or by wear.

To preserve the non-stick properties of the product:
- avoid heating it excessively when empty;
- never overheat while cooking fat and oil;
- slight scratches and abrasions that might appear with use do not change the coating's non-stick performance;
- to preserve and avoid scratching the coating, we recommend using tools made of nylon, silicone or wood.

In case of burned food, fill the pot with warm water and clean it after a few hours. To restore the non-stick properties of the product, rub the coating with a cotton pad soaked with oil.
The PTFE coating of Lagostina products is free from PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), lead and cadmium. PTFE is an inert substance that has no chemical reactions with food, water or detergents; it is completely harmless, even in the event it is ingested, and its particles are non toxic. At Lagostina we always play it safe!
A scratched pan is not dangerous, however we recommend replacing scratched pans as the detachment of the non-stick coating exposes food to contact with the metal underneath and food tends to stick. The PTFE coating of Lagostina products is free from PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), lead and cadmium, and is completely harmless.
PTFE is characterised by absolute chemical inertia, therefore any ingested splinters from the damaged coating of a non-stick pan are not dangerous.
