The nonstick coatings that Nordic Ware uses on all of its cookware and bakeware products are formulated to our specifications and produced in the USA by coatings companies that also supply the medical, military, foodservice and aerospace industries. We’ve chosen our suppliers because of their ability to meet our very precise quality standards. The coatings we use vary based on what type of food they will be releasing, and what temperatures the cooking vessel will reach. Our bakeware coatings are and have always been PTFE and PFOA-free, since an entirely different formulation is necessary to release sugars (associated with baking) than proteins (associated with meats and dairy). Our cookware coatings can be one of several formulations, depending on what substrate material they’re being applied to (cast aluminum versus aluminized steel). PFOA is not present in any of the coating formulations that we currently use on consumer cookware products. PTFE (an entirely different compound than PFOA) is the material that gives nonstick surfaces their “slipperiness” and is widely used in consumer cookware coatings, including many of Nordic Ware’s stovetop cookware products.
Teflon ® is a registered trademark of DuPont and refers to a specific nonstick coating that they exclusively manufacture. Teflon® is not used by Nordic Ware for any consumer cookware or bakeware finishes at this time. If you have additional questions about the nonstick coatings that Nordic Ware uses, Please feel free to contact Nordic Ware. Our in-house customer experience expert will be happy to assist you in any way they can.
