PANS: NOT TOO HOT

Despite concerns about the danger of toxic emissions from nonstick pans, most sources consider them safe if you take some precautions. Don't overheat the pans, which can cause the nonstick coatings to break down. Most manufacturers direct you to keep the pans below 500 degrees, or use them only up to the medium setting on the stove. So you wouldn't want to use one to sear a steak, but gentle cooking something like eggs or fish should be fine. Don't preheat the pans. And if your pan shows any sign that the nonstick coating is flaking or scratching off, stop using the pan.
