Drop the Non-Stick Pans For This

Non-stick skillets are being dumped left right and centre for their PTFE coatings which emit a gas when heated beyond medium. (The speckles and flakes will pass right through you somewhat harmlessly but their presence means you are inhaling more of this toxic gas.) Luckily, the solution is something you can buy at a yard sale for $3 or steal from your mom. Cast-iron pans take a little tiny bit of care (scrape, rub with oil and reheat to dry) but is just as “non-stick” when all is said and done.
