In our research regarding non-stick cookware, as it pertains to human health and environmental contamination, the main area of concern lies with Pas, a synthetic chemical used during the production process of PTFE coatings (aka Teflon).

The manufacturing process for today’s PTFE based nonstick cookware involves another type of Pas chemical called Gene, which has an unproven safety profile. If you’re a supremely experienced home chef and love to cook for friends and family on the weekends and squeeze in a few sessions during the week, our recommendation, start with a foundational set of cookware like Made In’s Stainless Steel, or a Caraway set and fill in from there.
Then, if you like to use high heat cooking techniques to add extra texture and flavor, we recommend one, two, or even a set of Made In’s Blue Carbon Steel. If you’re quicker in and out of the kitchen with minimal prep, cook, and clean time we definitely recommend Caraway.
