T-fal’S COMMITMENTS
for a better tomorrow

T-fal is committed to
safe & healthier cooking

For 60 years, T-fal has constantly innovated to offer eco-friendly, safe and quality products to guarantee successful healthy cooking on a daily basis.

Safe Cooking : PFOA free PTFE coating

T-fal was one of the first manufacturers to eliminate PFOA from its non-stick coatings over a decade ago.


T-fal non-stick coated cookware products are subject to very regular analyses carried out by independent laboratories under the strictest methodologies. These checks have systematically established the absence of PFOA in T-fal utensils.

PFOA FREE coating

PFOA – perfluorooctanoic acid – was used by some manufacturers to synthesize PTFE

Safe coating: PTFE inert coating

T-fal was the first to use PTFE as the main component of its non-stick coatings.


Public Health Authorities in Europe and in the United States have demonstrated that PTFE is an inert substance with no effect on health, even in the case of ingestion. These authorities have confirmed the health safety of PTFE.

Lower fat cooking

For public health reasons, authorities recommend to limit the consumption of fat.


In 1956, T-fal launched the first non-stick coating cookware, enabling cooking with little to no oil. On top of this nutritional benefit it helps to better preserve the original flavor of food.

 

 

No overheating

Since 2000, T-fal products are equipped with Thermo-Spot© technology which turns full red when the pan has reached the ideal temperature.


It guarantees perfect texture, perfect color and perfect taste for delicious full-flavored meals every day.

 

 

Healthy cooking day after day

Our researchers work with the constant aim to extend the durability of our coatings so they remain non-stick, safe and scratch free even after years of intensive cooking.

T-fal answers
Your questions

Are PTFE and PFOA alike?

PTFE and PFOA are often confused:

- PTFE: Polytetrafluoroethylene is an inert substance that does not react with food. The harmlessness of PTFE has been scientifically proven by the highest Health Authorities.

- PFOA: Perfluorooctanoic acid is a chemical substance, still used by some manufacturers, which is suspected to have negative health effects.

Yeas ago, T-fal was one of the pioneers of PFOA free coatings. On top of that T-fal also ensures the absence of lead and cadmium in its products.  

 

Why choose T-fal PTFE coating?

- For healthy cooking with less oil and fat: thanks to PTFE non-toxic non-stick material properties.

- For successful cooking: great searing of the food with non-stick coating.

- Easy to clean: due to its hydrophobic material properties.

- Long lasting: PTFE is a non-stick material: T-fal Titanium Excellence PTFE coating lasts up to 3 times longer*.

 

Is PTFE coating safe for your health?

Public Health Authorities in Europe and in the United States have demonstrated that PTFE is an inert substance with no effect on health, even in the case of ingestion.

These authorities have confirmed the health safety of PTFE coatings in cooking utensils. Moreover, PTFE is frequently used in medicine, to cover pacemakers or create implants.

Is it dangerous to cook in a scratched pan?

T-fal non-toxic cookware products are designed to be long lasting without deteriorating. However, inadvertently swallowing a piece of the coating is quite harmless.

As the studies conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC): the human body does not assimilate the particles, which remain utterly harmless.

However, scratches can cause a reduction in the non-stick qualities of the utensil: so it is best to replace the product concerned.
