Healthier cooking for
a better tomorrow

Healthier cooking for
a better tomorrow

T-fal Commitment:

T-fal non-stick coated cookware products are subject to very regular analyses carried out by independent laboratories under the strictest methodologies.

This product contains PTFE for non-stick properties; PTFE is listed in the CECBP - Priority Chemicals (Biomonitoring California Priority Chemicals list).

Cook with little to no oil

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.

Thermo-Spot® Technology

Since 2000, T-fal products are equipped with Thermo-Spot® technology which turns full red when the pan is properly preheated. 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 and safe even after years of intensive cooking.

What is PTFE?

PTFE or polytetrafluoroethylene is a fluoropolymer. Used in non-stick coatings, it is made up of a chain of thousands of carbon atoms, with two fluorine atoms attached to each carbon atom. This structure gives PTFE a very high chemical inertia, making it harmless to human health, It also makes it exceptionally resistant to high temperature and very “glidable”, providing it with non sticking properties that are ideal for producing a very effective coating for cooking pots and pans.

  • PTFE is known to be inert and non-bioaccumulative. It is frequently used in the medical field (pacemakers, artificial arteries, prostheses, etc.).
  • As studies conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have shown, particles of PTFE that have been swallowed pass through the body, just like any other fiber that flows through the digestive system without being assimilated. Due to its high chemical structure, PTFE has no effect on the body when ingested.
  • Therefore inadvertently swallowing a micro piece of the coating is safe. The human body does not assimilate these particles.
  • However, scratches can reduce the non-stick qualities of the utensil, so we advise you to use it in accordance with brand instruction for use and replace it in case coating alterations.
  • T-fal works constantly to improve the quality and durability of its coatings and is always coming up with more scratch-resistant coatings.

Cookware & Kitchen Electrics Chemicals Disclosure

Groupe SEB always places the wellbeing of its customers at the heart of its concerns. Groupe SEB's absolute priority is to produce safe and highly qualitative products to improve consumers' daily lives. All our products comply with relevant rules established by the federal Food and Drug Administration, including the relevant requirements of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations governing the safe use of product components in contact with food.

California Assembly Bill 1200 ("A.B. 1200") and Colorado House Bill 22-1345 ("H.B. 22-1345") require manufacturers of cookware to disclose the presence of certain chemicals that are intentionally added to the handle of the product or in any product surface that comes into contact with food or beverages. California's A.B. 1200 applies to the chemicals identified on California's Deparment of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) Candidate Chemicals List, while Colorado H.B. 22-1345 applies to PFAS chemicals.

Colorado H.B.22-1345 Disclosure Details:

PTFE coated products contain PFAS chemicals ( polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), perfluoroalkoxy alkane (PFA), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP)), which are used for their non-stick properties.

California A.B. 1200 Disclosure Details:

The following tables identify the products for which a chemical disclosure is required to comply with A.B. 1200.
