PFOA Free Logo

Circulon is dedicated to helping consumers lead a healthier lifestyle through non-toxic fat-free healthy cooking.  All of our non-sticks are non-toxic and completely safe to use.  They are designed to release food easily, preventing sticking, so little to no fat or oil is needed. 

We have always complied with government regulatory agencies worldwide and do not use PFOA in the making of the non-sticks we apply to our cookware.  Regulatory agencies worldwide have concluded that PTFE non-stick manufactured without the use of the component called PFOA is not a risk to consumers.

All Circulon non-stick is completely PFOA free.

DuPont, the manufacturer of the non-stick coating on all Circulon cookware only use non-stick technologies to make PTFE non-stick without PFOA.

PTFE is short for polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a slippery, tough and non-flammable synthetic material known as the non-stick coating on a pan. PFOA is short for perfluorooctanoic acid, a synthetic chemical compound that, in the past, was used as a component of PTFE.

DuPont non-stick coatings are formulated to resist peeling or chipping with normal use. However, in the event that particles of DuPont non-stick are accidently eaten, there is no cause for concern. DuPont non-stick is non-toxic and inert. If accidently eaten, the non-stick particles will pass directly through the body and will not be absorbed.

PTFE non-stick coatings have been in the market for over 70 years with a superb record of consumer safety.
