Avoid Teflon and any other Non-stick pans!

Alot home cooks are throwing away their Teflon coating pans.

Anodized pan, Ceramic and aluminium are also not safe.

The safest pans are Cast iron and stainless steels.

Also, if you and your family members often suffers from flu-like symptoms. These may be the after effects of teflon inhalation, known as Teflon Flu

I am also not in favour of non-stick or teflon cookware.

Anyone using rice cooker with stainless steel inner pot? Currently, I am using Tefal rice cooker that is non-stick.

What about enameled cast iron wares, like the ones NTUC is offering now?

Alternatively, can consider steaming rice.
