    Does this look safe?

    Oops moment results in me needing a new loaf dish.

    Does this look safe? Non stick but bpa and ptfe free. But it mentions silicone. My frying pan is same brand (so impressed) but that's not silicone... Thoughts please?


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Silicone at certain temps could be hazardous. I recommend contacting the seller or the manufacturer. That's a tough call. I have loaf pans, but mine are made of glass, I believe it's Pyrex.

    I use glass loaf pans too, actually all my baking pans are either glass or stoneware pans. Once the stoneware pans get seasoned by the grease you use to coat them with they are better then any non stick pan around.

    Thanks guys

    I had thought there was something about silicone.

    I did have pyrex, but am really struggling to find the right size/shape. But I think I've found ceramic the right size/shape at Aldi. And it's a pretty colour. So yey! Just waiting for the postie


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Re: Does this look safe?

    Nope. Not at all. Especially when we know they're bird safe

    Although now I'm sad cause they're not so good as I'd hoped. Incomplete glazing etc. Dang it. Back to the drawing board

    What about this?

    It's ceramic which is good. Let us know if you purchase it.

    I have a cast iron pan that belonged to my grandmother. It's a Wagner and I think its about 75 years old. Now I'm hankering for some bacon.

    I love it Helen!

    I asked my Mom for cast iron pans for Christmas years ago and she laughed at me but bought them for me and they are my favorite pans. I have a large one and a medium one and I use them all the time. I recently bought a ceramic coated frying pan and my husband loves it which is amazing because he never really liked any of our pans because he loved using Teflon pans. Its hard to find good cooking and baking pans. I do not have birds anymore but in my mind I know if a pan can kill a bird then I should not use them for myself because that stuff also goes into our lungs and bodies too.

    Not just your lungs Dea
    PTFE can accumulate in the liver - and make it harder for your body to function.

    Had that warning from my Mum's oncology nurses when she was on some heavy duty meds. So totally agree. Nope to Teflon anywhere in my house!


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Hah, I recently invested in some GreenPans, they are amazing, I love cooking with them! PTFE and PFOA free. I have stainless steel saucepans but missed the non stick on the frying pans. They were a great investment.

    I have a complete set of stainless steel Farberware pots and pans. I also have my late mothers too. I was in Bed Bath and Beyond not to long ago and I assure you it's not manufactured as nice as the older stuff is.

    I have a set of stainless steel pots and pans too and they are the ones I use everyday. My husband is the picky one and he does not seem to know you got to use a little more oil with stainless when cooking things like fried potatoes. I just bought him a Red Copper Square pan and have not used it yet so I cannot say if it is good or not. It is not thick like my stainless pans but if the hubby likes it I will be happy. They say its PFOA and PTFE free so that is a good plus so hopefully he likes it.

    Re: Does this look safe?

    Personally I like to cook with stainless. The two pans I have are old, and were my moms. She bought them in 1957, and to this very day they never wear out, are easy to clean, and I use them most everyday. I would have no clue how well stainless pans would last today, since I do not think anything we buy these days is quality made. However, I would recommend stainless. I think it is the best.
