A. Hi, Don. I see teflon lubricants, of course =>

But please DON'T EVEN THINK about spraying anything like that onto a food surface! It is not meant for that purpose! Lubricants (besides not sticking to the pan) may be highly poisonous. Quote from the vendor's data sheet: "DO NOT use this product in an attempt to repair or resurface any type of cooking equipment"

Q. I need a non sticking spray coating for my carbon steel round die for wood pellet production. The wood pellets get stuck in and not all are discharged.

Do you think the Brownell's Teflon will work?

A. Hi. A baked on teflon spray may be of some value for your wood pellet dies, but sending them out for hard chrome plating would probably be a lot more effective. Good luck.

Q. Several years ago, grandfather coated an old waffle iron with a coating that has lasted for way over 40 years after he gave it to us. Can anyone tell me what may have been used to coat this waffle iron? I think maybe it was Teflon but not sure. It still works great after using many years.

thumbsdownThanks Tareq, but that stuff is for 'incidental contact', like spraying the bearings of a conveyor belt in a bakery despite some chance of a tiny amount somehow getting inadvertently transferred into the food. It is certainly not meant to be sprayed onto the cooking side of pots and pans.

A. It was taken off the market. We used this product from Harriet Carter years ago. It never stayed on for long and would flake off, sometimes unnoticed in your food. It was determined to cause many digestive cancers and deemed unsafe by the FDA.

Also, teflon coated pans break down in high heats, also posing a cancer risk. I did a paper on this in college; the info can be googled, "cancer risk linked to teflon cookware." Stick with cast iron or for easy cleanup use stainless steel. Anything burnt on stainless steel can easily be removed by boiling soap and water in the dirty pan for 20 or so minutes.

A. Regarding:Food Grade Non Stick Re-Coating:
I am regular user of Non Stick Cooking/Baking Pans,
I foresee that the bake process auto paint (Matte Finish) may work for re-coating, after a complete preparation of surface needs re-coating.

thumbs up sign  Thanks Abid. You may be right, but I would remind users in the USA that the FDA and NSF generally tell us what is acceptable and unacceptable to use on pots & pans ... and I'm not personally aware of auto paint being considered acceptable.

Q. Hello, I am Darrell Huskey, just a regular guy trying to invent a serving spoon. I need to know if I can apply Teflon to a serving spoon to make it slick or more slick please. This does not involve high heat.

A. Hi Darrel. You can't apply it yourself (it's an industrial process requiring etching, and evolving carcinogenic gasses during the processing), but yes it can be applied to a serving spoon.

Q. We have a Smoker that has a Stainless Steel drip tray where everything drops down on it and sticks like crazy, even if you spray it with Pam. It is used at a low temp and does not come in direct contact with food. Can you put a teflon spray on that? What do you recommend?

A. It's a public forum, anyone can respond. But me, I probably would not bother buying and spraying such a product on it; but you could try Belray No-Tox Food Grade Dry PTFE Spray or Interflon Food Lube -->
or something similar, but only if it specifically says it's okay (if it's not expensive it may not be foodsafe). Have you tried mineral oil, which is much cheaper?

Luck & Regards,

Q. Interesting thread. I'm here because I've got a bbq grilling spatula that is no longer being made, so I can't simply replace it. But, I'm in love with the thing an want to keep using it. The original spatula has a non-stick coating on it that is beginning to wear away on the edge where it rubs the grilling surface.

Any suggestions on something - anything - that would prolong the life on this thing? Maybe just high-heat flat spray paint?
