Current question:

November 27, 2021

Q. Hey there,

I'm Sonia and I have zero knowledge about cookware coating, so I'm coming here for help since I couldn't find an answer to my question anywhere around the internet, and I tried quite hard.

So,
I have a cookware part (a pot for a Jetboil portable stove) made from anodized aluminum which got a bit of a burn from food at the bottom.

I'm trying to find a way how to fix it, but I haven't found any local company that does re-anodizing.

Although I'm planning to send another pot for Teflon recoating, and I was wondering, if it would be a good idea to recoat the anodized pot with Teflon and if there would be any side effects? Or if it could potentially damage the pot even more?

Thanks in advance for any help.
Sonia

A. Hi Sonia. You may not find your local company willing to do teflon coating on that Jetboil pot either :-(

As I understand it, Jetboil pots are not simple pots, but are built with special heat gathering aluminum ribbons, and I would be reluctant to re-engineer the heat transfer on such a product by applying teflon in place of anodizing.

Luck & Regards,

Q. Hi Ted,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Can you please explain what exactly "heat gathering aluminum ribbons" are?
Is it the bottom part underneath the actual pot? If so, I think it may be removable (I'm not sure if it is because I don't have it with me at the moment), so if you're left with really only the actual container, is it still a bad idea? Would it make noticeable difference in physical properties to put on a different coating?

I just want to make sure if this is really not an option. :)

Thank you again.

Regards,

A. Hi Sonia. If you google "Jetboil" you'll see the video explaining their "Flux Ring" designed to make their pots heat up very fast. You've already burnt food in it and destroyed the anodized coating ... maybe it works :-)

You're free to do anything you wish if your applicator can do it for you. But we all have our personal concerns ... and while teflon on normal pots & pans doesn't bother me, adding it to someone else's special design does. It might dangerously overheat; and if it doesn't, it still might interfere with the heat transfer enough to spoil the idea of Jetboil. I'm only saying I personally wouldn't do it, not that you can't.

Luck & Regards,

thumbs up sign Hi Ted,

I see, that makes sense. I probably won't do it then.
Thank you again for your answers.

Q. I am writing from the Republic of South Africa I have been trying to find a company to re-coat kitchen utensils which the Teflon coating has worn off of. I have been unsuccessful. Is there someone who can help either by informing on how the process is done or going further and maybe starting a business venture. I have found that there is a great demand for this and no known solution to this problem in this country.

Teflon Coating Service for Waffle Irons

2001

Q. I am a professional chef and I have recently purchased a used cast material electric waffle iron that has been acid dipped and has some problems with sticking. I found this forum and thought I would chance asking if it is possible to have this item coated with teflon. I don't really know where to begin my search. The average prolonged temperature of the machine is 325-450 °F for about 3 hours at a time on a daily basis. Is there a product that I can purchase to coat it myself or do I have to take it to a machine shop that uses teflon?

Non-stick coatings for stove drip pans

2004

Q. I am a housewife with an idea. I am trying to determine if there is a practical way to put a non stick coating similar to what is used on frying pans or the new celebrity grills onto the drip pans for electric stoves. If the coatings on the new grills and rotisseries on the market can withstand the heat then it should be possible to make a drip pan from the same substance. Not everyone has the new ceramic top stoves and I believe there are other homemakers who would welcome the idea. I think the result could be marketable and I would love to see a company try to produce something like it. Replacement drip pans currently come in chrome or black enamel for about $5.00 each but food and spills don't always scrub off after they have been cooked on. The new grills simply wipe clean when they cool off no matter how nasty things cooked on. Thanks for listening.

!! Better not have any pet birds if you want to introduce non-stick on your drip pans! Heated, these can kill your birds in minutes. Read the following links before you use ANY non-stick stuff in a household that has pet birds:

If anyone wants to offer the NAME & TOWN of coating services that do waffle irons & cookware, that's okay! But please omit any 'testimonial' aspect. (why?) The internet is largely anonymous and some "recommendations" were submitted by company representatives posing as satisfied customers; we've had to discard some postings and do significant editing out of sales pap on others.

A. Roberta,

This site mainly deals with mainstream industrial platings and coatings. Teflon coating of pans is a specialized niche, and not a common industrial process. Your best bet may be to call the manufacturer of the pan.

A. Hi Roberta. There have been a few companies doing this at one time:

- OPI, 2208 S. 19th St., Sheboygan, WI was mentioned in the Minneapolis Star Tribune in the FixitUp Answer and Question section many years ago, but I don't think they offer that service anymore if they ever actually did. It's not mentioned on their website (opicoatings.com) and it could have just been a misunderstanding by an overeager reporter :-)

- Frypanman.com in Vancouver, WA was another service, but that domain now seems to be just a "link farm" for many years now.

Some shops that do teflon coating have told us that it's possible to re-coat pots & pans, but except for exotic chef's pans not really economically feasible -- the old issue that the labor time of onezy-twozy refinishing makes it more expensive than a mass-produced replacement.

Q. Many years ago I purchased a spray can of Teflon coating from a hardware store. I sandblasted my waffle iron and followed the directions on the can. It was then baked in my oven and has served me for many years and looks as good as the original one. I haven't been able to find this product again WHY?

John Grafton

A. Hi John. To quibble over details, I doubt that the spray was exactly teflon. Please see thread 10027, "NON-STICK COOKWARE SPRAY TO FIX POTS & PANS?" which has hundreds of entries on that subject and concludes that it is no longer available anywhere, and guesses why, and explains exactly what that spray actually was :-)

Although there are teflon sprays (lubricants) available in hardware stores, and bake-able non-stick coatings available from gunsmiths, they are NOT food-safe! They may contain petroleum distillates and other poisons -- don't even consider it.

Recoating Teflon for Jenn Aire grills

2006

Is there a way to recoat the teflon that is coming off of my grills on my Jenne Aire outside electric grill. new ones from Jenne aire are $69 each and I would need four of them. Is there a less expensive solution?

Pat McDonald
home owner - Leesburg, Florida

2006

A. I'm sure your grills could be sandblasted, and re-teflon coated. I also would imagine it would be cheaper than $280. Look in the Yellow Pages under either painters, and/or Powder coatings (a lot of places do both), and you should be able to find a job shop that can handle the job. Make sure they use "food grade" teflon.

Recoating a Griddle

February 6, 2010

Q. I have an expensive stove griddle that is made of cast aluminum. It seems to have a dark, maybe "teflon" coating over it. The coating is waring off. To find another griddle is difficult, or impossible. I need to restore this griddle.

What are my options? I understand to recoat this if it is "teflon" is maybe not possible anymore. Since it is aluminum cast metal, can another process recoat it? How about "powder coating?" If there is any other process available out there, please direct me to the sources. Thank You.

Q. Is there a business that will resurface an electric fry pan. It has handles that can be removed (plastic) otherwise all metal. This pan is obsolete and I have 2 of them because they are perfect for 2 people. Can the product on the new fry pan advertised on tv be applied to an old fry pan? Would like to contact someone that does reapply non stick coating.

Teflon Finish on catering pans

September 30, 2018

Q. With regard to the refinishing of Teflon coating on catering equipment and having read quite a few threads on the subject ...
To me the answer that we may be looking for is not Teflon coating (which is a mineral based product which is not cleared for use in catering refinishing products) it could be the old fashioned system of "Stove Enameling" whereby the used catering equipment is blasted with bead or other means then the base metal is polished up then the paints are applied in a series of layers, then the unit is baked in an oven to produce the stove enameling effect.
Am I on the right track or tell me if I am wrong.
Awaiting your replies

Q. I have two pieces of Club with old scratched Teflon that is no longer useable. Before I throw them out, I would like to know if there is someone out there that would remove the remaining Teflon and finish the surface back to a useable one. They are both in great shape except for their surfaces. Thanking you in advance.

A. Hi Jimmie. It's an expensive process so the applicators seem to focus on industrial and restaurant cookware more than residential.

But google "repair nonstick cookware" and you will see at least a couple of companies offering to do it for premium residential cookware.
