Note #40: "About frying pans"
The most harmless for cooking are cast-iron pans and pans with a silicon coating. In contrast, non-stick frying pans (and especially those with an already broken non-stick coating!)they are considered harmful to health, as this coating releases toxins during the heating process. A new cast-iron frying pan must be calcined before use. To do this, you need to pour a layer of salt on its bottom, then put the pan on the fire and heat it well. Next, use clean paper to wipe the pan with the same salt, then grease it with fat and heat it again.
