    What is the best cookware for non-stick cooking without teflon?

    I'm considering purchasing a durable cookware set and want the benefits of non-stick cooking but don't want to use teflon. Some options I've looked at are anodized aluminum versus stainless steel or copper bottoms.

    Yeah there are rumors that teflon can get into your system and screw with a persons brain. I've also heard that aluminum may cause alheimer (sp.)

    Cast Iron on the other adds iron to your system that the body needs. Must be true because our forefathers and foremothers have been using cast iron for centuries.

    But life expectancy was in the high 50's.....Sooooo

    I have a set of iron pots and pans that were made in the '70's, still work like new....I use them when we camp.

    My wife (she is one hell of a cook) uses All Clad almost exclusively, she always says the trick is seasoning them, hers are made in the U.S. and are older, but they're awesome.

    You should check em out...

    Wife bought a teflon pan from Wallyworld, cooked in it one time and her face broke out in big red splotchs. It was all around her mouth and cheeks, it was bad. No more teflon here.

    While at one time researchers sought to find a connection between aluminum and Alzheimers, but no such connection was ever proven and researchers moved on to to other areas of interest.

    It is now considered a myth.

    While I like Cast Iron, I really like my Stainless All Clad copper core set. After a proper seasoning it is just as slippery as the best teflon....

    Bought a set of Cephalon from Costco about three years ago. I like em almost as much as my cast iron.
    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........
