Toxin Free Kitchen Equipment

Many experts warn against chemicals found in kitchenware. The FDA has discovered that certain chemicals (specifically PFOA, or perfluorooctanoic acid) used in manufacturing Teflon (also known as PTFE or polytetrafluoroethylene, if you’re fancy) are actually toxic to the environment and our health, and can build up in your body over time.

I discuss ALL the chemicals of concern in food and kitchen equipment in my toxins webinar.

    Wether you are pregnant or have a small baby, choosing the right equipment is even more essential.


    • Ceramic, which is nonstick, scratch-resistant and very easy to clean
    • Cast iron, which will last for years when treated well, is extremely versatile and retains heat like nobody’s business
    • Carbon steel, which is similar to cast iron but is smoother and more lightweight
    • Stainless steel, which is not nonstick but is durable, widely available and often relatively inexpensive


    Finding toxin free kitchen equipment in the Middle East can be hard. I gathered below from my research products that I found on Amazon.
