So, what is ptfe?

PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, is a type of synthetic polymer that's commonly used as a non-stick coating for cookware and bakeware due to its excellent heat resistance and low coefficient of friction. It's also utilized in the food industry for its non-reactive properties, which make it suitable for applications such as gaskets, seals and tubing. Despite being chemically inert, PTFE can release toxic fumes when overheated, so it's important to handle and use it with care. The material is widely regarded as safe for food contact, but some studies have raised concerns about potential health hazards associated with prolonged exposure to PTFE.
