Off day

I got some little blood oranges out of the dumpster. A few of them were moldy, but I salvaged a bunch. There were a few more than seen in this picture, but I ate them. They taste pretty good, but they’re almost disconcertingly “bloody.”

I found this pan today, a block away from my place. Thanks to K for the tipoff. I don’t trust Teflon very much, but this one seems to be in pretty good shape.

What do you guys think about Teflon? I fear it’s long-term effect on my health, but am I overreacting?

  1. I love blood oranges; they are my favourite citrus fruit, but often they’re too expensive to buy.

    As for Teflon and other non-stick pans; I’m okay with it for the most part, but I’d never use it for any high-heat cooking. That’s when it becomes potentially dangerous (or so I’ve read).

    I think Teflon is still better than other metals, like aluminum and stainless steal. It’s terrible for the environment though. There isn’t much you can do with it once it has lost its cooking function, not exactly a recyclable material. So you did well to bring it home.

    Because there’s so much misinformation out there about the Teflon® brand, I’m not surprised that you are concerned. I’m a representative of DuPont though, and hope you’ll let me share some information with you and your readers so that everyone can make truly informed decisions.

    Regulatory agencies, consumer groups and health associations all have taken a close look at the Teflon® brand. This article highlights what they found — the bottom line is that you can use Teflon® non-stick without worry.

    I’d truly be glad to share additional information about it if you are interested, and appreciate your consideration of this comment. Cheers, Sara.
