New! Ceramic coating, totally PFOA- and PTFE-free.5 August 2008
The new ceramic non-stick coating on BEKA products is PTFE- and PFOA-free. Cook in a healthy way and with care for the environment!
PFOA is a chemical that is used in the manufacturing process of traditional non-stick coatings. It is not present in finished cookware, so there is never a health risk for consumers, but during the manufacturing process the chemical can damage the environment and the health of the factory workers. For the production of the new ceramic coating no PFOA's are necessary.
Ceramic coatings are water-based and do not contain PTFE-chemicals. It is sometimes said that if you would accidentally overheat a traditional non-stick coating, the PTFE-chemicals inside could be released into the air. The ceramic coating can resist much higher temperatures than a traditional coating, so there is less chance of overheating and damaging the coating. The ceramic coating is very hard and has a contemporary glossy look.
A new generation of non-stick pots and pans is born. Discover the BEKA Vitapan and the Suave items with a ceramic coating now on this website! Also take a look at our other environmentally friendly products under the label Eco-logicby BEKAor contact us for more information.
