I was wondering why every one said to get new pots and pans when going Gluten Free. before I was DX'd we went out and bought 2 new sets paid a good price 300.00 for each set. Then not long after that was DX'd with Celiac. Everyone saying get new pots and pans for gluten-free. 1st we cannot afford a new set. I thought about getting one or two cheaper pans but really don't have the room. SO I scrubbed them as good as can be!! Well now I just read a thread that said if you use Teflon or Cast iron get new.. All my pots and pans are Stainless steel ... I scrubb the hebegees out of them !! I don't use the same pot for Gluten noodles as I do for gluten-free.  But anyway ... I have not had a problem what so ever... Does it make a difference if they are Stainless steel compared to teflon?

Stainless steel are easy to clean and deal with. The teflon is an issue because it can get scratches in it that can make it difficult to clean.

We replace cooking tools that we can not be certain have no gluten in the cracks and crevices.  If you can clean them well, they are fine.  A colander would be hard to clean out every little hole.  A pan, like cast iron, that has cracks or pores, would be hard to clean.  Just use a little common sense - if its cleanable -it should be fine.

I read on about.com (author Jane Anderson) and old threads here on this forum that cast iron is fine.  You do need to run it through the cleaning cycle of your oven and then re-season it.  I haven't had any problems.  I did toss out all teflon though and treated myself to a few new pans.  I kept all my old stainless and just scrubbed it well.

Ok well I was thinking (In my head) <-- (can be scary lol) That what the heck! Stainless steel will not absorb any thing , why on earth would I have to buy new? So ok they are Stainless Steel and I keep them very clean!! A friend of mine asks me. How do you keep your pots and pans so clean? My answere is .. I scrub them ... She said Ohh heck no!! I am not doing that! Even my really old pots bake ware and stuff is spotless ... I am a stickler for that...

I bought a new colander and the spoons and such are stainless steel .. Again they are spotless , I re fired my Cast iron skillets , hubbs thinks he gets too much iron from them so he doesn't use them. So I have nice Cast iron Skillets and I have Stainless steel cookware .. That I keep pristine .... TY :) for your answers :) I feel better now ...
