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 ...

    • Teff Intolerance?
      Udi's brand also uses sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in many products, a food additive emulsifier that may cause intestinal symptoms. Emulsifiers help stabilize the bread and give it a great texture but the additive may also possibly be emulsifing the intestinal lining. Our intestinal cell walls are lined with electrically active proteins that are shaped somewhat like bottle brushes with a stiff backbone protein handle topped by electrically active bristles that act like magnets that repel each other and help keep the tube shape of the intestine open. So food additive emulsifiers may be disrupting the ability of the intestinal walls to stay open. Xanthum gum is also an emulsifier.

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      Welcome, @ModernLifeIsWar! Celiac has over 300 symptoms, but it looks like you have some symptoms that appear a lot in those diagnosed with celiac. I suggest you take these symptoms to your doctor and ask for a GI consult and to get the full blod panel to test for celiac disease. The gold standard is an endoscope, where 4 or more biopsies of the intestines are taken. The caveat is that you must be on a diet with gluten for all tests to be accurate, and you must continue eating gluten until all testing is done.  So, if it were me, I would start eating gluten again and get that referral.  However, you need to make the decision that is best or you.  Edited to Add: Also, since you eat a lot of processed food, your body might be reacting to other things, such ad additives. 
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I don't have any real major stomach issues, however I've had a diet for years very high in gluten consisting of tons of junk food (pizza, cookies, cereal, donuts, etc..).  A few symptoms I have noticed over the years have been: -Migraines (very frequent) -Large increase in eye floaters -Very bad sinus congestion -Very bad anxiety -Semi frequent bouts of diarrhea/runny bowel movements. Not all the time, but it certainly happens more than I feel is normal.   However, in terms of stomach pain I haven't noticed much. I do get very bloated sometimes however, mainly just contributed this to my crappy diet. Anyways, since the beginning of April I've been having a lot of neurological issues and after reading more into gluten intolerance I'm wondering if it couldn't be associated: -Full body tremors ranging from hands, arms, legs, and core. (i.e. I shake a lot when doing stuff with my hands, if I try to do sit ups my whole body will shake, etc..). I've had minor hand tremors in the past but this problem has recently blown to a whole new level -Muscle spasms all over and mild cramping -tingling feelings randomly throughout my  body in all parts including face and head -Shortness of breath -Racing heart rate when doing physical activity (i.e. walking upstairs and I'm a fairly active person) -Minor issues with balance and coordination -Brain fog   I'm going to see a neurologist in 3 weeks, but I decided to give gluten free a try as of two days ago. I've also been taking a lot of important vitamins and nutrients (b12, d, b complex, fish oil, magnesium, etc..). I'd be interested to know if anyone here has experienced similar symptoms (most notably tremors and muscle spasms) and had success switching to gluten free. I've seen anecdotal cases posted, so I'm hoping that maybe this is my issue. Another thing to note is my younger sister has very bad stomach issues. She hasn't seen a Dr about it and can't follow a diet to save her life, but she commonly complains of pain, gas, bloating, nasty bowel movements, etc... after eating out. So I think there is a possible genetic factor here. What would be the best Dr to seek out in helping me diagnose such a thing? Also is it normal to have stomach issues AFTER starting gluten free? Today is my third day and I've had 2 bouts of diarrhea and very loud stomach growling. Possibly from switching from a diet full of sugar and gluten to one with significantly less and gluten free?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
