My Son Cooked Gluten In My Non-Stick Skillet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son cooked grilled cheese sandwiches (with regular white bread) in my Paula Deen non stick skillet. It has about three very small scratches in the coating, and up until now I wasn't too worried about them. Can I still use this skillet, or do I need to get another one?

I think I would use it ....on his backside. If one of my teen boys did that, they would have to go to the store, maybe 3 or 4 stores, until I found a new one I liked. They would then have to buy it. The shopping is part of the punishment.

Seriously, I would get a good look at it and then probably soak it and then soak the cracks with vinegar and wash again. That's if it really only has 3 little scratches. Otherwise, see above.

Oh, believe me I'm mad.gif. I'd like to use it somewhere on him besides his backside. I'm going to soak it in hot water with dish detergent tonight, and then do the vinegar soak and wash again. Hopefully it will work, because I can't afford to go and get another one.

Thanks for the tips. Too bad I will have to test it to see if it worked. If I get sick I'll use it on him! I've taken meticulous care of my Paula Deen cookware. It was one of the first things I bought after I found out I had celiac. Just something that made me feel better about cooking so much more lol. smile.gif

My dietitian never told me to replace my cookware and said it should be safe with regular cleaning. I *did* buy some stainless steel stuff because my non-stick stuff was scratched up, and I really don't like/trust non-stick surfaces.

I'd use it. Triple wash it and then use it....but I'd make them cook their own dinner for awhile in their own pans :)

The first couple times use it to cook something gluten-free, but feed it to the family. It may help in getting rid of gluten that didn't wash out.

I would be as worried about the toxins from the non stick surface just as much the contamination from the gluten. Personally, I would pitch the thing and purchase a stainless steel pan.

I think you should be fine. I never even replaced my cast iron skillets and I have not goten sick from cross contamination.

hhdavid,

I don't have an answer for you about your cookware but instead have a few questions as i still need pointers on living in a shared house.

Are you sensitive to cross contamination?

Do you use separate plates, silverware, etc.?

Do you share hand towels?

I make sure all dishes are rinsed before going in the dishwasher and only I unpack it to make sure nothing gets cc. I use paper towels for washing my hands for opening cupboard doors, preparing food, etc. I only eat food that I prepare myself. The list goes on and on.

I'm still not healthy but am not positive that cc is the issue. It may be other food intolerances, rice possibly one of them, but I'm having a hard time pinpointing what is going on.

I haven't had any problems with my good non-stick pans int he 9+ months that I have been gluten-free (I didn't replace them). {They are the ones that you are supposed to be able to use metal in (not that I ever would) so I know they are a more durable surface.} Given it's paula dean, I would assume it is high quality and should be fine.

Never underestimate the power of a good lecture...your son will never do THAT again! :D
