Ecolution Symphony 9.5" Fry Pan features Hydrolon - PFOA free nonstick which results in fewer greenhouse gases, Hydrolon is water based. We replaced nasty PFOA solvents with water. When the non-stick is applied to the pan water solvent evaporates rather then emitting PFOA into the air. Eco is part of our name and our products. If you share a genuine concern for the planet, we have something in common. We believe that cooking well in the kitchen and doing good for the planet can happen at the same time. Our cookware uses manufacturing techniques that do not include the use of PFOA toxins. Ecolution aims to educate the public on how to recycle old cookware.
