    Once it peels please dispose of the pot. Your food may be tainted.

    No one can do it

    No one can do it in Malaysia.

    Buffalo Brand makes Stainless Steel Cookware near Kajang, but I doubt they do Non-Stick. But even if they do they will not recoat for you.

    Just throw it away and buy a new pan.

    Pot coating is likely a hi-tech process that Malaysian's don't have a market or capable of it all. Buying a new pot or pan is the prudent choice. I think its natural.
    Here, local metal electroplating can be sloppy or chin chai. You wanna risk it?.

    Sorry, just being curious ... how would the food be tainted? The coating is supposed to be harmless to the body, right?

    Isn't it obvious bits and fallouts from the loose coating may be mixed up in the food with continued use?. The spatula may scrape more of it off to your food. Those coatings ain't exactly a perfect bond to the base metal.
    I threw one coated pan away only recently. I won't even use it for cooking pet food. Or keep in the car as a likely defence weapon lah.
    Very high heat and used as if it was a smoking asian wok will certainly kill the non-stick coating. Use it VERY VERY carefully with controlled heat and not splashing immediately with cold water after use will ensure the pan or pot will last nearly forever.

    Being very curious about the possible health hazards, I did a Google search:

    Yes, it is better to discard the old pans.

    Hmmm.. me hardly need google to convince me. Its common sense to discard if faulty. Technology in manufacture have its purpose and limits.
    Sometimes I think its still a current mindset that people are reluctant or hesitant to discard something thats a potential hazard because it was something costly when newly purchased and it should last forever.

    Hi, just to let you know there is a Teflon recoating plant in Malaysia (http://www.techcoat.com.my) but they only cater to industrial customers and not for used home cookwares. In any case most home cookwares are not really suitable for recoat due to cost reason and others like the molded rubber handles which cannot be exposed to high heat during recoating process and rivets etc.

    You know what is probably safer than teflon or other artificial non-stick coatings?

    Use a cast-iron wok or pan. But it must be treated. Basically searing it after putting a coating of cooking oil on the cooking surface. After that do not wash off the seared oil layer. That serves as the non-stick layer. Of course, the type of oil is important - use palm oil, not the "skinny" unsaturated oils

    If you washed the pan after cooking, you have to make that oil layer again each time before putting the pan away.

    Do note that teflon is not suitable for our Asian stir-fry techniques of cooking. What our forefathers were doing with their cast-iron woks was probably the superior way of handling our cuisine.

    To come to think of it all, most of these EU designed flat base pots and pans are best used with flat hotplate or induction stove where the heating is even and heat transfer is most efficient. It'll also ensure the pot will not burn the sides like a gas flame does. A gas flame will naturally reach out beyond the diameter of the pot and my even lick the handle thus destroying it in the process. Most folks have a gas stove as its cheap, most economical and practical to our kind of cooking methods. Yes, those western designed pots and pans are not supposed to be used with the common domestic gas stoves. It just won't last a lifetime, even with being careful. Other reasons are obvious if you observe carefully and think. I think you all know lah, those Tefal brand kitchenware ain't cheap!..not to us Malaysians. One pan or pot can buy you many traditional iron woks.

    Fully agree with Chang. In fact, we stopped using teflon coated utensils some time ago, and switched to stainless steel. We even gave away our microwave oven and reverted to the good old oven, steaming etc.

    Hello blurrman, I read about your post about the National smart cooker NF-S40M that you have, I have the same cooker myself, got some minor scratches already but still in good condition.

    Do you still have the cookbook that comes with it? I lost mine when I moved out and I miss the asam fish recipe in the cookbook. I've been trying to search for it in shops for a long time, but as you know the National brand is not in production anymore.

    Ok blurrman I hope to hear from you soon, thank you and have a great weekend!

    Yup... they also cannot do chroming electroplating well. I had my VW Beetle engine chromed in Hatyai... yes, in Hatyai! Drove little beetle in and left it there for three weeks, they dismantle the entire engine, chrome it, and fix back everything. For only RM2,800 - where to find?
