Why is Iron Wok Healthier Than Teflon?

Iron frying may be considered old-fashioned less popular with Teflon pans. This ancient cooking tool is actually still reliable in a modern kitchen. Besides being better in delivering heat, an iron wok is more healthful.

Some reasons for the need to cook with a frying pan among others:

– Can cook using a little oil
The shiny iron signifies a good pan and is almost non-sticky. Bonus health benefits, no need to use a lot of oil for grilled chicken or frying fried potatoes when using an iron wok.

– Chemically free
Another benefit of using an iron wok is to avoid harmful chemicals found in Teflon pans. The coating used in a non-stick pan contains PFC (perfluorocarbons), chemicals that cause liver damage, cancer, developmental disorders, and according to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, can cause early menopause.
