Default T-fal pans peeling...

I bought my mom a set of T-Fal pans in May for mothers day...

I was over there the other week and noticed the coating of the pan is all peeling...Apparently it started right after I got the pans for her but she nor my SIL said anything.

I got them at JCP..on my credit card. Don't have the box that they came in though...what do you think the chances are of them exchanging or returning them?

It's a long shot, but I thought I'd get your opinion.

I'm sure that JCP will take them back. That can be a dangerous thing for the coating to peel. I would get them from your DM as soon as you can. You don't won't her cooking on those peeling pots and pans.

Doesn't surprise me at all. Years ago, when it was the BIG line on QVC I tried it. Within a few months it was peeling, and I never use high heat with non-stick.

Call JCP's customer service number and ask, but after 8 months, you may not have any recourse. Hopefully they'll step up.

Just make sure your mother isn't still using the pans. It isn't safe to ingest that non-stick coating.

I had T-Fal pans for years still have a small sauce pan. I don't know, maybe email the co. and see what they say? Sorry that's all I got.

I would email the company directly...skip jcp....it is not their fault.

I always email the company, and usually get satisfaction.

That's odd. There must be something wrong with them. I have some that are about 10 years old and they're still doing good.

Teflon or similar coatings are dangerous/deadly for pet birds. As far as that goes, so are common chemical house cleaners and air fresheners.

As for the peeling pan being dangerous?-- I remember radio show host Dr Dean Edell saying he didn't think so, because if the coating is non-stick, how could it do any damage if ingested...you would most likely just pass it.

Contact the manf - most pans have a warranty.

I will try both, JCP & tfal.com

I know my MIL likes her t-fal pans. Maybe the ones I bought my mom were part of their cheaper line. I know I tried finding ones that were light in weight because my mom has arthritis and heavier ones would be hard for her to lift...

I happened to go buy Burlington yesterday and noticed a Circulon 2 set for like $70. I was thinking maybe I'd pick those up for her to use instead of the peeling ones...

Good idea. No peeling with circulon.
