Sustainable Danish Non-Stick Cookware
Here’s the truth -
sustainability is complicated.
Let’s go beyond the surface.
We embrace transparency
Tired of seeing greenwashing and misinformation everywhere you go? So are we. Vague claims about being “green” are easy to throw around, but the reality of sustainable production is complicated. We have always relied on letting the quality of our Danish made cookware speak for itself, but it’s time to give you an inside look at the complex decision making involved in creating truly sustainable products. We’ll show you what we’re doing well, what we’re working on improving, and why we make the choices we do.
Sustainability has been our commitment since 1956. Our non-stick products are made in Denmark under extremely strict environmental standards. Since the first day we started making cookware we have made choices to minimize our carbon footprint, including striving to build durable, long-lasting cookware that doesn't end up in a landfill in only a few years. We are proud of our continued efforts and will always seek to make the best choice for our consumers and our environment in all we do.

Got Questions? We've got Answers
Are PFAS used in Scanpan's nonstick products?
Yes, and here’s why. Scanpan's nonstick products contain PTFE which is included in the large group of PFAS substances. In cookware, these substances lend durability and superior nonstick properties and are completely bound in the hardened coating, so they will not transfer to food or the environment during use. Our STRATANIUM nonstick is the most sustainable choice because it is more durable and longer lasting than non-PTFE based nonstick options. Our cookware is safe and backed with a lifetime warranty.
If my non-stick is damaged, can I still use it?
If your pan has pits, holes, or peeling, you should stop using it and contact us for a warranty replacement.
If your pan has burned, carbonized build up from food and oil residues, we recommend replacing your pan. To avoid this buildup in the future, always make sure to clean your pan thoroughly after each use.
If I overheat my fry pan, is it dangerous to use?
Long before you reach a temperature high enough to damage the surface, your food will start to burn. You cannot overheat your frying pan during normal cooking. Always start preheating your pan on medium heat for best cooking results.
Has Scanpan considered making a nonstick without PFAS?
Scanpan has always been best in class in nonstick innovation and will continue to explore the best technology available for our products. We are and will continue to be in compliance with government regulations around the world in all aspects of our production.
