Legend has it that stir-fried dishes in iron pots can supplement iron, so they can supplement blood. The truth is: Stir-frying with iron pot can actually slightly increase the iron content in vegetables, but it has little significance for blood tonifying and improving anemia.


It can supply iron, but the quantity is very limited.


When cooking in an iron pan, the iron on the wall of the pan rubs under the scrape of the shovel, which inevitably causes a drop of debris. When scraped iron meets the acid in food, it becomes iron ion, which can also be regarded as a source of iron.


To be honest, it is much more necessary to supplement iron and eat meat casually.


(2) This "iron" is hard to absorb and utilize.


Iron in iron pot is inorganic iron, which is difficult to be absorbed and utilized by human body, and the iron dissolved in stir-fried vegetables is very little.


If iron deficiency anemia really occurs, you can eat more red meat, such as pork, beef and mutton, etc., instead of "eating pot".


In short, although the iron content in food can be increased by stir-frying dishes in iron pan, this iron is really insignificant, and it is difficult for the body to absorb. It really has no effect on improving iron deficiency anemia.


Is it true that fried vegetables in iron pot are fragrant? In Xiaobian's opinion, compared with pots, cooks are more important if the food is well cooked.


The non-stick pan can be used, but only if you use it correctly.


For the handicapped, the non-stick pot is the kitchen savior! Easy cleaning and oil control are all due to a layer of coating on the inner surface of the pot.


But it is also this coating, so that we are always a little bit uneasy about non-stick pan.


Teflon is safe for normal use.


Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), also known as Teflon, is a common material for non-stick pot coating. Teflon coating is safe in the temperature range from room temperature to 260 C. Normally, the cooking temperature is only about 200 degrees Celsius. Even when fried, the oil temperature generally does not exceed 250 degrees Celsius.


So in normal cooking, there is no need to worry about what harmful substances the Teflon coating will release.


Processing aids are not harmful to health


Others are concerned about perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a processing aid in Teflon production. At present, no authoritative studies have confirmed that perfluorooctanoic acid has adverse effects on human health. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) have made it clear that consumers need not worry about Teflon and similar fluoropolymer products themselves.


Buy a regular brand of non-stick pot, use it well, pay attention to the temperature do not burn empty, non-stick pot is a good pot, rest assured and bold use.


There are two things to say! Are you still cooking with a metal spade? Are you still using steel ball to wash the pot?


Sincerely remind you:


No matter which kind of pot is used, it is not recommended to use metal shovel or steel ball to wash the pot.


Seriously speaking, rubbing something so sharp on it will directly damage the surface of the pot and shorten its service life.


Seriously speaking, can the soul-stirring sound of the steel wire ball rubbing on the surface of the pot really stand?


Be gentle. It is recommended to use wooden shovels, silica gel shovels and clean cotton cloth.


Don't burn it empty!


Five minutes in air, the temperature can reach 800 C. You try to cook for five minutes every day, so don't blame the pot for its poor quality.


In fact, in many cases, the reason why we feel that some items are not easy to use, there are reasons for improper use methods, but also have a certain psychological effect. What kind of pan to fry vegetables depends on personal preferences. Those who feel that they are fragrant with the pan will use the pan. Those who feel that they are easy to clean with the pan will not use the pan. As long as they are bought in regular shops and are certified by the state as a qualified sign, then these pans are safe and usable.
