Earlier this week, I brought home a ministove from one of the sponsors of the event that we’ve attended. When we got home, my mom asked me where did I get the teflon? She was pointing at the teflon hose connected to the ministove. When my mom saw me smiling (because I though she was making things up), she immediately explained what is a teflon.
She said that Teflon is the trade name for PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), a polymer consisting of carbon and fluorine. One common household use for Teflon or PTFE is cooking. Many kitchen supply brands market their Teflon pots, pans, and utensils. These products are safe and make cooking a lot easier.
Now, I learned something new from our small talk. I really love my mom =)
