    From a reader: resurfacing a teflon appliance

    She writes: 
    I have an Express Redi-Set-Go electrical kitchen cooker
    with an interior teflon coating. The coating is flaking
    and chipping off. I was told by manufacturer to take it
    to be recoated. Where do I go to get this done or is
    there a spray (where would I buy it?) that I could apply
    myself? Can this really be coated for safe cooking?

     I found instructions on Ehow.  I don't think I would trust it for my family.

    As nice as teflon is to cook with, once its starts flaking it becomes dangerous. Cooking utensils have certain codes that the manufacturer has to adhere to. That can't be said about the spray they are telling you to use. Invest in a new appliance.

    I seriously considered buying the "Redi Set  Go" cooker. It seemed like the answer to  a "cooking for two" delema. I decided to invesigate reviews on this cooker. I was amazed at all the negative complaints I read from buyers, mostly the non-stick coating coming off the baking pans. Others complained about the platic lid melting round the "set it and forget it" timer, on top of the unit, rendering it useless. After reading so many negative reviews I decided not to buy the unit, but to keep my money in my pocket. I don't want to pay money for a bad experience and aggravation.

    How do these shady companies get away with selling such inferior products? They aren't cheap!

    I didn't buy that same appliance either because I'd read the reviews.

    I don't have a microwave oven because I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. Besides, I have a top of the line stove and lots of baking pans plus 2 different double boilers. I also own 3 sizes of slow cookers and a steamer/wok plus a steamer/rice cooker and 2 GFs. Mom got me so many things prior to her stroke !

    teflon uuuhhh no I wouldn't do it if its a fridge you can get it refinish but it all has to get it sanded down a primer of sorts that does that type of job and a different type of coating well like I said no I think I get someone else to do it I won't trust it.
