Teflon is a material often used as a non-stick coating on cookware. Occasionally, Teflon can develop scrapes and scratches as a result of interaction with other utensils, which reduces its non-stick properties. Instead of cooking with damaged Teflon or replacing the scratched item, you can repair the Teflon yourself with just a few items and save some money as a result.

  1. 1

    Wash the Teflon item thoroughly using a sponge, warm water, and a mild dish detergent. Rinse the item well and allow it to dry completely.

  2. 2

    Spray cookware repair spray on the damaged area by holding the spray a foot away from the Teflon and applying an even amount, until the scratches are covered.

  3. 3

    Allow the freshly sprayed Teflon item sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Turn on your oven to 260 degrees Celsius to preheat as the Teflon sits.

  4. 4

    Insert the Teflon item into the centre rack of the oven. Allow the item to sit for 45 minutes.

  5. 5

    Put on a pair of oven gloves and remove the item from the oven. Turn off the oven and allow the Teflon to sit until it has completely cooled.

  6. 6

    Wash the Teflon in the same manner that was done in the first step. Inspect the item to ensure that the damage has been repaired.
