Is anodized cookware the same as teflon?

Answer

Anodized cookware can be prepared with a Teflon coating, but does not always have a coating of any kind. Teflon is a specific type of non-stick coating, manufactured by DuPont. Hard anodized cookware is a way of treating aluminum that makes it twice as hard as steel, and keeps it from leaching into foods. Non-stick hard-anodized cookware can have a Teflon coating, but many brands do not.

Anodized cookware is not the same as Teflon. Teflon is a type of non-stick surface that is added to the pan. Anodizing is a process that increases the lifespan of the pan by adding to the oxide layer on the surface of that pan. You can find more information at en.wikipedia.org
