I was boiling some eggs and I left them on the stove for about 1 hour. The pan was full and starting to boil at the start of the time, and when I got down and realised it was totally empty. The gas was on full heat, and since it's gas it does get really quite hot. The house now smells of burnt non-stick pan 3hrs later and I'm a bit worried after reading some things on the internet. I don't think I inhaled a huge amount of the gas but I suppose I wasn't paying much attention. I don't think the brand was Teflon, but would it still have been using the same material? And basically, should I be worried, or is most of the internet stuff mostly scaremongering? Is what I've done really super dangerous? I don't think I'll be buying non-stick again.
Hope this isn't too off-topic!
