I don't cook everyday with teflon pans :-)......I would, but I do not really have any I use anymore. BUT parts of a UDS can sometimes get hotter than your average teflon pan, and I read somewhere that PTFE (teflon) when heated hot enough to start to vaporize, is one of the most deadly things you can come up with easily. Using a weed burner to light charcoal is one example of how parts of a UDS can get pretty hot, and another way I know if first hand is if some guy blows in there with a small shop vac set to blow not suck ;-).
