My 3 month old flat grill shows evidence of Teflon coating flaking off the top and bottom surfaces. What can I do to repair these surfaces?

There is nothing that you can do to replace the coating when it starts to come off. Not real nice to think about eating it either. You can remove it all with a wire brush or you can toss the item in the trash and replace it.

Viking griddle flaking

I have the same thing happening with my Viking griddle. I have nearly the whole top seasoned to a jet-black state - and it is stick free!! Now up near the front edge the coating/seasoning is chipping off. I've just been taking the loose chips off and not worrying about it too much, it maybe the size of a half dollar at this point. The front edge of the griddle is the hot spot on mine; and I've learned to adapt my cooking techniques. My guess is the hot spot on my griddle is responsible for the flaking...

How to clean rust off the plates of my grill

You will need either a grill brick or a sturdy metal brush. Brush off the flaking rust . There may still be some rusty discoloration but the FLAKY stuff is what you want to remove. Then you need to "season" the grill.
Do this by pouring a small amount of vegetable (corn, safflower, canola, etc) oil on a paper towel and wipe the grill with that. Make sure you hit ALL surface areas. Then turn the grill on and let it run until the grill ssurface turns black...there will be a LOT of smoke. Once the grill is black, turn off the heat, your grill is seasoned and you're done. I season my indoor grills after each use. This will prevent further rust.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

My large foreman is losing it's coating and i'm worried about using it.

Sandra, according to Dupont, the developer of if the teflon coating, if coating is damaged and/or flaking on any pot, pan or appliance, it's best not to continue using it.

Hope this answered your question.

Interior surface of big green egg is flaking off. what cause and what fix. thanks

hello. Eventually the heat and moisture take a toll. Remove all of the flaking with a wire brush then prime and paint it with the special high temperature grill primer and paint now plentiful at home depot, lowes, and many hardware stores. Enjoy your grilling.

Can nonstick surface be replaced, how and what

I wouldn't suggest spray on Teflon - even if it can withstand high temperatures, in prolonged use the Teflon Spray you can buy isn't really supposed to be used for food prep. If the grill still works okay then keep the grill; prices of George Foreman grills have fallen due to Russell Hobbs who have brought out larger grills for the same cost.

Non sick finish coming off

I posted a comment on a solution?? but want to e-mail you too. Line the pan with heavy duty aluminum foil before frying food. It's better than having teflon flakes on your meat.

Seasoning the bread pan in my Bread machine

Teflon is a coating. Seasoning is not the term for your problem. It needs a new pan. Or get it recoated. Good luck.

Teflon finish is bubbling

unfortunately this is a common problem among these grills, your only option is to replace it unless you have an extended warranty... if you want to keep using it, you can use a scotchbrite or similar metal pad to get rid of most of the teflon coating. if you want to replace it because you love electric grilling and don't much like teflon flakes in your food, i would recommend that your next grill have stainless steel or cast iron grilling surfaces..

hope this helps,
