can non-stick cookware used for cooking glutens be safe for gluten free cooking?
I had heard that once a nonstick pan had been used for cooking items with glutens, since its porous, it could never be used for gluten free cooking safely. Is this true?
Untrue. A non-stick pan (teflon, calphalon) is actually LESS porous than it's traditional counterparts. Think about what the bottom of a cast-iron skillet or aluminum saute pan looks like and compare that to the smooth surface of a non-stick pan. All metals are porous to some degree, so if you're that worried about cooking on a contaminated surface, do the Kosher thing and have a set of cookware set aside exclusively for gluten-free cooking. Personally though, I'd be more concerned about porous cutting boards, countertops and utensils (especially wooden utensils) than a properly cleaned pan. Just make sure to clean your cooking tools and surfaces with hot soapy water and you'll be just fine. Hope this helped.

Mostly most of the household has nonstick cookware. Is it really worth? If so what way.(please include energy saving )

Is it okay to use non-stick cookware that has been scratched?

Are there many other people interested in food that is both non-dairy and gluten-free? It seems...there are a growing number of options for one or the other but not many for both.
