It was (unfortunately, not such) a pleasure to burn

I left a non-stick pot on the stove with the burner on overnight -- is it safe to cook in it?
The pot comes from this cookware set

. After a thorough cleaning, base of the pot looks more or less the same, but doesn't quite feel as nonstick on the bottom. I know some nonstick coatings are thought to potentially be cancerous or poisonous after heat exposure. Am I wrong to worry, or is it simply time to get a new pot?
Bonus Question: Is there any way to tell how nonstick it still is without, well, having something stick?
