Cooking in my home has become a lot more fun over the past few weeks! Ozeri sent me a Green Earth Pan and I love it! I love it for lots of reasons but one is that it has Greblon instead of Teflon!
Here's a little about Greblon you should know!
"Utilizing GREBLON -- an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world's first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional cookware and other ceramic cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'.
With the Green Earth Pan's GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature - not a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA, and far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is a breeze.
The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Earth Pan features a textured ceramic cooking surface. The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance. Your satisfaction is guaranteed"
Cooking with the Green Earth Pan has been a breeze. You really don't have to use that much oil to cook anything. I've tried all kinds of things in it and food just slides off and we have yet to have anything really stick to it. It cooks more evenly than any pan I have ever used. In the past it seems like all of my pans have cooked on the inner parts faster and the the outer pats not as well. I've had to rotate things as I flip them to get an even browning.
This picture shows the textured surface up close while cooking. They "bumps"aren't very high, just enough to really help distribute the heat more evenly.
One big test for me in seeing how well the pan browned evenly was to make grilled cheese. In the past I have had to not only flip the sandwich over, but also rotate it so the whole sandwich was evenly browned. SO I cooked two at the same time. Both of them cooked evenly and all I had to do was flip them over once. NO rotating!! You can see in the picture bellow hoe nice and even that browning is. My husband really likes that since he is not the best at flipping sandwiches. He said the less he has to move them, the better!
I highly recommend the Ozeri Green Earth Pan to you. It washes up really easily and fast. It even come with a little bonus, a nice felt cloth to help protect the non-stick surface from getting scratched by other pans sitting in it! Love that!!
You can buy the Ozeri Green Earth Pan HERE in 8", 10", and 12" sizes! Mine is the 10" and I plan on getting the other two I love them so much!! Plus they have a Wok pan that looks wonderful!
