I don't cook. The most I can make is grilled cheese, spaghetti, and a few other easy items. However I am coming to the point in my life where I am thinking about moving out and I will need to learn how to cook. Not only do I need to learn how to cook, I need to start buying supplies to use when I cook.
That is why I was so excited to get the chance to review the Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan! This pan has a non-stick coating that is actually very safe to cook on. It is PTFE free and PFOA free. The pan has a surface that looks a bit like a honey comb. This unique surface allows the air and heat to be distributed evenly amongst the pan to help cook evenly! (This is great for making my grilled cheese!)
In addition to those features it has a heat-resistant handle, and is easy to clean. There are tons of interesting features about this pan! Now since I don't really cook much I utilized my boyfriend for this review. He stayed over one day and in the morning he made me eggs and bacon. I asked him to use this frying pan so that I could review it and he laughed but said okay.
He was teaching me how to make a certain kind of egg. (I don't even know what he called it- oops!)
Anyways, he thought the pan was great! The handle stayed nice and cool which is always helpful when cooking something on top of a stove. He also said he thought the bottom of the pan (the honey comb pattern) was cool and he could see that it really did help distribute the heat. Overall he loved cooking with the pan and I know I will love learning how to cook with the pan!
It comes in three different sizes: 8 inch, 10 inch, and 12 inch. There are different prices for each size but I do believe the price is fair for the product. I really loved it and would consider buying the bigger pan for my future apartment and self. However I am going to wait until I actually have an apartment and until I can actually cook!
Here is some information from the company:
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. GREBLON ceramic made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final assembly in China.
