So today I have a review for all of you on a really cool pan (married life and the things that get you excited right?!). So this is the Ozeri Green Earth Pan and I know it looks like your typical non-stick pan – but it’s not – and that’s why I like it. So I cook with the stainless steel pans or cast iron (I have a special thing I have to use to protect my stove top when I use cast iron).
The problem I *Always* have is that the food will often times stick to the pan – making clean up a bit of a project at times (or if I’m desperately trying to cook eggs I break them – never fails). Then I was given the opportunity to try out this pan from Ozeri (I already LOVE their tower fan I have). So – the big thing with this pan is that it’s a non stick pan but it is also much safer to cook with than your typical non-stick pans. Now I’m pulling this next piece directly from the Amazon product description – because honestly – It’s very ‘science-y’ and I’m not positive I could explain it any better than the description did:
“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.”
So what differentiates the Green Earth Pan from other non-stick pan’s is the Greblon ceramic that it is coated in. This Greblon ceramic doesn’t start to decompose and release fumes at a certain temperature and doesn’t contain PTFE at all!
I’ve been using it for just under a month now and I absolutely love it! There is a textured bottom – which I wasn’t to sure about because I figured it would make the food stick to it – but that was not the case at all. Just be sure to clean it properly (duh!) and you’re all good!
