Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free Top

25 Jun

Other reviews would suggest that the non-stick properties don’t last but at first it’s amazing. Even water doesn’t want to wet the surface. We fried turkey sausage and clean-up with a sponge and soapy water hardly seemed necessary. It’s nicely made and heavy with some classy looking machine work on the bottom. My only complaint is the deceptive advertising and packaging. The Amazon description says, “From Germany” and the box it comes in says “From Germany” no less than 7 times. So it’s German made, right? WRONG! Small print on the bottom of the box says “Made in China.” “From Germany” apparently applies to the coating material only. Still, it’s very well made, just as good or better than if it were truly a German product and likely at half the cost. How long will the non-stick properties last? Time will tell.
I bought this pan seeking a replacement for our aging traditional non-stick pan. I didn’t know much about the company, but the reviews seemed solid. I will add to the solid reviews. This pan is well constructed and works as advertised. It has a good heft, heats evenly, and holds its temperature well. The textured bottom does not impede the non-stick properties. I can’t say I notice a marked improvement over a smooth bottomed PTFE-free pan, but it doesn’t hurt.A note to those who find the non-stick properties disappearing in your pans. This happened with a previous PTFE-free pan I had used. If you look carefully and run your fingers (particularly around the bottom circumference) you will notice a sticky film. This seems to be a build up from excess oil not cleaned off well. By this point it will be extremely sticky and hard to clean off. With some serious elbow grease, I was able to clean this off. The pan is as good as new.

Utilizing GREBLON — a natural 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 non-stick cookware is achieved 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 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 derived from nature – not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan’s ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. The Green Earth Pan’s natural ceramic coating is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to cook with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality anodized aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of 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.
