When I first got married if someone were to ask me my opinion about cookware I probably would have confused them with an alien. Why would I care about cookware? I used whatever was least expensive or was handed down to me. Over the last 15 years (yes I have been married quite a few years more than that) I have created a kitchen with appliances that I love! Of course I need a new kitchen but that is another story.
I am always looking for heavy duty products that can hold up to a great deal of use. My husband loves to cook, my mother in law loves to cook (lives with us) and my 8 year old daughter is now fighting for her independence with the kitchen and appliances/equipment.
Ozeri Green Earth Pans are excellent quality and have a durable coating called Greblon (developed in Germany). Ozeri Green Earth Pans are among the first to utilize this technology to achieve nonstick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA, and other harmful chemicals.
Have you read about all the harmful issues with traditional teflon? Let me fill you in. Once I read about it I stopped using any traditional teflon pans in our home. 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’.
The Green Earth Pans are not harmful in any way even under very high temperatures. This coating comes from nature – not from a laboratory and is resistant to scratching. As a result of this excellent durability I don’t need to use much oil at all when cooking. The natural properties of the pan act as the best non stick surface even without alot of additional cooking agents. Cleanup is easy with this pan – definitely no scrubbing needed and the anodized aluminum allows for more even cooking with each meal. This pan also has the magnetized bottom for rapid induction stoves and a heat resistant silicone handle. And lastly – the textured surface allows air to distribute evenly enhancing cooking performance.
What was my first experience with this awesome pan? Of course one of my famous quesadillas! I love this pan – it does everything they claim it should do. I love the pure construction of it – it is nice and solid and well constructed. I fell in love with it before I even used it and could hardly wait to try it out. I give this pan a definite 5 out of 5 stars and will be purchasing more sizes to make a set!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
