I recently got to try a pan from Ozeri called the Green Earth Pan! This frying pan is different in that the bottom inside of the pan is textured and is still a nonstick surface!
Here are some awesome details:
As you can see, this is really a great little pan. Now, if 8" is a little too small for you, don't worry, they have it in a 10" and a 12" pan also. I liked the 8" pan because with just 2 people to cook for, we really don't need a bigger pan. Well, unless I have to cook for the holidays or for company, then, yes, a bigger one would be awesome to have.
Oh, and just so you know, I have a ceramic stove top and this pan is perfect for that kind of stove. I was worried that it might scratch my surface but it didn't even phase my stovetop. It is induction stove safe, completely eco-friendly because the ceramic coating does not emit any harmful fumes. Thank goodness for that! I have enough health issues without having to worry about that!
The elevated texture creates air pockets which help distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking. Can you see the texture in the photo above? I tried to get as close as I could without making the picture blurry. The patterned cooking surface helps prevent your food from bonding which aids the superior non stick surface and makes cleaning your pan easier.
What is Greblon?
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.You will love this technology that they have created as it makes cooking and frying so much easier and faster for me, anyway. 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. I love the way it sautéed my mushrooms when Mike had grilled some steaks one night and then we love mushrooms on top of our steaks and this 8" Green Earth Pan performed wonderfully when I lightly browned the mushrooms and onions.
There is also a video you can watch on Amazon and I tried to find a way to copy the video and bring it over here so you could see how it performs, but I don't think there is a way so when you follow the Amazon link to the 8" pan, to the left of the screen is a picture that says video. Just click on that and watch what this pan can do!
You will love some of their other products just as much as you do the cookware. I haven't tried them all, but they sure do look more than capable of handling even the toughest and roughest households. You can get products for the Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry, Home and Health & Fitness. Check them out sometime when you have the chance.
