Review: Green Earth Pan by Ozeri

ozerititle

I received this product from Business2Blogger, after applying for the campaign because I am very interested in converting to green cooking utensils. What’s most interesting to me is that this pan is 100% PTFE and PFOA free (check the links for info on what that means, I didn’t even know!). Basically, the chemicals that most companies use to make their nonstick pans release harmful carcinogens  into the environment and into our bodies. The Ozeri pan doesn’t have any of those chemicals!

About the Product

photo44Utilizing natural ceramic as a coating, 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. With the Green Earth Pan’s ecozeri technology, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature – not from a laboratory. In addition to being completely eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Pan’s natural ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise 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 die-cast 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 Bakelight handle.

My Review

I don’t know about you, but I can never seem to keep a nonstick pan in good condition. No matter how much I try, someone uses a metal spatula on it or scrubs it with a brillo pad. And those are the pans with all the bad chemicals in them, so hooray for the fact that they’re now floating through my body.

I got this pan and I was immediately excited by the huge handle. It’s actually even more reinforced than the one in the product photo. That’s super exciting, because the other thing I can’t seem to keep is a handle on all my pots and pans! Do the companies not put any extra thought into making these handles sturdy enough to last as long as the pan? Well, obviously Ozeri thought of that!

I admit, I’ve only used the pan once so far. With the Christmas holiday, I just have not had time to do any more testing just yet. But you better believe that I will. The one time that I did use it, I decided I was going to go all out and cook a batch of eggs straight away. No messing around with silly, non-messy foods. I made overeasy eggs just the way I normally would. Sprayed som Pam in the bottom of the pan, cracked two eggs, and let them sit. Then flip. At this point, my eggs almost always stick to the bottom of the pan or my spatula nicks the yolk and my “over easy” becomes scrambled. Not with the Green Earth Pan. I did not even need a spatula! The eggs were sliding all around the pn and I just did a quick flip (like stir-fry) to cook the other side of my eggs. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY EGGS CAME OUT PERFECTLY. And there wasn’t a bit of egg stuck to the pan. I’m sold. If all I ever use this pan for is eggs, I’ll love it forever. I just hope I can get the coating to last.

  • Likes: EVERYTHING! With the non-stick coating and no harsh chemicals being my favorite characteristics. 
  • Dislikes: As much as I love the long sturdy handle, it was a bit cumbersome on my smaller stove top. I had to find a new way to distribute the handles. I guess I just need to buy a bigger stove! 
  • Would I Purchase? Yes, and I’m considering buying the larger pan while they’re still on sale!! 

What do you think about the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri? Have you tried it yet? Love it or leave it?
