REVIEW: Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Ozeri is a specialty manufacturer of digital lifestyle products for the modern home. They originally supplied to the destination club market, which includes vacation residences across the globe. Ozeri relies on customer relations and word of mouth to spread their products, saving the consumer on the selling price.

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. 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. 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. GREBLON ceramic made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final assembly in China.

I instantly fell in love with this pan. Eco-friendly cooking gadgets that work are absolutely the best. I love the ceramic and lack of chemicals to make it nonstick. It's very sturdy and looks great. It's quite large so it can hold PLENTY at one time. I would use something else if I were pan frying anything, but for any food that doesn't require a good deal of oil, this is perfect. I put a little butter on it before I used it for the first time, but have not since. Fried or scrambled eggs slide out easily. Chicken doesn't stick, even initially.  Bacon crisped up perfectly (I drained the grease out between batches). Pancakes cooked fantastically. For some reason I only remembered to take pictures of breakfast food. But really, I've been using it for everything!

You can purchaser the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan right now on Amazon for $23.35 - $38.95 (depending on which size you choose)!! Great price for a pan of this quality.

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.
