I was asked by Ozeri to review the Green Earth Pan. I was thrilled to do this. I had recently discovered the chemicals regular pans omit into your food while cooking that are unhealthy for you. Whats special about the Ozeri pan is that it utilizes natural ceramic coating. It helps it to remain free of PTFE,PFOA and other harmful chemicals you do NOT want in your foods. PTFE stands for PolyTeraFluoroEthylene which is a pollutant releasing harmful chemicals at high temperatures. PFOA stands for PerFluoroOctanic Acid which is known as a pollutant to the environment.
Here are some reasons I now adore this pan!
Ozeri recommends not to cook in the pan in temps above 356 to maintain the coating. Prolong high heat will bring over time to breaking down of the pans coating. So make it last a very long time and avoid unnecessary high heats and remember it's designed to be an induction cooker so you can use less heat anyways to cook your food. You should also wash with hot soapy water and not wash in the dishwasher due to some aggressive alkalines.
I am simply in love with this pan! I am awarding the Ozeri my Homemaker-Mom Seal Of Approval!
