I received the Ozeri Green Earth Pan in the 8″ size for review, and let me tell you I was VERY excited. I had been eying this pan for quite some time and was ecstatic to receive this opportunity. It is made with a Greblon ceramic coating which contains NO harmful heavy metals or chemicals, and if you know me, you know that this is a serious selling point. The pan is non scratch, it’s eco friendly and emits no harmful fumes! I was totally sold right there, but then as you will notice, IT IS GREEN. Like in color…oh my gosh! My kitchen is a crazy hodge podge of bright crazy colors and this goes along PERFECTLY. I have used this pan several times so far and I can tell you it lives up to it’s non-stick promise…literally NO sticking! I think it was one of the best experiences I have had browning my hamburger like…ever! ( I typically use these pans for browning meats and stir fry ) Even in my stir fry the noodles didn’t stick at all! I have seen a few reviews on Amazon ( just like one or two ) stating that they felt that these pans weren’t non stick, and I am honestly not sure what they are talking about…I usually do not call anyone down for having a different opinion or experience than myself, however, I simply cannot imagine having a negative experience with these pans! I am very very pleased and hope to add the other sizes to my collection very very soon! I recommend these pans very highly, especially if you are concerned with the toxins in the “normal” run of the mill pans, or you are someone just looking for a great colorful non-stick pan! I think these would make the perfect Christmas, Wedding, House Warming, or just because present for anyone in your life! I know I would have loved to receive one, and I now have a great idea for all of those hard to shop for family members!

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.
