Isn't it Time You Invested in a Non-Toxic, Non-Stick Pan? Ozeri Green Earth Review

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

Hubby Doo loves to cook on his days off.  Last year, we got a nice cast iron pan for Father's Day and that's his kitchen 'baby'.  He's been wanting a new frying pan for a long time now and I've been wanting 'greener' cookware, so I knew the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick frying pan was perfect for this year's Father's Day gift!

First, let's check out the features:
Utilizing GREBLON — a natural 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 non-stick cookware is achieved 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 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 derived from nature – not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan’s ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. The Green Earth Pan’s natural ceramic coating is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to cook 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 anodized 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 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.

So, basically:

  • Unlike other ceramic cookware brands, each Ozeri pan utilizes GREBLON ceramic – an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free (no heavy metals or chemicals).
  • Innovative textured pan surface delivers unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures.
  • Scratch-resistant 100 percent ceramic coating that is super easy to clean.
  • Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.
  • Each pan boasts a comfortable heat resistant silicon coated handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.
  • The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance.

I'm pretty sure I set the standard for Father's Day gifts with this bad boy.  I've given Hubs plenty of gifts over the years with many yays!, thank yous, and excitement.  With the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Non Stick Pan though, hubs was left without words while he excitedly read the box, tore it open, and immediately started pillaging the pantry for something that needed to be cooked right that very second.

The texture is what got our attention first.  It's really neat!  Out of habit we still add light oils occasionally, but we've noticed we've been using oil less and less the more we cook.  Food is being cooked beautifully and evenly, and its almost to the point of annoyance how insistent hubs is about this pan always being clean and available.  Almost.  This pan is so easy to clean that I can use my fingers under water and everything will glide right off.....burgers, caked on chili and hotdogs, pancakes....anything.  

I've been making a lot of changes for our household to be a 'greener', less toxic environment for our family ever since we first got married.  Cloth diapers, herb and 'grow your own' gardens, natural lighting, non-GMO, and organic cleaners later...we've stumbled upon the holy grail for 'green and clean' eating.  It blows our other pans out of the water while being twice as lightweight, keeping its 'cool' to ensure comfortable handling, and Mother Earth as its sidekick.  We love this pan!  Best of both worlds: daddy loves how well it cooks, mommy loves how toxin-free it is :)   


BUY IT: You can purchase the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Non Stick Frying Pan on Amazon for $38.95 + $8.50 shipping.  Its normally $80, so this limited sale is a steal! 
It makes a fantastic Father's Day gift for the chef in your family :)
