My first impression of the 10″ Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri was that it’s a sturdy, stylish pan. Oh, and the color. The color is a lime green. It’s so neat and pops out against my other black and stainless steel pans. It’s a show stopper. The manufacture states “It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle”. Perfect!

The next thing I noticed was that the entire cooking surface of the pan is covered in hexagon type craters (that help distribute the heat underneath the food). This must be part of their secret to the great non sticking power of this pan.

The first thing I cooked in this pan was scrambled eggs. You know how with some pans when you’re cooking eggs you get a crusty egg layer on the sides? Not with this pan! The eggs cooked perfectly without sticking at all. I could even tell this pan would do amazing with omelets and my apple cinnamon pancakes would flip like a breeze. It has some true non sticking powers!

The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri  is made from Greblon which is a natural ceramic coating that is completely safe. Other typical non stick pans use products that contain PolyTetraFluoroEthylene and PerFluoroOctanoic Acid which can decompose during the cooking process. The fumes that can be let off can be lethal to small animals and harmful to humans and even is considered “a persistent pollutant of the environment” by the EPA.

I totally did not know this and will be thinking twice about using my other non stick pans. Did you know that other non stick pans are potentially dangerous before reading this?

  1. Looks good and thank you for telling me about it

    I didn’t realize that they were as unsafe as this. I stopped using non-stick pans last year because I thought that stainless steel would be safer. I wouldn’t mind trying this brand though.

    • I didn’t know this either before conducting the review. My only problem with my stainless is stuff seems to stick to them more since I’m not much of a chef. I guess I need to work on that

    There are so many good alternatives out there that now replace to older nonstick pans. I haven’t tried this yet but I will. We love the Scan pans that are super safe and have a great nonstick surface. The trick with stainless is make sure it’s ho before you add your food. Then let it cook and it will naturally release the food. It’s like magic. 🙂

  4. I’ve only tried one “green” nonstick pan, and I found it didn’t sautee nearly as well as the regular nonstick pans. I do find the thought of harmful effects from traditional nonstick cookware ware troubling, so I’ll keep an eye out for this pan the next time I need one.

    • I’m not much of a chef but I think this pan would do great sauteeing things. I will have to sautee something soon and let you know.
