I received a free product to facilitate this review. My opinion and experience is honest and my own and not influenced by the product compensation.
A couple of years ago I quit using non-stick cookware when I learned of the health concerns that were linked with PFOA which is a chemical that is used in the coating of cookware to make it non-stick. Since then, many companies have developed new non-stick cookware that is free of PFOA. One such company is Ozeri, which offered to send me one of their Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pans to try out and review. According to Ozeri, “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.”
Here are some of the features of the Ozeri Green Earth Nonstick Frying Pan:
* Features a scratch-resistant 100 percent ceramic coating as found in nature (no heavy metals or chemicals) that is super easy to clean.
* Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.
* Boasts a comfortable heat resistant Bakelight handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.
* Available in sizes 8″, 10″ and 12″.
* Allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used.
Upon receiving this product I cleaned it with a soft sponge and preconditioned it with a little oil on the inside before using, as suggested. The first thing I prepared in this frying pan was an egg and it came out beautifully. I did not even use butter, oil, or cooking spray and the egg slid right out! Needless to say I was impressed!
Since then I have used this pan for many other things from grilled cheese sandwiches to chicken, pork tenderloin, and pancakes and everything I have prepared has cooked evenly and did not stick to the pan at all.
To clean this pan I handwash it as I don’t want to put it in the dishwasher since that can often damage your cookware. Since food does not stick to the pan it is a breeze to clean.
Thus far I have been impressed with the Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Frying Pan. I admit I had not heard of the Ozeri brand before being contacted to try their product but it is definitely a product I will be looking at when I purchase new cookware in the future.
Speaking of purchasing new cookware…this product can be purchased through Amazon. At this time the product is Prime Eligible which is something I look for when purchasing through Amazon. As a Prime member I love the free 2 day shipping of Prime Eligible products!
