Ozeri Green Earth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan ~ A Review

Ozeri Green Earth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan

  A Review

For those of you that know me ...  that know me well, know I can cook and cook well.. when I'm inclined too. Baking things that are going to expand your waist line is more of my strong point.

 But I am one of the lucky ones in life...
 I married a firefighter

Besides being all hunky and good looking {check}, a home town hero {double check}, the one other thing that they {fire fighters} are known for is being able to COOK and cook well I might add {triple check!!}! My ah-mazing hubby is no slacker when it comes to knowing his way around the kitchen ( a sponge and soapy water to clean it maybe a little out of his realm) he is good, talented, amazing, astonishing in the kitchen.
He is someone that can smell two different spices and know right away if they are going to taste good or great together, he never measures anything and yet everything always comes out tasting great. Okay well almost everything... except for that time he got the great idea to mix in strawberry extract in to the corn bread mix.... it was just... odd.

 With all the cooking that does go on in our house trying out a pan was one of the most perfect products for us to test and try.
 We had the honor of trying out the Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan. This is the first pan that I have ever gotten besides my cast iron that came with full instructions on how to season and care for it.  We even followed the instructions on how to season it and care for it {which not hard at all}! The pan it's self  has a slight texture to the bottom inside and is a pretty green on the outside. And nothing while cooking with it stuck to it  which was great! We were even able to cut out the butter and oil from our cooking because nothing stuck to the inside of the pan, not even our morning eggs. 

This pan is well constructed and has a good weight to it. I only used plastic utensils with it so not to damage the non-stick surface. It heats up evenly and holds the heat in well, which makes it cook your food more evenly.  

The handle is put on securely with no wiggle { I hate it when the handles wiggle}. And is made out of silicone so you don't have to worry about it heating up and burning you {yay!}. 

And when it comes to the non-stick surface there is no weird taste to your food after cooking in it, like some pans tend to leave. 

This pan is also 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free which makes it safer to use and eat off of.

Here is what the company has to say about it:

  • Unlike other ceramic cookware brands, the Ozeri pan utilizes an ultra-safe ceramic coating derived from nature which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free.
  • Delivers unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures.
  • 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.
And so far everything that I have seen is spot on with the above description.

 While doing my research on this pan { I always research every product before my review} I saw this under the product description:

 " Utilizing natural ceramic as a coating, 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 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 ecozeri technology, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri 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. In addition to being completely eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Pan's natural ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise 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 die-cast 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 Bakelight handle. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. "

I love that this pan is so much safer for all of us to eat the food cooked on it, that I don't have to worry about horrible harmful' things' I can't even pronounce leeching off into our food or environment.
And see that last line.....

Your satisfaction is guaranteed
One of the best things... that they totally stand behind their products and if you have any problems they will work with you to fix what ever might be wrong. How awesome is that? A pan And customer service?!
