I love to cook and I am always looking for new products to use in the kitchen. When Moderna Housewares, a distributor of Ozeri products.asked me if I wanted to review their Ozeri 8"Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, that is 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free, I said "of course!" I love that the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan is 100% PTFE and PFOA free( no heavy or unsafe metals and chemicals.)
Quoted from Ozeri:
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'
I also love that this pan is nonstick and has a cool raised surface that enhances cooking performance. The green color of the pan is unique and bright so It brightens my day to use it. The construction of the pan is awesome and the handle has a heat resistant silicone coated handle, so it stays cool while cooking.The Green Earth Pan's natural ceramic coating is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces.
I decided to use the Ozeri 8" Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan to toast sunflower seeds, that I needed for a recipe. I was very pleased with the results as the sunflower seeds toasted and did not burn, like last time I tried using a different pan.
Here is a cool video showing the nonstick features of the pan:
