When it comes to cooking for my family, I always try to make good decisions on choosing healthy foods, but I never really considered the pots and pans that I used to make each of our meals. I was so surprised to find out that there are chemicals, toxins and even extremely hazardous materials which could be in the food you eat each day! Very scary!!
So, what should you do? First, I suggest taking some deep breaths, and do your research. Take the time to find out more about the types of pots and pans you use…it will take a few moments of your time, and that panic attack I may have just caused you to have, will feel a little bit better. And in the meantime, consider purchasing an Ozeri 3 piece pan set.
For the past month, my family and I have had the pleasure of working with this great set of pans which is unlike any other ceramic pans you have ever heard of. Unlike it competitors, this innovative textured pan surface delivers enhanced heat distribution and superior non-stick performance without ever releasing harmful fumes or toxins. And the best part… is that Ozeri’s pans are 100% scratch-resistant and extremely easy to clean. The magic ingredient about the Ozeri Green Pan is that it utilizes something called greblon ~ an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene ) and PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid) free. In fact, it is the world’s first frying pan to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining chemical free.
So why are those chemicals bad?? Well, 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 often manufactured with the aid of PFOA, which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. This really makes you question ALL of the products that you have in your home, doesn’t it? I can’t tell you how relieved I am to share that when you use the Green Earth Pan's greblon ceramic, even under high temperatures, NO harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because each pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature - not a laboratory.
In addition to being completely free of PTFE and PFOA, each pan is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. The set, which includes an 8,10, and 12 inch pan creates a textured cooking surface which allows air pockets to distribute heat underneath food to enhance its cooking performance. And since it has better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is such a breeze. Each Green Earth Pan is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots. Each pan boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle.
