I love pans. The stove-top hero that is the least spoken of and probably most commonly used. This said, however, it does seem to be increasingly difficult to find the perfect pan. I mean, one that is non-stick, easy to clean, not to heavy, chemical free, oven safe AND cooks any kind of food beautifully. If you want all of these things in a frying pan then look no further folks, than the Green Earth pan by Ozeri!
I have cooked many things on it such as tofu steaks, fried zucchini, my falafel burgers, (pictured), stir-fry and store-bought vegan sausages. I’ve even used it as a beautiful serving dish for pasta! The first thing to notice is the surface; the natural ceramic coating is non-stick (NOTHING sticks to this pan, even with no oil) and totally free of PTFE and PFOA (nasty chemicals). It’s great to know that you can cook safely with this pan without any dangerous chemicals finding their way into your food.
Another great feature is the handle, it’s sturdy and is like an extension of the base which is great because many of my other pans have lost their handles quite easily! It’s also oven-proof so after browning these burgers, I could throw them in the oven to let them cook further without having to transfer to a baking dish.
My food is always cooked through really well and the surface stays hot for a long time after you turn the heat off, similar to a cast iron skillet, so it’s great for keeping food warm whilst preparing other things. The green colour looks great also as I hang it up on display 🙂
All in all, a highly recommended product!
