This is a really cute little frying pan from Ozeri (diameter 20 cm or 8″) which is ideal for solo portions. It is, as the name suggests, green, but it has some impressive “eco-credentials”.
The pan’s coating is Greblon – which is an ultra safe, 100% PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non-stick coating from Germany. PTFE is PolyTetraFluoroEthylene which is known to release toxic chemicals at high temperatures. PFOA is PerFluoroOctanoic Acid, known to pollute the environment.
Easy to care for, provided you take care to season the pan with a little oil before first use, and oven safe (including the handle, but use oven gloves!) to 180 degrees C, we found that the pan heats up quickly and requires less oil than traditional frying pans. It is, however, non stick so metal cooking utensils should be avoided.
Because the Green Earth pan heats up quicker, food cooking times are faster and less heat is used – so more economical and effective – plus environmentally friendly.
It’s advisable to wash the pan in hot soapy water and to dry with a soft cloth, rather than put it in a dishwasher. You can use a dishwasher but over time you may find harsh alkaline detergents affect the pan.
Stir fry for one
The Ozeri Green Earth 20 cm Frying Pan is just one item in a range of kitchen equipment with the unique Greblon coating. (The frying pans are also available in 26 cm and 30 cm diameters). It is available at www.amazon.co.uk at £24.95.
We will be looking for the Greblon coating when we come to replace our other pots and pans. It’s amazing just how many chemicals we end up ingesting without realising it, isn’t it?!
