Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan {Review}

Did you know I’m a bird lover?  And does that make me homely?  I really love having parakeets as pets because of their beautiful colors, friendly demeanor, and low-maintenance care.  When we were first looking into getting a bird, I read a lot about how to care for them, and time and time again I read about how it is very important to not keep your bird in the kitchen because of chemicals that can be emitted from cooking spray and especially from non-stick pans.  Weird?  I had no idea that pans could give off harmful fumes that can be detrimental to humans and deathly for birds.  Since then, I’ve been interested in eco-friendly pans that are still easy to care for and affordable.

I was very honored to be able to review the 10″ Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, especially because it is just what I had in mind as far as something green and budget-friendly.  It is 100% PTFE and PFOA free, and made in Germany.

Read along with me: this pan has a ceramic coating instead of harmful heavy metal.  I think this pan has all the superior qualities of a pan of substantial weight, without being terribly heavy.  The beautiful green is scratch-resistant ceramic, and a friendly reminder that what I’m using is not going to harm me or my family.  It has a terrifically comfortable silicone handle and it can be induction stove safe.  I also think 10″ is just the perfect size for so many cooking needs.  It can hold just the right amount of food to feed a small family.

Now let me tell you about this textured surface.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen and certainly never owned a pan with an elevated texture like this, so I was interested to see what kind of a difference it makes.  It actually creates air pockets underneath the food that allows air and heat to better surround the food and create an even distribution of heat.  The food cooks faster and more evenly, all without sticking or burning.  The food is unable to bond to the pan, which would only cause food to stick and melt on.  This also makes the pan easy to clean!  I rinsed this once under the sink and practically everything washed away.  I still ran it through the dishwasher (which can be done, though hand washing is preferred), and it came out as squeaky clean as fresh out of the box.

The textured surface was also GREAT for cooking meat because it held the food up near the top of the pan while I scooped out the grease without the meat crumbles toppling down.  Very useful!  Look at that beautiful browning!  Everything looks cooked to the perfect degree without hot spots or pieces left undone.  I think I just found my favorite pan in the kitchen!

You can purchase your own 10″ Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan on Amazon HERE for $33.26.  This pan is also available in a 12-inch and 8-inch size.

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    we’ve been thinking about trying an eco friendly line of pots and pans so that we can cook veggies without oil. Do you think they’d stick to this?

    • I think these are great! No, food hasn’t been sticking at all in the few days I’ve been using it (also without oil). I’ll keep it out and let you know if it keeps up the good work 🙂
