Utilizing natural ceramic as a coating, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world's first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. 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'. With the Green Earth Pan's ecozeriTM technology, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature - not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. In addition to being completely eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Pan's natural ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri allows you to cook with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality anodized aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant Bakelight handle. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.This is a heavy duty pan with a heat resistant handle and it's safe to use on induction stoves. This pan is so easy to use. Prior to first use you want to wash and dry the pan. Then place it on the stove over low heat and take a paper towel with oil on it and give the pan a light coating of the oil. Let it cook for a minute and that's it, you are ready to cook!
