As a wife an mother of three I obviously spend a lot if time cooking. Recently I received the chance to review a new pan from Ozeri. The 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri has a 100% PFOA-Free Non-Stick Coating called ETERNA that was developed in the USA. As a long term cast iron pan user this review for me would be very different.
You maybe be wonder what is PFOA-Free and why is it important?? Ozeri is the world's only stainless steel frying pan to achieve non-stick perfection without using PFOA. PFOA is a harmful chemical used in all traditional cookware. Conventional pans achieve their non-stick performance with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. According to the EPA, once ingested PFOA is capable of remaining in people for a very long time, and has been shown to cause developmental and other adverse effects in laboratory animals.(Am I making your tummy turn yet?? I know mine did!) With the Stainless Steel Earth Pan's ETERNA coating, even under high temperatures, no harmful substances are ever released into the environment. This is because the Stainless Steel Earth Pan utilizes a completely safe and environmentally-friendly coating developed in the USA. The Stainless Steel Earth Pan's non-stick coating is completely free of PFOA, and far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Stainless Steel Earth Pan 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 a breeze. The Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel with TriPly construction, delivering the ultimate in heat conductivity for even cooking and browning without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a polished mirror exterior.
First thing was first I put away the oil and the metal cooking tools! I wanted to give this pan a true test with a good that I'm sure most will agree is just hard to cook without sticking, eggs! As you can see this pan is a really nice size, so even for a family of five getting ready to cook eggs I was ready. I mixed up 9 eggs and turned the heat on medium and let the pan warm.With my wooden spoon I cooked my eggs with NO OIL AT ALL! I was nothing short of amazed lol. To clean it I simply washed it with warm water and a paper towel and it was just like new :)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.
