I was recently sent an Ozeri Green Earth frying pan to review.
It promises to be non stick, naturally. Suitable for all types of stoves-including induction and has a natural ceramic coating which is achieved by using no PTFE, PFOA or other harmful chemicals.
I had no idea what PTFEs or PFOAs were but Mr Google came to my rescue and it seems these nasty’s are used on some pans but can release harmful chemicals at high temperatures. Who knew?
The pan was very attractive to look at. Shiny and an attractive green shade which complimented my red kitchen perfectly.
I don’t know about you, but when something promises to do something, I like to really try it out.
After all, from previous experience, non-stick doesn’t always mean non-stick and what is the stickiest substance known to man? That’s right.
So omelettes were on the menu last week. Cheese for me and cheese and ham for Hubster and Boo.
The instructions which come with the pan say use only a small amount of oil-no more than a ¼ of a teaspoon. This made me even more determined to prove that surely, it couldn’t be non stick.
So in the whisked eggs went and I waited.
I flipped the omelette over expecting much of it to be left on the pan.
It flipped over like a dream and, on adding the cheese, it folded over like a professional omelette-the type you get on holiday in Spain-you know the sort.
I can only say I was wrong.
Indeed there are pans out there that are none stick and the Ozeri Green Earth frying pan is one of them.
You can buy them from Amazon.
