Recently I was given the oppoutunity to review a 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri for free, in exchange for an honest review. Tony was excited about this review because our other frying pans weren’t really non–stick anymore, and the Earth Pan by Ozeri features Eterna – a safe and natural non-stick coating that was developed right here in the USA.
This pan is the worlds only stainless steel frying pan to achieve non-stick perfection without using PFOA — 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. 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.
The pan’s non-stick coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Earth Pan by Ozeri allows you to sauté, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is a breeze. All you need is a soft sponge and a bit of soap and everything wipes clean! I was worried when I was browning sausages up in the pan because some stuff seemed stuck to the pan, but low and behold, it wiped clean with a sponge.
The 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.
We have had pans in the past that didn’t cook foods evenly, or were so warped, it was impossible to get things to cook evenly. Whether it was eggs, ground beef, sausages or pancakes, we found the Earth Pan by Ozeri to cook everything evenly.
I was browning up some italian sausages to make sauce, and without even thinking, I grabbed the handle of the pan and dumped the sausages into the sauce. I was shocked to realize my hand was NOT burning, that the handle was actually room temperature. With some of our other pans, they have plastic handles, and they still get hot enough that you need a pot holder to move them.
The 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri is available on Amazon.com and as of November 5, 2013 they are only $34.99. The list price is $99.95 so you would be saving 65%!
