Hey folks! It's hard to believe Christmas is just a few days away. Are you still looking for a last minute gift for someone or already planning what to spend with a gift card you might have received as a gift? Even if you're trying to find something for that person who has everything, I think this ceramic pan from Ozeri will fit the bill!
The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri has lots of unique and awesome features:
- Durable, scratch-resistant ceramic
- No harmful metals or chemicals
- Ceramic coating is derived from nature
- Patterned cooking surface helps prevent food from sticking
- Pattern also makes for more even cooking
- Easy to clean
- Silicone handle
- Safe for use with induction stoves
We have a set of ceramic pots and pans that we received for Christmas last year from a different brand that we absolutely love. AND, we also had the chance to review a set of Instavac storage containers from Ozeri a couple of years ago and love those as well, so needless to say, we were excited to try out the Green Earth Pan!
We received the 8” pan to review, but you can also get it in 10” and 12” diameters. The 8” is the perfect size for small things, such as cooking eggs, a grilled cheese sandwich, sauteing veggies, etc. It comes in handy for us as a family of three and it would definitely be good for a single person or couple, but I would love to have one of the bigger ones too!
Like I said, we love the ceramic pots and pans we already have, but we especially like this one because it's even easier to clean. The ones we already have don't have coating on the rivets which makes cleaning them a pain in the butt, especially with eggs. The Green Earth Pan has EVERYTHING coated, including the rivets, so that's why cleaning it is even easier!
It also comes with this nifty cover to protect it while storing!
The patterned cooking surface also makes cleaning super easy. Depending on what you cooked in it, you almost don't even need to wash it. You could easily use a cloth or paper towel to wipe out any leftovers, kind of like with cast iron pans.
I also like that this pan doesn't have any nasty chemicals in the coating like most “non-stick” pots and pans. I know I won't have to worry in years to come about nasty bits coming off and mixing in with my food, let alone dangerous fumes. Ew! Who wants nasty black bits in their food?!
I have noticed it seems to take a little longer to cook with this pan. However, I attribute that to still getting used to it since it's new to me and because it cooks everything more evenly because of the textured cooking surface. In other words, not necessarily a bad thing!
You can order your own Ozeri Green Earth Pan on Amazon. (Don't forget: There are three different sizes to choose from!) If you like, you can also learn more about Ozeri on their website or stay up-to-date with them on Facebook.
