Recently, I was contacted by a PR firm with a list of potential items for review. After scanning the list, my eyes lit up when I saw “cookware.” I read over the description quickly, saw “non-stick coating” and got irrationally excited. My current pots and pans are stainless steel and all they do is hang on to food.
Then, I panicked. To my knowledge, many brands of non-stick cookware are known to be toxic because they contain PolyTetraFluoroEthylene or Teflon. I called my best friend Mint, who is more eco-conscious than I am. She asked me to find out the name of the non-stick cookware I would be reviewing. I scanned the email from the PR firm, and found the brand name.
“GreenPan?” I asked tentatively.
“Yes! GreenPan is good.” She confirmed. She went on to say that she was excited I would be reviewing this particular product, as she was strongly considering putting a set of GreenPan cookware on her wedding registry!
GreenPan is an eco-friendly alternative to teflon-based cookware.
Instead of Teflon, GreenPan uses Thermolon, a mineral coating that is derived from sand that contains no toxins. For more information on Thermolon, click here.
I was so excited to test out this frying pan, I decided to make some scrambled eggs. After I washed out my new pan, I added some olive oil.
Here is what it looked like after cooking:
