From the Manufacturer
The Green Ceramic Pan Set by Ozeri includes an 8", 10" and 12" frying pan that each offers a non-stick solution while remaining free of PTFE, perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) such as PFBS, PFAS, PFOS and PFOA, APEO, GenX, and the lesser known chemicals NMP and NEP. According to the FDA, many of these chemicals constitute a worrisome class of nonstick and stain-resistant compounds that have found their way into the food chain, including grocery store meats and seafood. A federal toxicology report has linked a number of health concerns to the presence of these compounds in people’s blood. Conventional pans sometimes achieve their non-stick performance through a waxy synthetic coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), which under extreme temperatures begins to decompose and release fumes that can be harmful to humans and pets. Additionally, conventional may also utilize non-stick coatings made with the aid of per- and polyfluoroalykyl chemicals, also known as PFCs (PFBS, PFAS, PFOS, PFOA), which the EPA has cited as potential carcinogens and classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment,’ and APEO (Alkylphenol ethoxylates), which are restricted in Germany due to environmental concerns and toxicity in the food chain.
Labelled ‘forever chemicals’ due to their poor degradability and tendency to accumulate in people’s bodies, the EPA and FDA have cited consistent studies of people exposed to many of these compounds that suggest associations with several kinds of cancers, liver problems, low birth weight and other issues, concluding that many of these compounds are more dangerous than previously thought. By not using perfluorinated chemicals, the Green Ceramic Pan's German-made coating stands ahead of the curve, achieving the highest marks for food safety and environmental health. In addition to being free of perfluorinated chemicals, the Green Ceramic Pan uses an inert coating that is applied using a water-based Sol Gel Technique which is free of the lesser known but potentially harmful chemicals NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) and NEP (N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone), sometimes found in traditional cookware. Far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces, the Green Ceramic Pan allows you to sauté, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the oil normally used. The Green Ceramic Pan is made of die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat-resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Ceramic Pan features a honeycomb ceramic cooking surface designed to create small air pockets under food for optimized heat distribution. Coating by Weilburger, Germany. Pan assembled in China.
