From the Manufacturer
Exclusively made in the province of Brescia in northern Italy, Ozeri presents the Professional Series Induction Pan in Black Onyx, absolutely free of toxic substances such as APEO, GenX fluorinated chemicals, PFBS, PFOS, PFOA, 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. Although the harmful acid PFOA, and to a certain extent PFOS, have been generally phased out of production, non-stick coatings today are often made with the aid of a new generation of advanced fluoropolymers, known as GenX fluorinated chemicals and PFBS. According to EPA studies on these chemicals, the “data are suggestive of cancer” and when orally consumed, these chemicals may be capable of affecting the kidneys, blood, immune system, liver and developing fetuses. Also of concern are APEO chemicals (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 these fluorinated chemicals, the Professional Series Induction Pan’s coating stands ahead of the curve, achieving the highest marks for food safety and environmental health. In addition, the Professional Series Pan uses an inert coating that is applied using a water-based Sol Gel Technique which is also free of the lessor known but potentially harmful chemicals NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) and NEP (N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone), sometimes found in traditional cookware. With better non-stick properties, the pan consistently renders cleaning a breeze. The Ozeri Professional Series Induction Pan in Black Onyx is exemplary in its Italian craftsmanship, kitchen appeal, and inductive technology. Durable and scratch-resistant, the pan boasts an aluminum core with a magnetized AISI 430 steel base plate for use with rapid heat-transfer induction stoves, allowing it to achieve cooking temperatures with less energy and time. Coating made in Germany. Pan made in Italy.
