Green Pan—How eco is it?

by cathy

Green pan is an eco-friendly cookware which eliminates the scare of causing harm to your family as well as the environment. A lot of green pan reviews talk about how eco are these. Let us see some of the facts now.

There are many reasons to change to a green pan. First, green pans do away with PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) or Teflon, in general language. Teflon, if heated above 500°C, starts to disintegrate and emits fumes which are lethal to birds and can harm the respiratory tract of humans as well. Green Pan uses Thermolon non-stick technology which can be heated without any troubles until 850°C. According to EPA (US federal agency), a teflon coating is made by using another helping chemical —PFOA, which is called as a “persistent pollutant” and it is a human carcinogen (an agent causing cancer) as well. With these pans, no PTFE coating so no use of PFOA at all while manufacturing.

60% less CO? is emitted while applying the Thermolon coating on the pans in comparison to the PTFE coated pans. The eco-friendly nature of a green pan doesn’t stop here. The Green Pan manufacturers have also used upcycled stainless steel and upcycled aluminium for handles and cookware bodies respectively. The Green pan reviews were also found talking about the great heat distribution system which cooks the food in an equal manner from all the sides. Some people also say in the Green pan reviews that due to the great ergonomic designs (suitable to be used by humans) used by Green pan, they have found these pans very convenient to handle.

This new technology gives us more than one reason to change our preferences to a cookware which is non-stick, prepares food rich in taste, and lets us contribute towards the harmful emissions spoiling the ozone out there.

Greenpan reviews will talk a lot of things about less convenience or the food sticking on the surface after a few uses, but one needs to check the brand before buying these pans. Not all companies have perfected the technology due to which such negative green pan reviews are doing the rounds. You need to finally decide between your families or go by these greenpan reviews.

Do you know how long Green Pan has been around? I’m curious simply because I wonder about the longevity and the long-term safety of the new coating. Teflon is a bit of a “known quantity”, whereas something like this is new, and a little scary. I wonder if any studies have been done, similar to the studies on the effects of BPA?

Is this a new thing? I think I may have seen an ad for something similiar on television before

Never really thought of cookware as being eco-friendly. But, then again I never knew how harmful Teflon is. I’m throwing my pans away today. Thank you for your article.

Do not store Green Pans in broiler under oven! I was baking breadsticks in the oven one night and heard a loud explosion .when I opened the broiler drawer where I had a green pan stored I seen that a rivet had blown off the pan and was lying in the broiler drawer .thank god I was not cooking with it on the stove when this defective piece of junk exploded!

Honestly, I think it best to just use glass. That’s the safest and alot cheaper.

I agree with Gordon on this, glass is the best. But yes, Teflon is not eco-friendly. The Green Pan needs more time to be tested and trusted, and if it proves to be good, then I would recommend it then. Right now it is too soon, so I stick with glass for now.
