Are you serious cooks who look for a quality non-Teflon cookware which features high-heat cooking? GreenPan stands out the performance---850 degree F heat resistance with aluminum core---as well as earthy-friendly.
What we like:
When ready to get more cooking techniques, you’ll soon find that there is tons green cookware out there, but most of them are limited the temperatures, under 450 degree F. As said, however, this is not for this Belgium-made cookware. By deriving the advantage of Thermolon technology, GreenPan can resist to 850 degrees F without releasing nasty gas fumes from PFOA and PTFE, silicon oil, or even lead and cadmium. This allows for most stove top, which are gas, electric, ceramic and halogen ranges, as well as oven. Nonstick feature does well without oils or butters.
Then, what’s the cooking performance? For hard-anodized aluminum with thermolon coats, the Paris collection does pretty well. It does pleased results for low-temperature cooking. For high-heat cooking, the pan takes a little more time to heat, but ceramic coatings retains and distributes heat effectively, which requires less energy for evenly searing meat or frying rice. (The company claims it can reduce emission of carbon dioxide by 60% from this effect, also.) Yet, for nutrient-and pan-reserved, we still suggest cooking in high temperature for short time.
The overall construction is solid and hefty. Hard-anodized aluminum with Themolon Marathon series make the whole body extra durability, includes the coats. The recycled stainless handles and rivets make longer uses, as well as safe for ovens. We love the design of the Paris series. Not only modern stunning, but the well-ergonomic design does make easy and practical for real uses---size, slopes of the edges, solid feel and weight in hand are really nice for serious cooks. The look definitely gets style.
What we don't like:
Like most nonstick, the pan needs more care and caution for metal utensils, abrasive scrubs, cool down before clean, handwashing and long high heat. We’ve found that most reviewers accepted for exceptional durability of the construction, however, some of them experienced food sticking after months of uses. Beware extremely long-time high temperature and follow the manufacturer’s construction strictly for retaining nonstick feature. Moreover, this green cookware is pricey than others in the same range.
|Overall, the GreenPan Paris is a nice solution for both healthy and eco-friendly, while lets serious chefs enjoy the pleasing cooking performance---nonstick coats, 850 degree F heat resistance, oven-safe and solid construction.
