Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri

Much of my cookware of late has had scratches in the Teflon coating. Upon researching the stuff, I have found that the EPA has identified cancer causing chemicals in it! Considering that this is a product that I routinely use in cooking for my family, I found this to be more than a bit alarming!

While no Teflon products have been recalled, it makes me want to make other choices going forward. I recently received a Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri to try and so far, I have been impressed. I have been using it for about two weeks now and have found it to be reliable, non-stick and easy to clean.

The Earth Pan is coated with ETERNA, which is free of the cancer-causing chemicals that Teflon contains. It also free of any unsafe heavy metals, which is great for peace of mind when cooking for my family.

Now, you might be wondering it it will perform as well as Teflon. Personally, I think it works even better! I can use a lower heat and still have even cooking. I can also put it in the oven (up to 500 degrees). It is also far more scratch-resistant than other non-stick pans (compared to both Teflon and the OrGREENic pan - I have used both). I let my son do the dishes one day (he is a weird kid - he likes doing them!) and he used the rough side of a sponge to clean it before I could stop him. There was no damage!

This pan has a heft to it that I like in my cookware. Being the klutz that I am, I tend to knock into things, and with a light pan, it can get off kilter (which affects how evenly it cooks). The pan weighs in at 2.4 pounds and 10 inches. Besides that, I love the look of it. It has a shine to it that just looks great!

* I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I like that this pan is easy to clean. I didn't know that about Teflon, so Thanks, it's pretty scary. I want to call my girls and tell them to throw away all their teflon pans. :)

  2. Glad you are raising the awareness of cancer causing Teflon!

  3. I didn't realize Teflon had cancer promoting chemicals. Thanks for making me aware! ~Rachel

  4. I've heard about Teflon before, and did not use them until after I lost all my cookware in a fire. It seems all the cheaper pans are coated these days, which just makes the idea worse. Would love to go non teflon with a a good pan I could scrub.
