8" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri Review

This review will speak to the cooks out there who really want a good set of pans without paying a huge price or worrying about the materials the pans are made out of not being safe. This 8" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri has an ultra safe ceramic coating from Germany and is 100% PTFE and PFOA free. 

The pan has a uniquer texture for enhanced heat distribution and superior non stick performance. The ceramic coating is scratch resistant, although I still would not use anything metal to scrape this pan. The pan claims to be easily washable and is made of durable, heavy gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals of harmful chemicals. People use to swear by Teflon pans, that is, until the Teflon would wear off and end up in your food. That's no bueno, folks! 

You'll see that the bottom of it is designed to also distribute heat more evenly. You see a lot of pans with this design on the bottom. I have a set of Paula Dean pans with this same concept. However, what you can't see from this picture, that is different from my Paula Deans is that there's a tiny "lip" of sorts on the bottom. Almost like the bottom of the pan is a separate piece from the "bowl" part of the pan. I'm probably not making any sense, and that should be little surprise to any of you by now. Hahaha!

At any rate, that little "lip" is also pretty essential in the way this pan cooks the food. 

The handle of the pan is heat resistant so you're not going to burn yourself when you go to remove the pan from the burner or what-not.

I REALLY wanted to test this out by making the cheesiest omelet I could, because nothing is worse than cheese and egg on a pan. However, last night my husband and I decided to have steaks and as usual, the hubs is the one who cooks the steaks (to perfection I may add). he has this habit of burning my pans. I don't know what his deal is, but he's ruined many of my "good" pans cooking up steaks.  

They look delicious though, don't they?

So I figured, if anything is going to test this pan, it's going to be my husband's steaks. As you can see in the picture, they are starting to get a "glaze" of sorts under them which would usually burn and stick to your pan. If you didn't have a non-stick pan, kiss that pan goodbye. 

I actually let him cook them so they would get that stuff in the bottom of the pan on purpose. Testing purposes, you know. We happened to do three other small steaks in our Paula Dean pan, which up until now, I really loved and were my favorite. After dinner, when I was dreading cleaning my husband's steak pans, I was surprised by how the Ozeri pan just wiped clean. No scrubbing required. My Paula Dean pan, however, wasn't quite as easy. the pan still wiped clean, and I technically didn't need to scrub it, but I had to go over it a few more times with the dish sponge to get it good and clean, while the Ozeri pan, came clean with one or two swipes of the sponge and just some warm, soapy, dishwater. No soaking required. 

As for how it cooks: perfectly!
The steaks were evenly cooked and exactly how we like them. Unlike the Paula Dean pan, which we had to move the steaks around often to cook all of them pretty evenly. 

Ultimately, I would recommend this pan. As a matter of fact, we decided last night that this pan was so good, that we are going to be purchasing the other sizes as well.

You can purchase this pan, as well as the 10 and 12 inch pans on AMAZON.

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.
