The Cookware Company/GreenPan Review

Ladies, I have an amazing product to share with you today! I absolutely love to cook. My wonderful husband would question that since I don’t do it everyday, but when I have the time, I love it! It has been rather difficult for me to find cookware that I love but I have recently found just that…cookware that I am totally in love with! It’s called GreenPan and these products are referred to as a “new generation of cookware”. GreenPan develops cookware based on three principles: convenience, health and environment. What mama wouldn’t love that?

First, let’s talk about the health aspect of this cookware. I want to tell you that GreenPan is PTFE free. If you aren’t familiar with that, it is polytetrafluorethylene or other fluoropolymers. These have been known to release a multitude of toxic chemicals when they are heated above 260 degrees Celsius. GreenPan’s non stick coating is Thermolon, which contains absolutely no PFOA or PTFE! As a mama, you can feel comforted in knowing that when you cook with GreenPan, you are not serving food that could have toxic chemicals in it from the cookware you used to prepare it. In the process of manufacturing PTFE, the synthetic chemical PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) is used. PFOA is classified as a persistent pollutant for the environment and is harmful to our health. Thermolon doesn’t contain these or any other harmful chemical!

Environmentally, GreenPan wins my heart here too! During the Thermolon application process there is 60% less carbon dioxide emitted when compared with conventional non stick coatings! Wow! How great is that? Not only that, but GreenPan’s Thermolon coating is a better conductor of heat than traditional coatings. This means you will get even heating and you can cook on low to medium heats, which in turn will lower your energy bills! GreenPan also uses upcycled cast stainless steel for their handles, upcycled aluminum for the bodies and packaging made from post-consumer paper in a bleach free process! I LOVE it when companies are concerned about our environment and it shows in their products! They get a big thumbs up from me for this!

Ok, now that those wonderful technical details are out of the way, let me tell you my personal experience with the pan I reviewed. We received a wonderful little package from GreenPan. It contained an 8″ non stick fry pan, a sponge to clean the pan with and a hot pad, all in a reusable bag! It was a very well put together package and I was so excited when I received it! One of my husband’s favorite things for breakfast is a fried egg sandwich and I knew this pan would be perfect for making those! It is the perfect size for eggs and for pancakes, it has become my new breakfast best friend in the kitchen! It is true that you can use a lower temperature with these pans. I did so and it cooked the eggs so well! I love the Thermolon coating! It’s unlike any other pan I have cooked in and it’s just as smooth as ever and nothing I have cooked in this pan has ever even come close to sticking. The eggs cooked rather quickly and evenly. It was wonderful for our beloved egg sandwiches! Next, I cooked pancakes. Can I just say this is the BEST ever pan for pancakes? I have always had problems with cooking pancakes and now I am convinced it was because of the pans I used. This pan truly cooks them evenly and I had no problems whatsoever flipping them when it was time. They stayed together because the pancake was cooked evenly and thoroughly! I also used this pan to saute mushrooms and onions. Again, it worked SO well. Cleaning this pan is a breeze! Everything wipes of so easily and I simply used the sponge with warm water and soap. It was super easy to clean!

You can see it’s the perfect size for frying two eggs. This particular pan is from the Copenhagen collection and it comes in an 8 inch, a 9.5 inch and a 12 inch fry pan. I can say that I will be asking for more of these for my birthday (in July if anyone wants to buy me a gift!! HAHA!). I normally wouldn’t ask for items that involve work, but I really, really want more of these!
I know you want some of your own GreenPans!! Get them here:
You can get these in a wide variety of products including cookware, professional cookware, ovenware and accessories. They are available from Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kitchen Collection, Le Gourmet Chef, Crate and Barrel and Target Stores.

  1. Awesome – these are at Target? I love an easy to clean pan!

    I haven’t thought much about the transference of chemicals from my teflon pans, but it makes sense. I’ll have to check these out!

  2. I love shopping at Target too! I will have to look for these next time I’m out shopping! I haven’t thought much about the chemicals in my pans either, so thanks for the food for thought!

  3. The Green Pan really does sound green! I love that they’re using upcycled materials. That’s awesome.

    I’ll be sure to look for these the next time I’m at Target or C&B.

    Best,

    I had no idea these are at target. We shop there a ton & actually need more cookware for the upcoming move. I will for sure check these out 🙂

  5. Marni's Organized Mess says:

    I want some now! I love the fact that they are not releasing chemicals into your food. Green is the way to go, and I agree that companies who sell it win my approval! I wish I had money to buy a few like, yesterday!

  6. They sound great… I am looking for some new pans!! I am heading to bed bath & beyond!!

  7. shamrocksgal says:

    Super cute package they had for you. I am going to have to check Target out- I use that size pan the most

  8. shamrocksgal says:

    Checked Target today- they only had the wok and the large fry pan in stock. I’ll keep checking!

  9. 4given1 says:

    I’ll check these out tomorrow at Target. I would love to have a pan like this for cooking eggs and pancakes in.

    These are awesome…I’ve never seen them at target but I will be on the lookout next time! I feel like my frying pans always get super nasty, so I would love to have a high-quality nonstick one. And of course I love that they are made from recycled material! THanks for the review!
