I was recently asked if I would like to review this Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri....
The pan (a frying pan) is 26cm (10"), so its a good size. Its made of the highest quality stainless steel, with a heat resistant stainless steel handle. I was worried that it would be too heavy for me, but I was pleasantly surprised, of course it is heavy, but its not overly heavy, just right for me.
It has a 100% PFOA-free coating, which apparently is the worlds longest lasting PFOA-free nonstick coating. If like me, you are unaware of PFOA, PerFluoroOctanoic Acid, it is a harmful chemical which can be found in traditional cookware. Apparently, once ingested, it can stay in a person for a very long time. After reading about it, I am very relieved that this pan is PFOA-free!
I couldn't wait to test out this pan. The first meal I cooked in it was a bolognese, well actually thats a lie, it was a
lazy quick deconstructed lasagne! Ok, to be honest I don't know what to call it! It is mince, pasta and white sauce! Either way, it tasted yummy!
The pan was a joy to use, it certainly lived up to its non stick claim, the handle didn't get hot at all and best of all it was easy to clean! Although its dishwasher safe, for the purpose of this review I hand washed the pan and it was very easy to clean.
That was around 3 weeks ago, since then I have used the pan lots! One thing that has clearly stood out for me, was how much oil I was NOT using! I found that a little oil was going a lot further when comparing to my usual frying pan. I have used it to make pancakes, fry onions, cook a stir fry, fry mince (again), fajitas, and of course to fry bacon!
I can honestly say, it is the best frying pan I have owned! It even comes with its own pan protector, to protect the surface of the pan from scratches whilst in storage!! The quality of the pan is amazing, especially when you consider the price. Its currently on offer on Amazon for £29.99, normal price of £44.99. What a bargain!
If you are looking for a durable, easy to clean, non stick pan. This is the one for you! I can see it lasting for many years to come!
