Healthy cooking not only refers to the kind of food that you partake of daily; it also refers to the cookware you use while preparing and cooking these dishes. For this review, we are going to discuss GreenLife’s Soft Grip Ceramic Nonstick Open Fry Pan Set. The brand has its own patented natural and eco-friendly nonstick coating called Thermolon, and you will get its benefits from this particular pan.
Thermolon, according to the brand, is a nonstick advancement that is heat-resistant. This translates to the pan having a supplemental safety feature in case you overheat the item. Even with high temperatures, it is guaranteed that there will be no harmful fumes that will be emitted. Furthermore, the coating promises not to peel as well or break as well. Read on for more information about the product.
- Includes 7” and 10” frying pans
- Pans have Bakelite handles
- A ceramic nonstick model
- Has overall dimensions of (L x W x H) 17.36” x 10.63” x 2.87”
One of the primary intentions of the GreenLife company is to deliver nonstick cooking that is efficient, functional and eco-friendly. This particular ceramic nonstick set allows for balanced and steady heating to get rid of hot spots which can burn the food you are cooking. Uneven heating can also produce cold spots, which can then lead to food being half-cooked.
The product has the company’s patented Thermolon nonstick coating and thus far we have noticed its decent nonstick performance by way of a variety of foods. Not all nonstick pans that are available on the market can stay true to its promise, so this set from GreenLife surprised us with its good functioning. For a ceramic nonstick product, it did its job well.
Furthermore, one of its strongest points is its Thermolon technology. As mentioned earlier, Thermolon is a heat-resistant nonstick coating. Pans from the brand with this particular technology are PFOA-free.
The company also states that 60 percent less carbon dioxide is released over the course of Thermolon’s curing stage compared to the discharges of the curing stage of standard nonstick coatings. This makes Thermolon a healthy kind of ceramic nonstick finish.
We have also noticed that this coating is scratch resistant, and cleaning it takes less effort. Because of its scratch-resistant properties, the item can be used with rubber, wooden and plastic utensils.
The pan has an adequate heft to it that it can contain heat evenly, but it is also light enough to allow flipping and moving the item without being a bother to your wrists. It is fairly sturdy, and at this time, we did not see any marks of warping and indentations caused by accidental bumps.
In terms of its handles, it uses Bakelite, and they are comfortable to grasp and manage. They are also quite strong, and are riveted to the pan’s body for a more reinforced pan. A riveted handle means it will not only add strength to the pan, it will also remain tightly reined there. The handles remain cool even after fairly high temperatures (up to 350°).
Another good thing about the pans is that you can use them on regular stovetops. We have used the pans on electric, ceramic, and gas stovetops without any issues. Lastly, the pans are dishwasher friendly and are oven safe as well. They can handle up to 350° in terms of oven cooking.
Customers who were satisfied with their purchase shared that the pans were easy to clean and maintain, have a working nonstick coating, stay-cool handles and are sufficiently light.
Several customers did not like that the pans were for fit for induction cooking. There were also customers who complained that the items chipped rather easily.
The GreenLife Soft Grip Ceramic Pan Set will become your favorite due to its modern yet playful design, quality features, materials, and good nonstick performance. This is something that we will recommend to fellow cooking enthusiasts.
