A review of GreenPan, as part of a series on Teflon alternatives for non-stick cookware by Saul Brown

I’ve found an alternative to Teflon that I’m comfortable sticking to: The 13” GreenPan is my new kitchen fry pan and so far so good. It works great, feels good and has taken stress out of my non-stick dilemma.

GreenPan is a ceramic non-stick line of Belgian-made cookware products that are free of PFOAs and PTFEs. A great alternative for quality, health and environmental responsibility, GreenPan uses a material called Thermolon, which the company says “uses half the energy in its manufacturing of a PTFE-based coating,” and is free of PFOA—so has a smaller footprint on the environment and your health. However, because Thermolon is such a new material, the jury is still out on how safe it is.

One of the benefits of GreenPan is its ability to brown. So look out, Ocean Wise halibut, I’m looking for you—you’ve got a date with my GreenPan!

GreenPan can be found locally in Vancouver at Cookworks at 1548 West Broadway and 377 Howe Street.
