CLOSED Bridal Shower Giveaway: Green Pan




 
About: Green Pan

We are on a mission to help support the global challenges of living in our modern society, by bringing “constainability” (convenience and sustainability) to our products. ‘Convenient’ as we don’t ask you to change your lifestyle, ‘sustainable’ as we are preserving the natural resources of our planet in a responsible way. We strongly believe there is enough common sense in the world to realize that there is only one Earth to share and we must protect it. All over the world people have started to realize that global warming, pollution and the destruction of the environment are major issues for the 21st century. Unfortunately, with some decisions we have to make we don’t always have choices.


We, at GreenPan™ are committed to provide you with choices by offering you products that really will make a difference for your carbon footprint. You don’t have to change the way you live. We have changed the way products are made. A healthy and happy life in an enjoyable environment is our biggest goal in life. GreenPan™ commits to this, and invests 100% in research towards healthy and eco-friendly technologies.


Traditional non-stick is achieved by coating the fry pan with PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene); a waxy, synthetic substance. PTFE has well-documented disadvantages in practical household use. Above 260° C/500°F, this PTFE coating starts to decompose. The released fumes are proven to be lethal to small pets like birds! On humans, these fumes can potentially harm the respiratory tract and cause nausea and headaches. So, when you overheat your pan you damage not only your pan but possibly also your health.


GreenPan™ does not use PTFE, but brings with Thermolon™ non-stick technology a healthy alternative to the market. Thermolon™ is heat resistant up to high temperatures. This means that GreenPan™ has an extra safety feature; if you overheat your pan, even up to 450°C/850°F, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel.


Climate change is already happening and represents one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats facing the planet. We want to produce products as responsibly as we can. We try to make them energy efficient in order to save precious resources.


Our non-stick pots and pans are the first to be made with a non-stick coating made of minerals instead of plastics.


PTFE coatings are manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which is classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’*. Besides that, PFOA is a tough chemical that the body has the greatest difficulties in expelling and is known to be a ‘likely human carcinogen’*. We don’t use PTFE, so no PFOA can be emitted in the environment. * According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency, a US federal agency in charge of the protection of human health and the environment)


Less energy is used when Thermolon™ is applied on GreenPan™ products, which means 60% less CO2 emission compared with the production of PTFE-coated pans. We process used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. Therefore we use upcycled stainless steel for the handles and upcycled aluminium for the cookware bodies. GreenPan™ actively puts effort in research on how to minimize and optimize packaging materials.


Nowadays, cooking and eating has become so much more than fulfilling a primal need. We are aware of what we eat and cooking has become really ‘hot’. We make non-stick pans that allow you to prepare great dishes. All the products look great: premium materials in a clever design. But most of all: GreenPan™ performs!


Thermolon™ is a better heat conductor than traditional coatings. This results in superb searing and crispy frying!


The perfect heat distribution also allows even cooking, which makes the food brown beautifully. It allows you to mostly cook on low to medium temperatures, which is great for your energy bill & the environment!

Thanks to the sophisticated technology, the moisture and flavors of the food are almost instantly sealed in and this gives you great taste and flavor. The Thermolon™ surface provides great non-stick and is very easy to clean.
