Ozeri’s 8″ Green Earth Frying Pan – review and #giveaway – ends 6/13

In general, I shy away from non-stick cookware, preferring my nice heavy stainless steel cookware for most cooking needs. That being said, there are times that a non-stick surface makes life so much easier. Ever tried to scrape a stuck on crepe out of a pan? NOT recommended!

I was recently offered a chance to review the Ozeri 8″ Green Earth Frying Pan. Today I’m here to tell you that it has moved into the favorite pan position in my kitchen!

This is no wimpy little frying pan! This little workhorse of a frying pan has a nice satisfying heft to it without being too heavy to maneuver. It’s weight helps it to settle nicely on the burner and the ceramic surface heats quickly and evenly…no hot spots here!

The handle is quite comfortable to me as well. I have smallish hands and many times a handle will feel somewhat awkward to me. Not a problem here. The  heat resistant Bakelight handle can even take the oven’s heat up to 350 degrees making it an excellent pan for frittatas and other foods you’d like to ‘finish’ in the oven.

It’s amazingly non-stick. I actually grated cheese into the pan and deliberately burned it to test this great little ceramic pan for myself and you guessed it, even burned cheese didn’t stick! It slid right on out of the Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan and left no residue behind.

My husband’s breakfast omelet released like a dream, too and it has even replaced my favorite crepe pan!

It’s eco-friendly and non-toxic as it’s completely free of PTFE, POFA and other harmful chemicals and makes a nice attractive addition to my kitchen. It’s definitely a pan I feel good about using!

Vegan Crepes

1/2 cup soymilk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup melted Earth Balance
3 tablespoons turbinado sugar or 3 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

1 In a large mixing bowl, blend soy milk, water, margarine, sugar, syrup, flour, and salt.
2 Cover and chill the mixture for 2 hours.
3 Heat a 5-6″ skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it.
4 Pour approximately 3 tablespoons batter into the skillet.
5 Swirl to make the batter cover the skillet’s bottom.
(You may have to thin the batter out with a bit of water if it doesn’t spread out easily).
6 Cook until golden, flip and cook on opposite side.
(The crepes are very delicate and a bit hard to flip.. i find it easiest to shake the pan a bit to loosen the crepe and then use my fingers to grab the edge and flip it).

The good folks at Ozeri would like you to try this fine product too and are offering one of my readers a chance to win an Ozeri 8″ Green Earth Frying Pan of their own! The only thing they ask in return is that you write a review, on Amazon, after you’ve had a chance to try it for yourself. Not too shabby, huh?
