It's no secret that in our house we love to eat and enjoy our food. I'm very fortunate to have a husband who loves to cook and I would say 80% of the time he does all of the cooking. I used to feel a little bit bad about this but trust me his food is far more enjoyable than my concoctions!
One thing that gets on my husband's nerves more than anything is a rubbish pan, you know the ones that things stick to or burn food and are just a bit rubbish! We do have a great set of pans already but you can't beat a decent frying pan. When asked if I/we wanted to test and review the Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan we were happy to oblige.
The Ozeri frying pan utilises something called Greblon which is a German ceramic coating. This particular pan features a honeycomb designed surface which is designed to prevent food from adhering to the base of the pan for an excellent non-stick performance. The raised areas of the cooking surface create air pockets which then distribute the heat underneath the food thus enhancing the cooking performance. Due to the superior non-stick coating it allows you to use half the amount of oil that you would normally and it's also very durable and scratch resistant.
The pan itself arrives packaged well and in a sturdy display box, I love that included in the box is a protector which just fits inside the base of the pan allowing you to put another pan on top without worrying about any damage to the cooking surface. The pan itself is a good weight, not flimsy or light but not too heavy that you'd struggle to lift it, it feels of a really good quality when handled. It's 26 cm in size so a decent surface area to allow for cooking, you can fit a fair few eggs in it as we found!
Since we received the pan my husband has been busy putting it through some 'rigorous' testing, well he's cooked fried eggs, bacon and a few omelette's in it! My repertoire to test it stretched only to an omelette for Alfie, I confess!
He has been fairly impressed with it, he has found it's cooked fried eggs particularly well, the bacon was also very tasty and well cooked. The non-stick surface is fantastic, the heat appears to be very well distributed and the weight of the pan is good. The one downside that he did find is that it's recommend that the pan should not be subjected to very high temperatures so things such as searing meats or letting it get too hot are unfortunately a no go, that been said we are yet to test out how well and whether it would sear meat if required.
Overall we have both been impressed with the quality and efficacy of the pan and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or purchase other items from the range. With a retail price of £24.99 I really think this is excellent value for money and I'm hoping that it will last for a long time even with extended use.
