Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

GreenPan is a Belgian Cookware manufacturer which is the first to launch PTFE free non-stick cookware.

The GreenPan family brings you ranges of beautifully designed, technologically advanced cookware pieces with a unique environmental message: Each of our products makes a serious commitment to your Health, your Convenience and the Environment.

Health:
Thermolon & trade; is a natural ceramic non-stick coating made from minerals instead of plastic synthetics!
It contains no PTFE/PF0A!* So if you accidentally overheat your pan, even up to 450°C / 850°F, you will not release harmful fumes, and the coating will never blister or peel.

Quality & Convenience:
Independent tests have proved that GreenPan performs outstandingly across a whole variety of tests – Food release, Hardness, Abrasion resistance and Heat resistance.
Greenpan's Thermolon coating is an excellent heat conductor. This gives you superb searing, browning and crispy frying!
Our cookware allows you to cook evenly on low to medium temperatures, which makes your GreenPan great for your energy bill & the environment!

GreenPan by name, green by nature:
As there is no PTFE in the coating, no PFOA can be emitted in the environment!
The Thermolon coating is applied in one coat at lower temperatures meaning less energy is used - the application creates approximately 60% less CO2 emission compared with the production of PTFE-coated pans.
We use recycled stainless steel for handles and recycled material in the aluminium bases.
Even the packaging is mostly made of recycled materials, with minimum use of ink!

In short, GreenPan products are healthy, easy and eco-friendly!

The Kyoto range offers you a true alternative to traditional PTFE based non-stick cooking. With a classic design and exceptional non-stick performance the natural ceramic coating is guaranteed for two years and will not blister or peel. The body and handle is guaranteed for five years.

*PTFE: PolyTetraFluoroEthylene / PFOA: PerFluoroOctanoicAcid - Neither of these are in the GreenPan Thermolon coating


GreenPan Care and Use Instructions

Read all safety information carefully and thoroughly before using this product!

1) Important Safeguards
•    Do not allow children near the stove while you cook.
•    To avoid injury always use caution when handling hot pots.
•    For safety reasons never leave cookware unattended while in use and make sure the handles do not extend over the edge of the stove.
•    Do not allow handles to extend over a hot burner, because the handles could get hot.  
•    The handles of your cookware are constructed to minimize heat transfer; Nevertheless, lids and handles may become hot during prolonged cooking. Use caution when removing lids or lifting with the handles.  Touch lightly to be sure the handles have not become hot.  Use oven mitts or potholders if necessary.
•    Always use oven gloves when removing pans from a hot oven.
•    Where Bakelite handles or stainless steel handles with silicone are fitted or glass lids are used always check their temperature resistance before using in an oven.

2) Usage Guide
Before First Use:
•    Remove all packaging materials and labels (please recycle rubbish properly)
•    Wash in warm soapy water; rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Cooking:
Recommendations in order not to warp your GreenPan product:
•    Do not preheat on a high setting.
•    When preheating a pan, never leave it un-attended.
•    Do not allow the pan to boil dry. 
•    Do not put hot pans under cold water immediately.

Recommendations for energy-saving and best cooking and frying results:
•    Cook on a burner that is approximately similar in base diameter to that of the pan you have selected.
•    When cooking on gas, adjust the flame so it does not flare up the sides of the pan.
•    Use low heat to warm foods, simmer or prepare delicate sauces.
•    Heat settings are very important.  Lower heat settings are not only good for energy-saving but also avoids the pan becoming too hot. The nature of ceramics is to hold and distribute the heat more effectively, helping some protein-rich foods cook more quickly.
•    For energy-saving, do not use your dishwasher to clean your cookware.

Recommendations for best food release:
•    Always start with a clean pan.  Wash carefully with a soft cloth or sponge and be sure that you have removed all traces of cooking oil and food before you store your pan.
•    Remove food from the refrigerator 10 minutes before you intend to cook or fry.
•    Do not drop the pan on the floor, and take care not to wrap or bend the pan as this may deform the ceramic non-stick coating, resulting in loss of non-stick properties.
•    Remember to pre-heat your pan and allow the oil to heat for a minute before you add food to the pan. 
•    If food sticks to the pan during cooking, add a small amount of water to the part of the pan that the food is stuck to.  Adding moisture will create a burst of steam that should lift any food stuck to the pan.

•    Note: After a while it is normal that non-stick properties will reduce.  This process can be accelerated by prolonged exposure of the non-stick surface to high heat during cooking owing to carbonisation of food and oil. The patented Thermolon & trade; non-stick technology can withstand accidental over-heating up to 450°C/850°F for short periods, which is a safety feature.  This means that if you do accidentally overheat your pan, no toxic fumes will be released. Moreover, the coating itself will not blister or peel.
When the non-stick starts to fade, the thick high density ceramic undercoat allows the pan to be used just like cast iron enamelled pans.

Cooking oils and fats:
•    We recommend using oil or butter. Remember, some oils and fats burn at lower temperatures.  Fats and oils work in various temperature ranges.  We recommend extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil; they are healthier and have a relatively high burn point.
•    Because of the excellent heat conductivity of your pan and the Thermolon layer, food and oil carbonize very rapidly.  So always cook on low to medium heat and only use high heat for searing or browning.
•    Do not use oil sprays.  These sprays cause residue build-up that is difficult to remove from all types of cookware.
•    When applying oil, always give the oil a nice even rub onto the surface of the pan.

Utensils:
•    Never use metal utensils on any non-stick surface.  Bamboo, plastic, rubber or other wooden utensils are recommended to prolong the life of the pan.
•    Do not cut food whilst it is in the pan.

3) Care and Cleaning:
•    Your GreenPan product is very easy and convenient to clean.  In the case of dishwasher use, the non-stick properties of ceramic non-stick coatings can be broken down by the hardness of the water and aggressive alkaline detergents that are commonly used in a dishwasher. To preserve your pan we recommend that you simply wash it in warm, soapy water.  Rinse and dry with a soft towel or kitchen paper.
•    Allow the pan to cool and then clean it thoroughly after each use.
•    Always ensure the pan is clean before you store it. 
•    Plunging a hot pan into water can cause irreparable warping.
•    Halogen and ceramic stovetops – Take care to ensure that your stovetop and your GreenPan product is kept free from debris so as not to scratch the ceramic stovetop’s surface.
•    Do NOT use steel wool or nylon scrubbing pads.  For best results, clean with a soft cloth or sponge.
•    Do NOT use oven cleaner or any cleaner that is abrasive or which contains chlorine bleach.  Do NOT gouge the non-stick-coating.
•    Slight surface marks and discolorations are normal. The only difference with black-coloured coatings and Thermolon & trade; is that stains and other marks can show up more visibly on the light grey Thermolon surface.
•    If black deposits form on your non-stick coating this is likely to have resulted from prolonged exposure of the non-stick surface to high heat during cooking with fats and oils which can break down. This can create carbonized oil and fat films.  These factors will accelerate the loss of non-stick performance. If this happens then empty any loose food, partly fill the pan with warm water and let it come to a quick boil. Then turn off the stove and leave it to cool.  After cooling the burnt food should be easily wiped away. 
For tougher burns, soak the pan in soapy water for a few hours followed by patient rubbing with a soft cloth.  Do not use any abrasive cleaners, harsh scouring pads or steel wool as this will damage the non-stick.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Looks great at first, but then fell apart 20 April 2010
    I loved this pan at first and raved about it to everyone i knew, because it didn't burn anything and was so incredibly easy to clean. However, after about a month of hand washing it after use, it started to get this horrible sticky material on the back which wouldn't come off, and after time the inside rim became brown, almost like rust, that couldn't be removed either. So i defintiely don't use it anymore, and was very disappointed.

    1.0 out of 5 stars sticky issues! 7 Nov 2011
    By miren
    I was looking for a pan that could be used at very high heat as an alternative to the cast iron pans I use.
    The coating is rated to stand 450 degrees Celsius.
    I used it a few times on medium heat and it looked reasonably non-stick, although there were a few dark sticky bits after each use. I managed to clean it when rubbing it strongly with a non-scratch cloth.
    On medium heat, frying some bacon, it gets stuck to the pan. A well-seasoned cast iron pan is more non-stick than this one.
    It looks like it is better non-stick at higher temperatures.
    I am very disappointed with this pan. I used it only 5 times and the non-stick claim is a joke.
    It is not green at all, because you have to buy a second pan that actually works. CO2 emissions for manufacturing 2 pans cannot be called green.
    The latest Tefal pans are miles better. Get one of the heavier Tefal pans that are suitable for induction because they keep the shape on higher heats. (The thin aluminium ones bend).

    1.0 out of 5 stars Would Not Buy Another One 8 April 2012
    By UK Dad
    Verified Purchase
    Prior to buying this pan (and for the past 4 purchases) I've gone with a heavy based Tefal teflon (Preference model, normally around 30-40) which I will use and abuse for around 18 months before it finally starts to lose it's non-stick surface. This time around I thought to myself that there must have been advances in technology by now that makes these pans less of a consumable purchase - I don't mind paying extra for something that will last years but that theory doesn't always apply to something that will naturally start to degrade even if it is made to the best standards (Teflon pans for me have always needed to be replaced, so not much point going for Le Creuset etc). So I thought I would give this a go after it was recommended by the staff where I normally buy my kitchen goods.

    I purchased it 2 months ago, have used it about 3 times a week and it is now unusable. Having cooked sausages and bacon this morning on a medium heat with a little oil to stop any sticking(!) the resulting mess still can't be removed after soaking 3 times. To call this pan 'non-stick' is complete nonsense - more like 'stick-resistant' or even 'sticks like no-one's business'. The first few times we used it was ok, but then food started to catch after the second week and now I have rescued our old Tefal out of the bottom of the cupboard until we can muster together another 40 to replace it.

    I'm just sorry my window for returning the item has closed (2 months use!!) and I notice the price has been reduced to 26 at time of writing. I wouldn't care if it was 0.26p with free postage, I wouldn't touch another one of these with an extra-long barge pole.

    I nearly posted another 'stops working after 3 months' review a couple of months ago, but thought I would phone the supplier first for advice. They told me that the non-stick failure was caused by build-up of a visible or near invisible burnt layer and that the pan could be re-conditioned by what they called 'deep cleaning'using something called a 'magic sponge'. They promised to send me an email about this which never arrived. Helpful, not. However, from what the chap told me on the phone, and what I read in other reviews I decided to try the following:

    First the recommendation is to boil some water in the pan to soften any burnt on deposits. Then because I couldn't find a 'magic sponge' locally I used a cream cleanser intended for ceramic hobs to clean the pan, removing as much as possible of the visible 'stain' which had formed. (This was NOT the supplier's recommendation, I got it from a review, so only at your own risk. If you can get a Magic Sponge I would leave this out.) It still stuck badly, but was definitely cleaner. Then I realised that I actually had a 'Magic Sponge' already at the back of a drawer - it is a fine pure white melamine foam block which is sold in some big Tescos (sometimes on a blue foam layer) or in big blocks from JML called Magic Eraser. That was the key. This really does work like magic to remove the almost invisible layer of burnt on stain. After a really obsessive repeated cleaning with that, I could fry an egg and not have it stick, though the surface has never quite got back to that amazing non-stickiness that the pan started with, but it is definitely a usable non-stick again.

    To wash, if there is food stuck on, add a little boiling water to the still-hot pan from the kettle (not cold water on a hot pan) and leave to soak off.

    I don't normally write reviews on here but felt compelled to warn people about the Green Pan range.

    I purchased one of these pans and had to return it after one months use because the non stick stopped working. I got the same pan in exchange and after several months use the second pan developed the same fault.

    With the second pan I made sure followed all instructions regarding use and cleaning to ensure there was nothing I was doing wrong to diminish the coating. I cooked at low temperature with plenty of oil and used a non abrasive sponge to clean. I even put it back in it's original packaging when not in use to protect the surface.

    What seems to happen with these pans is that after a certain number of uses the non stick fails and becomes the very opposite. When first purchased these pans are amazing and by far the best non stick pans I've ever used however after a short time something happens to the coating and rather than being non stick they cling to whatever is in contact with them.

    The first time I used the one of these pans to cook fish it was brilliant after two months however the fish skin clung to the pan and was destroyed by me scraping it off to serve.

    The interesting thing with the Green Pan non stick is that when it fails you can not visibly see any change to the coating. I've had teflon pans in the past which have lost their non stick because the coating has physically come away after years of use. The green pans just seem to get to a point where the properties of the coating change and I don't think is from any fault by the user.

    I recommend to anyone thinking of buying a Green Pan product to avoid and purchase a different brand of pan.
