Cooking Green with Cuisinart’s GreenGourmet Skillet

Thanks to new green cookware options you can say goodbye to toxic Teflon pans filled with dangerous chemicals that off-gas into the air and can possibly leach into your food.

Cuisinart’s line of non-stick cookware is PTFE and PFOA free, which means that it contains none of the nasty chemicals that Teflon and similar non-stick coatings are formulated with.

Cuisinart’s GreenGourmet pans are petroleum free, have a hard anodized interior, an aluminum alloy core, and a Cuisinart Ceramica (TM) interior which is what makes the pan non-stick.
So what does all this mean? Keep reading to find out.

The Green Gourmet line by Cuisinart is very green. It is eco-friendly in many ways: the pans are constructed with energy savings in mind, the anodized material provides superior heat conductivity which requires less energy to heat, the stainless steel handle is made from 70% recycled stainless steel and it stays cool even while the pan is super hot. The best and most important part is the non-stick surface. No toxins here - it is actually made from ceramic, which means no petroleum-based chemicals.
