GreenPan™ Review and Giveaway - 4 Winners!!! Ends April 19 , 2010

Jascor Housewares Inc. Is the Canadian Distributor for GreenPan™ And are also sponsoring this wonderful Giveaway here at Organic Girl.
 GreenPan™ is 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.
At GreenPan™ they 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.
At GreenPan they 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.
  • Their 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.
  • They 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’. They 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 and 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.


GreenPan™ has several product categories providing you a wide choice of excellent performing and state-of the art products.
Their products categories are divided into different collections and these are named after international environmental conventions. They choose conventions that have aimed to make the earth a more sustainable place as we thought that suited us and what our products are about.

The ambitious goal of GreenPan™ was to create a new, healthy cooking experience in non-stick cookware. In 2007 GreenPan™ was ready to take off and succeeded in bringing to the market the first healthy, eco-friendly non-stick pots and pans with the revolutionary new PTFE/PFOA-free coating.
 For Review my family was super lucky Jascor Housewares Inc. , the Canadian Distributor of GreenPan™ sent Two 28cm Stockholm Alu. from the Induction Series for Review and One 24 cm Montreal Frying Pan for Review.
 ok I was beyond thrilled!!
I cook ALOT! :)

The 28cm Stockhom is a work of art. It is perfectly balanced with a smooth handle that makes maneuvering the pan effortless. My hubby was a chef for years and these pans are higher quality than he is used to in the restaurants.  He made over easy eggs with no oil or butter and they just slide around the pan. The crisp is perfect and rarely is oil or butter needed in the pan. They are deep with nice sides for making deeper dishes or baking meals in the oven.  This pan maked the nicest golden brown Fritatta I have ever made and it was gone so fast. If you need a new frying pan and non stick and enviromentally friendly are on your list than Green Pan is a must in any kitchen.

Open Frying Pan
  • Contemporary designed cookware for easy cleaning.
  • Elegant stainless steel handles with comfortable grip.
  • Heavy stainless steel lids for energy safe cooking.Thanks to the Thermolon™ technology, the coating acts like an insulator that retains heat, moisture and flavors. 
  • These are sealed in and give you great results when preparing food.

 What makes the GreenPan™ products so Amazing
*Pot and fry pan handles come in stay cool bakelite or oven-safe stainless steel materials. By using the latest welding and polishing techniques they can bring ergonomically designed handles. High quality rivets, screws and welding techniques assure a safe and comfortable grip. Their cast stainless steel handles are made from premium raw recycled stainless steel; reducing our impact to the environment.
*GreenPan™ products come in different high-end materials and shapes. The design and construction provide stability and perfect heat transfer to your cooking utensil. For aluminium bodies we use quality recycled material.  The raw material is cleaned, melted and re-used.  New eco-friendly techniques in the construction of the pans also give a new dimension to cookware.
 *At GreenPan™ they use the latest techniques to construct the pan base, because they know this is the secret of excellent cookware. The best techniques provide the most efficient energy transfer, which is of major importance for eco-friendly cookware. Special forging techniques give extra strength to the cooking utensil and provide perfect heat conduction. To make our aluminium cookware induction compatible, they forge the induction plates on the cooking utensil. The strongest in the market! A lot of other aluminium cookware available on the market get pressed induction bases which can come loose after a while.
I was also sent a 24 cm Montreal Pan for Review!
I love this pan so much! This is your crape pan, your omelette pan,  your everything pan  that doesnt need a big frying pan . Egg in the Hole- My kids love these alot!! It is amazing how well this cooks.  So evenly with out burning , you get a great crisp to the foods your are cooking with this wonderful pan. Another must have in the kitchen arsenal.

Jascor Housewares Inc. is generoulsy Giving Four Organic Girl Entrants a 28 cm Montreal Pan!!

This range is named after the Montreal convention: 
 The heavy gauge aluminium and the Thermolon™ interior provide perfect heat distribution, allowing even cooking and excellent browning, without the risk of any hot spots.
Easy recycling: handles have ingenious design to make it possible to dissemble the handle and to fix it on to a new body. In that way it receives a second life.
