Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan


Ozeri Green Earth Frying PanOzeri is fast becoming a household name for many products ranging from room fans to frying pans to kitchen scales and so much more. The unique quality about Ozeri that I like is they don’t spend a lot on advertising and then pad their customer’s cost. They rely more on word of mouth. I received the Ozeri Green Earth frying pan free of charge for the purpose of this review.

The pan came in a fairly large box with a lot of brown paper stuffed inside to keep it from bouncing around inside. The pan arrived free of any damage or defects. My package arrived just shy of two weeks from when their representative informed me I would be receiving one.

First I will go over what Ozeri has to say about their product and then get on with my experience. There are a few great things about this pan that you want to know. Ozeri is 100% PTFE and PFOA free, instead using GREBLON – safe ceramic coating from Germany. This means no toxic fumes are ever released, no matter how high a temperature you cook on.

If a film ever develops, Ozeri says it may be due to oil or food residue build up, It can easily be removed by rubbing the pan’s surface with lemon juice or vinegar then rinse thoroughly.

You can also use this pan in the oven – up to 350 degrees! If you get your meal done early, pop it in the oven to keep it warm.

 What’s in the Box

In the box were care instructions and a green pad.

I think this green pad is pretty awesome. It is to lay inside your pan for storing. That way, if you have to stack pans, your Ozeri pan will not get damaged.

Cooking With Ozeri

Ozeri cooking eggThe first thing I wanted to see was if you can really cook an egg with no oil or butter or anything. I will say I seasoned the pan per the instructions. It called for 1 teaspoon of oil and wiping away the excess but really that was too much. I ended up wiping away most of it.

I cooked it on just above medium heat and waited for the pan to heat up, which only took a few minutes. The egg cooked beautifully in the Green Earth Pan. It did not stick and I had no trouble at all flipping my egg over. It only took a couple more minutes and the other side was done and yolk still runny – just how I like it.

But, I didn’t want the egg to be the only example I showed. I have also cooked a dish I call Hook-Up. A concoction that has become a family favorite in our house. You can find the recipe here.

I cooked ground sausage in the Ozeri Green Earth frying pan with no trouble. It didn’t stick, burn or have a lot of grease. My onions and greens peppers came out perfect. I really couldn’t be happier with this pan and plan to buy the 8 and 10 inch as well.

Have you cooked with the Ozeri 12 inch Green Earth Frying Pan? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.


  1. I actually never heard of Ozeri before, but they seem to produce great quality pans. I also never knew that frying pans released any chemicals and its great to know that there is a solution for it in the form of this pan. You actually get so much for just 25 bucks and the inlay is a great idea as I don’t know how many non stick pans I’ve worn out just by poor management. I also checked out your Hook up dish and I must say that I will definitely be trying out that one.

    • Hi Jason,
      It really is a pretty awesome pan. I look forward to completing the set as well as buying the wok. Yes, there are a lot of non-stick pans out on the market that have a coating that contains chemicals. So when you add heat to cook, you run the chance of emitting toxic fumes and chemicals. I hope you like the recipe. Please do let me know how it turns out.

  2. Thanks for this review – I’ve heard of the item but I was unsure about it’s gimmick status ( if you know what I mean! ). One question though – what is the non-stick situation like with the pan? I’ve had awful trouble with pan’s degrading and becoming sticky in the past.

    • Hi Chris,
      I also have always worried about pans non-stick surface degrading over time. With the Ozeri Green Earth pan, if you do get a little build up all you have to do is use a little lemon juice and it comes right off! I truly love this pan!

  3. hi Angela!
    I had never heard of Ozeri products or frying pans. I guess I am a bit behind here product wise! And it is not because I do not cook, I love cooking! That being said, this pan seems awesome! I cannot believe nothing is required when cooking an egg! that’s good technology. Finding a good non stick frying pan is hard but this seems like one heck of a good choice!

    • Hi Emily,
      It really does not require anything but the initial light coating. No more eggs sticking when you cook. My daughter made french toast in it and said it was the best experience she ever had making french toast! lol

  4. Hi Angela, this definitely looks worth investigating and I like the idea that you can put the whole pan in the stove to keep warm and no danger of the handle melting. Excuse my ignorance – but what is PTFE and PFOA ? *Mandy

    • Hi Mandy,
      It really is an awesome pan! I cook everything in it. And it is not ignorance 😉 PTFE is Polytetrafluoroethylene and PFOA is Perfluorooctanoic acid. Both are harsh chemicals many companies use to manufacture non-stick cookware. I worry about these things as time wears on the pan and bits start to peel away. I don’t want any of that in my food!

  5. Wow! I never knew there was so much science that goes into making frying pans!

    I love the look of the Ozeri pan, and think it would look good in any modern kitchen. The size looks good too, especially for fried rice dishes that always seem to escape my frying pan! This looks like it could hold a decent size portion so you could cook for a few people instead of cooking smaller portions and having to keep it warm to serve together.

    Do you know if the make a lid or cover too? It would be handy for long simmer dishes I do on the stove top 🙂

    • Ozeri is definitely awesome! The size of this pan is great, I’m amazed at how much it holds sometimes. 🙂 Ozeri does make lids for their pans and the 12 inch will fit the frying pan and the WOK.
