The nonstick surface has been peeling off and we all know that it’s not exactly healthy to eat pieces of your pan along with your food! When I found these GreenLife pots and pans, I knew I had to have them! They had great reviews, they match my turquoise house and kitchen decor perfectly, AND they were the right price at only $79 for the whole set. See my unboxing video ..
I love watching unboxing videos and I love making them! I am usually too impatient to wait until I can set up the camera and film it though. I usually want everything just perfect. WELL. I just went for it – weird hair, bad lighting, and all. #KeepinItReal
My Thoughts After One Use:
I cooked spaghetti in the largest and smallest pots last night. They didn’t stain! There was a little bit of sauce residue left after washing but it came off pretty easily with a drying cloth. I read the Amazon reviews and instructions that came with them very carefully. Apparently, extra virgin olive oil will leave a film on the nonstick surface, so I am going to try to use that sparingly.
Cooking with oils and fats: We recommend to use oil or butter. Remember, some oils and fats burn at lower temperatures. Use oils and fats that have a high smoke point, like refined olive oil, peanut oil, corn oil and (clarified) butter. Do not use extra virgin olive oil as it cannot withstand high heating and will leave a thin carbonized layer on your non-stick.
So far, I really like these! Only time will tell how they hold up. I am planning to follow the care and cleaning instructions (low heat / oil recommendation) as closely as possible to avoid them going downhill like my last set! The healthy ceramic thermalon coating seems like a major upgrade from tephlon! We will see! And hey, they can be put in the dishwasher so that’s a win!
