I was super excited to get this pan after all I had heard. I’ve taken care of it better than any pan I’ve ever owned. Never used metal utensils, never leave it dirty, etc. 2 months later, I’m back to cooking on non-stock pans I bought 10 years ago) that I was planning to replace with Green Pan) because they’re still more non-stick. The silver color that’s supposed to stay bright forever using their patented “technology” was marked after a few weeks and now as you can see from the image looks terrible. But that’s just aesthetics. The cooking surface lost its non-stick properties after about a month. The other attached image is from fried rice made today. It’s total mess and the most frustrating pan I’ve ever owned. Honestly don’t understand where all these positive reviews are coming from. 🤷🏻♂️
I loved this pan when I first received it in January. It was sparkly white, and everything cooked perfectly evenly and slid out of the pan effortlessly. Less than a month later after searing a steak in the pan it was ruined. The first picture, without the food, shows tons of scrubbing with barkeeper's friend and a paper towel, after the seared steak. It is permanently darkened and will never be sparkly white again. Tonight I sauteed some chard with olive oil, preheated in the pan, and was left with this sticky brown mess (2nd picture) that is still a mess after scrubbing with a sponge and dish soap. I'll let it soak overnight and try barkeeper's friend again tomorrow, but if I can't saute greens without this much effort for clean up the pan is virtually useless and needs to be thrown out. What a waste of money. I would not purchase a GreenPan again. The Amazon description said it could handle high heat and I hoped it would at least last longer than 1 steak. I contacted the manufacturer through Amazon after the steak incident and never received a response.
I was apprehensive about spending this amount of the pan. I’m buying a non stick once a year because they wear out regardless of what it says about lasting a “lifetime”. I try to get non toxic and all that while still working well.
I do not regret buying it. It s a heavy, quality made pan, bolted tightly and securely at the handle. I’ve had so many pans losses at the handle. I don’t think this one can come off or loosen at all. The non stick is great, as all are in the beginning. I can cook actual shredded cheese in here to make a crisp and it turns out perfect. A lot of the oil comes out and is left in the pan, so low fat? 😝
Anyway, great purchase. It seems like it will last a lot longer than others I’ve purchased previously.
I really thought I believed in Green Pan for quality, safety and design. In fact, I had purchased a number of different sizes in the Green Pan line. After only a few months, I noticed that the lip of the pan was chipped & scratched even though I was very careful not to bang a utensil on the lip and used care when washing. The only thing I did do was use a Green Pan glass lid occasionally, which may have caused the scratching. With that, I decided I wasn't going to deal with this issue any longer. I got rid of all my Green Pans and use only stainless steel or carbon steel pans. No more non-stick cookware for me!
This pan is working out but one thing I do not like is the edge of the pan curving inward. So when you are trying to turn something using a spatula against the side of the pan, it's hard to do. Same with when you are trying to scoop something out of the pan by pushing it against the wall using a spatula, the curve actually makes the item fall back into the pan instead. Really weird and annoying.
Also, the pan is kinda heavy for the handle it comes with - I find sometimes I need to use both hands. However, it is definitely easy to clean with nothing sticking to it so far.
This is our second GreenPan, and both of them work amazingly well on our new induction range.*** Heat distribution is excellent, and the nonstick finish looks like it will wear like iron. Even though the literature says it is metal utensil-safe, I only use plastic and silicone utensils. I really like the look of this pan, as well, and I plan to always wash it by hand to keep it beautiful. ***PLEASE NOTE: Some of the less expensive pans made by GreenPan have an aluminum core. Those pans are not magnetic and will not work on an induction cooktop. This one, however, is great for that use.
Easily one of the best non-stick pans. I purposely used it over a couple of months including heavy usage like frying fish. This pan heats nearly uniformly and I had no issues even with really thin bacon slices. It’s really easy to clean as well which is the biggest plus. Don’t have to season it. I am impressed. Waiting for 6 months of usage and if it still performs Like it has I am buying the whole set
Works great at first, but do not expect this pan to last. After about 4 months of use, the ceramic coating starts to chip off. The pan goes from being a non stick pan to a super stick pan. Total waste of money.
I used a paper napkin to turn my rotis and this pan lost it's coating within a couple uses. I ordered another one - if even that one loses the ceramic coating, I won't buy greenpan ever again unless its directly from the vendor.
