Thermolon™ is the world’s first and best ceramic nonstick coating. All GreenPan uses this revolutionary coating. We’ve created seven generations of Thermolon™. Each is manufactured without forever chemicals and plastics like PFAS and PFOA, and it does not contain any lead or cadmium.
Also, are green pans worth it?
Overall Impression. The GreenPan is highly recommended for cooking and clean-up proved to be super quick. As for other notables, it’s nice to know this pan is PTFE-free and PFOA-free and there were fewer emissions during the manufacturing process.
Thereof, can you use olive oil on GreenPan?
“We always recommend using a little bit of oil or butter when using your GreenPan. It’s good to note that Extra Virgin Olive Oil and oil sprays carbonize very quickly when the pan is heated and should be avoided when cooking with ceramic non-stick.
Do GreenPan handles get hot?
The handle does get hot, & a sleeve takes care of that. However, it does tend to tilt it a little up off the burner, so for even heat, leave the sleeve off until you’re ready to lift the pan. Usually, by the time you have some food actually cooking in it, that will hold the pen flat even with the sleeve on it.
And PTFE is soft and will wear down eventually even if you use plastic/wooden/silicone utensils. I have been using the 12-inch GreenPan for 18 months and counting, using the pan as often a possible to simulate years of hard wear and tear.
The most important thing is that ceramic is more non-stick than Teflon and you can cook things like eggs without needing oil. Ceramic is an excellent heat conductor, even when used on irons; the surface on the pan gets hot evenly. Another improvement of ceramic technology is the easiness of cleaning.
Ceramic coated cookware is considered a safer non-stick alternative to Teflon. However, it also triggers some health concerns. Ceramic coating can be damaged easily which can bring the metal in direct contact with food. In the case of some metal alloys, this can be potentially harmful to health.

Review: GreenPan Chatham
The Chatham collection is a more durable take on Greenpan’s base model (Lima), and is priced slightly more expensive at MSRP. Regardless of what nonstick cookware you choose, the durability of the food release agent used on the cook surface will probably be the first thing to go.
GreenPan is a Belgian brand with an international reputation. It’s the brainchild of two school friends: Jan Helskens and Wim De Veirman. Upon discovering that traditional non-stick pans released toxins when overheated and used PFOA during the manufacture of the coating, they set out to create a new alternative.
If your food starts to stick in a ceramic pan, it means the non-stick coating has eroded. This can make the pan greasy and difficult to clean. … Using inappropriate cooking utensils: Avoid using metal or sharp utensils such as forks and knives on your ceramic pan as they will damage its coating.
Carbonization is Sticky
Here’s why. Overheating + oils= carbonization (a.k.a. those little spots that cause your food to stick to the pan). … Pour out the water and place the pan on a sturdy surface such as a wooden cutting board. Carefully use a restoring sponge (melamine) on the warm surface.
