A Look at the Cuisinart Green Gourmet Eco-Friendly Cookware Line
The Green Gourmet line is an eco-friendly cookware line that uses a nonstick technology named Ceramica which is exclusively owned by Cuisinart. The Ceramica technology is a coating that is ceramic based instead of petroleum based, which helps conserve oil supplies. The coating is also applied at half the temperature of other nonstick cookware so it requires less energy consumption to make. The Ceramica coating does not use PTFE(Teflon) or PFOA(Perfluorooctanoic acid). PFOA is also known as C8 and is used to bond teflon to some cookware’s surfaces. PFOA is an example of a carcinogen said to be released when teflon reaches high temperatures.
Since this line is hard anodized, it has high heat conductivity and requires less energy to reach desired cooking temperatures. The handles used on Cuisinart Green Gourmet cookware are made from 70% recycled stainless steel that is riveted to the cookware to provide sturdiness and longevity. The handles are designed to stay cool when being used on the stovetop. The Green Gourmet Line is both oven and broiler safe. This is a great option to have for dishes that are prepared on the stovetop and then need to be put in the oven to brown.
Not only is this cookware line environmentally friendly, the packaging is too. This cookware’s packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is even printed with soy ink.
The Cuisinart Green Gourmet environmentally friendly cookware line comes with a lifetime warranty.
