cuisinart green gourmet cookware style

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.

    This stuff is the best new green nonstick and has perfectly even heat. Several of my frineds own it oo and we have put it through it’s paces many times.

    We are a manufacturer in the USA that has eco-friendly pans that you might consider. When I hear about cookware, such as the new GreenGourmet from Cuisinart, I always think about both the manufacturer and the product.

    The problem with Cuisinart is that althought the product may be green, the manufacturer creates considerable carbon waste by having pans made in China, then shipped to another location (unknown) to be anodized, another location to be coated and then shipped to their warehouse, then shipped to distributors then shipped to retailers then likely shipped to the customer. Talk about waste!

    The pans made at http://www.manpans.com are totally made in one plant in the US: we spin and construct our pans for strength and utility, our hard coat anodizing is type III, and our coating, developed by our engineers, is a water-based, multi-layer, quartz-like finish that is permanently bonded to our pans. We use no PTFE, PFOA or other petrochemicals in our process, in fact the Washington Dept. of Ecology has glowing remarks about how we are an example of clean technology.

    AND we sell direct to consumers. Check it out: http://www.manpans.com and be sure to watch the video.

    Apparently manpans is doing so well that they have nothing better to do than promote their products on webpages about other brands.

    I’ve never seen a commercial for manpans (DUMB NAME!) or EVER heard of them, so I doubt they’re worth a darn.

    I’d never buy them now anyway, after seeing the sleazy way they promote their products!

    My God I love this stuff. I bought just a ten inch skillet and have used it many times now and I am amazed evry time. The thing is so slick that food just slides around it with NO OIL at all. Eggs slide right onto the plate. Nothing I have cooked even tried to stick. I so want the whole set. Thank You Cuisinart for the skillet of My dreams.

    I know it looks like I might work for ManPans when I say this, but I have NEVER heard of them (see my blog and you’ll see videos where we use StoneDine pans…just as recently as last week) and I’m GLAD he mentioned them. I’m obviously shopping for something new and I think I’ll be ordering a set. Thanks, RJ!
