A Cooking "greenover" with ScanPan Cookware



Do you remember the great Teflon scare of '05 or '06 (that dates are kind of fuzzy). The buzz began even earlier, but it came to a head then. The pans that we were all using to cook healthier with (Teflon coated pans) were potentially making us sick. I remember reading a study that at 1000 degrees, Teflon breaks down to a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB, and a chemical analog of the WWII nerve gas phosgene.

So much for low-fat cooking.

Many of us - myself included went back to the olden days and started using cast iron cookware or re-mortgaged the mansion for a full set of All-Clad. Still, there was nothing that was REALLY non-stick after Teflon. I found myself using more oil and butter in my cooking, because there was nothing that was both non-stick and practical (you could pull a muscle just lifting my cast iron skillet).


Last month I was invited to a webinar about Green Cooking and a new titanium surfaced pan called the ScanPan. While I watched and participated in the webinar, the pan that they sent me to use was the thing that got me to realize that I could go back to cooking the way I liked (with little to no extra fat) and NOT PUT MY FAMILY IN DANGER.  

ScanPan starts with traditional aluminum cookware (which is great for even cooking) and then coats it with a ceramic-titanium coating making it HARD, non-stick and the surface actually becomes ONE with the pan - so that you never have to worry about particles flaking or scraping off (no need to use a plastic spatula). Basically, you're getting the best of both worlds - even cooking and a non-stick surface.

PLUS - ScanPan comes with a full lifetime warranty.

I've been using mine and I can really tell the difference. I'm not the most careful cook, and sometimes I put the burner up higher than I should. I've been using the pan for a MONTH and it's been consistent and I haven't scraped anything off or burned my food. Because it's non-stick - clean up is simple (and it's even dishwasher safe).

ScanPan is made in Denmark, but I've found it sold at some of my favorite cookware stores like Sur la Table, Williams Sonoma, as well as Amazon.com and from Scanpan.com. Are they cheap? NO - they're priced just where you'd expect good pots and pans to be - but since these come with that lifetime warranty, these may just be the last set of pots and pans that you buy.

My take? I like them, and since I'm trying to go green as much as I can - these pots and pans can be a part of my plan!

Thank you to ScanPan for providing me with a pan to try and Big Green Cookbook as well as this giveaway. I was in no way compensated for this post and all opinions are strictly my own.
