Neither cast iron nor carbon steel contain any potentially unsafe chemicals, either, and there are no worries about which utensils to use, high heat, or any of the other concerns that come with nonstick coatings. With a background in biomedical sciences and management, Bella also enjoys trying out new gadgets and techniques in her kitchen and does her best to never throw food in the trash! GreenLife cookware is also a Thermolon™-coated nonstick aluminum product, but it's not quite the same as GreenPan. The GreenPan Paris is, in our opinion, the best all-around frying pan GreenPan makes. As far as we know, Paris is the only GreenPan line with stainless lids (on the pieces that have lids). (Prices and links given here are for the grey option.) GreenLife is stamped aluminum, and is thinner than most GreenPan lines, so it will have poorer heating properties. Today, there are hundreds of PTFE coatings manufactured under as many trade names; some of these include Eterna, Eclipse, QuanTanium, HALO, Xylan, Skandia, Dura-Slide, Granite Rock, Granitium, ILAG, and Greblon C2 (yes, Greblon, an early manufacturer of ceramic nonstick, now makes PTFE coatings too). With others, it's hard to tell what's changed from the original formula.

This is hard-anodized aluminum cookware with a Thermolon ceramic non-stick coating that is safe for using with metal utensils. The good news is that all ceramic nonstick coatings are free of PTFE and PFOA (the two chemicals that most people are trying to avoid when buying ceramic nonstick cookware). There is limited research on this topic, but the research indicates that it may be a valid concern. The answer to this question is complicated, as the cookware has both pluses and minuses, as will all mass-produced products. While we have no conclusive information at this time, we'll just say that both types of nonstick cookware are manufactured in large scale, almost exclusively in China, and therefore, both require a good deal of resources to produce; unfortunately, this is hard to avoid when buying any mass-produced product. Although some GreenPans are suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher, the manufacturer recommends hand washing as dishwasher detergents can damage the non-stick properties of the coating. Our theory is that the old lines were selling well, so rather than update best sellers, they added new lines, giving people several options at several price points. PTFE is an inert substance at normal temperatures, however, if it's heated above 450F or so, it can give off toxic fumes. The pans are also suitable for using in the oven at temperatures of up to 600°F and are dishwasher safe, although the manufacturer recommends that you wash by hand. Not recommended, even if mfr says it's safe. The set includes a 1.5 quart and 3 quart covered sauce pans, three open frypans (8″, 9.5″ and 11″), a covered 3 quart sauté pan and a 5.5 quart Dutch oven. It contains no PTFE or PFOA. However, if you're willing to look, you can probably find recycling centers that will take old ceramic nonstick cookware (as well as other cookware). However, the 8 inch/10 inch set is about half the cost of Padova, so you will save quite a bit if you go with Rio. With many of us choosing to avoid cookware and other products that contain PFAS or are manufactured with PFOAs, GreenPan is a leading manufacturer of cookware which is free from not just these, but also lead and cadmium. However, no ceramic coatings are durable enough to tolerate metal utensils, dishwashers, and high heat. Nonstick ceramic cookware has gained a reputation for being healthier and safer than PTFE, and for having fewer environmental concerns. GreenPan cookware is made by The Cookware Company, a Belgian firm founded in 2005 that has manufacturing facilities in China. These fumes can cause flu-like symptoms in humans and are lethal to birds. Why so many lines? They have stainless steel handles that are riveted, and these skillets are also oven safe. This cookware is dishwasher safe and it comes with a lifetime limited warranty. These PFAS are found in cookware and other household products such as water-repellent fabrics and cleaning products. There is also an 8″ and an 11″ open frypan. (And you'd be surprised how quickly a pan can get that hot even on a medium setting. This cookware is oven safe, as are the glass lids, which are safe up to 420°F. About 400F (though repeated exposure to high heat kills nonstick properties). Paris also comes in several buying options, including sets (though, again, we do not recommend buying entire sets of nonstick cookware). The first manufacturer to move away from traditional non-stick back in 2007; GreenPan offers a range of aluminum and hard-anodized aluminum cookware with ceramic coatings which are free from PFOA, PFAS, lead and cadmium. If you really can't figure out the difference and the GreenLife skillet is cheaper, you should probably go with it.
