Yes, we recommend using a little oil or butter. Because of the excellent heat conductivity of your pan and the Thermolon™ layer, food and oil can carbonize very rapidly. So always cook on low to medium heat and use only short high heat for searing or browning.
All our stainless steel or multilayer ranges are suitable for induction. Also, several of our aluminium cookware ranges are induction suitable. Always check your product packaging to verify suitability for induction. More info is available on our product page.
Induction stovetops work differently than traditional stovetops (gas, electric, halogen,...). They create a magnetic field which heats the cookware directly. The best way to test if your current cookware is induction compatible is to hold a magnet to the base. If it clings to it, it is induction ready!
Yes, you can put your pan in the oven without any worries when it has stainless steel handles. If your pan has stainless steel handles with a silicone insert they are oven-safe up to 250°C. When your pan has Bakelite (mostly black-colored) handles they are only oven-safe up to 180°C. Lids in Stainless steel can be used without any worries as well, but glass lids are oven safe up to 220°C. Always check the packaging to make sure.
We recommend handwash: just wash it with a little soapy water and clean it with a soft dishcloth or sponge. The non-stick properties of all ceramic-type non-stick coatings slowly fade with repeated dishwasher use.
Thermolon™ is a better heat conductor than traditional non-stick coatings. We recommend that you cook on a lower heat setting than you would do with a traditional pan. This will prevent the food from burning. After use, always clean the pan according to our Care & Use Instructions.
Not anymore! GreenPan has revolutionized non-stick pans. The Thermolon™ non-stick is a ceramic coating, which conducts heat excellently, allowing you to sear and fry your food with a crisp and tasty result.
Technically even water or table salt are chemicals. Nothing can be made without use of chemicals of some description. What is important, is whether the chemicals are harmful or not. GreenPan product do not contain any chemicals harmful to your health and will never do so.
