From The Manufacturer

Utilizing STONEHENGE — a stone-derived coating from Germany, the Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri is the world’s leading frying pan, delivering non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of APEO and PFOA, and the lesser known chemicals NMP and NEP. Conventional pans often achieve their non-stick performance with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), a potential carcinogen which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’, and APEO (Alkylphenol ethoxylates), which are under restricted use in Germany due to environmental concerns about their poor biodegradability and toxicity in the food chain. According to the EPA, once ingested, PFOA is capable of remaining in people for a very long time, and has been shown to cause developmental and other adverse effects in laboratory animals. Likewise, European studies have shown that APEO may be toxic to aquatic life, and has the potential to act as endocrine disrupters. With the Stone Earth Pan’s stone-derived coating from Germany, no such controversial chemicals are ever passed on to you, or released into the environment. The Stone Earth Pan utilizes an inert coating that is applied using a water based Sol Gel Technique which is free of the lesser known but potentially harmful chemicals NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) and NEP (N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone), often found in traditional cookware. In addition to being free of PFOA, APEO, NMP and NEP, the Stone Earth Pan is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Stone Earth Pan consistently renders cleaning a breeze. The Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat-resistant silicone-coated handle. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. STONEHENGE coating made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final pan assembly in China.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The coating is scratch-resistant so that it is exceptionally durable and super-easy to clean.
Needless to say, people greatly appreciate Ozeri’s effort in making their frying pan environmentally friendly and safe for human health. A lot of praises are also given to the pan’s heat conduction capabilities and how it is so easy to clean with just a few wipes with a damp cloth.
Excellent nonstick performance

What reviewers didn't like

Requires conditioning and extra care to keep the interior intact
There are two issues with this pan. The first is the price, but given its strong construction and premium materials, it’s actually not as expensive as you may assume
There is one concern that we see every now and then, though, and that is about how the center of the pan kind of raises over time, making liquids such as eggs all go towards the sides when cooking.
Poor finishing
It doesn’t come with a lid
