A nonstick skillet is definitely a kitchen essential, but traditional Teflon can be bad for the environment and for your health! Cuisinart has the solution with their new Green Gourmet Cookware. The water-based (as opposed to solvent-based) Ceramica nonstick surface is PTFE/PFOA-free and itís manufactured using lower energy techniques to reduce carbon emissions. Cuisinart Green Gourmet Cookware meets FDA and RoHS standards for environmentally sound products.
Cuisinart Green Gourmet Skillets are made of 70% recycled hard-anodized aluminum for superior heat conductivity. The riveted, stay-cool handle is brushed stainless steel and the scratch-resistant Ceramica surface will not peel or crack. Green Gourmet Skillets are oven and broiler safe. We recommend avoiding stainless utensils (silicone and wood are great choices) and washing by hand with mild detergent to extend the life of any nonstick cookware. Limited lifetime warranty.
