I've been thinking about buying a ceramic frying pan for someone as a
gift. You've probably all seen the tv commercials for that Green one
which I think is called Orgreenic or something like that.
Anyhow, it looks like it's good, but I dont believe commercials since
they always exaggerate or even lie.
I've noticed that they sell that TV brand at Walmart now, but also sell
similar (but less costly) pans. All are called "ceramic".
Have any of you used any of these? Are they as good as they look on the
commercials? Any bad points or problem issues?
I think this would be a good gift for someone who likes to cook, and
actually I've thought of buying one of them for myself, since I tend to
burn stuff onto pans and then I have to spend hours cleaning it off, or
tossing the pan....
I never found teflon pans worth much. Food burned onto them too, and
they can release dangerous fumes if they are overheated too. Not to
mention they scratch and are then useless.
Which brings up one last question, do the ceramic pans require those
special no-scratch plastic utensils, or can a regular metal spatula or
other utensil be used on them?
I'm just looking for feedback, good - bad - or otherwise!
