The Stainless Steel All-In-One Sauce Pan by Ozeri, 100% APEO & PFOA-Free
Featuring ETERNA -- a safe and durable non-stick coating developed in the USA, the Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri is the world’s first stainless steel frying pan to achieve non-stick perfection without using PFOA or APEO -- harmful chemicals often found in traditional cookware. Conventional sauce pans achieve their non-stick performance with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), 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. 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 Stainless Steel Earth Sauce Pan's ETERNA coating, even under high temperatures, no such controversial chemicals are ever passed on to you, or released into the environment. This is because the Stainless Steel Earth Sauce Pan utilizes a safer non-stick coating that is completely free of PFOA, and far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. The Stainless Steel Earth Sauce Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel with TriPly construction, delivering the ultimate in heat conductivity. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat-resistant handle and side helper handle for safe and comfortable handling. The Stainless Steel All-In-One Sauce Pan is elegantly finished in a polished mirror exterior, and includes a tempered glass lid with a steam-release vent and heat-resistant knob. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. ETERNA coating made by Whitford USA. Sauce pan assembled in China.
