Ozeri is a specialty manufacturer of digital lifestyle products for the modern home. They began as a supplier to the destination club market; spanning from vacation residences in the industry, fractional residences, timeshares and condo/hotel/apartments. Their products are considered pedigree for the markets they serve where five-star residences are matched with the finest kitchen, bath, entertainment and personal amenities. I have been honored to have tested out several of their products from bathroom scales and pedometers to glassware and cooking ware.
Ozeri’s cookware is the Green Earth Pan line which touts GREBLON; an ultra-safe, 100% PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non-stick coating from Germany. Remember, the coating is from Germany but, the pan itself is from China. What does that truly mean though? Well, I went looking into it myself and found the following:
SOL-GEL TECHNOLOGY ~ Since 2008 WEILBURGER Coatings has also been an expert for ceramic coating solutions based on sol-gel technology.
An overview of the ceramic GREBLON® coatings: Extreme hardness, High level of scratch and abrasion resistance, Shining and brilliant surfaces in all colors, Easy to clean, High level of temperature resistance, Fast heating-up and Guaranteed suitability for food contact.
Ceramic GREBLON® coatings are among the few ceramic coatings which have repeatedly been rated “good” on both aluminum and stainless steel by LGA (Nuremberg, Germany).
Stiftung Warentest 1/2011 ~ The German consumer safety group tested 19 frying pans for its 1/2011 magazine. Test winner: GREBLON® CK2, ETM test magazine 03/2012 and Three times top marks for function and scratch resistance.
I have made numerous dishes in this pan making it not only a frying pan but, have made some amazing pasta dishes too. Perfect size for a family of four to create a one-pot meal in with a bit extra for lunch the next day. Even though it is a decent sized pan, the weight belies the look; not too heavy, just right and the silicone handle makes it easy to transport from stove to table.

What I truly like about the 12” frying pan though is the elevated texture of the interior; really able to get a nice bit of char on food and it is extremely easy to clean off. After many uses I have had no scratches nor issues with the exterior flaking off. Well-made so far but, I too have read other reviews and it seems the 1-year mark comes up a lot. If any issues shall arise I assure you I will update my review accordingly.
Disclosure: I received this 12” Green Earth Frying Pan directly from Moderna Housewares LLC however; this in no way influenced my review but, I chose to write this review and was under no obligation to do so. I only write honest reviews regardless of whether I purchased a product at full price, at a discount, or received it free.
