Did you know that teflon coating when heated to high temperatures, the released fumes are proven to be lethal to small pets like birds! On humans, these fumes can potentially harm the respiratory tract and cause nausea and headaches. So, when you overheat your pan you damage not only your pan but possibly also your health.
GreenPan™ does not use PTFE, but brings with Thermolon™ non-stick technology a healthy alternative to the market. Thermolon™ is heat resistant up to high temperatures. This means that GreenPan™ has an extra safety feature; if you overheat your pan, even up to 450°C/850°F, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel!
Their non-stick pots and pans are the first to be made with a non-stick coating made of minerals instead of plastics! I am really really wanting to try these pans and now I have a chance and so do you! 4 lucky organic girl readers are going to win a Green Pan Montreal Pan!
This contest is open to US & Canadian residents, and closes April 19th! Everybody should run over and enter! Good luck!
