Greenpan's healthy ceramic non-stick cookware is manufactured without PFOA and contains no lead or cadmium. The Thermolon Expert 2 coating is healthy, safe and does not contain any toxic chemicals or persistant pollutants. Thermolon is a better heat conductor than traditional coatings. This results in superb searing and crispy frying. Ergonomic stay-cool bakelite handles and a ceramic coated black exterior for easy cleaning are a great feature of Greenpan cookware.
