I found the perfect omelet pan! It is not just for omelets, but the 8″ Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan is perfect for a 2 or 3 egg omelet. It also works well for frying, poaching or sautéing single servings of just about anything.
I received one 8″ Green Earth Frying pan from Ozeri for review.
My Impressions of Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan:
The Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan is a beautiful green color. The pan seems very substantial and durable for an 8″ pan. I initially thought the handle seems a little skimpy as it is lighter that the pan. With use, I haven’t had any issue with the handle yet. Ozeri boasts a lifetime guaranty so if I find the handle is a problem, they stand by their product.
Shortly after receiving the pan, I made an omelet. I was impressed! I put only a tiny amount of oil in the pan and the omelet cooked perfectly with no sticking. If you notice the picture of the inside of the pan, this picture was taken after I removed the cooked omelet from the pan. I was impressed at how clean it looked so I took a picture.
I was impressed with how easy it is to clean the Green Earth Pan.

About the Non-Stick Surface, According to Ozeri (Quote):
Ozeri is one of the world’s first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional cookware and other ceramic cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’. With the Green Earth Pan’s GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature – not a laboratory.
I hope to one day, replace my other frying pans with Green Earth pans in the other available sizes (10″ and 12″). I recommend the Ozeri Green Earth pans based on my experience using the 8″ version for a couple weeks. (If my opinion changes, I will update this review). Also, because it requires so little cooking oil, I think the Green Earth Pan is an excellent tool for healthy cooking! I find my use of oil is based more on personal preference than necessity when using this pan.
