My OrGreeniC Pan Test

I love "As Seen on TV" items.
If you can't figure out a good gift, 
go to Walgreen's TV aisle.
Pick almost anything- 
except exercise stuff.

My husband brought home the OrGreeniC pan
Not necessarily because I need a gift
it's just that our favorite breakfast egg pan is Teflon,
at least part of it still is.  The other part is scratched off somewhere.
 Why not try this one without Teflon. 


It worked like a charm.
You have to season it properly first.
  Not a problem, we season
our cast iron too.

My husband did not use any oils or butter with his eggs.
He added a ton of cheese too.
When his eggs were finished they came right out.
He needed a spatula to turn them,
they were a little grabby but nothing stuck to the pan
where if he would have used another pan, 
it would have been burnt on.

I  cooked my eggs but used butter,
for the flavor, not for the non-stickiness.
I  make more of an omelette but without filling.
So it's flat and just sits and cooks- quickly.
Then I flip it over and turn off the heat.

Mine just slid right out of the pan.
I used two eggs so I couldn't "blow" it out
like on the commercials, but I can see that
it could happen.

I have read some terrible reviews about this product
where they had food sticking badly.
I don't know if they didn't season it properly,
used too high of a heat or intentionally let it burn 
but I can't complain about this.

It does take a few more minutes to get as hot as   
my older pans but we're talking less than a minute.

As far as I'm concerned, another great TV product.
It will sit beneath the cabinet that holds my 
Smart Spin containers (another winner in my estimate)
and the Ove Gloves I cannot do without.

I like butter for frying eggs too. I'm sticking to my diet pretty good these days though (I have an enlarged heart chamber, but diet and blood pressure pills have brought it down quite a bit), so I use Egg Beater and Pam makes a butter flavored spray that's not too bad. No green pans though ... yet.

Thanks, I was wondering about those pans. I just use cast iron but it would be good for my wife as she can stick water to a pan.

Glad to see a review on this skillet. I've been wondering about that one.
I may have to make a trip to the Walgreens

We have one of these and love it. I use mine all the time. We have had it for about 2 months with no problems.
