Most of our frying pans are made from aluminium. Aluminium is a lightweight product with excellent heat conducting properties, only bettered by gold and copper. This makes it a perfect material for frying pans, which need even heating and good control for the best cooking results. As aluminium reacts to acids (such as citric acids or the acids in tomatoes) we need to protect it from contact with food. We do this either by coating the aluminium or by anodizing it. The ceramic non-stick coating used on all GreenPan non-stick cookware is Thermolon. It is a coating that is manufactured without any Aluminium, PFAS, PFOA, PTFE, Lead, Cadmium, or other toxic chemicals. The outside of the pan has either been coated with a Thermolon coating or it has been anodized, causing the aluminium to form a hard non-reactive surface.
In summary, no Aluminium comes into contact with your food when cooking with our products!
