For something that’s intended for frequent use, it’s unfortunate how often nonstick pans are weak, flimsy, and temperamental. Whether you’re simply frying an egg, sautéing some vegetables, or searing a piece of salmon, these common structural inefficiencies undermine nonstick’s primary attraction: making cooking easier. While a nonstick pan’s frequent inadequacy is disappointing, it doesn’t have to be the norm. Enter: the Greenpan Ceramic Nonstick Wooden-Handled Fry Pan, a piece of nonstick cookware that’s actually sturdy enough to endure the rigors of everyday kitchen life.
The pan’s structural integrity stems from its thoughtfully designed components. Its wood handle is carbonized, a process that entails heat-treating the wood until it becomes significantly stronger. (Also, the handle’s waterproof and—because it’s wood—won’t get hot.) The cooking surface is composed of a thick-forged, anodized (this protects against corrosion) aluminum core and a diamond-infused nonstick ceramic coating. These sturdy components give the pan a comforting heft that is often absent in traditional nonsticks—a sentiment echoed by the review below:
The perks of a durable and properly hefty pan extend well beyond the “substantial” hand-feel mentioned above. For one, the pan doesn’t require you to avoid using metal utensils when cooking. Although we recommend using something softer than metal to optimize longevity, the pan will not scratch, chip, and crumble by way of stainless steel tongs. Of course, this also makes washing the pan easier—you don’t need to fret about finding the softest sponge to clean this thing, you can just use the best, softest thing you’ve got.
Of course, don’t just take our word for it. Read the many, many positive reviews our community members have left for this pan. Here’s our favorite:
