Like any person who is looking to invest in a diet program, price is definitely something that you should consider. For some people, Bistro MD may be too pricey and not affordable. I would purchase again! The great thing about ceramic is that you have to use very little oil, clean up is a breeze and no toxins are leaching into your food. And when you use silicone or wood utensils you should really never see any chips or nicks. I did invest in a few pieces from Ceramcor.
I purchased the Large Skillet because of the tall sides and the fact it had a lid. I do clean cooking and eating and have used my pan daily since before Christmas. I do have one very small scratch from using tongs to pick up a piece of chicken, but other than that it works perfectly. I purchased a smaller one later and have had no problems with that one at all.
I only use coconut oil in my pans and now no more regular tongs only silicone tongs and utensils and always hand washing. I am now looking to buy the large soup pot.
Worked good 3 to 4 weeks after the coating was flaking off. Back to my cast iron. I am totally disappointed in my skillet. When I first purchased it nothing stuck to it. My skillet is not about 4 months old and everything sticks to it. And yes, I cook them on low heat.
I have had mine for five months and I am going to throw them away and buy something new. The pots are ok, but the frying pans are garbage! I tried to make a grilled cheese sandwich the other day and the well buttered bread still stuck to the pan and had to be scraped off. My old iron skillet did just fine tho. Greenlife pans are useless junk. Everything sticks and I mean everything. Even the cooking spray is stuck on. I bought a set from Walmart over a year ago, for our winter home, proudly made a hanging rack and displayed my new find, used them a low heat, with all no scratch utensils, hand washed them with a soft dish cloth, for a few weeks last season and was so please, when asked what I wanted for Christmas, I mentioned and received another complete set, which I planned to take north and replace that cookware with.
The bad news is they started to show tiny spots in some areas and also have food sticking in those area, in spite of the use of extra olive oil. I no longer have the box the first set came in or the recite or proof of purchase. Well they still give me a refund? I was gifted a 12 in. Green Life skillet back at Christmas It has gradually developed chips over time and now, 15 mos. I am so disappointed in these pans and more disappointed with the company.
Good luck with the warranty or getting in contact with them. We have had ours 2 weeks. Thus morning, after frying bacon on medium heat, two chinks have appeared on the pan. I will say the ceramic distributes the heat far more evenly than other cookware.
I had read somewhere that your not supposed to use non-stick spray Pam on these pans, just oil.? My pans worked great for a few months and then stopped working they even stick when cooking bacon. Bought the frying pan set 2 weeks ago. Had been hand washing however it said dishwasher safe so I put it in with a load since then everything sticks like glue, handle also caught fire.
I thought your cookware was all ceramic not ceramic coated. I have had this set not more than 6months. And I am seeing chipping. Very disappointed with these. Your not to use cooking spray or it will form a sticky non-stick. I cooked smoked turkey sausages and added just a small amount of water.
They turned our nice with the grill marks and i was able to use the lid to keep warm or the rack if i wanted to steam buns.
I bought the large fry pan and the small fry pan. So far I am not happy. Everything seems to stick and I plan on taking them back to Walmart. I have used olive oil, and canola oil on medium heat. What am I doing wrong?? You may not be able. The Greenlife Cookware seems really nice! I really like the review and I think that it is absolutely worth it! I love that they are so easy to clean! I got mine for Christmas. Before even using one a spoon the perfect width of pan got stuck in the pan and after getting it out it left two spots without ceramic.
The company did replace it with a note that said make sure you only cook on low to med. So I have done all that stuff and still coating coming off.
I make everything from scratch so use my pans daily. This cookware is for the kitchen that does not get a lot of use. I have my small and large fry pan for about 8 months and have 4 months with sticky food problems. I do not use metal utensils or dishwasher. Have my green life pans for about a year and have never used a medal spatula or anything that would scratch them. But my pans have scratch marks on them.
Very upset with this. Wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem. Has anybody had any problems with a funny taste coming into boiled noodles or rice? I received the complete set last month for my birthday and washed all pots and pans in hot soapy water rinsed and toweled dried by hand, since I have boiled rice, and noodles two times in the medium and large pots and my food came out tasting like it was boiled in water that came from a hose.
I know its not my water because I never had that problem with my old pots. I thought I was the only one with this issue. However, all my food tastes synthetic. I washed the cookware before using but it still smells like chemicals and makes my food taste funny. I thought that green life pans were great until on day my food started sticking — and now I am ready for some other product.
I have been using these for about 2 years and no problem at all. The coating is still there I hand wash also myself and use the green life utensils as well.
I am planning to take a pan like this for a long time! I am fascinated by how easy they are for cleaning! I bought three frying pans at Walmart. For a while, I loved them; any food just slid right off and you only had to wipe them for the next use. However, even though I took care to touch the cook surface with plastic utensils only, the surface seems to have worn out. I got one of these as a Christmas present and I like it very much. But I would caution anyone against trying to cook eggs in it without a little butter or oil.
First thing I tried to cook in it was a couple of fried eggs and they stuck not a lot but they stuck. Now I put a little butter in it when I cook anything and it works fine.
And it is very easy to clean. Green Life skillets cook great BUT buyer beware! There is a silicone pad on the back of the handle that leads you to believe the handle can be touched while cooking and will not be hot. I lave they way they cook, but I will get rid of them. My suggestion — buy something else!!
I hate these pans! Everything stick and it was right from the start. No olive oil, lite oil, low heat, hand wash and only have the right tools. Never will buy another. I wish I would have read these reviews before I purchased them. Normal use and the frying pans are completely stained at the bottoms after having them for about 6 months. The pans are good at first but after that things stick and the coating starts to get spots i sm not impressed at all. Please tell me whym.
So strange…eggs stick every single time to mine…. It is a waste. I bought the whole set took extra care even used paper towels to wash each pan. The thing is, yes when pans are new the non stock is great but within a month eggs start sticking and I wind up with scrabbled eggs.
These pans were nice the first few weeks. I will never buy them again. My old cheap wore out non stick pans work better than these pans. The handles burn and break off. I bought a set of your ceramic frying pans the small pan is nearly unusable as everything I cook in it seems to stick and burn even on low heat ,I must say that I am very disappointed in your product Tim. A bizarre and potentially dangerous read, class action? This was the two-pan set in brick color. Beware of new and improved.
The only thing I will use is old and tested like cast iron or stainless. This was a waste of money. Everything burned and there are scratches and chips all over the skillet. I threw the receipt out, figuring this was a decent purchase. My sister-in-law gave me an aluminum electric skillet and I use it daily. I also bought mine at Wal-Mart. These pans work great for a while — maybe a few weeks, then food sticks like glue and they must be scrubbed to remove the stuck on food.
I was very careful with mine and took very good care of them, only to be very disappointed. It worked fine for a couple weeks. I thought I overheated it because everything started sticking so I bought another one. Just came out of my kitchen having almost thrown my frying pan in the trash! I was so impressed with the pan.. But after the first 4 or 5 washings, food began sticking worse and worse. Right now I have a pan soaking in the sink with egg crusted on it! I have to scrape it with my nails to get it off.
Not worth the money! My first pan work for about 2 months, then started sticking bad and stained. Followed directions for use. Thought it might have been a bad pan.
Bought another one and the same thing, lasted about 2 months then started sticking bad and stained. After reading all these negative comments, will be taking mine back. Have NOT used it yet. Back to the old butter or Crisco the stainless steel or aluminum cookie sheet! Lovely to look at, they work well for a while, but if you ever scorch something like asparagus, broccoli, or anything else, actually you will leave a carbonized layer on the pan, and it will never look the same.
We have 5 of these pans all bought at the same time, tho from different stores and it has happened to all of them. First clue this was a BS product should have been the packaging. The chef is preparing a salad in a skillet! So, it worked like magic — for about 2 or 3 weeks. Within 6 weeks, it lost all its anti-stick abilities, and now is worse than a regular stainless steel pan. And I baby my cookware. I never use metal utensils, and always hand-wash.
Walmart should be ashamed for allowing their name associated with this far inferior piece of garbage. Folks with limited income are trusting Walmart to provide reasonably priced products with good value. This is simply a rip-off. Worked fine first time. But once something over browns or burns they stick from then on. From other comments I have been reading it would be a waste of time trying to get warranty. I would not recommend these to anyone. I have had a few items stick to the pan but nothing that would make me take them back.
If they are dishwasher safe they should not lose that feature. If I could I would have posted photos. Very upset as theses were not cheap…. As a chef, the green life series pan and pot set was the best investment i made in my home kitchen. Its absolutely non-stick and easy to clean, only using the soft side of my sponge. My next buy will be the ceramic baking dishes. I will never go back to the other non stick products.
Thank you green life. The pan performed admiraly and did everything as advertised-the heat was distributed uniformly, there was absolutely no sticking I used a very thin pat of butter after preheating , and clean up was especially easy I used a soapy wet sponge. The omelet came out perfect — even better than the best omelet I ever made before!
I saw that many reviews said the coating failed after a few days, weeks, or months. I will monitor the pan I bought and report back to you all if there is a change in my opinion. But so far, this pan is one of the best I ever used in the past 40 years. Bought the frying pan. Shunned everything else in my kitchen. After 9 months I scorched a sauce. Now there some problems. Not big enough to make me switch pans though. And I want no part of it. Are these made with aluminum? And if so, recommend a non aluminum brand.
I am looking to trash everything and start again, aluminum free,. I bought two pans, large and smaller about six months ago. Last night I heated up vegetable oil covered the bottom of pan and in a few minutes the pan started on fire. It almost burned me and my new kitchen. I was able to get the pan outside and throw it to the ground. In all my years of cooking I have never had a kitchen fire. These pans are extremely dangerous. I honestly can say I love these pans! We are very pleased and recommend!
Horrible product, when put to the test; too bad. I bought the whole set, a bit pricey. I have no problem with sticking or cleaning as long as I cook on low or medium heat and use plastic utencils. However, it makes all my food taste funny. I washed all the cookware in hot soapy water before using but, all my food has a synthetic, chemical taste to it.
Bought a Green Life set for my wife last year. After a year of use, I have to say these are terrible. My first review was same but if you see my green life after couple month That I bought them, became trash. I am beginning to think that ALL of these non-stick pans are only good for less than 1 year and then need to be thrown out.
Had high hopes for this green product. Absolutely lovely for about two months. Hand washed with organic dish soap, only used plastic utensils on them….
