New Ceramic Grill Pan

This ceramic pan is billed as a healthier alternative to Teflon-coated non-stick pans.  I’ve been using it to grill chicken, veggies, and fish- it cooks evenly and cleans up beautifully.  I bought this one at at Target for around $40 in January 2013.

Update 7/16/14:  As much as I like product, I would not call this a “non-stick” pan.  Use a little oil or expect some sticking.  I scour with Bon Ami Powder Cleanser (hypoallergenic, no chlorine, perfume or dye) and it still cleans up beautifully.

    Hi — I applaud the idea of creating a safer home, and there’s so much misinformation out there about the Teflon® brand, so I’m not surprised that you are concerned. I’m a representative of DuPont and hope you’ll let me share some information with you and your readers so that everyone can make truly informed decisions about your cookware.

    In repeated tests, cookware with DuPont™ Teflon® nonstick coatings proved to be more durable and continued to offer superior nonstick food release, outlasting “ceramic” coatings seven-to-one.
    And, with Teflon® nonstick coatings, consumers can save money by less frequently replacing worn out ceramic cookware. Environmentally, this can also mean less discarded cookware and its packaging destined for landfills, as well as less energy used in cookware manufacture.

    Consumers should be highly skeptical of marketing claims that suggest “ceramic” coatings are somehow “healthier,” “greener” or more “natural” than Teflon® nonstick coatings. Both Teflon® nonstick coatings and “ceramics” start from minerals that are used to create synthetic coatings.

    Global regulatory agencies have affirmed that nonstick coatings made with PTFE are safe for their intended use in cookware. Teflon® nonstick coatings for cookware and bakeware are based on PTFE and are safe for their intended use.

    I appreciate your consideration of this comment. Cheers, Sara.

    Good to know that Dupont is willing to stand by their products. My 88 year old mother has a 37 year old scarlet macaw that walks around the house following her all day. We have not used any teflon products when cooking due to the stories we’ve heard about pet birds dying from the fumes. Will Teflon offer a 100% guarantee that their teflon products will not kill my mother’s bird when cooking around this precious pet?

    Fascinating. This new pan seems expensive — I’ll want to check back to see how you think it wears after several months!
