ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenPan(TM) cookware with breakthrough Thermolon(TM) non-stick coating is the first environmentally- friendly, PTFE-free non-stick cookware available since the introduction of non-stick technology in 1938. Utilizing a ceramic-based nano non-stick technology, GreenPan(TM) provides professional chefs and home enthusiasts alike with superior performance and an unrivaled ability to cook without scratching or overheating, and the cookware is "green" for our environment! GreenPan(TM) cookware, which has earned the trusted Good Housekeeping Seal, debuts today nationwide on HSN and HSN.com by celebrity chef Todd English and HSN's "Mother of Invention" Joy Mangano. The 6-piece GreenPan(TM) cookware set is available for $89.90, as part of HSN's 30th birthday celebration, and comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. What are PTFE and PFOA? Despite numerous modifications and improvements to non-stick technology over the last several decades, the essential element in traditional non-stick technology, polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE), has remained the same since it was created in 1938 -- until today. Perflueoroctoanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical used to manufacture PTFE. In January of 2006, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiated the PFOA Stewardship Program, in which eight major manufacturers voluntarily agreed to reductions by 2010, and complete elimination of these chemicals by 2015. The EPA stated that PFOA has been found in the environment and that studies indicated effects of concern. How is Thermolon(TM) Technology Different? Thermolon(TM) is the first patented, ceramic-based nano non-stick coating that performs at high temperatures without deterioration. It is PTFE-free, and uses no PFOA in manufacturing, making GreenPan(TM) cookware environmentally- friendly. The advanced performance benefits of long-lasting GreenPan(TM) cookware make cooking and cleaning easier than ever, and specifically include: * High heat resistance: pots/pans are oven safe/stovetop safe to 850 degrees Fahrenheit, and tempered glass lids are oven safe to 420 degrees Fahrenheit. * Scratch and abrasion resistance: no more worrying over flaking, peeling or off flavors in your foods. * Superior non-stick release: surface does not breakdown or wear over time, and is healthier because you don't need added butter, fat or oils! * Even heat conductivity: throughout the surface and up the walls for even browning. * Heat-resistant, stainless steel handles: for convenient handling. * Lightweight yet incredibly durable: for easier handling and consistent performance. * Dishwasher safe: easy to clean. The stylish and modern 6-piece GreenPan(TM) set (black exterior with grey Thermolon(TM) interior) for $89.90 will be a beautiful addition to any kitchen and includes: * 8 inch Fry Pan with a tempered glass lid * 11 inch round Grill Pan with a tempered glass lid * 11 inch Fry Pan * 11 inch Steamer Insert Available individually are the following items: * 8 inch Fry Pan * 12 inch Fry Pan * 3 piece Wok Set GreenPan(TM) cookware with Thermolon(TM) non-stick coating was developed in partnership between HSN and manufacturing company, GreenPan(TM) LTD. According to legendary HSN on-air personality Joy Mangano, "When I first heard about Thermolon(TM) and its enormous performance benefits, I knew it was a progressive and important new technology that I wanted to utilize immediately. It will change the way people use cookware forever." According to famed chef and restaurateur Todd English, "It is nearly impossible for an ordinary consumer to effectively check whether or not they are overheating a pan. In doing so, you are not only ruining great food, but also an expensive piece of cookware." English adds, "GreenPan(TM) cookware takes away all the guesswork, and leaves you with a remarkably easy-to-use product that will last a lifetime." Dr. Chris Phillips, CEO of Thermolon(TM) LTD says, "Simply stated, GreenPan(TM) is good for consumers and good for the environment, and in today's marketplace, that's also good for business!"
