I have never cooked with a ceramic frying pan before, so I was very curious to see if there was a difference from my regular nonstick frying pan and the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Frying Pan. I was pleasantly surprised with the results and the clean up when I cooked with the pan. Let me tell you a little bit about the ceramic frying pan.
Here is a product description of the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan from Ozeri:
Utilizing GREBLON - an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world's first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional cookware and other ceramic cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthelyne), a synthetic substance that has waxy proprieties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which have been documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a "persistent pollutant of the environment". With the Green Earth Pan's GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature - not a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA, and far more durable and scratch- resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Earth Pan features a textured ceramic cooking surface. The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. GREBLON ceramic made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final assembly in China.

Now for what I thought of the Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan:
I made a grilled cheese sandwich in the frying pan for my lunch. I thought it did a great job of evenly toasting the bread while it melted the cheese. There were no burnt spots or under toasted parts on the bread. I really like how my grilled cheese sandwich turned out. After I had cooked my sandwich I put a bit of cheese in the frying pan and let it cook. I wanted to see how easy or hard it would be to clean the pan with the cooked cheese on it. I let the pan cool while I ate my lunch. Then I took a dry paper towel and wiped the pan clean. The cheese wasn't stuck to the bottom of the pan! I was really surprised that the cheese wasn't stuck to the bottom, I know it would have been in my other non-stick frying pan. I was very happy with the clean up! I can't wait to try some burgers in this pan next!
