While this 12-inch pan was one of two “ecofriendly” pans in our review (along with the Scanpan), it was the performance and con struction that made it our top choice in our review of nonstick skillets (issue #97, pp. 36-37). There was no sticking, and the aluminum core conducted heat in a controlled and even manner. Well balanced, the pan is classically shaped with gently sloping sides and a rolled edge for easy pouring. The riveted stay-cool handle is comfortable, and the opposing helper handle is a bonus. The exterior comes in hard anodized or stainless steel.
The Green Gourmet nonstick skillet weighs 3 lb. 8 oz. It sells for $69.95 at Cutlery and More.
