Is your non-stick cookware a sticking nightmare? Does it always, peel, chip and wear out? A new As Seen on TV product called Orgreenic Kitchenware, promises your food will never stick to it so you never have to scrub. Tired of adding butter and oil to your family's diet every time you cook? The makers claim you can cook everytime without it. The Environmental Protection Agency has requested that they stop making their nonstick coating by the year 2015. That's why Orgreenic uses a technological breakthrough that combines Mother Nature's ceramic with high tech science to create a slippery, durable non-stick coating.
"Isn't that a pretty green color? I'm glad yall brought me this, because I was gonna buy one of these. But thanks to you I am the guinea pig," says Alec Naman, owner of Naman's Catering.
Alec says he was about to place his order, before we asked him to test the one we bought. Following the directions, he added a little oil before the first use. He says the lifetime claims were quite impressive. The commercial shows that if you accidentally burn food, it cleans up in a breeze. Eggs also slide right out of the pan. Burnt sauce glides across the nonstick surface.
"They say that you can melt a piece of cheese, and that it will slide right off. I know cheese sticks to most skillets if you burn it, so we're gonna stick that thing on there and let it bubble and burn. Look at that, the cheese melts perfectly," says Naman. The cheese did slide right off. "Now, let's do test 2, we got an egg, we got a little bit of stick. Normally I would be able to move it in a teflon skillet, it wouldn't be sticking I'd be able to flip it over," says Naman. Test 2 didn't pan out.
He decided to add non-stick spray and that helped. "When you spray it, it seems to work," says Naman.
Problem is, the green ceramic coated pan promises to crush the competition and slip and slide forever.
In your opinion is this a deal or dud? "It's a dud, breaks my heart, I was gonna buy this," says Naman.
The product costs $20, we made several attempts to contact the company and have not heard back yet.
