Prestige have added a new . Joining the cookware collection is the new – sustainable saucepans and frying pans that will make an excellent addition to any eco-friendly kitchen.
The Earth Pan range is made in Italy with 100% recycled materials, including recycled aluminium that produces 88% less CO2. The pans have toxin-free, ceramic non-stick cooking surfaces, and the handles are made from recycled plastic bags. The pans are fully recyclable too – and all packaging used is also 100% recyclable, biodegradable and plastic free.
We were sent the * to review – and were very impressed. It's an excellent quality pan that feels sturdy without being too heavy, and is a pleasure to cook with. We tested our pan on a gas hob, but it's suitable for all hob types, including induction.
We've cooked a range of different meals using the Earth Pan – and it performed well with everything we tried. Thanks to the superb non-stick properties we found we could use less cooking fat, so we've been able to create healthier meals. Omelettes and pancakes were easy to turn, and stir-fries cooked evenly without sticking.
Because of the depth of the Earth Pan, and its well-fitting, shatterproof glass lid, it's also ideal for sauce-based meals and stews. Using the lid for this type of meal means cooking is more efficient – saving energy, and money. We also experimented with some one-pot meals, such as one-pot pasta and sauce. Cooking this way can also save money, as only one ring on the hob is required – so the amount of energy needed is halved.
As the non-stick on the Earth Pan is so good, food doesn't get baked on during cooking, so it's really easy to clean, with no scrubbing necessary. And if you don't want to hand-wash the pan, it's dishwasher safe.
One last – but very important – thing that makes the Prestige eco-friendly ranges so sustainable is their durability. We're still using the plant-based Eco frying pan we were sent to review three years ago – and it's still in top condition.
We're confident that the Earth Pan will still be in use in our kitchen in years to come too. Buying quality items that last – rather that cheap ones that need replacing regularly – is a good step to take towards reducing your carbon footprint.
