GreenLife 16pc Ceramic Cookware Set

Design: 

This popular ceramic nonstick cookware set features diamond reinforced coating, and it's perfect for everyday use. It comes in the following vibrant colors: black, black diamond, blue, burgundy, lavender, turquoise, red, and soft pink.

The ergonomic handles have a soft grip for comfort, and the cookware is durable and meant to last. The cookware set weighs approximately 15.6 pounds.

Materials:

It features a Thermolon ceramic nonstick coating, which is a derivative from sand that does not require the use of toxic chemicals like PFAS or PFOA. It's a safe cookware set that is beneficial for your loved ones and the environment.

Thermolon is the perfect nonstick coating for GreenLife cookware because it is heat resistant up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit, so if the pan is accidentally overheated, it won't melt or cause toxic fumes. It is an excellent heat conductor and provides the perfect nonstick cooking experience.

The aluminum in the cookware makes it lightweight and ensures that food heats up fast and evenly. The lids are made of glass with color-coordinated soft-grip handles that stay cool while cooking.

Usability:

When cooking with this cookware set, you can use less oil as the food doesn't stick to the ceramic nonstick surface. It's also safe for oven use, and you will want to use nylon or wooden utensils while cooking to prevent scratches.

It's nonstick cookware, so food simply slides out of the pan onto the plate. The cookware is also safe to use because the ceramic nonstick coating has no PFAS, lead, cadmium, or PFOA.

Cleaning:

The cookware is dishwasher safe and easy to clean. You can also hand wash this set in soapy water, rinsing, and drying thoroughly with a soft cloth or towel. Be careful not to place a hot pot or pan in cold water.

Alternatives to consider 

There are several other popular ceramic cookware sets to look at in similar price ranges. One of them is the WearEver 15-piece set which is also available in some lovely colors such as red and gold and it’s a full-size kitchen set. For a smaller kitchen you might want to check out this stylish Blue Diamond 6-piece set which receives great user feedback overall.


Conclusion

GreenLife offers solid ceramic cookware sets at a low price point. We recommend investing in these sets for younger cooks looking to brighten up their kitchen with colorful pots and pans but perhaps not looking to cook at home every day. While we think the quality is good for the price, every day use will wear on these sets quickly, especially if you don’t always follow the recommended using and cleaning instructions.
