Formerly called “ManPans,” this unique cookware designed to be green, made in the USA. While designed to save energy in cooking and transportation, it also has a nontoxic “two layer sapphire/quartz-like natural mineral finish permanently bonded to our tough aluminum pans. It will not flake, chip or rub off and is metal utensil safe. In fact the finish is so tough that you can rub a coin on the surface and not only will you not scratch the finish, the coin will get worn down!” It’s “stick-resistant” which means it’s not nonstick so sometimes oil or butter will be needed, but it’s easy to clean. I had one of these pans when they first came out and I used it for about a year. I couldn’t cook eggs in it without butter, but I could cook almost anything else fat-free. The pan itself is made from anodized aluminum, but it has their special finish, so no aluminum gets in the food. My one consideration about the pan is that it is extremely lightweight, which might be a big benefit for you, but I like heavier cookware. For that reason, I no longer have it in my downsized kitchen.
