I love you, Man(Pans)
These are eco-friendly nonstick pans that are free of toxic coatings (like the ones found in Teflon)
Oven and broiler safe, with a stay-cool handle – and CRAZY lightweight
I’ve tried other “green cookware” before but have found them to be either too heavy (like my cast iron skillet), not non-stick enough, or difficult to clean. ManPans sent me this 8-inch fry pan to try out – good for the small-size cooking Abe and I often do.
Last night I wilted some baby spinach in it, simply sauteed with some nonstick spray, garlic, salt, and pepper. ManPans heat up really fast (and retain the temperature, since they’re made of hard anodized aluminum) so I used a much lower setting than usual.
Even with some stuck-on bits, the pan cleaned up easily with soap and water
If you remember the Green Pan that I tried two years ago, the stains that accumulated on first use never went away, and only multiplied <—-Grrrrr!
I’ll keep you updated on this one; for now, it’s passed the test drive with flying colors!

Frozen grapes on the side
Not fudge-y or buttery enough to be brownie or cookie-esque, but more like a cake?!?
For a gluten-free, naturally-sweetened dessert, it’s pretty tasty. I do like that the Gluten-Free Goddess Bakery uses all Organic and Free Trade ingredients.
Has anyone else tried their other baked goods? Or ManPans?
