˙ Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware

by Cuisinart

˙ Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware is the first eco-friendly cookware in the industry because it uses manufacturing techniques that reduce harmful carbon emissions by consuming less energy. Designed with exclusive Cuisinart Ceramica™ nonstick technology, the cookware features a petroleum-free, ceramic-based coating that is applied at a temperature one half that of traditional nonsticks. The coating is also eco-friendly because it is water-based, unlike other nonstick coatings on the market which are solvent-based. In addition, the cookware has a scratch-resistant nonstick surface that won’t peel.

Cuisinart’s GreenGourmet™ packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is printed using 100% soy ink. Other key green features are riveted stainless handles that are manufactured using 70% recycled stainless steel. The cookware is available in two product lines, with hard anodized construction or stainless steel open stock pieces, which will debut in July 2008.

Shape You's Review:

For the most part, the majority of the world is either still clueless or just waking up to the damages that can be caused by the release of harmful chemicals while cooking with nonstick cookware. It's very refreshing to see such a big company like Cuisinart step out to the forefront and address this situation. For any other companies that see this, it's time to follow the leader.
