These Blush-and-Brass Pans Are Ridiculously Easy to Clean

Sausage, homemade marinara, chicken—it can handle anything.

If a pan takes up space in my cabinets, it has to be more than a pretty shade. Admittedly, the very on-trend blush-and-gold-tone combination in GreenPan's recent collaboration with Goop got my attention immediately, but with limited shelf space, it had to prove its worth. So, when the company sent a sample to House Beautiful's offices, I put it through the ringer: Would that white interior yellow the first time I let marinara simmer in it? Would I have to spend 10 minutes scrubbing the pan endlessly the first time I cook bacon or sausage on it? On a geekier level, what about if I ignore the Maillard reaction, flipping chicken before it's browned and released from the pan? How hard will I be scrubbing then?

Each and every time, food slipped off the pan. The marinara rinsed away immediately, leaving behind no trace of a stain. Bacon, sausage, and chicken left minimal residue, and with hardly any elbow grease, the GreenPan was gleaming, ready to be displayed on a hanging rack as if it'd never been used. (A pamphlet that came with the frypans did recommend wiping them with a melamine sponge—like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser—if spots do develop on the coating.)

Even better yet, the pans are dishwasher-safe and have a ceramic nonstick coating that are free of lead, cadmium and PFOAs—aka Perfluorooctanoic Acid—so you don't have to worry about the pans leaching chemicals into your food.

The final test: Does it heat evenly, and does it retain so much heat that it scorches the bottom of anything you're cooking? (Can you tell I've been burned before?) I tested this as I broke up breakfast sausage, and I couldn't detect any hot spots. Nor did it get so hot that I'd have to turn down the burner and give the pan a "cool down," like I've had to do with other brands before (including, regrettably, a $149 pan I was told top chefs swear by). They're also oven-safe up to 600 degrees F, though if you buy a model with a glass lid, the lid can only handle up to 420 degrees F.

GreenPan's blush designs are a Goop exclusive, available on Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle site in a pack of two—8-inch and 10-inch frying pans—for $99, or you can go all out with a six-piece set—an 8-inch frying pan, an 11-inch one, a 2-quart saucepan, a 3-quart casserole dish, a 2.5-quart covered skillet, and an 8-quart stockpot—for $300.
