You might not know this about us, but here’s a fun fact: we are cookware nuts. (Perhaps even cookware snobs.) As avid home cooks who have dabbled in the cookware biz in the past, we've got some extremely strong preferences, particularly when it comes to sustainability.
First of all, nonstick cookware, while the most popular (hello, Instagram-famous pans!) in America, is also the worst for the environment. Yet, folks will insist on buying it anyway, which is why we were on the hunt for the best possible version -- welcome! This Goldune-approved Nonstick Sauté Pan by Frieling is made of recycled metals and is recyclable when you're done using it. (The general rule of thumb is that when cared for well, nonstick cookware will last you about 2-3 years.)
Ready to geek out? This pan is 100% made of recycled aluminum by the most state-of-the-art and environmentally conscious cookware manufacturer in Germany. How state-of-the-art? They've designed robots who catch any leftover coating that runs off or spills when each pan gets coated, so they can reuse every last bit. All that waste or spillage gets sorted and cleaned, along with the water, so water exits the manufacturer as clean as or cleaner than it came in.
Light, deep, and with walled sides that make flipping, tossing, shaking and mixing a breeze, this sustainable Nonstick Sauté Pan is perfect for experienced home cooks and novices alike. Wondering about that handle? It's made of recycled wood flour sourced from local forest farms! It feels soft and easy, like rubber. With a body like that, it's no surprise the bottom is sustainable AF too -- each pan has a 100% impact induction bottom that's highly conductive and energy efficient, so you don't waste energy or gas trying to get even warming or heat distribution. This pan is made for induction cooktops (our fave, because of their energy efficiencies and general sustainability), but will work on gas stoves just as well.
Your brand-spankin'-new Sauté Pan ships to you 1-5 days after you place your order.
