WHAT CUISINART IS BRINGING TO THE TABLE …
Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware
Food for Thought: Cooking with a Conscience
Toronto, ON Consumers are embracing eco-friendly concepts, now more than ever! Public awareness of the link between everyday activities and their impact on the environment and our lives is driving this trend.
Cuisinart is leading the charge for green products in the kitchen with a line of eco-friendly cookware. Our new line, GreenGourmet™ Cookware, uses technology that consumes less energy while delivering the benefits of a safe non-stick coating: easy food release and the ability to use less fat while cooking. The product is available in hard-anodized non-stick and will debut nationally at gourmet shops in September with the introduction of three skillets available in 8”, 10” and a 12” size.
The Benefits of Green Cookware
Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware allows consumers to create great tasting meals while reducing their carbon footprint. The cookware was developed using manufacturing techniques that reduce harmful carbon emissions by consuming less energy. Designed with an exclusive Cuisinart Ceramica™ non-stick surface, the cookware features a petroleum-free, ceramic-based coating that is applied at a temperature one half that of traditional non-sticks.
More good news: the coating does not contain PTFE and PFOA, substances often used in non-stick cookware that have raised health concerns over the years in Canada and abroad. The coating is also water-based, unlike other non-stick coatings on the market, which are solvent-based. This safe non-stick surface has a scratch-resistant non-stick surface that won’t peel off. The new cookware conforms to FDA, and European RoHS standards for environmentally sound products.
GreenGourmet™ cookware is a great way to fulfill consumers’ desires to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle without sacrificing quality of life. When going green, the real choice is Cuisinart.
Cuisinart’s GreenGourmet™ packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is printed using 100% biodegradable soy ink. Another key green feature is the stainless steel riveted handles that are manufactured using 70% recycled stainless steel.
Besides the eco-friendly features available in Cuisinart’s GreenGourmet™ Cookware, the product offers consumers greater versatility when cooking. Unlike traditional non-stick surfaces, GreenGourmet™ Cookware can be used in the oven for top browning and broiling.
The hard anodized GreenGourmet™ Cookware collection from Cuisinart delivers superior heat conductivity, requiring less energy to achieve the desired cooking temperature. The hard anodized line features heavy-duty construction that provides quick and even heat distribution.
Oven and broiler safe, the GreenGourmet™ Cookware was developed with Cuisinart’s signature. Stay-Cool handles, featuring a V-shaped base so that heat dissipates. This design element allows the handles to stay cool even when the pan is on the stovetop and ensures a comfortable grip. All Green Gourmet Cookware comes with Cuisinart’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
