Cuisinart is leading the way in eco-friendly branded cookware with our new Green Gourmet line. Exclusive Cuisinart Ceramica nonstick technology is ceramic based instead of petroleum based, helping to conserve existing oil supplies. The coating is applied at a temperature one half that of conventional nonsticks, helping to reduce total energy use. And it's PTFE- and PFOA -free for healthier cooking. Ceramica coating and hard anodized construction provide high thermal efficiency, which saves energy. Riveted stainless handles stay cool on the stovetop and provide a comfortable grip. Today more and more home cooks are going green...and so is Cuisinart cookware! For healthier and nonstick cooking the 8 inch Skillet will meet all your needs.
