Cuisinart® is leading the way in eco-friendly branded cookware with our new Green Gourmet line. Exclusive Cuisinart Ceramic nonstick technology is ceramic-based instead of petroleum-based, helping to conserve existing oil supplies and the coating is applied at a temperature one-half that of conventional nonstick. And it's completely free of PTFE and PFOA. The cookware's hard-anodized construction provides high heat conductivity, which requires less energy to reach desired cooking temperatures. Riveted stainless handles stay cool on the stovetop and are made from 70% recycled stainless steel. Today, more and more home cooks are going green and so is Cuisinart® cookware!
