GreenPan was founded in 2007 with the goal of creating a healthier way to cook. Their mission is to provide safe, reliable, and eco-friendly cookware that doesn’t sacrifice performance or style that is safe for both the environment and the user.
The green pan, unlike non-stick pans with a Teflon coating, does not use Teflon. Instead, GreenPan uses a type of nonstick coating called Thermolon, the original healthy ceramic nonstick. Instead of plastic, this covering begins with sand.
Thermolon is the first nonstick coating introduced by GreenPan, which is plastic-free and created without PFAS, PFOA, lead, or cadmium. So, GreenPan cookware is environmentally friendly, doesn’t release any toxic fumes, and is durable.
How to know if a particular pan is oven safe and check the heat limit?
The first way to test if a pan is oven-safe is by looking at the manufacturer’s instructions. If the instructions don’t mention anything about oven-safe temperatures, it’s best to assume that the pan is not oven-safe.
And the temperature threshold of your pan is determined by the material used to make it. Because different materials have varying temperature thresholds, it is critical to know the materials of your pan.
- If the cookware handle is made of stainless steel, it can go in the oven and the max heat limit is up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If your pan is made up of stainless steel but covered with silicon, then the temperature limit is 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If your pan contains bakelite handles, the temperature limit will be up to 320 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- If your pan has wooden handles (as in GreenPan’s Mayflower collection), it should not be used in the oven at all. because it will heat up and can become a fire hazard.
You may always examine the box of your pan to find out what material it is made of. Stick to the knowledge above since it will benefit both you and your pan.

Precautions When Cooking with GreenPan in the Oven:
Even if your pan is oven-safe, you should still take some precautions when cooking with it.
- Never Overheat the Pan: Avoid using the maximum oven-safe temperatures. High heat can deteriorate the ceramic nonstick coating and damage the cookware.
- Use Oven Mitts: Always use oven mitts when handling the pan. The handles can get very hot, and you don’t want to burn yourself.
- Remove the Lids: Although various GreenPan collections can endure temperatures up to 600°F, the universal tempered glass lids can only bear temperatures up to 425°F. Remember to remove the lid if your recipe asks for temperatures greater than 425°F.
- Avoid Sudden Change in Temperature: Frequent temperature changes might cause thermal shock and deform the pan. Never put a cold pan in an oven, and never take a hot pan out of the oven and put it on a cold surface or wash it with cold water. The pan’s material will expand and shrink unevenly in both conditions, causing it to distort.
- Pay Attention: Food cooks more slowly in the oven than it does on the stove, but that doesn’t mean you can leave it alone. Keep an eye on your food in the oven to make sure it doesn’t burn or boil over.
