I purchased both the 9" and 11" pan and got both for $20 each plus S&H off the TV offer. I think for both including S&H, I paid about $60, which I consider a good deal for what they were claiming of these pans, in their TV ads.

Did not want or need the chopper especially at an additional $7 for shipping of a supposedly "free" item but they wound up shipping it to me anyway. Seems, with them, no matter what you WANT or ORDER, they'll give you what THEY want. Guess they've prior business experience in selling automobiles with their package "deals."

After about 4 phone calls I finally got satisfaction and the extra S&H refunded. Seems they " mistakenly" charged me estra for the shipping. Why is it companies NEVER mistakenly charge you less? hmmmm...

Long story short, the girl I placed the order with on the phone, told me I was just getting the pans and a lid ( for the 11" pan ) without the chopper. Obviously, the company sends what they want.

The pans are great though I find i must use some butter or spray in order to have the eggs or anything else, slide right off.
I Seasoned both correctly though did not see any "smoking oil" after 45 minutes so I figured they were done.

I am having trouble cleaning them. Seems that when making
bacon ( turkey bacon ) it causes staining in the pans that I am unable to get out no matter how much elbow grease I use. i also cannot find anything on their site on how to use their "Lifetime Guarantee. Guess I'll be calling them tomorrow again." Thank god for unlimited LD!

I have let the pans cool off entirely and soak in water overnight, I've let them cool and washed immediately afterwards, but the stains still exist. I heat them up slowly at the start of cooking, but still get same staining results with some foods, most of which are meats like bacon, sausage, steaks...etc. I've evened re-seasoned them twice since receiving them around Oct/Nov. Might have even been in Sept. I'm not exactly sure at this point until I find receipt.

My Question: Does anyone have a special method of cleaning these without ruining the pot's ceramic non-stick surface?

I'm getting ready to order another. Only thing is that I may have to go through another 4 phone calls and explanations with customer service to get exactly what i want and ordered.

I guess it just depends on how much you want to pay and get a real quality pan. I used cheap stuff like that for years and a coworker convinced me to try something better. I couldn't justify the top stuff and got a set from Sam's (and made in USA too!). There was a world of difference. I was able to cook with less oil, easier to clean and no staining. I thought that was ultimate until last year I decided to try something even better. Swiss Diamond is quite expensive and only got 1 pan so far, but it is 10 times better than the Sam's set. It has no coating on it yet is non-stick. If you can afford it, at least go to Sams or Costco as they have some really good sets at a good price. You can get a day pass if you aren't a member.

If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I have the skillet which had an egg fried in it. I cannot get it clean. I just put all these pans back in the box and I don't know if I can find the receipt to return them, but out they go. Shame on me for being so gullible. I specifically asked if they could be cleaned i dishwasher and I was told they could and that is a bold face lie. Everytime I see their inforcommercial my BP goes up. Yes, I treated them as directed. And I retreated them. So Si N Teecher, save yourself a lot of aggravation. Tnozamadlog, I'm trying a pan from Sams. Regular bacon left a dark stain, too.

i used a magic eraser very softly. it took awhile but cleaned it. but a week later the same staining came back.

i am so upset i fried only one egg and already it has a stain that i can't get out. i just bought it for my husband for christmas to find out i have two more coming in the mail from him FML !!!

Johnny Gas says:
Same here, enrique. I purchased the 9 and 11 inch pans and have only experienced about 4 or 5 times (when making eggs) eggs sliding off as shown on commercial tv. and I had to use butter or pam. I usually must soak the pan, sometimes overnight or a couple days to remove food or stains. The stains are left after cooking anything but especially when cooking meats. and I followed directions before first use and have since "reconditioned" with oil 3 times withing the 1 year or so that I've had them.

As i have been experiencing painful carpal tunnel and possibly arthritis in my hands, scrubbing these pots clean are only done when i feel no pain - which actually causes the pain to return after i scrub. I would not reccommend these pots to anyone unless they ( like myself )are just satisfied knowing there are no carcinogens/chemicals being released into their foods. In my opinion, this is all they are good for. I am currently looking for a better alternative for my cooking needs.

I INSIST, though, on chemical-free ( and if possible, non-stick ) pots/pans and may be forced to use good old stainless steel ( but boy do i NOT look forward to cleaning them-:).

Johnny Gas says:
thanks. i will be looking at the swiss diamond even though i'm sure my wife won't go for it. But even 1 good chemical-free non-stick pan at 5x the costs of orgreenicware is better than these falsely advertised pans.

Does anyone else see a similar misleading pattern with items that are advertised on late-night paid programming tv all together-:)

Johnny Gas says:
I agree, but, no reason to feel shame or gullible, Theadora. We all want to believe and hope that companies and their advertisings are telling us the truth. Seems this particular company has followed in the footsteps of our ( once ) great nation's political leaders.
Can ANYONE tell the truth anymore?

Here's one truth I KNOW of:
Better Pans are In MY Future if NOT truthful politicians-:)

I received 4 pans, only wanted to order 2, but glad I got more. Gave one to mother, sister and boyfriend and they call me every day telling me what they are cooking and how they love it. No sticking or cleaning problems here. I make turkey sausage and wiped it off with a paper towel. Not sure why you guys are complaining unless that it the worst thing that is happening in your life right now...

Their advice was helpful and welcome. They aren't complaining like it's the worst thing happening in their lives right now. Seems like this is bothering you more than anything else in your life is bothering you now.

I purchased the 2 -9" pans and paid an additional $10 each for an upgrade to anodized aluminum only because I asked (supposedly, they come with standard aluminum? - like the pans you find at Walmart, etc.). It is a weighty pan and well made. I use propane for my cook stove - As I cooked to condition the pan I noticed a paint-like odor but no smoking at medium heat - I used grape seed oil and not vegetable oil (as recommended in brochure). Grape seed oil oxidizes at a higher temp; therefore, is healthier for human consumption. I decided to use a spray-on vegetable oil and pan set at medium heat, and it did smoke. I have not used the pan as yet for cooking. If they do not perform as advertised they will be returned through their RMA, but they will be surprised when I do not pay the $30 for postage return - If, in fact, the pans do not perform as advertised they will pay the return shipping fees. My credit card provider works with me on these kinds of disputes.

Jan 15 update:

I have used the pan for various foods and have found it to be fun to use - it works exactly as stated. I even flipped an egg in the air, caught and cooked the uncooked side. I believe the key to non-stick is to properly condition the pan - use vegetable oil at medium heat until you see smoke - then turn off and let fully cool down. This conditioning process is to be done every 6 months according to the instructions. I will be purchasing additional pans for my needs, but not the $400 set they offer in 5 payments.

It is definitely Too Good to be True! I was so excited when the package first arrived. However, my wife was skeptical as usual. She said, "Here we go again, not another infomercial product!".
When my highly anticipated package arrived, I immediately opened the box and followed the "conditioning" instructions exactly. I got an egg out and proceeded to fry it in my "new" Green pan. Boy was I disappointed. It stuck!!! I scraped out the egg and "re-conditioned" my new "non-stick" pan and tried a second egg. It stuck as well. I was so mad!
My wife said, "I told you so." I hate to admit it, but she was right.......again. She has confiscated my credit card and has forbid me from ever buying ANYTHING I see on a TV infomercial again.
I've been thinking about returning the pan, but the return postage will cost me more the pan is worth. So I think I will mount this pan and hang it on the wall right next to my 60" flat screen TV as a reminder not to believe any more TV infomercials, I'll hang it right next to my "Aluma Wallet" which broke right after I bought it.
What was it that P.T. Barnham said? "There is a sucker born every minute." I guess that's me.

I got one for Christmas and it worked great. Did you "season" the pan as directed until it started to smoke? I made fried eggs this morning (used the lid) and they didn't stick at fact they slid all over the pan!

Traditional stainless steel is kept super clean if you use Zuds. You have to use zuds, then rinse and wash with dish detergent, but it's well worth the time. My MIL has had her stainless steel pan set for 35 years. Her MIL has had same set for same amount of time. Both look great for being older than I am. You can't find Zuds anymore in the stores, but you can buy a case from amazon. A case usually last a little over a year, and we split it.

I bought mine at Walgreens and I love it. I have had sausage stick and stain but I immediately rinse mine out with a soft brush and it comes right off.

I've been using the original non stick cookware for many, many yrs., and they never fail.
Very easy to clean,(I use some salt, and a paper towel).
What is it? Cast Iron.

I do use oil in the cooking, but not using oil results in food tasty crappy!
Besides if you use a good oil it is actually good for you, not bad.

I had a slight interest in these pans, however, I'll stick (pun) to my non stick cast iron pans, food tastes great, the pans are as durable as iron also. lol

I have 2 pans on the way ,now I'm worried. :-/ But I have stainless steel pans and have had them for about 8 years. They look almost new now again. I had spotting in them from cooking and hated scrubbing them especially the bottoms. 2 teen boys and a hubby that think you cook most everything on high and pan size don't matter :-) didn't help my cause. I finally bought some stuff from Publishers clearing house called "Astonish" oven and cookware cleaner. I pretty much wiped it around and washed them out. Not only do they shine but stuff doesn't stick hardly at all. I do again when they start to look nasty. I love it and I have carpal tunnel and tendentious in my wrist and hands but it didn't bother them using it. Hope this helps

I purchased my Orgreenic at CVS and seasoned it exactly like the directions said, with "vegetable oil". It works perfect! I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Try "Barkeepers Friend" or Barkeepers helper" I forget. It is absolutely amazing on stainless steel.

After you season the Orgreenic pan, NEVER EVER use soap to clean it. Just rinse it with hot water and wipe dry with a paper towel.

A. Wessel says:
To remove stuck-on food and stains from pots and pans (that elbow-grease won't remove), you need to boil water and lots of baking soda in the pot/pan with 1 drop of liquid dishsoap, for about 30 minutes. It causes a chemical reaction which makes the stain / food lift right off with little scrubbing effort. The longer you boil, the easier it goes. Many things will come off after only 10 minutes of boiling. Cool slightly before scrubbing, to prevent skin burns. In a fry pan, you'd probably have to add more hot water as it would boil off quicker. Good luck.

P.S. I second the cast-iron idea. They are naturally non-stick and iron leeches into the food in an amount that is supportive for health. I too use non-toxic cookware. I use only stainless steel and cast-iron, plus glass in the oven.

I love my cast iron pans. They are amazing. So easy to use and clean, and I can use metal utensils in them. I also love my stainless steel pans. They don't stick and are easy to clean too. A little BonAmi cleanser and vinegar keep them looking like new.

I ordered it without the extra anodizing and I love this pan. Have not had any problems and intend to order more.

I saw the infomercial the other night and discovered that the pan was available at my neighborhood Walgreens. Even after reading the split reviews on Amazon (split equally between 5 stars and 1 star) I was just curious enough to buy one. I seasoned the pan NOT the way the instructions said but using the method someone on Amazon gave, which was to put a lot more oil in the pan so that the entire bottom stayed covered under oil, and heated until it smoked. Well I don't know how long it will work, but I did "fry" an egg with no oil and much to my surprise it came out clean just like on TV. You're supposed to season the pan at least twice a year. Of course a regular iron skillet correctly seasoned will also act like a great non-stick pan, but it can be a tedious process.
