As someone who tries to eat healthy and eliminate fat as much as possible from my diet, I’ve always cooked with non-stick pans, and most people I know have as well. Up until a few years ago. Suddenly, reports of non-stick pans causing cancer, birth defects, and more, began to surface and I went strictly stainless steel. I do like my stainless steel pans, don’t get me wrong, but there are just some things that are a real pain to cook in them. Finally, I have a solution….As Seen on TV‘s Orgreenic Non-Stick Pan. What makes Orgreenic different from other non-stick pans? Traditional non-stick pans, like Teflon, use PFOA, also known as C-8, a chemical used to bond the nonstick coating to the pan. PFOA can be released once you reach high cooking temperatures and is a known carcinogen that can cause cancer, low birth weight in newborns, suppressed immune system, and more. Orgreenic uses an all-natural ceramic coating that is non-toxic and completely safe. Don’t think for a second that it doesn’t work as well, Orgreenic works just as well as any other non-stick pan, and you can feel confident that your family’s health is not at risk.
So now I can get back to cooking with less fats and oils and hopefully lose a few pounds in the process…always a good thing for me. I love my Orgreenic Non-Stick Pans!

Guy Fieri is a chef, restaurant owner, and TV personality. He has now teamed up with Ergo, well known for their high quality craftsmanship, to create kitchen knife sets. The result is Guy Fieri’s Knuckle Sandwich series and Kulinary series. Both are made of high quality, high carbon, German Stainless Steel. They are heat treated to ensure a sharp blade with hollow ground ovals to prevent food from sticking to your blade and to give smooth cuts. The blunt ends can be used to smash and pulverized garlic.
The difference between the 2 sets is the look and the heat treatment. The Knuckle Sandwich series knives are forged, which is the top of the line method and means they were heated and pounded into the shape of the knife, then ground and sharpened. This process is repeated again and again, up to 50 times, and mostly by hand. The benefits of a forged blade is that the blade is slightly “softer” and therefore much easier to sharpen at home. It will also have a weightier feel. The Kulinary series knives are stamped, which are punched out from a thin ribbon of steel, much like dough cut by a cookie cutter. The blades are tempered, sharpened, and finished, with machines handling most of the process. The Kulinary series will give you a much thinner, lighter knife, that’s extremely sharp, and durable, but may be harder to sharpen at home.
The Knuckle Sandwich series have flames and Guy’s Knuckle Sandwich logo distressed and permanently etched on the blade. The red and black handle boasts a flame-waved design with a star to complete Guy’s signature look.
The Kulinary series has a black handle with Guy’s signature star and end cap look.
