Dating back to 2007, Greenspan is the pioneer of non-stick cookware, free of dangerous chemicals. Previously, cookware was coated with PTFE (commonly known as Teflon), which was feared to produce toxic fumes when heated to certain temperatures. Even worse, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), usually an ingredient of Teflon coatings, was proven to be carcinogenic.

Greenpan has since adopted a new path. It is driven by health and safety standards in producing their eco-friendly cookware. The Greenpan Venice Pro is one typical example of a robust non-stick solution that serves both the company's interest (profits & reputation) and the consumers (zero-health complications & quality).
Greenpan Venice pro is crafted from anodized aluminium and comes with a stainless-steel handle. Choosing aluminium for a pan is a gamble due to its myriad advantages and disadvantages. It is excellent in conduction of heat, cheap and light. On the other hand, it has a high probability of leaching into food due to its highly reactive nature. It's thus anodized with aluminium oxide to eradicate the negative attribute.
Greenspan Venice Pro has some excellent features that make it outstanding. Below is a detailed breakdown of the features and the benefits.
Made With Hard-Anodized Aluminium
Since aluminium is pretty reactive, it's anodized to make it ideal for cookware. Anodizing aluminium is an electrochemical procedure that puts a thin surface layer of aluminium oxide. Despite being less reactive, it ensures uniform heating and excellent heat retention.
- Superb quality
- Better eco-credentials
- Frail on induction hobs
- No lid
It's very light, which makes handling very easy. Also, it’s very durable. The bottom side is flat to provide maximum stability and even heat distribution. Factually, that is a worthy trade-off at its budget.
Thermolon is a ceramic non-stick material that poses no health implications like the traditional PTFE and PFOA. Thermolon is enhanced with diamonds to make it stronger and more durable. Thermolon Infinity coating helps the pan to withstand intense usage and cleaning.
On the interior, the surface features a stylish shiny, dark grey surface thanks to thermolon layer. Thermolon is also advantageous because it does not produce toxic fumes irrespective of the temperatures being subjected to it. It's, therefore, safe to use. You are guaranteed healthy and safe cooking, no lead or cadmium, no harmful fumes.
Although the Venice Pro boasts numerous ceramic non-stick attributes, it's not to say that it's indestructible. Continuously pushing the Venice Pro to its limits (such as higher temperatures) will see the pan rapidly lose its non-stick qualities.
Non-Slip Ergonomic Handles
The Ergonomic handles are made of stainless steel and are riveted to the pan's base for enhanced stability. The riveted handle is beneficial because it is easily repairable in case of damage. Also, before the rivets come off, they first get loose, and you get a chance to fix them.
This is unlike the soldered handles that break with no warning. You should, however, be cautious while cleaning the pan because the rivets and the engraved name on the handle may make the process a bit tedious.
Additionally, the handle forks just before joining to the base—this design aids at dispersing heat from the bottom, which helps the handle remain cool. The all-metal handle shouldn't be a big concern when putting the pan on and off the oven.
Sizeable Yet Versatile
Venice Pro non-stick fry pan is 30cm and doesn’t even weigh a pound. That's enough size for daily cooking tasks such as stir fry, bear, sear, or sauté. It's ideal for all meals; breakfast, lunch, or even a late-night dinner.
Magneto Induction Technology
Aluminium doesn't work with induction hobs. Magnetic materials are thus added to the aluminium. Patented magneto induction technology coupled with a recent magnetic coating on the base assures the pan's stability.
The aluminium base is strengthened with iron which holds the magnetism required to produce heat on induction hobs. Furthermore, the pan cannot warp, scratch or wobble. Even heating ensures you cook with zero energy loss.
A lifetime warranty is a guarantee for quality. This warranty covers shortcomings in the material and quality of the pans (manufacture defects). However, the thermolon non-stick ceramic coating is only covered for two years in the warranty. Notably, the warranty excludes damage caused by accidents, carelessness, abuse, alteration, or overheating. Such damage may include scratches, discolouration, or stains.
It's advisable to accord the Venice Pro pan proper care to ensure your pan lasts longer and does not discolour. Even though the pan is dishwasher safe, the manufacturer recommends washing it by hand with warm soapy water to maintain its look and quality. Also, it's advisable first to let the pan cool completely before cleaning it. It's good to observe all the precautionary measures to avoid voiding the warranty.
