Ok so I bought this pan about a week ago and I wasn't expecting a godsend but I did expect it to work at least as good as the regular nonstick pans. Well with that said I have never been more disappointed in a product. Yes. I seasoned the pan first by letting oil smoke and still IT DID NOT WORK. I cant even make decent scrabbled eggs. OK just thinking about it is making me mad emoticon emoticon

My research indicated that OrGreenic pans have a titanium ceramic non-stick coating.
I've never owned OrGreenic but I do own some Scanpan Classic that also use titanium ceramic coating.
The coating on Scanpans are fairly non-stick but not as slipery as teflon. The ceramic coating is much tougher though; tough enough to use metal utensils.
Scanpan advertizes that their pans can go in the dishwasher (many Teflon non-stick pans recommend against dishwashers). However, I noticed that they stick badly after they came out of the dishwasher. Even though none of my materials mention it Scanpans do sometimes have to be resized with peanut oil to restore their performance which we now do every time they come out of the dishwasher. For some reason you aren't supposed to use Pam or spray shortening on Scanpans. I forgot a few times and they didn't explode but other than that I follow their instructions. I usually use a tiny amount of butter or oil. I have had to return two Scanpans because the coating started wearing off. They did stand by their pans but sending it back was a hassle.
Scanpan Classic is seriously expensive. Often they sell individual pieces cheaply trying to get people to buy the rest of the set. I got a small and medium frypan this way. After that I invested in a large saute pan and several saucepans.

I saw a video review of one once. It wasn't a long-term thing, just an out-of-the-box demo; it did work more or less as advertised, though you have to pretreat it first. I don't know about long-term last, though.

I do use oil in my nonstick pans. Have never used cooking spray on them. I also always use plastic or wood utensils. They are still wearing out.

I have the one Orgreenic skillet that was $19.99. The instructions said to heat olive oil in it before using, til it smoked. I did that and the olive oil beaded up so I wondered how that would work.

Only have cooked eggs in it and they're fine.

I was wondering about this brand, too. Since they claim that you don't need oil in these pans.

I do know one way to keep your non stick pans lasting long is to use oil like olive or canola. And avoid using Pam type cooking spray. Also use plastic or wooden utensils. My non stick pans have lasted for ten years, at least.

since I don't really use cookware at all, I stick with stainless steel or cast iron.

I've never tried it, but I'd like to.

I don't use over priced pots and pans, a good sand stone pan lasts me years.. I use sand stone it is more robust than telfon. I also liked Jamie Olivers series it has a spot in the middle to tell when it is at the correct heat, however my sand ston pan lasted double as long as that one too..
They wear out from natural wear and tear- it is unavoidable..

Has anyone tried this new OrGreenic cookware that I see advertised? Does it work as well as they say? Does it hold up. My calphalon doesn't seem to last. My 10-inch pan has started to stick and I haven't had it that long.
