Ren Dawn Rooks: Um, olive oil has a low smoking point, you should have used peanut or
B Welkinator: "hard to do without getting oil on the camera" - why not use a paper towel
to spread the oil and keep your hands clean?
Bobby Harper: Mine works well even after a year.
deinemuddaisdoof: olive oil has too low heatpoint and he uses way too much, the thing with
seasoning is to wipe all excess oil off, get it to the smokepoint, let it
cool down, wipe, and repeat a couple of times for best results...
Chris Marino: Don't say you are going to see if a product "works as advertised" and then
not follow the Manufacturer's instructions for seasoning it. Instructions
say to season with vegetable oil not olive oil and use the oven not stove
hillsmom hillsmom: I love mine and have given the 10" skillet for gifts, too. My DH managed
to burn mine by cooking (ugh) liver at too high a temp. (I don't eat
liver) but I'm glad to see you also have a video for re-seasoning as I had
forgotten the instructions. Do you have any suggestions for cleaning burnt
on grease from the bottom of the pan? My DH doesn't seem to understand
about wiping off the "lip"...8-) Oh well, I'm glad he does cook.
barakah856: I followed directions to the letter, using vegetable oil that I wiped on
with a paper towel, as it said a light coating. Baked it in oven at 300
for an hour, just like it said. When it cooled, there was a sticky film
from the oil and it felt gritty, not smooth. Directions said to wipe oil
out with paper towel when cool- I couldn't do this as it was so sticky and
gummy. Washed it in very hot water with soap and got some of the
stickiness out but now I wonder if I un-seasoned it. I even tried to use a
green scrubbie to get the gunk out. There's no way to contact the company
about this, as the contact info on website is just about your order, and I
bought it in a store, not from the website.
Steve Morris: I have one of these pans .I fried up scrambled eggs and the eggs stuck to
the pan .
basilador alburero: dont buy it it scam
Leo Guy: Some like it some hate it, should wash and dry the pain before seasoning
any pan. Only $20 if they are miss leading consumers they will know about
it when the Government takes them to court!
Nancy Storrs: I tried this. It resulted in a grease fire. Do not season these pans.
The company no longer recommends it.
PsuedoMyht: We have tried a number of these pans and the Orgreenic thus far as has been
fairly good to us. Seasoned using the oven method for the first one, we
purchased a large set and are trying the stove top method (saw some folks
and I am telling the wife to go with the oven method). Here are a few
observation from others comments I must make: 1) Cooking eggs - this is
THE classic test of the non-stick nature of a pan - but for all non-stick
pans it must be a HOT pan, not luke warm but hot! 2) None of the non-stick
pans should ever be placed in your dishwasher... It seems like dishwasher
detergent is too abrasive for the non-stick surface. 3) Do not go
directly from hot stove to cold water, while this is great for metal
(tempering), it seems to wreak havoc on most non-stick coatings. Always
allow the pan to cool before washing it with water (unless the water is
All that said, I hopeful that the stove top method of seasoning these pan
works - I know the oven method did... we will see!
Tula Chuchu: The company states not to use spray oils, olive oils or canola oils to
season the pan. Use veg oil or shortening to season the pan. I have had
my pan for right at a year and am about to season it again. There are
reasons not to use these oils and telling them lies about what kind of oil
you used is not going to help anyone. I do not work for the company and am
not brand loyal, but when people do not do what they are told and then have
issues, it is their fault, not the fault of the pan.
Lisa Jones: Also, my directions for seasoning called for an oven seasoning!
Silvia Figueroa: False advertising the pan is not what they say it does no stick not true
RICH CARD: DO NOT BUY IT....JUNK...
Dashdedeh: do not dishwash. dishwashers ruin them.
Lisa Jones: I have used them for quite some time! As long as you season properly, they
work fabulously! I love it! I'm also, as it ages, try to season
John Momonee: I love mine but lately it's been sticking. I'll give this a shot, hope it'
not too late.
Loong97: Don't buy it. I had this pan before. A lot of misleading information from
the As Seen on TV commercial. Also the pan seasoning instruction told you
seasoning in the oven not on the stove from the instruction package. Never
use olive oil for high heat or seasoning.
loganrollo: Why would anyone season a NON-POROUS surface?
Bill Doremus: I have on pan that I got some time back and seasoned it the oven method and
it works great. I received a whole set for Christmas and the directions
said to season them on the stove top. I did this now there is burnt oil all
over every pan I have now and they are sticky to the touch. I tried to wash
them with dawn but it would not come off. Do you think if I try to season
them by the oven method that this would help?
Jeanice Walters: My first OrGreenic said to season by coating the entire green surface with
cooking oil and then put it in a 300 degree oven for one hour. Remove, let
cool completely, wipe out and wash thoroughly. My next two skillets
(nothing is wrong with the first one, I just bought a smaller one and a
larger one). My experience is that the oven method works better than the
stove top method.
john t: After 6-8 months, mine started to stick in the center. Once after washing,
I noticed the center part of the pan had what looked like a residue, but I
could feel nothing there to the touch.
I cleaned the center with a paper towel, water and baking soda, which
removed the residue. Next, I'll season it again with hopes of having the
success I had with it initially.
Actually pleased with the product. But my seasoned cast iron fryer is the
best non-stick pan I have.
Miztle Vazquez: I bought mine like two months ago and it was perfect I love it but I cooked
an egg and stick I'm so sad what can I do?
mdondo55: they need to have this on their site as they have nothing about seasoning
Laura Foye: Did you not wash the pan first? I think that's 'step zero'. I just
received a set of these as a gift, and I'm hopeful, but doubtful, that they
will meet the expectations the company puts out for them.
Timothy Acker: Such an important step should be done at the factory. It's like telling us
t attach the handle. Had mine on the stove for a half hour and never did
see it smoke.
ExcelDriveVideo: I've heard that from a few people. I've read my instructions ver batim....I
beleive they may have two versions of seasoning instructions out there.
peggy seay: did you season it?
ExcelDriveVideo: I'd bump up the heat....keep a close eye on it. Good Luck and thanks for
ExcelDriveVideo: Look at my other videos. It's called: The ORGREENIC Non-Stick Skillet
Frying Pan Review: Does it work?
Austin Walls: kermit?
Ambaa: That's strange, I've used mine for a couple months now and I've never
needed to use any oil on it. Everything slides just like it's supposed to!
Paul Wu: And after seasoned, should I rinse it?
Al Vignart: My first orgreenic (bought in August, 2012) was replaced yesterday -October
31, 2013- by our local CVS store. I brought it back because it did not
perform as manufacturer states: everything I attempted to cook did stick to
its center area. It looked 'new', for I took excellent care or it, except
for a few inexplicably very small chips at the bottom coating, where
aluminum was visible. I noticed this new unit calls for a different
seasoning procedure: one hour in a 300º oven... (continues)
allensacura22cl: is there a part 2? i can't seem to find it...
Robin Daniels: My small pan had stove top seasoning instructions....my larger one had oven
seasoning instructions. I think the oven method works better. I love mine
and have two small ones and one large one. I am buying another set for my
ExcelDriveVideo: There's the answer. People have been telling me about the alternate
seasoning methods. Good comment and thanks for watching.
avisdillon: Call the company. They will probably replace the pan free. My first one
came up with scratches somehow..don't know how it happened, but no
questions asked, they sent me new one free.. didn't evenhave to return the
peggy seay: i have been using medium heat and a very light coat of oil. it's been 51
minutes. no smoke. i see the oil turning brown, but it's not got to the
smoking point. i am following the directions. waiting on smoke.
Louise Florida: Flaxseed oil is what the professionals use. It has omega 3 and fatty acid's
in it and will take a high heat. It also creates the bonding polymer that
is why you season a pot in the first place. :) I have this fry pan, the
deeper pot and the small pot and they are great. :)
ExcelDriveVideo: I'll have to try it and get back to you.
Brook Gowin: Can I use olive oil or coconut?
D King: olive oil cannot tolerate higher heat compared to other cooking oils
ExcelDriveVideo: I just wiped mine clean with a damp cloth. Thx for watching.
alexlee2679: Olive oil IS a kind of vegetable oil. Duh.
Al Vignart: (from previous comment) ...after applying a light coat of vegetable oil,
repeating twice a year afterwards. I'll do it today and post additional
comments. Here is a question for current users, since I like using a little
olive oil for flavoring: if I then opt to cook using olive oil... -would I
ruin it?, -is unit designed to be used 'dry-only'?. Manufacturer states it
can be used dry, but it does not say "do not use any oils when cooking".
Carl Reiter: You should have turned the pan upside down so that the grease will not pool
in the pan and place a sheetpan underneath the skillet to catch any oil.
ExcelDriveVideo: Good Advice! Thx for sharing.
