*I was given my Ozeri Stone Earth Pan free to test and review in my home.Doing a review is always my choice and all opinions stated are mine and mine alone.
I was recently sent a new 10 in. Stone Earth Pan from Ozeri to try out in my kitchen. Ozeri makes tons of different unique lifestyle tools for your home.From bathroom scales to salt and pepper grinders,they have lots of items that make life more fun.
To start with I would like to tell you a little bit about this new pan. It utilizes a natural stone-derived coating from Germany that achieves non-stick perfection while remaining 100% free of PFOA, a harmful chemical found in most traditional non-stick cookware. It is an eco-friendly pan that delivers unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing any harmful fumes or toxins.
It is also scratch resistant and it is made with a heavy duty die-cast aluminum.It also has a heat-resistant silicon handle that stays cool to the touch.
As you already know I am trying every day to remove more and more harmful toxins from our home.It scares me so much,that there are literally toxins everywhere. I hope to someday soon be able to replace all my cookware with non harmful versions.
Okay so now to the fun part making Pork Schnitzel. I had never made this before I tried this with my new Ozeri Stone Earth Pan,but I had been eating it a lot at a local cafe that makes it here in my town.
First off the ingredients list.
1 package boneless thin cut chops(or cut thick chops in half)
11/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
5 tbsp real butter
I then took the pork chops and put them between two pieces of wax paper and used my rolling-pin to beat them to about 1/8 inch thick.You can also use a meat tenderizer or a heavy glass to flatten out the chops.
I then got out 3 bowls and filled one with flour(salt& pepper to taste),one with the two eggs beaten to make an egg wash ,and one with the Italian bread crumbs.
I then melted the butter in my new Ozeri Stone Earth Pan and set the temp to medium heat. With this new pan you don’t need to cook at as high a temp.
I then dipped each pork chop in the three bowls starting with the flour,then the egg,and finally the bread crumbs. I then cooked them about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. After they are done I lay them each on a plate with paper towels to drain off any excess fat.
After you have finished cooking all the chops you can then take the cup of chicken broth and use it to de-glaze the pan.I then added the juice of one lemon to the broth gravy .
You then top the chops with a bit of gravy and a slice of lemon. We served ours with homemade mac-n-cheese,but it is also delish with mashed potatoes.
Overall I couldn’t be happier with my new Ozeri Stone Earth Pan. I have cooked with it daily for over a month and it still looks brand new.For the price I haven’t seen a skillet or pan yet that beats it.So for that it gets a huge A+!
