Review: Ozeri Stone Earth Pan


Yay, I got another pan from Ozeri! Last month I reviewed the Green Earth Pan, this time, I am going to review the Ozeri ZP3-26 Stone Earth Pan with 100-Percent PFOA-Free Stone Derived Nonstick Coating from Germany. I can't tell you how much I love the Green Earth pan and I'm very excited to try this other pan from them.


Product Description

- Made with STONEHENGE coating, a safe and natural stone-derived coating from Germany
- It's non-stick while remaining absolutely free of PFOA, a harmful chemical used in traditional cookware
- Durable and scratch-resistant
- Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots
- It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves and a heat resistant silicone coated handle

My Thoughts

It's a great looking pan. It looks expensive and the surface is very smooth. I tried cooking with a little oil and my fried fish still turned out perfect; crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The skin of the fish usually sticks on pans, even if you are using a nonstick pan. With the Stone Earth pan, it didn't happen considering I only used a few drops of oil. It's easy to clean, too. Cutting back on oil and eating healthy is now easier with this pan from Ozeri.




Pros

Just like the Green Pan, it has the Greblon trademark meaning, it is 100% ultra safe. I like it a lot because it is chemical free, unlike ordinary nonstick pans that contain PFOA, a harmful chemical used in traditional cookware. PFOA can be toxic when exposed to very high heat and constant exposure to that chemical raises our risk of acquiring a disease later on. I also love that I can cook with lesser oil. Just a few drops and you're good to go. It makes me feel good that my family and I are eating healthier foods. Another feature of the pan that I love is the Stonehenge coating evenly distributes the heat, so food is cooked even faster. You save on oil and gas, plus, you get to enjoy healthier food.




Cons

None. Even the reviews I've read about this pan are all positive.

Recommendation

It's a cool-looking pan and it works well for those who are aiming to eat healthy. It's free of chemicals and is scratch resistant. It is made of durable, heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum to ensure you and your Stone Earth pan will be together for years.

To purchase the Ozeri ZP3-26 Stone Earth Pan with 100-Percent PFOA-Free Stone Derived Nonstick Coating from Germany, 10-Inch, Gray please go to their Amazon page. For more information about the pan, you may visit the Ozeri website or like and follow them on Facebook.

Deprivation and Meditation: Sudden Flight Series at the Picasso Abstract Painter Chiqui Rodriguez

There'll be an art exhibit in Makati by a Filipino Abstract Painter. For more details please read the press release below.

Filipino abstract painter, Chiqui Rodriguez announces her major new series entitled SUDDEN FLIGHT, her solo show to be held in Zurich by late summer will have its preview opening in a two-man show at the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, hosted by Altromondo Gallery on 22 May 2014 and continuing through 18 July 2014.

The 15 selected paintings from a total of over 100 works that comprise the SUDDEN FLIGHT series, awash in vibrant color, are sure to dazzle visitors to the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences. Chiqui’s unique approach to blending acrylic pigments on canvas creates gem-like surfaces. Peering through the surface to what is depicted below, the viewer realizes that all is not as glowing as it first appears. Chiqui is noted for her deep abstraction of complex realism.

Chiqui also explores a complex subject; her work calls attention to our culture’s thought of hardwork. Much of Chiqui’s artwork is influenced by her experience in the corporate world. Through this new body of work, she connects hardwork to social class as a form of meditation.

Says Chiqui of her SUDDEN FLIGHT series, “I was inspired by my short trip to Brussels after a show held in Berlin in 2013. I arrived with the intent of finding an artist who would be willing to collaborate with me in my upcoming projects, so I started to look around. Instead of finding an artist, I found some Filipinos who work around the city. My interaction with them in a different environment led to varied conversations about how challenging life is to be away from their love ones but nevertheless find solace knowing that their families benefit from their sacrifice. I started on my e-sketchpad and started to express my thoughts after this encounter. The title 'Sudden Flight' refers to several layers of meaning: sudden burst of happiness, excitement as reaching out lives of far-flung Filipinos extending compassion, a moment of bliss.”

The show plans to bring forward awareness on the inner thoughts of Overseas Filipino Workers.



About the Artist:

Chiqui Rodriguez enjoys telling people how she started as an artist. It kicked-off one morning discussing the paintings she had been working on back in 2003 while having coffee with her long-time confidante.

Fearful that she did not finish a BFA degree, she was nevertheless encouraged to share her work publicly because painting has been her hobby since she was six. Through her renewed confidence and the opportunity entrusted in her, she learned that she can do anything to cultivate her art. With this experience, she believed that she can also inspire others that everything is possible if you put your heart into it. Chiqui went on to develop her signature painting style since then. The politically motivated environment of the Philippines and her adventures while traveling between Asia Pacific and Europe molded her ideals of optimism, hope and internal happiness. The first of five series from her upcoming exhibition “Sudden Flight” is now viewable through chiquirodriguez.com and Saatchi Art. While the Manila preview of the fourth series is on 22 May 2014 at the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences hosted by Altromondo Gallery (www.altromondo.ph/artist-profiles/chiqui-rodriguez/).

Chiqui continues to research on cultural entrepreneurship in developing countries like the Philippines and remains active in various social causes.

Soothe GI Troubles with Radish


One yummy way to ward off indigestion is to add radishes to salads, pasta and soups. The crunchy vegetable's zippy flavor comes from sulfur-rich amino acids that enhance the production of digestive enzymes and bile. According to studies, eating 2 radishes daily can ease indigestion, bloat and other intestinal ills in just seven days.

Affordable Translation Service

I may have had Spanish lessons during my college years, but those were not enough to understand the annotation at the back of the land title that my husband inherited from his uncle. It's a sensitive document and we only want to make sure that we won't have problems in the future.

We didn't know anyone who could help us understand what was written there, so I thought I'd check the language schools from around here. I was shocked with the fees. My husband suggested I try the internet, so I searched for Spanish professional translation services because he was thinking, maybe it's cheaper to get those services online than get them from a regular translation office.

Sure enough, my husband was right. I found a translation agency that can help us with the document. Their fees are way lower than the service fee the local agency here is asking. Now, why would I spend so much when I can get the service online for a minimal fee?

It's really great that the internet provides us with many other resources. People now can choose companies and compare prices. If you will just do your homework, you'll find the best deals and save a lot of money.
