There have been increasing concerns around PFAS contamination in drinking water and presence in common everyday items.

PFAS are a group of more than 10,000 manmade chemicals, including those commonly known such as PFOA and PTFE. Used for their water, dirt, and oil-repellent properties, these chemicals are found in many cosmetics, food packaging, and non-stick pans, but can be harmful to health and the environment.

GreenPan introduced its Thermolon ceramic non-stick coating back in 2007, which is free of PFAS, PTFE, PFOA, lead and cadmium, unlike traditional non-stick coatings. In March 2024, Thermolon became the world’s first and only NSF-certified ceramic non-stick coating.

NSF, an independent global health and safety organisation based in the US, rigorously tested GreenPan’s ceramic non-stick coating and confirmed its adherence to strict food safety and toxicity standards.

GreenPan country manager for Australia, Camille Demaré said, “We’ve been concerned with the safety of our consumers since day one. Our mission is to provide a healthier and safer cooking experience that does not compromise performance, convenience, or aesthetics. Receiving the NSF certification for Thermolon publicly recognises our commitment to delivering the highest quality products.”

GreenPan PFAS-free cookware, small kitchen appliances, and bakeware can be found in major retailers like Myer or Minimax and online at
