 A New Era of Ceramic Nonstick Skillets.

Ceramic nonstick skillets offer some intriguing benefits (safer materials, environmentally friendly, etc.) over traditional nonstick skillets, but by and large we’ve found that ceramic skillets don’t live up to the hype. In our previous tests, the ceramic skillets failed miserably–cooked food clung to the pans (even the new pans!) and they deteriorated quickly. Manufacturers are constantly making updates to their products, so to keep our ratings accurate, we’ll retest equipment accordingly. In our most recent test of ceramic nonstick skillets we wanted to find out if any newer models could meet our nonstick and durability expectations. Spoiler alert: This time we found a ceramic nonstick model that we liked and can recommend if you’re looking to add a ceramic nonstick skillet to your collection.

GreenPan Valencia Pro Hard Anodized Nonstick Frypan


One of only two pans to pass our test of nonstick coating durability, this pan arrived slick and remained so throughout cooking and abuse tests. It also has a broad cooking surface, gently sloped walls, and a comfortable handle. Because it runs a little hotter than our favorite regular nonstick skillet, you may need to adjust the heat level or cooking time when following recipes. It became scratched when we cut in it.

We maintain strict objectivity in all testing.*

How We Tested Nonstick Skillets

We tested seven 12-inch ceramic nonstick skillets, priced from about $19 to about $80. None of the skillets contained polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), the compound found in regular nonstick skillets that can release dangerous fumes if the pan is heated above 500 degrees. We prepared fried eggs with no oil, Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry, Pepper and Onion Frittata with Arugula Salad, Pan-Fried Sole with Lemony Herb Butter, and Sautéed Peas with Shallot and Mint.

Winning Traits

  • Maintains smooth surface after repeated use
  • Generous, flat cooking surface (9 inches in diameter) prevents overcrowding
  • Sloped sides keep food contained
  • Ovensafe up to 600 degrees (and it’s also broiler-safe and induction compatible)
  • Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) free
