The GreenPan™ SimmerLite collection offers the same cooking experience as cast iron without the frustration. Crafted from cast aluminum, this pan is 50% lighter than cast iron and, with its healthy ceramic nonstick interior, infinitely easier to clean. It’s even dishwasher safe. No uneven browning and 3x more heat responsive than cast iron, this pan lets you easily monitor the heat so you can get the perfect cook for your meal. Ideal for sautéing veggies, simmering sauces, tasty roasts or delicious braises, the spouts on both sides of the pan allow fat and oil to be poured off easily. The wide shape of the pan also allows for excellent searing and browning.
