Stainless Steel Earth Pan Review

I love blogging.  Not only do I get to share my life with complete strangers (which for some reason is appealing to me) but I get to try amazing products in exchange for reviewing them!

A product I received recently was a 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri.

Instead of poisonous PFOA, which is great at keeping things from sticking, but not great at not poisoning people, these pans use ETERNA, which doesn't release toxins, even at high temperatures.

Good things about the pan:

  • Oven-safe
  • Stainless steel, even the handle.  This pan is by far the nicest of all my pans.
  • NO STICK - I am a terrible crunchy mama and always use no-stick pans even though I know they are not super safe
  • They have a magnetized bottom, so you can use them on induction ovens.  Not that we have one, but given my husband's penchant for new technology, I am sure we will as soon as we pay off our dishwasher.
  • Supposedly you can use a lower heat to cook with this pan.  But since our stove is a piece of crap, I don't know if its true.  Our burners only work at medium heat and above.
  • Dishwasher safe, although they recommend handwashing (which I don't do, because I HATE handwashing) 
Negative things:
  • It is kind of expensive.  $34.95 on sale.  But I think that is pretty normal for a high quality pan.
  • It is made in China.  Now, this isn't a deal breaker for me.  A lot of things I own are from China, and many times I know that before I buy them.  The reason it bugs me is that they are misleading about it.  The packaging says "Designed in the US", but if you read all the information carefully, its made in China.  
Overall, I really like this pan.  I would love to have a whole set of these pans, but I am pretty sure I couldn't afford them.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…

Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About "Mama Cloth"

Remember how I said I was a crazy hippie??  I believe I crossed the threshold from crunchy to crazy in February when I ordered some cloth menstrual pads.

I decided that it was ridiculous that I was putting all kinds of chemicals on -or even IN- a mucous membrane for at least 15% of my (non)child-bearing years!  Mucous membranes are absorbent and I don't really want to absorb extra chemicals for no good reason.  I have heard that the disposable kind are so irritating to your vaginal lining that most people bleed for a day or two less once they switch to reusable.  Since my period has a mind of its own, I highly doubt I will ever notice this...

So I decided to buy some of the reusable sort.  I thought about a Diva Cup, but didn't want to invest the $40 on something I might hate.  I knew that even if I didn't love pads I would still use them, at least sometimes.  The main problem I ran into was that they are FLIPPING EXPENSIVE!  I mean over the course of time they are much ch…
