It's Time to Get Crafty {in the Kitchen!} Giveaway Event




Welcome to the It's Time to Get Crafty Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network. With the colder weather keeping us inside, it's the perfect time to get crafty! Here at Eco-Babyz it means a lot of fun in the kitchen! I’ve joined with over 40 other bloggers to bring you great products to keep you or your kids busy and creative this season.

This event will run from February 6-20 and each blogger in the hop has a great prize, worth at least $25, to help you be creative or to admire someone else's handmade creations. While you're hopping, be sure to check out the Grand Prize for this Event - a 6 month subscription to Green Kid Crafts AND a $100 Michaels Gift Card!


Our awesome sponsor is Natural at Home, your one stop shop for Eco-friendly housewares. They have a great selection of stainless steel home products, PFOA and PTFE Free Cookware and Bakeware, kitchen tools, and food storage containers to suit your needs. 

We have just reviewed and tried the amazing PORTO Non-stick Fry Pan and we give it our seal of approval. Not only am I amazed at how affordable this non-toxic fry pan is ($32.99 for the large 11" size), the performance totally blew me away. Even and thorough heat. Non-stick surface that really doesn't let anything stick, not even without oil. Very sturdy and seemingly indestructible construction. I am truly amazed by it! 

One of you will win the 11" PORTO Non-stick PTFE and PFOA free Fry Pan and the Multi-size pan cover

  11. I have a cast iron pan that I used frequently at my old house, but we have a glass stovetop now, so I can't use it here. I recently purchased an orgreenic skillet to add to my stainless steel collection, and I'm enjoying it. I haven't thrown out my teflon-coated griddle yet, but I think I will today. I haven't used it once since acquiring the new skillet almost a month ago...

    1. Cast iron and stainless are great! A much much better option than non-stick Teflon. I have a stainless one I use sometimes with lots and lots of coconut oil to keep things from sticking :)

  16. We use mostly cast iron pans, but I still face a few non-stick pans around. I'd love to get them out the door!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I did switch to Eco-non-stick i have one little one for eggs and large flat one for everything else. However just few days ago having too much going on in the kitchen i forgot i left my frying pan on with some coconut oil and i ruined my pan, no matter how hard and long i was scrubbing it with baking soda i have a dark brown bottom on one side it's a bummer it was my one and only frying pan. Would be great to win this and try it out.

  26. We are slowly changing over and have a few eco-friendly pans/skillets. The regular ones we have are just no-name non stick pans and I have some that are not non-stick that were passed down to me when my grandparents passed away that are probably older than me (I think they are stainless steel).

    1. I think eating out is even worse because not only do you not know what they cook on, you don't know what's in your food either! :) At home at least you know what you are eating if you're cooking from scratch lol

  47. For me there wasn't really a switch to make. I grew up with a wood stove, so cast iron was by far the most suitable option. Since then, while roommates usually do have some non-stick stuff around I have not been satisfied with the way it cooks things enough to use it more than a handful of times. And that's besides the health concerns!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I use a combination of teflon and cast iron.

    ReplyDelete
  49. We have all stainless steel or non toxic non stick... I do know of the dangers but am moving as we can.. We still have a few cakepans/cupcake pan of non stick. Thanks!

  56. As items wear out we make the switch - but mostly still have the toxic pans.
