GreenLife Soft Grip Ceramic Nonstick 14-Pce Set Review

Pros: Economically priced cookware set to suit family dinners and entertaining and stylish colors and design - rates it high in Green Life cookware reviews. The set comes in gorgeous finishes including a trendy turquoise color. It is free of PFTE, PFOA, PFAS, lead, and cadmium. Lightweight and super easy to clean inside and out because of the Thermolon ceramic coating. Set includes cooking utensils along with 3 pots and 3 pans making it a value for money buy. Heat distribution is optimal. Handles are rivet free which is a positive feature for hygiene and cleaning.
Cons: The soft grip handles may discolor from high heat and are not recommended for high-heat oven use (i.e. not above 350 degrees F), and best kept away from open flames if using burner cookers. The same applies to the exterior finish on high heat and open flame (gas) burners.

The non stick GreenLife Soft Grip design

This Green Life pots and pans set has a design that is attractive and stylish. It involves an aluminum reinforced body with soft grip handles for comfort. The ceramic coating is Thermolon technology, which is toxin free and allows non stick cooking and super easy cleanup. The ceramic coating is a healthy alternative to the traditional non stick surfaces of Teflon (containing PFTE).

It is a popular buy, especially the turquoise cookware set with the turquoise pots and pans adding that cool calm touch to today’s kitchens.

This Green Life ceramic cookware is best for…

Smooth glass or ceramic cooktops. The exterior is smooth for use on these types of stovetops, but can also be used on any electric stovetops and also gas ranges (but steer away from high flame settings). They are not recommended for induction cooking, which requires special magnetic type cookware.

The cookware is manufactured without PFAS, PTFE, or PFOA. My guide explains more about these additives. The manufacturer covers defects in material or workmanship in a limited lifetime warranty.

Thick base: 4.5/5

The thick aluminum base allows for even and quick heat distribution and less energy used when cooking.

Sturdy handles: 4.5/5

The phenolic (Bakelite) handles stay-cool and have a soft grip. They are also rivet-free for ease of cleaning and durability.

Exterior finish: 4.5/5

Thermolon coated ceramic exterior makes for a smooth finish and super easy cleaning and comes in popular colors of black, burgundy, and turquoise.

Clear view lids: 4/5

Glass lids mean you can view the cooking process without lifting the lid.

Oven safe: 4/5

Oven safe to 350ºF only. Not for roasting or baking.

Care and cleaning

Easy to clean inside and out – no scourers! Handwashing is recommended although the set is dishwasher safe. Why? Dishwashers can cause chips and other wear and tear of interior and exterior non-stick surfaces of the set because of knocks and harsh detergents.

Best to store without stacking or use pan protectors to increase the longevity of the pots and pans. Nylon, silicone, or wooden utensils  are a must.

Use on low to moderate heat only. Best to use high smoke point oils so as not to stain/ruin the ceramic surface


The surfaces and handles can discolor from open flames and high heat. Use appropriate heat settings on burner stoves and gas ranges to avert ruining the look of these attractive pots and pans. This is a common issue with most nicely colored cookware.

Summary: 4.3/5

Economically priced and a good starter set. The Green Life pans will be a great set for you if you are wanting nonstick pans that clean up easily and are at a reasonable price. This set was chosen as ‘editors pick’ due to its stylish design, the selection of pieces, and its value for money.

If you are wanting a more heavy duty set, you might want to look at the Bialetti nonstick set or for a life-time investment, the Xtrema 100% Ceramic Cookware set.
