A Dutch Oven
A dutch oven is like the king of the kitchen. It is a very flexible piece of cookware. A variety of dishes can be prepared in it, from soups, stews to all kinds of rice and other casseroles dishes. Typically, it’s a two piece cooking utensil that includes a pot along with its well-fitting lid. It has thicker walls than a regular pot and is used on the stove top or in the oven. For its flexibility and usefulness, I choose to name it the ‘king’ of kitchen.
Pure-clay™ is harvested from unfarmed and non-industrialized lands in the US by Miriam’s Earthen Cookware. It is by far the purest material to make cookware. It is naturally inert as it is free from any chemical or metal impurities, unlike conventional metal and ceramic cookware that leach metals and chemicals into the food. MEC’s pure-clay pots are handmade without using any chemicals or glaze so as to maintain its natural ability of being inert and safe for cooking. It is proven to be 100% non-toxic and healthy. In a world of toxic metal or ceramic cookware, pure-clay pots stand out as the healthiest alternatives. Hence, I choose to call it the ‘queen’ of cooking materials.
The Perfect Pair
What happens when you pair them both? You get an ideal dutch oven that cooks your food in the healthiest way possible. It not only doesn’t leach toxins into your food but also preserves its nutritional value with unique far infrared heat cooking. This heat is food-friendly and cooks without damaging the nutrients.
MEC’s dutch ovens require little to no monitoring when cooking. Heat given to the pot is held inside so all recipes can cook beautifully just on medium heat, and many times you can conveniently turn the stove off even if the food is not fully cooked… it finishes cooking with the heat retained inside.
Moreover, the steam management properties of MEC’s pure-clay pots are a blessing; the strategic design of the pot & lid uniquely allow steam to circulate inside and let food cook with its own steam pressure. The straight walls of the pot, the pot being made in concentric circles, the inner flute on the lid and a cool underside of knob allow for steam to rise, get condensed and drop right back into the pot. Thus, the water-soluble nutrients are not lost by evaporation.
No more leaching toxins into food — a healthy delicious dish every time you cook in a pure-clay dutch oven. Adding to the benefits, it is easy to handle and keeps getting better as it is seasoned (after 4-5 times of use).
Why should this ‘Couple’ be a part of your kitchen?
The popular cookware available in the market are made of metals or ceramic. At cooking temperature, metals break into ions and react with food (a biochemical entity). These metals are then assimilated in our organs and blood with food, and keep accumulating over time. Such toxins (metal and chemicals) are known to cause health problems that may range from allergies, minor illnesses to chronic diseases. Also, the heat from metal cooks food unevenly and damages nutrients in the process. What is left is a nutritionally lacking food full of toxins!
“In a day and age when it seems everything is fast, furious and full of toxins, Miriam’s Earthen Cookware is like a breath of fresh air.”, says Anil from Arkon, AL, a customer after using MEC’s pure-clay cookware. With so many health benefits, who wouldn’t want this perfect ‘couple’ to be a part of their kitchen?
