Among a vast variety of pots and pans available in the market, made from all kinds of material from metals, alloys, ceramics to clay, it becomes a bit difficult to choose the best. The best pots and pans would be the ones made from 100% non-toxic and safe material that can cook the food while keeping it uncontaminated and rich in nutrients and making sure there is no compromise on natural taste and color of food after cooking.
Miriams Earthen Cookware (MEC) – a pioneering company in the US has done a lot of research and came up with a cookware, after taking every aspect of healthy and safe cooking into account, that is best for you. Let’s see what steps MEC takes to make the best pots and pans for its customers:
100% Non-toxic All-natural Material
MEC refrains from using metals or chemical laden ceramics that are innately reactive and leach toxins while cooking food. MEC pots and pans are made using naturally non-toxic and pure – unglazed primary clay (or pure clay) – a time honored material that has been used for making cookware by people of different cultures and geographies since centuries ago. Pure clay pots and pans are naturally inert so don’t leach while cooking and food stays uncontaminated and healthy.
Handmade Cookware: No Chemicals or Additives
Every mechanized process calls for use of chemicals in one form or another while making cookware on a large scale and yet manufacturers follow such processes for convenience and its cost effectiveness. But MEC is quite different… they make pots and pans by using the age old method of throwing clay on a potter’s wheel and using bare hands to shape it into usable pots and pans – a method that may be a bit challenging but totally worth it because the final product is pure and free from any additives. MEC doesn’t use glazes, enamels or fillers so their pots and pans are as pure, non-toxic and natural as their raw material.
Ergonomically Designed for Healthy & Nutritious Cooking
Over the time, MEC has perfected the design of their cookware to make them as healthy as possible. One such healthy feature is ability to manage steam (water soluble nutrients): the lid and pot being made in tightly packed concentric circles lets steam condense on its inner surface that stays at a lower temperature than rest of the pot while cooking and this steam keeps falling back into food, thus keeping food rich in water soluble nutrients. Thanks to their ergonomic design, MEC pots and pans can be used on different heat sources: gas, electric or glass cooktops and a single pot can be used for different kinds of cooking.
Packed with 100% Recyclable, Reusable & Eco-friendly Material
MEC strictly refrains from using plastic (like in bubble wraps – which 9 out of 10 times ends up in the oceans in bits and pieces because most towns don’t recycle them) or any material that is unhealthy for the environment. Instead, MEC uses natural materials like cardboard, corrugated and pulp as packaging materials because they are 100% recyclable, reusable and eco-friendly. This is why MEC pots and pans are as healthy for the planet as they are for your food.
Great Customer Service
Cooking in clay for the first time may seem a bit challenging to some who don’t have a hands-on experience. MEC understands this and offers great customer service to get you started on this healthy cooking method. They are always eager to answer all your questions related to pure clay cooking and help you with any issues you might face while cooking in clay at no additional cost for lifetime. Of course, once you get used to cooking in MEC, it feels so natural and a lot more convenient than cooking in any other material.
While in contrast, most resellers of other cookware manufacturers have no clue as to how the cookware functions and they say “good bye” to the customer once the product is sold and you are on your own! This makes MEC a much better choice for getting your first clay pot.
