The best slow cooker would be the one that cooks the slow cooking dishes in the healthiest way possible maintaining their delicious taste. An MEC pot does exactly that and more, but it’s better to hear this directly from the customers who tried and tested America’s first pure clay cookware:
MEC as a slow cooker – how customers define its unique features:
“Finally, something absolutely healthy on the market. I used to love slow cookers but there was too much of lead leaking into my food. As long as there was a finished glazed, lead (it’s part of the glazed chemicals that EVERY ceramic company use) was leaking when the pot was hot. Most stainless-steel pots that are made in China leak nickel and aluminum as well (go figure?!). Miriam’s cookware is AMAZING!!”— Tatiana Iordanova
While conventional metal/ceramic crock-pots leach toxins into food and contaminate it, MEC is made from a 100% non-toxic material that is tested and certified to be free from any contaminants. MEC refrains from using additives or glazes and makes cooking pots from the purest all-natural raw material, primary clay (or pure clay). Food cooked in these pots is far healthier and more delicious than any other cookware.
Here’s what Elizabeth says about how MEC cooks’ meats:
“Chicken breast, even without a marinade comes out so juicy and tender. These pots are unique and I plan to use them for years to come.”
MEC cooks with gentle far infrared heat that retains all the nutrients (unlike harsh heat from conventional pots that destroys them). As a result, the natural flavor of the ingredients stays intact and can be experienced in the delicious taste!
Victoria Behar shares her experience in making bone broth in MEC:
“My family and I are so grateful we discovered Miriams Earthenware pots. We were looking for a way to cook bone broth and other slow cookery meals without the potentially harmful effects of lead and other chemicals in crock pots. Their cookware goes beyond my wildest expectations. Besides feeling confident about the safety and health benefits of cooking with clay cookware, the dishes are incredibly delicious and richer, and the cooking time is greatly reduced.”
You heard that right – not only does the food tastes better but the cooking time is greatly reduced. This again happens because of the far infrared heat that penetrates deep into food and cooks evenly and thoroughly. The pot initially takes a few minutes to warm up as the heat slowly spreads out within, but after that it takes less than half the time, at less than medium heat to fully cook the food. Cooking a bone broth with beef bones usually calls for 12-15 hours of cooking in a conventional crock machine, this can be done in about 3 hours in MEC pots! And with chicken bones, it takes just 1.5 hours.
“Bone broths that take 12-24 hours in stainless or a slow cooker can be done in 3-4 hours in an MEC clay pot – because of the far infrared heat…”confirms Sally, an avid MEC cook.
How lentils and beans, another “slow-cooker” item cooks in MEC is explained by Tanushree:
“I had my doubts about the lentils cooking as soft as they cook in my pressure cooker, but the lentils cook a whole lot better in the clay pot – they are deliciously soft and yet remain whole, never become a mushy paste. My whole family has noticed the difference in flavor of the food since I have started cooking in my MEC pots, and they all love it.”
When cooking in MEC, you no longer need to worry about uncooked or overcooked food. Lentils and grains will never be mushy again because MEC gives them just the right amount and the right kind (far-infrared heat) of heat to cook completely without modifying their texture, taste, or nutritional value.
In conclusion, you can slow cook all your recipes in MEC without compromising on their health, and nutritional value – in much less time. Head over to MEC Store and order a pure clay pot to experience this uniquely healthy and delicious way of slow cooking.
