To achieve your healthy cooking goals in the coming year, you must have already made a list of most healthy and nutritious recipes and foods you could enjoy with your family. Many recipes are most conveniently cooked in a pressure cooker, but have you thought about a healthy and non-toxic option for a pressure cooker to match your healthy eating goals for the coming year? If not, this article can help you in choosing the best non-toxic option in the market today:
Why conventional pressure cookers are not healthy?
A non-toxic pressure cooker would be one that is made from a non-toxic material (obviously). While all metals are naturally reactive, they just can’t make a non-toxic pressure cooker (no matter what the manufacturers claim). And chemical laden ceramics is no different – it leaches into whatever is cooking and contaminate it.
Even if we ignore the “leaching” for a moment, there are plenty of other issues with a conventional lock-and-seal metal pressure cooker that render food unhealthy:
Ever heard of “cooked food being low on essential nutrients”. This is not so much because the act of cooking but rather is because of the choice of cookware. It’s the harsh near-infrared heat radiating from a metal pressure cooker destroys nutrients. Also, the steam (which is essentially water-soluble nutrients) must be released through the vent before opening the lid. This means cooked food would have lost most of its water-soluble vitamins.
Which is the best non-toxic option and why?
To combat these important issues was born Miriams Earthen Cookware aka MEC! MEC pots are made from 100% non-toxic all-natural primary clay. The raw material is 100% non-reactive so nothing leaches into food, like with their conventional counterparts. They cook food with nutrient friendly far-infrared heat that keeps nutrients intact.
Also, food is never undercooked or overcooked and tastes great. And the best part is how MEC’s ergonomically designed pot and lid manage steam:
Steam rising from food condenses on the inner surface of the lid that stays cooler than rest of the pot and keeps falling back so the food is fortified with water soluble nutrients.
These features of MEC cookware makes them the healthiest pressure-cooking pots perfect for enjoying the most nutritious and delicious recipes with your friends and family in the coming year.
