 Read more to find out how & why cooking in Pure-Clay is so healthy for you and our good for our planet:

100% Pure Clay Cookware: No Metals, Chemicals or Glazes. No Lead, No Cadmium - Certified.

There are no additives, plasticizers, feldspar, extenders, dyes, talc, mica, petalite, glaze or anything else added to our clay. Contains nutrients such as Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous...& Micro-nutrients (see full list here) It's made with ZERO negative impact on the environment. The complete composition of our clay is tested and certified to be 100% free of any heavy metals and toxins including Lead and Cadmium. It's so pure you can eat it! And our promise is to keep it this way.

Inert & Non-Reactive Cooking Surface: Cook Your Food Without Contamination From The Pot.

Nothing from the pot reacts and leaches into your food because Pure Clay is naturally inert and non-reactive. Metals on the other hand are highly reactive -- they react & leach into food and are very harmful in your body.

Excellent Steam Management Properties: Stop Losing Essential Water-Soluble Nutrients. Cook Without Extra Oil Or Other Fats.

Did you know: 9 out of 13 essential vitamins and minerals are water soluble and are constantly lost in the form of steam with conventional cookware? With Pure-Clay, steam is is so well managed inside the pot that little to no water soluble nutrients are lost as steam.  The special design of the pot and lid lock the rising steam, cools / condenses it and sends it right back into your food. This feature also lets food cook with its own oils and juices so little to no oil or other liquids are needed.

 Superior Far-Infrared Heat Cooking: Cooks Food Evenly, Thoroughly & Without Damaging Nutritional Cells.

While conventional forms of heat and cooking quickly damage nutritional cells, the all-natural clay’s Far-Infrared heat slowly & evenly spreads out. Once it’s evenly spread, it rapidly finishes cooking your food by penetrating deep and without causing damage to the foods nutritive cells letting you enjoy the FULL nutritional value of real food and not have to depend on artificial supplements. This feature also lets seasoning and spices go deeper reducing the need to use a lot of salt or seasoning.

Energy Saving: Save on energy bills, Cook Using 1/2 The Energy.

Pure-Clay is an excellent retainer of heat.  All the heat given to the pot is locked inside and spent on cooking your food. So all foods are done just on medium heat, taking about the same time.  There’s much more to the seemingly simple & elegant design. The entire pot & lid are made in sequential concentric circles and finished so that the bottom can take heat faster & spread evenly. The sides are finished in downward spirals so heat can be conserved and sent to the food. Also, Pure-clay can keep your food warm for several hours making it the “most energy efficient pot” in our modern day kitchens.

Multi-Cooking: For the Stovetop & Oven! Make Rice, Soups, Stews, Steaming veggies, braise meats, breads, casseroles, make yogurt all in these pots/pans...Saving You Money & Space!

Unique multi-functional design is ideal for several types of cooking both in the oven and stove top. They can also be used on wood fired stoves, inside slow-cookers, solar ovens and for outdoor cooking as well.

Professionally Handcrafted in the USA: With Raw Material From Within The USA.

What started off as one woman’s personal quest for the healthiest and safest way to cook food for her family, is now Miriams Earthen Cookware (read our story!) Each piece is unique in that they are individually hand crafted by professional potters. They’re made in Massachusetts, USA. A Fully Functional Work of Art, Adding Much Beauty & Natural Décor to Your Kitchens!

Terra-sigillata Finishing: Easy to Use & Clean, No Need to Soak Each Time Before Use. No Mixing of Flavors.

The natural Terra-sigillata finish calls for each piece to be individually hand burnished (with the same pure clay). This gives a beautiful sheen, is easy to clean and NO NEED for soaking in water before each use. Pure clay is naturally non-stick and this burnishing makes it even better. Also, the clay platelets get interlocked in this process and prevent flavors from seeping in and transferring to other dishes.

Easy-grip, Accident-Free Handles: Don’t Ever Burn Your Fingers Again.

Outside walls & handles don’t get burning hot even after 30 minutes of cooking, all the heat is conserved inside the pot. The handles run throughout the rim making it accessible from all sides. Chip resistant design makes it more durable and long lasting. The handles are set all the way at the top for yet another reason: so that they can stay cool for the longest period of time.

Well Priced: And Price Match Guarantee.

While even other ceramic and glazed cookware, made in USA sells for $200+, our pure, 100% natural clay, unglazed pots come at a very affordable price! Find another American pot like ours selling for less? Let us know and we’ll beat their price by 10%.
