Pure-Clay Cookware — 100% Healthy, Non-Toxic & Green for You and the Planet:

There is no healthy cooking without healthy cookware.  And the health of cookware is in the choice of its raw material.  At Miriams Earthen Cookware we make pots and pans from the safest raw material fully tested to be non-toxic and healthy -- can you guess which one? ... not titanium, not 9/10 Stainless steel, not even gold, it's... Primary Clay!

Cooking with clay is as new as tomorrow and as old as time itself! But today more than ever, it is important to know the clay.  At MEC we make and completely finish our pots using only 100% primary clay. Primary clay is hard to find and harvest and requires skill to work with (which is why we're the only ones who use it, others use secondary clay). This clay, also known as MEC's Pure-Clay™ is completely inert and cooks your food without leaching chemicals, metals or toxins.

Changing your cookware is one of the most important things you can do for your health.  If you’re not using the best pots and pans, you are losing out every day!

Read more to find out why MEC's Pure-Clay cookware is the right one for YOU and the PLANET:

YOUR FOOD IS PURE & NON-TOXIC

The MEC Difference: MEC is made with 100% all-natural, primary clay.  It has NO Lead, NO Cadmium, NO arsenic, and NO contaminants or additives are used in the making - Testing information.

Regardless of the passing fads, all metals are reactive, from the most expensive to the least.  This is an innate property of metals.  And food is a biochemical entity.  In the presence of heat, these metals react with nutrients in the form of oxygen, hydrogen, halogens, acids, and bases,  and get assimilated into the body.  The accumulation of such metal ions in the organs, tissues etc., are the foundation of many illnesses and a weakened immune system.  Ceramics, glazes, and enamels (made with many chemicals, oxides and metals) are no exception either. The only raw material that keeps your food pure is pure-clay so long as it is made without any manufacturing additives.  At MEC we make your cookware without any additives what-so-ever!  So when choosing the healthiest cookware for your family don't settle for cheaper imitations.

 YOUR FOOD'S NUTRIENTS ARE INTACT!

The MEC Difference: Only material that cooks with far-infrared heat and without damaging nutrients.

While cooking food, vitamins, minerals, protein molecules, carbohydrates and fats are delicate elements going through a phenomenal change.  These nutrients are transformed from raw to cooked and the type of heat determines the final result.  Harsh, near-infrared heat from the walls of metals and man-made materials like ceramic/enameled/glazed pots destroy a lot of these nutrients.  Touch a metal/ceramic pot 5-7 minutes into cooking and it can burn your hand, food is similar tissue matter and is prone to damage just like our skin.   On the other hand, the gentle far-infrared heat from MEC's walls cook your food without destroying these important nutrients, all of it taking about the same amount of time!

 NO LOSS OF WATER-SOLUBLE NUTRIENTS

The MEC Difference: Steam condenses naturally keeping water-soluble nutrients inside.  

Ever wondered the significance of steam leaving the pot? Most of the steam generated in food is water-soluble nutrients.  Out of the 13 essential vitamins and minerals, 9 are water-soluble, which means they dissolve in water, is quickly used in the body and needs to be replenished every day... the body doesn't store them.  With conventional cookware, as steam constantly leaves the pot so do the water-soluble nutrients, leaving cooked food deficient in one more way.

At MEC we have studied this problem and designed the pot and lid to naturally and fully harness the goodness of pure nature.  The pot and lid feature an ergonomic design made by packing clay in concentric circles that let the rising steam touch the inner surface of the lid, condense, and drop back into the food.  MEC's excellent steam management properties are explained here.

"THE FOOD TASTES MUCH BETTER!" CUSTOMERS SAY

This is something we hear all the time.  It's almost like nature is saying "...thanks for using me, and this is how I show my gratitude, by making you the best tasting food."  You have to "try it to experience it," said one excited customer, about the taste of the food.   This is a unique feature of pure-clay cooking possible because no nutrients are lost and there's no interaction with metals or chemicals. You can read Miriams Earthen Cookware's reviews here.

 ONE SET OF POTS -- MORE THAN TEN THOUSAND RECIPES

The MEC Difference: Multi-Functional -- use as Dutch Oven, Steamer, Rice & Grains Cooker, Yogurt Maker, Roasting, Baking & So Much More... For the Stove-top (gas/electric/glass cooktop & induction), Oven, Wood fired Stove, etc.

All the different types of cookware in the market today evolved in an effort to imitate the way food cooked in clay.  For example, a pressure cooker was invented to keep steam inside and cook with steam pressure, a dutch oven to cook food for long hours without burning.  By using pure-clay, at MEC we have made pots and pans that give you all these features without clogging your kitchen. Use them to cook any recipe, from the Californian cioppino to the Japanese Oden, and everything in between, in the healthiest way!

COOKING IS A SMOOTH, STRESS-FREE PROCESS. CLEANING IS  EASIER.

The MEC Difference:  Naturally Non-Stick & no need for "babysitting" the pot!

Food cooks uniformly because of the heat that spreads out evenly along the lines of the concentric circles.  Steam is naturally condensed, keeping moisture inside, and all food cooks on medium heat.  When nature is used in the right way, it works best and for your convenience.  These pots start off slowly but pick up speed and complete cooking in just about the same time, compared to metals that rapidly heat and easily burn food.

MEC is finished in a special way to harness the naturally non-stick nature of the raw material.  And by following the few simple instructions for use, the pots become fully non-stick within the first 2-3 uses.  Food barely sticks to the pot/pans and so they are  easier to clean!

For all these reasons and some more customers say cooking with MEC is easy and stress-free.

FOOD STAYS WARM FOR 4X LONGER - REDUCE RE-HEATING

The MEC difference: Primary clay is an excellent retainer of heat. Your food stays warm several hours after cooking.

Have you cooked in a pot and come back in an hour to serve yourself just to find out the food is cold already? Disappointing isn't it? Not anymore! With MEC you can come back in one hour or even five hours and your food is still warm and ready to eat!

 SAVE MONEY, TIME AND & ENJOY PEACE OF MIND (EXCELLENT WARRANTY)

The MEC Difference: Well Priced, price match guarantee.  Cooks all your food in about the same time.  Slow cookers recipes in less than 1/4 of the time.

While expensive metal cookware that leach heavy metals and toxins sell in the thousands, these 100% healthy pots cost way less --because our mission is not to make high profits, but to serve people and the planet because that is real & lasting profit.

All food cooks in about just the same time as conventional cookware, give or take 5-10 minutes and think about the health value of your food, it surpasses even your most expensive copper or titanium pot!  Slow cooker meals that take 12-18 hours can be fully cooked in 3 hours or less, without any nutritional compromise!

MEC is backed by a strong & reliable warranty.
