Miriam’s Earthen Cookware: 100% Healthy Non-Toxic & Green for you & the Planet!

Cooking in all-natural pure clay cookware(C) is as new as tomorrow and as old as time itself! It is the healthiest way to cook your food for many reasons. But now more than ever, it is important that your clay is absolutely pure and the cookware is made without using any additives.

At Miriam's Earthen Cookware  or 'MEC', we started with testing pots and pans made from different popular raw material - stainless-steel, titanium, aluminum, copper, ceramics, cast iron...,  none of them provided a 100% inert and non-toxic surface for cooking, nor radiated the kind of heat that cooks without damaging nutrients.  We then tested the available "clay pots", but none were truly free from contaminants and additives (compare MEC to other clay pots). So we took it upon ourselves to find the purest form of clay -- absolutely uncontaminated, 100% primary clay -- then designed and handcrafted pots and pans, incorporating several unique healthy cooking features, and left them fully unglazed and finished by burnishing. And thus, was birthed Miriam's Earthen Cookware!

MEC Clay is harvested from within the USA, and the cookware is handcrafted in the USA.

Your food is a life force! It makes a difference to every cell -- from the tip of your hair to the tip of your toes, it even affects your genetic expression (epigenetics), to the strength of your immune system!  And the goodness and quality of the food depends on two things: What you are cooking --The ingredients -- and where you are cooking it --The cooking pot.

So, we're proud to offer you what we think is the world's healthiest and safest cookware [find another one that can do for you everything MEC can, get ours for FREE]. Continue reading to find out the difference MEC can make to your food, health & wellbeing:

MADE PURE & NON-TOXIC -- NO Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, or any other contaminants or additives - it is 100% inert.

Regardless of the passing fads, all metals are innately reactive, even the most expensive kind like titanium.  Food is a biochemical entity that consists of oxygen, hydrogen, halogens, acids, and bases. In the presence of heat, the metals react with these nutrients in food and the metal ions assimilate with food. Over time, the accumulation of such metal ions in your organs and tissues is the foundation for many illnesses and a weakening of the immune system. Ceramics, glazes, and enamels (made with many chemicals, oxides, and metal oxides) are no exception, either. The only raw material that keeps your food pure is all-natural primary clay with no additives -- the purest form of natural clay. MEC clay cookware is made using this kind of clay and without any additives what-so-ever!

DESIGNED TO COOK WITH FAR-INFRARED HEAT:  Gentle yet powerful heat that does not damage food's nutrients and cooks in about the same time or less! 

While cooking food, a variety of delicate elements (vitamins, minerals, protein molecules, carbohydrates, fats) go through a phenomenal change. These nutrients are transformed with heat from raw to cooked, and the type of heat determines the 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. If you touch a metal/ceramic pot 5-10 minutes into cooking, it can burn your fingers. Food also contains tissue matter and is prone to damage with that kind of heat! Contrary to conventional cookware, MEC, being made & finished with 100% primary clay, cooks with gentle far-infrared heat: the heat emitting from the walls penetrates deep without destroying these important nutrients. Not only are nutrients preserved, but your meals need lower heat to cook in about the same amount of time, or less on gas stoves -- compared to other pots!

UNIQUELY DESIGNED TO RETAIN STEAM INSIDE: Preserving the essential water-soluble nutrients.

Ever wondered about the significance of the steam leaving the pot? Most of the steam generated in food is water-soluble nutrients. Water soluble nutrients are important vitamins and minerals that are dissolved in water, quickly used in the body, and need to be replenished every day - the body does not store them. Out of the 13 essential vitamins and minerals, 9 are water-soluble! With conventional cookware, as steam leaves the pot, you are losing water-soluble nutrients!

At MEC, we have studied this problem and designed pots and lids that can innately retain steam. The pot and lid feature an ergonomic design formed by packing clay in a concentric pattern, and the lid is designed to stay cooler than the pot, and with two steam condensing barriers. This allows for the rising steam to condense, and drop back into the food.

With the raw material being pure and with the product being handmade, the lids may not always have a machine cut snug fit; instead, these key design features uniquely help manage steam better than any other cookware, even with their machine cut fit. MEC's excellent steam management properties are explained here.

DESIGNED TO COOK FOOD IN THE PRESENCE OXYGEN: A unique property of MEC is its “breathability”.

MEC is uniquely designed & made to allow the walls of the pot to draw in air from the outside while cooking. As temperature goes up inside the pot, the higher pressure allow the specially designed semi-porous walls to draw in air as needed, allowing food to cook in the presence of oxygen.  This feature allows the food to remain fresh, delicious and nutritionally dense! This is a stark contrast to food cooked in an airless/lifeless environment in regular cookware.
