A slow cooker made from 100% all-natural clay: learn of its features and benefits
Slow cooking is a convenient way of cooking but what makes it even better is – when the pot is made from 100% all-natural clay. Compared to conventional crock machines, it has many features and benefits that make it a preferred choice:
Can be used directly on stovetop
The raw material, pure clay and their ergonomic design makes it possible to use them directly on stove top. Just put in all the ingredients in the pot at once, close the lid and put it on the stovetop at lowest heat setting. Increase the heat to medium after 10 minutes and then let the food cook. You can occasionally check for doneness, if needed. It is that simple!
Cooks in less than 1/2 the time
Pure clay pots can cook your slow cooking recipes in less than half the time – thanks to far infrared heat cooking, which spreads evenly in the pot and penetrates deep into food cooking it thoroughly. Cooking a bone broth with beef bones usually calls for 12-15 hours of cooking in a crock machine, this can be done in about 3 hours in a pure clay pot! And with chicken bones, it takes just 1.5 hours. It usually takes 1.5 hours for meats, 45 minutes – 1 hour for vegetarian recipes, beans or when cooking grains (which takes just 30 minutes on gas) — all on medium to low heat setting.
Green and 100% Healthy
Pure clay is 100% eco-friendly material. It is 100% “green” all the way through, from harvesting to the making of the pots and pans and even when it’s disposed at the end of its lifecycle (which can be decades long). At that point it can be composted as it is 100% bio-degradable and it nourishes the earth where it is disposed.
Miriam’s Earthen Cookware makes these pots in the USA. And besides these amazing features their line of cooking pots is 100% non-toxic, green, and healthy. This is possible because of the pure and natural raw material they use. And their cookware is made by hand on the potter’s wheel without using chemicals, glazes or enamels.
