This is How You Choose the Best Dutch Oven
Best Dutch Oven Pot: Which One is Healthy?
A truly healthy Dutch oven pot would be one that doesn’t leach toxins into food while cooking. When choosing the best Dutch oven pot for our kitchen, we look at the shape, size, and weight. Just to make sure if it would be easy to handle and clean while fully serving the purpose of cooking in it. But do these things ensure its health? No, they don’t!
Dutch oven pots are conventionally made from metals like cast iron, aluminum, stainless steel etc. or ceramics. All metals, chemicals, glazes, enamels etc. leach toxins [chemicals like Cadmium, Lead, Petalite (Lithium) and metal ions like Al-Aluminum, Ni-Nickel (steel), Ti– Titanium (steel), Mo – Molybdenum (steel), Cr-Chromium (steel), Fe-Iron (steel)] into food while cooking. The metal ions and chemicals and oxides from ceramics react with food with heat acting as a catalyst.
These toxins assimilate with food and accumulate in the body, causing health problems and a compromised immune system.
The bottom line is – the material of a Dutch oven pot is what makes it “healthy”. Thankfully, mother nature has already blessed us with a material that is naturally inert and non-toxic – pure clay. It is a proven healthy material that had been used for ages for cookware. Until few decades ago when we deviated from it and invited all sorts of health problems!
Best Dutch Oven Pot: Check For Toxicity First!
It’s OK if it still sounds unbelievable to some, all you need is some baking soda and you can check any cookware for toxicity. Here are the steps:
- Boil 2-3 cups of water in any pot, when it starts boiling add 2 tsp of baking soda. Boil for 5 more mins. Turn stove off.
- Wait till cool enough to taste then taste the water (take a sip). If you taste metals, that’s what you’re eating! If water has a rubber/paint taste it’s the chemicals from enamel/glaze.
As a control, stir 2 tsp of baking soda to 1 glass of water and take a sip — you will taste just the baking soda.
Guess which material passed this test? The only all-natural material — pure clay!
