How To Choose The Best Pots And Pans Set
Choosing The Best Pots And Pans Set
While choosing the best pots and pans set, it is important to look for the perfect shape, size, weight, color, and design. But one thing that is even more important is what material it’s made of. Obviously, their primary purpose is cooking and the material directly affects the complete health of food cooked in it.
Metals (like cast iron, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium etc.) and ceramics are the most widely used materials for making pots and pans set. Ceramics are made from ceramic clay, porcelain and stoneware (a composition of inorganic oxides, metals & chemicals). The glazes and enamels used for coating them are a composition of different chemicals, oxides, and metals.
What’s Wrong With Metals And Ceramics?
All metals have an innate property of reactively leaching metal ions into food, especially at the cooking temperature (heat is a catalyst). They then get into the gut system and are digested with food. But they have no nutritional value in the body. These metal toxins accumulate in tissues and organs and become the foundation for various illnesses and diseases. Also, the immune system is compromised which makes it hard for the body to fight diseases.
When you go out to buy the best pots and pans for your family, it is mandatory to pay close attention to the raw material. The best raw material is one that is 100% inert (non-reactive to food) and free from chemicals, glazes, and enamels.
“MEC’s pure-clay cookware fully serves this purpose.”, says Tina. She’s an enlightened healthy cook confident about her choice of healthy pots and pans. Pure-clay is a naturally 100% inert (non-reactive) material. It is harvested from unfarmed and non-industrialized lands in USA by Miriams Earthen Cookware.
MEC makes the best pots and pans set using certified pure-clay. They do not use any chemicals or glazes in the process. So it remains non-toxic. A simple alkaline baking soda test is enough to prove this fact. Here’s how you can do it at home:
- 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.
