100% Natural Cookware: A Note Regarding Surface Imperfections


In order to provide to you the safest cookware, all of Miriams Earthen Cookware are made from the highest quality 100% pure and primary clay.  And they are handmade without using any additives throughout the making process, i.e processing of the clay, making, finishing or firing of the pots. No glazes are used to cover imperfections either, so it is very natural for minor surface imperfections to be present.

Also note, we don’t guarantee a perfect, machine cut fit for lids.  Utmost care is taken to ensure they are made to fit well on the pots but without the use of any additives to control or inhibit the clay’s natural shrinking properties.  For your benefit, we have individually hand-marked with a pencil, the best fit for some lids that sit better at one position than others. These pencil marks can be easily erased with a regular pencil eraser, if you don’t need them.

It is not a perfectly fitting lid that locks steam inside your MEC pots and pans. There are many other unique features that contribute to this benefit and you can read about it here: MEC’s Steam Management Properties Explained.

The imperfections on the ‘Alternate line’ are more pronounced than the ones on the ‘Regular line’.
