Among the many uses for these pots, they make an excellent natural pressure cooker for your beans, lentils and meats. But unlike a regular metal pressure pot they don’t force steam to stay inside, rather, allow the rising steam to condense naturally and go right back into the food. How this unique feature is possible is explained below but in essence the best pressure cooker is one that can cook your food in the healthiest way retaining the steam and locking in the essential water-soluble nutrients and MEC does just that.
Another feature unique to these pots are its ability to “breath” (being semi-porous). This allows excess moisture to evaporate after the cooking process allowing grains to get fluffier. The gentle heat cooks them to a soft consistency. No wonder customers have graded them to be their best rice cooker. Here is an one excerpt:
“I was so impressed with the way brown rice cooked in my small pot, the flavor and texture was unlike anything I have experienced in cooking so far. And oatmeal, my pot makes such amazing oatmeal. I typically don’t even like oatmeal, but the way that it cooks in the pot makes the texture and the flavor just amazing. It’s like food as it was meant to be!”

Naturally Steam Condensing/Preserving
Unlike traditional metal pressure cookers, the steam condenses naturally because of a cool underside of the lid. Thus the nutritional value of food improves greatly. While cooking rice and grains, the food-friendly heat penetrates deep into every grain and cooks them thoroughly and evenly. No more harsh heat from metals and ceramics that destroys nutrients, the pot cares for your food as much as you do.

“This is the best cookware I’ve had in a long time. I am using less oil & water with my pot, but the food tastes so rich and delicious! I love the design too… Thanks so much!”

“Dear Miriam, I just finished cooking with your pot for the first time. It was fantastic. I am not someone who is good in the kitchen, but your directions are very clear, and the process felt very natural. I will definitely be buying more pots for myself, to cook a few things at the same time, and to keep one at another place I stay (so I don’t have to pack the pot back-and-forth). This is the only pot I will cook with from now on. Thank you“
