Among the many uses for these pots, they make an excellent natural pressure cooker for your beans, lentils and meats. But unlike the regular pressure cooker 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 by condensing and retaining steam naturally it locks the essential water-soluble nutrients in food! What cookware can do that?
Another feature unique to these pots are its ability to “breath” (they are semi-porous). This makes available oxygen to the food while cooking, helping to retain color, freshness and nutrients.
The gentle heat cooks all ingredients to a soft consistency. This is clearly evident with grains, no wonder customers have graded it to be their “best rice cooker”. Here is an one excerpt:
“I was so impressed with the way brown rice cooked in my MEC 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, greatly improving the nutritional value of food. While cooking rice and grains, the food-friendly heat penetrates deep into every grain and cooks them thoroughly and evenly.
