After thorough research for the best design for pans, this one turned out to be the winner! Non-reactive cooking pans that cook food deliciously and nutritiously with far-infrared heat. Experience cooking all your food in the healthiest way possible.
NO Additives, Extenders, Dyes, Plasticizers or chemicals used. No glaze used so no toxins there as well. Each piece is individually handcrafted & hand finished.
Naturally Steam Condensing/Preserving:
The steam condenses naturally because of a cooler underside of the lid, more information on MEC’s excellent steam management properties are explained here. No more nutrient-destructive heat, the pot cares for your food as much as you do. The gentler far-infrared heat from the pot cooks without destroying nutrients.
Increase temperature from low to medium in 5 minutes and cook on medium heat. Maximum heat setting on stove-top is medium heat (5 or 6 on a scale of 1-10).
Healthy, long-lasting cooking pans — The most natural way to cooking.
Both the lid w/ knob and the pot w/ handles are entirely thrown on a high spinning wheel (not pressed or poured). This makes each individual clay platelet interlock with each other making the finished product far more durable and long-lasting.
- This size lets you cook for 2-4 people.
- Terra-sigillata finish without the use of chemical glaze gives it a unique, soft sheen.
- Hand burnished on the inside making it naturally non-stick.
- Made from natural clay, handles stay cooler and can go from stovetop/oven to serving table.
Tested & Certified 100% Pure-Clay. No Lead, Cadmium other Metals or Toxins.
What is the purpose of the differently shaped lids? Why does the pan have a cone-shaped lid?
The reason the pan’s lid is more cone shaped is the pan has shorter walls and is shallow (compared to the pot), and the slightly “taller” cone-shaped lid helps to condense steam naturally. The pots have a regular shaped lid because of their taller walls, they do not require their lid to be “higher” to do the same thing – condense steam.

“I love my clay pots! It feels good knowing there are no metals or chemicals leaching into my healthily cooked meals. I like the fact that no oil is required to cook… I just use a small layer of water. It is also nice that they can go in the oven or on the stove top. It did take me some time to perfect cooking with clay because it is very different than using metal pots. It literally changed my understanding of and approach to cooking. Totally worth it!“
