After thorough research for the best design for pans, this one turned out to be the winner! These are the only 100% Non-reactive cooking pans that cook food deliciously and nutritiously with natural far-infrared heat. Experience clay pot cooking in the healthiest way possible. While MEC is considered the Safest Cookware for many reasons, one that stands out is its commitment to not use any additives or toxins what-so-ever in the making and finishing.
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.
- Large size lets you cook for 4-7 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 cool and can go from stove-top/oven to serving table.
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 it to condense steam naturally. The pots have a regular shaped lid as because of their taller walls, they do not require their lid to be tall to do the same thing – condense steam.
NO Additives, Extenders, Dyes, Plasticizers or chemicals used. No glaze used so no toxins there as well. Each piece is individually handcrafted & hand finished.

“In a day and age when it seems everything is fast, furious and full of toxins, Miriam’s Earthen Cookware is like a breath of fresh air. I was a little hesitant at first but the more I use it the better they are. I love cooking beans and rice in mine. Thank you Miriam for a best option for those of us who take the care of our bodies and families very seriously.”
“I had been searching for cookware that was free of all Teflon, lead, aluminium etc and this hit the spot! I took me a while to learn how to cook with it to obtain the best results…the customer service I received was excellent. They were willing to answer any queries I had about something not being spot on. And I have made the BEST roast chicken, BEST steamed vegetables (so sweet and crunchy) and some awesome lentils and beans. It is true…it works like a pressure cooker so beans are cooked in record time and the more you use it the better it gets! Thank you MEC“
