I own a small cafe on an island off the outer banks. Last year I decided to open a shop and make homemade greek yogurt. I did a lot of research on the best way to make my yogurt and what method would deliver the best results. Utilizing clay pots was a suggestion I wanted to pursue so I looked for a source to procure them. I found Miriam and ordered a few to test them. I am a believer! Not only are these pots beautifully made and sturdy but they produce the most delicious yogurt! I am starting the process of opening my shop a few evenings a week for a two dish menu. My menu each week will be a small selection of savory dishes made in my clay pots. A month after receiving my initial order, I placed another much larger order since my demand is continuing to increase I'm so excited and it's such a unique style of creating amazing dishes. Thank you!

Members of the family!

Miriam's earthen pots are unlike cooking pots altogether, they are like members of the family. I feel like i am creating ritual rather than cooking. they love to dry in the sunshine, and then the soup tastes brighter for it. i like to cook with them mostly on the stove, but i have also an induction plate that i can timer set and works a treat with my big pot as a slow cooker. I will never buy another type of pot. true as.

The real deal clay pot

I just recently bought my clay pot and I can tell the difference between cooking in my clay pot and cooking with my other pots and pans. It is a wonderful experience. I know that I am truly cooking food at its absolute best with absolutlely no toxins or pollutants contaminating my food. I am very happy with this purchase. You will not regret this purchase. Thank you Miriam for making the BEST clay pots out there!!

I will definitely be buying more pots for myself...

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

In 2005 I was diagnosed with eight heavy metals in toxic ranges and mold. Scaring me I played ostrich (head in sand) so didn't address it until January 2011. When finally I did, my immune system was so severely undermined that in 2012 some of my organs were shutting down. Living with pain, insomnia, no temperature control, and serious, deep distress, I eventually asked my doctor if I was dying. Gratefully not and I've been committed to my physical healing ever since. Research led me to information that pots and pans can leach cadmium, nickel, lead, arsenic, and a not so bioavailable iron. I buy organic, grass-fed, free-range, pastured (not pasteurized) food, so the last thing I want is to add to my toxic overload when cooking my healthy food. Finding Miriam's Earthen Cookware(*) I began to switch over to their Pure Clay cookware... slowly at first. There’s a learning curve when going from stainless steel, cast iron, Corning Ware and glass to cooking in clay. I had to slow down, be more mindful, attentive to different details like the fact that clay pots can crack and break if banged, dropped or subjected to sudden big temperature changes (IE. cold fridge to hot stove). I learned to start cooking on low heat, giving it 5ish minutes then turning the heat up to medium (no higher… not necessary). I treat my MEC(*) more carefully and respectfully, which focuses me on being more present with what I'm doing. Plus bonus, cooking is becoming a calming ritual of peaceful food prep. Food also tastes better cooked in Pure, Natural, Mineral-Rich, Unglazed Clay. And I feel safer knowing MEC(*) is Certified & Guaranteed to have NO Lead, Cadmium, Heavy Metals, Glaze or Toxins of any kind. Thank you Miriam and family for being a company committed to providing a most integral product line for those of us who need the purest, safest and healthiest cookware. I appreciate your generous, caring customer service, your willingness to receive requests to fill specific needs (IE. garlic roaster and bread baker) plus your follow through on designing & handcrafting new products (IE. bowls and mugs). It’s truly a pleasure and a blessing doing business with you. To your continued and growing success for the health of us all! Gratitude, LoreLoreina Acevedo (*)Miriam’s Earthen Cookware… MEC

I am amazed at how much heat these pots hold! The food stays hot for hours. They can also preserve food for longer periods of time without refrigeration. I love these pots – they’re truly amazing

Makes non toxic, delicious food

I purchased a large tagine and cooked wonderfully easy and delicious meals in it. This was the ONLY all natural and completely non toxic pan I could find. It gave me such a piece of mind cooking my family's food in it. Unfortunately, it was dropped and it broke. So sad! If it was more affordable I would love to buy another.

Food turned out fantastic…

I just received my package. All my pots came intact – very well packed. I was afraid how they’d make it considering the distance (all the way to Australia)… And they look BEAUTIFUL! I don’t know who’s making terra-sigillata anymore. With the introduction of chemical glaze no one takes the time to finish in this natural method, but it makes the pots so much easier to use. It’s funny how people don’t realize how hard it is to clean food off of glazed utensils. It’s so easy when finished in this way; in fact it’s very hard for food to stick in the 1st place. I made a chickpeas with spinach recipe, it came out fantastic… Thank-you!

I don’t know how to Thank You enough!

Miriam, Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Secondly, I thought you would like to know, I LOVE THEM! I cured them by cooking porridge, and letting it sit for over a day. The clay and the rice soaks up the broth, creating this wonderful aroma which brings back memories of the days when my grandmother used to cook with her clay pots over a charcoal stove outside her house. The wonderful memories of curry stewing and rice cooking. I don’t know how to Thank You enough! Keep making these wonderful pots! I will be back for more pretty soon. I am planning to dedicate 1 pot to 1 type of cooking to allow the clay to soak in the spices of the food and creates its own personality.

I received my pots!

Hi Miriam, Thanks a lot for bringing back clay cookware. The whole world is suffering from diseases as cookware contaminates the food...

The food tastes exceptional.

Although I know all-natural clay is inert and non-toxic, I did the test to check for toxicity anyway – it passed by 200%. I am so happy to finally cook with non-toxic cookware!! You can’t imagine how much that means to me and my family. The food tastes exceptional.

Absolutely BEST cookware ever

Enjoying every meal I make on this cookware. I grew up cooking with clay pots, but sadly those pots were not free of contaminants. However, Miriam's cookware is made free of contaminants and is non toxic! So spending the money on these non toxic pots to cook my organic food is really is the best to insure that what I am putting into my body and that of my family is of the best quality possible. Taste can't be beat. Everything is delicious and perfect. My son in Japan first bought Miriam's cookware after a long search for such a product. Once he used MEC pots, he purchased 3 pots for me for my birthday this year. What a great gift and son. MEC Customer service is excellent as well. Within a few minutes of sending an email explaining a pot had some cracks in it, I received a call. My problem is being handled quickly and I will get my replacement pot soon. No company we have ever purchased anything from before has this quick, understanding, honest, and good customer service! Thank you MEC for living up to your high standards. I will be telling the rest of my family and friends to purchase your pots! Do yourself a favor, if you are looking to purchase pots, you found the right place at MEC. Buy them without fear. They really are excellent!

Can’t thank you enough for making these beautiful and extremely useful pots...

I recently came from India and was very sick since my stroke in 2011. My daughter got me the set of 3 MEC pure clay pots and we’ve been cooking in them ever since. There is so much difference in the way I feel. My therapist and my doctors cannot believe there is so much improvement in the way my body is functioning, my muscles are much stronger and more receptive to exercises and flexing, all my joint pain is gone… my energy levels are clearly higher. I am used to eating the same healthy food I eat now; the only difference is now I cook it in pure clay. I’ve made more progress in these short six months than in the past 2 years. I really think the lack of metals in the food and the fact that I am getting all the nutrients from the cooked food versus just half or less in metals is making all the difference in my recovery. It’s amazing how powerful nature really is! I can’t thank you enough for making these beautiful and extremely useful pots. Waiting to get my hands on the pans now… May God bless you,

MEC clay pots are the best...

Miriam's earthen clay pots are the best cooking vessels I have ever used. I have tried pressure cookers, stainless, enameled pans, you name it, it has been on my stove top at one point or another. I even used a crock pot with a ceramic glazed insert to cook beans in. What is interesting, is that one day a few weeks ago, I just got tired of the metal taste I tasted every time I used my pots. So, I went looking for a clay pot by instinct and just happened to come to Miriam's earthen cookware. On a hunch, without even reading her full site, I just bought one. When it arrived, I followed the seasoning directions and the next day, after letting it "cure " overnight, I cooked up my first meal. But it wasn't for me but my three golden retrievers. It consisted of lentils, sweet potatoes and carrots, and some ghee. Well, if dogs are a barometer, as their chow was cooking, the whole house filled with this lovely food aroma I have never smelled before. It smelled like 'FOOD." When serving time came, three tails were whipping around with delight. I put a little in a bowl for myself and fed the dogs. We all ate in silence, shocked at the quality of the food and no metal taste.

Then, I went back to Miriam's website to learn what she was about. And to put it simply, to make a new cooking pot, Miriam went back to ancient history, where all cooking vessels were made of clay. Metal is a modern invention and one that should never have been taken. Cooking spaghetti in an aluminum pot,... that's what my mother used to do. All completely idiotic and stupid, The denizens of making a buck, sold us all down the river for something that was horrible for our food and health. All those toxic metals, including aluminum, they go right into your food because heat is a catalyst and leaches the metals out.

So, the first thing I did after eating my first small lentil meal, was to put my first metal pressure cooker up for sale. And all my Le Creuset cookware that I thought I was married to, it is gone. There is simply no comparison. The clay is healthy and the other pots are junk compared to the taste. And if you doubt it, go to her site and do the baking soda test of your metal cookware. The taste that comes out of these metal pots is nothing short of disgusting.

So, if you want to save your health, and even your dogs health, cook in Miriam's clay pots. Read her site. All the science is there.

I will never cook in anything metal or enameled ever again. Miriam's earthen cookware is simply the best cooking vessel in the world.

This is the best cookware I’ve had in a long time...

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!

I've been cooking in your pots for a year now and I haven’t burned my fingers, hands! Thank God. You don’t know what a big deal this is to me… I had a painful burn to show almost every 15-20 days when I was cooking with metals (busy mom, sometimes have to cook with crying kids in the background). But not anymore, this is a big factor you know and you should advertise it too… especially with busy people like us. The food is fully cooked before the pot’s handles can even get real hot. And I love the design!! The food tastes great and to know that am not feeding my kids metals is great relief! Thank you, thanks very much! My Best to you,

I have never had food cooked so...

I am so happy and thankful to have been introduced to your clay pots by a friend. I was a little apprehensive because this was my first time cooking in clay pots. I must tell you, i have never had food cooked so rich and delicious and moist before. Your website is so helpful and so informative - it gave me the confidence to start cooking in my clay pots. I have had the pots for a little over 2 months now. I have cooked rice, lentils, vegetables, chicken, and made yogurt in my pot. I had my doubts about the lentils cooking as soft as they cook in my pressure cooker, but the lentils cook a whole lot better in the clay pot - they are deliciously soft and yet remain whole, never become a mushy paste. My whole family has noticed the difference in flavor of the food since i have started cooking in my clay pots, and they all love it. I am going to cook our turkey in the oven in the clay pot tomorrow. :) Thank you. Our very Best Wishes to you...
