When Roy Plunkett in 1938 serendipitously invented Polytetrafluoroethylene, PTFE, or so-called “Teflon,” the world of culinary was changed forever. Non-stick and easy-to-use pans and baking trays have conquered the hearts of many professional chefs and amateur homemakers.
But later, the highly praised Teflon coated cookware turned out to be a curse rather than a blessing. PTFE is a highly toxic chemical, which is poisoning us every day. Should we let our pans gradually kill us or find a healthy substitute right now?
Many people have already switched to the cookware made of safe for one’s health materials. Therefore, choosing the best ceramic cookware might be the solution you seek.
Here are 6 top benefits of ceramic kitchenware as well-described by Cookwares.co:
It’s 100% Safe
The usage of pottery for cooking was practiced by people long before the Common Era. Nowadays, the process of creating ceramic cookware is very elaborated. It is an updated version of the methods used by ancient people. The pans, pots or trays are fried up in a kiln and then dipped in a glaze. It makes them toxin-free, safe for your health and environment. But the most important is the fact that no traces of Teflon are found in this type of kitchenware. Nothing to worry about.
Easy To Clean
A long time ago, when I stayed at my fiancé’s house for the first time, I wanted to surprise him with a delicious breakfast. Everything had been going according to my plan, but then… The scrambled eggs literally stuck to the pan. No matter how I tried, I could not clean its surface. It was a nightmare!
Ceramic cookware will prevent you from having such embarrassing moments. The food does not stick to its surface. And it’s very easy to clean — the dream of every cooking lover.
Say ‘No’ To Excessive Oil
All kinds of oils contribute to arterial damage and the progression of heart disease. But unfortunately, for many people frying is associated with an excessive amount of fat. How to enjoy chicken sticks or French fries and minimize the harm to your health at the same time, is not a riddle anymore. The usage of ceramic pans does not require a lot of oil to cook with. In fact, many products can be prepared without any additional fat if you use this type of cookware.
It Suits Every Pocket
Don’t worry about the cost of such convenient kitchenware. The range of prices for ceramic cookware is very wide. It, indeed, fits any budget. The cost usually depends on the quality and quantity of ceramics. But it is worth every penny. However, from my personal experience, I would not recommend buying the most low-priced model. As people say, the cheapest is the dearest. It’s always better to pay more but ensure that the item will be used for a long time.
Quality Is Key
In the era when the spectrum of choices a customer has is extremely wide, the best advertisement is high quality. Nowadays, it is the buyer who is always right. Creating and selling a product that leaves a lot to be desired means having a lot of negative opinions on the internet from dissatisfied clients. The number of customers drops immediately in such a scenario. Therefore, selling a high-quality product and leaving the customer satisfied with it, is an utmost priority for many ceramic cookware producers. They are usually produced by excellent materials and are tested before starting to be sold.
“Let it soak”. Does this phrase sound familiar? Being very different and unique, most of us have one thing in common. We all hate hand-washing our pans after cooking. Very often, they end up soaking in the sink for a couple of days. Unfortunately, most pans and baking trays cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher. Otherwise, they can be damaged. However, this is not the case when it comes to ceramic cooking sets. The material they are made of is dishwasher safe. Therefore, you will not destroy your favorite cookware set by cleaning it in the machine. You don’t have to get annoyed by washing a greasy and sticky skillet by hand anymore if you are a ceramic kitchenware owner.
No matter whether you are an amateur or a professional chef, I hope my personal experience has cleared up your doubts about ceramic cookware, and my article was useful for you. Good luck in your search for a perfect cookware set. I hope you will make the right choice.
