You consider yourself a great cook and have all the right ingredients in place for your next special dish but you might still be missing out on one important aspect of cooking – the cookware. This may sound surprising to some, but did you know the nutritional value and taste of food is greatly affected by the cooking pot?
We, in the modern generation, might consider ourselves more intelligent than our ancestors due to our numerous innovations in the field of science but not all our innovations are as great as they seem. For instance, our ancestors used to cook food in cookware made of clay and they didn’t feel the need to change this practice for several thousand years (although they knew how to work with and used metals since the beginning). But in the past few centuries, we have experimented with different kinds of materials to make utensils and cookware in order to make cooking easier and faster. While doing so, we have not only created huge risks for our health by using materials that impart toxic metals and chemicals into the food but we have also forgotten the usefulness of natural materials for cookware.
Just like the old times, clay cookware is the best choice for healthy, clean and green cooking. But today in addition to choosing clay pots, you need to make sure they are made from pure-clay (primary clay) and made without additives. Just like everything else made today, even clay pots are predominantly made using cheaply available chemicals. This is used in order to speed up manufacturing and yield uniform results with little effort. But if the pot is contaminated so will the food be also. So, one has to choose wisely there. As long as you choose pure clay, here are some of its main benefits:
Pure-clay is different from other clay pots in that it is made only using 100% primary clay without the use of any chemicals or additives. Primary clay is the highest quality natural clay and when pots are made only using this material, they have many health benefits.
1. These are the only pots that can cook without interfering with the food.
2. They cook with heat that doesn’t destroy nutrients
3. When designed the right way, they can naturally condense and retain steam (water-soluble nutrients)
4. Since this material is a great retainer of heat, your food stays warm for a long time, almost 4x longer.
5. They are the eco-friendliest material to make cookware — 100% renewable and green while cooking too…
6. They can cook all your food in less than 1/2 the heat.
