Most home cooks know that Teflon-coated nonstick cookware can add dangerous chemicals to your foods as you cook. But even newer, ceramic-coated metal cookware—which is often advertised as being “green”—contains synthetic bonding materials and chemicals like PFOA, which has also been shown to cause cancer and other serious health problems.
Remove the coating, and most metal cookware poses similar risks. Aluminum, copper, stainless steel and cast-iron cookware can leach heavy metals and toxic chemicals into foods at high temperatures—changing the flavor and health profile of your favorite foods.
Xtrema® cookware is different. Made from 100% ceramic, Xtrema® is all-natural, non-toxic, inorganic and nonreactive. From the ceramic glaze to the core, it contains no metal, cadmium, lead, PFOA, PTFE, glues, polymers, coatings or dyes. Most importantly, Xtrema® cookware will never leach chemicals or change the taste of your food.
For thousands of years, across many cultures, cooks have been drawn to the versatility and superior conduction of clay and ceramic cookware. Xtrema® cookware brings this age-old, time-tested cooking and baking technology into your home kitchen.
Ceramic heats evenly and generates far-infrared energy, to cook food from both the inside and the outside at the same time. At the same time, it can withstand extremely high and low temperatures without breaking or reacting to food.
By efficiently and effectively capturing heat energy, Xtrema® can be used to cook food at lower temperatures–locking in the full flavor and moisture of your favorite foods. You can even use the same piece of cookware to prep, combine, cook and serve–reducing the number of dishes you need to store, use and wash. Before, during, and after every meal, Xtrema® cookware transforms your cooking and dining routine.
