100% Healthy Pure-Clay Cookware & Bakeware
Hand Made in USA

Your search for 100% Non-Toxic, Healthy & Green Cookware ends right here at Miriam’s Earthen Cookware!

If you’re cooking in metal or ceramic pots and pans chances are the pots ingredients (metals like chromium, nickel, titanium, aluminum and/or chemicals & oxides from ceramics like lead, cadmium, chromium) are leaching into your food. Also, the harsh form of heat destroys the core nutritional value of the food and water-soluble nutrients are lost with the steam constantly leaving the pot.

For something to be considered best, it has to fulfill its purpose 100%. Because of all its many features, we can guarantee that food is at its best, in both taste and nutritional value when cooked in MEC’s pure-clay cookware.

Pure-Clay Cookware: 100% Healthy, Non-Toxic & Green for You and the Planet, find out why?
Cooking with pure clay is as new as tomorrow and as old as time itself! It’s unique in that, this inert and nutrient rich composition of pure & all natural clay cooks your food without any additives like Metal Ions, Toxins or Glazes leaching into your food. They also have the ability to lock steam and cook with a gentle & unique form of heat that does not damage the foods nutrients.  So you get food that is nutritionally dense & very delicious.
When we as a civilization moved on from cooking in clay to cooking in shiny metals we realized that food was far less nutritious and had less taste.  More recently we’re finding out all about metal and chemical contamination from unhealthy & toxic cookware and the damage it can cause to our health.

By their innate nature all metals are reactive, from surgical steel to aluminum to titanium, if it’s not reactive it’s not metal — and food is a bio-chemical entity — so with heat acting as a cyclist, the metal ions, chemicals & oxides (from the ceramic material, glazes enamel etc) react with food and leach in.

But is it really toxic, what do these metals/chemicals do in the body?

First, they accumulate and thereby disrupt functions in vital organs and glands such as the heart, brain, kidneys, bone, liver, etc. Second, they replace vital nutritional minerals in the cells and tissues. For example, enzymes are catalysts for virtually every biochemical reaction in all life-sustaining processes. But instead of calcium being present in an enzyme reaction, nickel or chromium may be there in its place. Toxic metals cannot fulfill the same role as the nutritional minerals, thus their presence becomes critically disruptive to enzyme activity. Their action in the body is so fundamental that they are seen to cause and /or aid many diseases.

The other notably destructive factor is the heat from the walls of metal/ceramic pot is harsh and destructive. More than half the nutrients are dead and damaged by the end of the cooking process what remains is probably an excess of starch and carbohydrates.  Making us the 1st people to depend so heavily on synthetic and so called natural pills and supplements to fulfill our nutritional needs.

Thirdly, Steam is lost!   9 out of the 13 essential nutrients and minerals are water soluble and are inevitably lost with steam that’s constantly escaping the pot.

Briefly discussed below are some of the commonly used cookware and their effects:

  1. Non-stick Cookware:  

One chemical ingredient most common to non-stick cookware is perfluorooctanic acid (PFOA). This is a synthetic chemical that creates a soap-like slipperiness and the non-stick finish.  When heated, the PFOA quickly reaches temperatures high enough to release toxic flames into the air and food and has been known to produce serious changes in organs like the brain, prostrate, liver, thymus kidney showing toxicity.  It is also seen to cause changes in the pituitary glands, which is the organ that controls growth, reproduction and many metabolic functions, as observed in lab tests and animal studies.

  1. Aluminum Cookware

Aluminum is a reactive soft metal.  It easily reacts with the different food and releases the metal into the food.  In fact, there is today enough evidence to prove that there is a strong connection between Aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease.  Chronic aluminum exposure has contributed directly to hepatic failure, renal failure and dementia (Arieff et al., 1979).  Other symptoms that have been observed in individuals with high internal concentrations of aluminum are colic, convulsions, esophagitis, gastroenteritis, kidney damage, liver dysfunction, loss of appetite, loss of balance, muscle pain, psychosis, shortness of breath, weakness, and fatigue (ATSDR 1990).  Behavioral difficulties among schoolchildren have also been correlated with elevated levels of aluminum and other neuro-toxic heavy metals (Goyer 1991).  What is still more alarming is the fact that aluminum toxicity can even cause birth defects in newborns.

  1. Cast Iron Cookware

Iron occurs in its ferric and ferrous form.  Cast iron cookware contains iron in its ferric form and that cannot be assimilated or digested by our bodies.  It has no value to our bodies in the cellular level.  In fact, it is very harmful to people who are allergic to heavy metals, and can lead to auto immune problems.  This ferric form of iron when combined with the oxygen in the body, can release oxygen-free radicals, which are unstable molecules.  And studies now show that the damage caused by these unstable molecules known as free radicals may be the cause for many forms of cancer (National Cancer Institute).

  1. Stainless Steel Cookware

Stainless steel is made up of a combination of various metals like iron, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, carbon etc.  But it is no consolation that these metals are in smaller quantities because even small amounts of these metals can prove extremely toxic.  For instance, a very small amount of concentration of nickel can cause kidney dysfunction, low blood pressure, muscle tremors, oral cancer, skin problems etc.  And this is just from one of the metals.

How about Glass and Ceramic, Glazed or Enamel ware?

Pure glass which is made from natural sand is also 100% inert but it cannot be used for cooking (pure-glass shatters when heated).  In order for glass to be used for cooking it has to be shock resistant and Lead is used to gives these wares shock resistance and uniformity in color.

The ceramic material is made up of many chemicals, metals and minerals obtained by fracking and other environmentally destructive means of mining.  These chemicals include but are not limited to barium, cadmium, chrome, cobalt, lead, lithium, nickel, selenium and vanadium, silicon dioxide, feldspar, silicon carbide, magnesium oxide, petalite (an ore of lithium).  And all of these raw materials range in toxicity from mild to highly toxic.   Because is it a mixture of individually mined chemicals/ metal oxides it has to be fired to very high temperatures to fuse.  In order for food to not come in contact with these chemicals, so called ‘food safe’ glazes and enamels are used.  These glazes or enamels are a paint like substance with their own set of chemicals/toxins including lead and cadmium which poison food every time it’s cooked in them.

~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.
