Ceramic Cookware

Since ceramic cookware performs just as well in the microwave as well as the conventional oven, most cooks consider the cookware an integral addition to their cookware collection. Ceramic cookware can also add beauty to a kitchen since they come in countless colors, patterns, and sizes. And, compared to stainless, cast iron, and other metal cookware, ceramic cookware is an exceptional bargain.

Since it has a glazed finish, most ceramic cookware produced today is considered non-stick cookware. Comprised of a metal base and overlaid with a mineral based coating, ceramic cookware's end result is a porcelain-like finish that withstands extreme temperatures. The finish offered on ceramic cookware will not usually scratch, fade, rust, or peel since it is a hard, brilliant finish.

Ceramic cookware includes pots and pans, baking sets, utensils, and most any other type of vessel you already have in your kitchen. Ceramic cookware is versatile since it can be used in the oven, in the microwave oven, as well as on the stovetop. Ceramics can be used in direct heat, as well, such as over an open flame on your gas range or your outdoor grill. Thus, ceramic cookware lends itself exceptionally well for roasting, grilling, broiling, baking, and general cooking. You can even freeze foods inside of ceramic cookware, and then take it directly from the freezer into your hot oven.

If you're thinking that ceramic cookware is heavy, then think again. Some lines of ceramic cookware that are extremely lightweight, yet very durable. They incorporate ultra thin ceramic glazes over a metal base, which make for very easy cleanup. In fact, in some instances all you need do is rinse the cookware before storing it. There is no need for scouring pads and heavy chemicals when using ceramic cookware, since the surface of the cookware is virtually non-stick.

A word of warning for when purchasing ceramic cookware outside of the United States; some foreign manufacturers use lead in the production of their cookware. If you use such cookware, the lead can leach into the foods that you eat. This may lead to illness or death. If you purchase ceramic cookware from foreign countries, and unless they have a certificate certifying that their products are 100% lead-free, use their ceramic pieces as decoration only.
