Ozeri Corporation says using ceramic cookware provides health and lifestyle benefits without losing any performance aspects of traditional cookware. The manufacturer of high-end digital products, such as kitchen scales and pedometers, notes that ceramic cookware achieves equal to better than non-stick performance over other cookware brands, while remaining absolutely free of PFOA, cadmium, lead and other harmful chemicals found in traditional cookware. PFOA stands for PerFluorooctanoic Acid which is known as a pollutant to the environment and has been under investigation by the EPA.
Ceramic cookware can be heated to very high temperatures, which is beneficial when preparing foods that require quick sautéing or flash frying, and the ceramic stays hot after being removed from the heat, keeping food warm while waiting on other dishes.
Conventional cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’. With the Ozeri cookware, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because Ozeri’s ceramic pans utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature – not from a laboratory.
In addition, ceramic cookware allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and makes cleaning is a breeze. Ozeri cookware is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots, an important criterion among chefs.
