There is quite a craze out now for ceramic cookware but is it really ceramic cookware?
Most cookware on the market that totes they are green ceramic cookware are really just metal cookware with an untested ceramic coated non-stick coating shell that won’t last more than 1-2 years. Then what? Well your left with an unsafe metal core which has the potential to leach heavy metal toxins into your body.
This is what the pioneer of whole foods, Rebecca Wood has to say about ceramic coated cookware:
“Green “Ceramic” Non-Stick Knives and Cookware Ceramic coatings are made when a
chemically based polymer commingles with an anodized metal surface. This synthetic
substance may contain toxic metals like arsenic.
As chemical based polymer coatings are softer than metal, with normal use, the polymer
degrades. The life expectancy of a nonstick ceramic coated pot or knife is about one year. Once the
synthetic coating wears thin, pits or scratches then toxic metals, like lead and cadmium can leach
into foodstuffs. This coating itself may contain toxic metals like arsenic.
Note: Avoid all ceramic coated cookware. However superior 100% ceramic knives and cookware
made from natural substances is non-reactive. Furthermore, cooking in ceramic enhances the
flavor of foods as per the link cited above.” — R. Wood.
