I am often asked about my recommendations for cookware. The way you prepare your food is just as important as the food you are preparing. You want to retain as many nutrients as possible. It is a well known fact that non-stick cookware is an unhealthy choice. The chemicals leech into your food and are known endocrine disruptors. Yes, those teflon pans may be inexpensive and convenient, but the cost to your health is way too high.
Ceramic coated cookware really isn’t a better choice either due to chemicals in the ceramic and the possibily of lead.
Aluminum? Definitely stay away from it.
Enameld cast iron is a great choice (as is regular cast iron, depending on what you’re cooking) – everyone should have at least an enameled cast iron dutch oven in their cupboard. The only downside is price….these babies are tough on the budget.
For my day to day use, I am a fan of high quality stainless steel cookware. Some brands are better than others. My top preference is stainless steel waterless cookware. A brand that I recently became aware of is 360 Cookware. Manufacted right here in the great old US of A.
Not only is this brand made from high quality stainless steel, they use vapor technology. Which means, that you can cook at lower temps and without the need for oils or water. And to top it all off, it comes with a lifetime warranty.
360 Cookware products are all made with the following features and benefits:
• Multiple layers T-304 stainless steel (highest quality) and alloy construction
• Ergonomic, stay-cool handles
• US owned and made by 1 of America’s greenest companies
• Lifetime warranty
• Vapor technology cooks food faster & more evenly with less energy
• No need to add grease or water
• Oven-safe to 400º
• Bakes on stovetop
I have used other high end waterless cookware brands before and I think the 360 brand is on par with those. Cooking with them takes a little getting used to, but once you’ve mastered it, you’ll never turn back. Read more here
