Made of inorganic and nonreactive materials, pure ceramic offers many advantages over metal and cookware made of other materials. Due to its design and durable construction, ceramic cookware is also very versatile. If you've ever wondered about the versatility of ceramics, you can find all the answers here.

How is Ceramic So Versatile?

Xtrema ceramic cookware was thoughtfully engineered by kitchenware experts to be endlessly adaptable and durable. Taking inspiration from 10,000 years of ceramic innovation, our signature cookware is handcrafted in a manufacturing process that takes 20 days from start to finish. Each piece is formed in a high-pressure casting mold and is triple-fired at 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit for extra strength and durability. Although our cookware features ceramic at its core, we also finish each pot and pan with a ceramic glaze that resists scratches and stains. As a result, ceramic cookware can be used in a variety of ways, allowing you to explore your culinary talents and expand your horizons.

This process also allows our pots and pans to survive in or on any cooking surface, including the grill, microwave, oven, stovetop, and more. Unlike non-stick metal cookware, ceramic cookware has only a natural ceramic glaze to prevent breakage from thermal shock and ensure that nothing leaches into the food you prepare or affects the taste of the meals you prepare. In fact, ceramic cookware can withstand temperatures up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas other cookware begins to melt at only 1,221 degrees. Best of all, you can store your leftovers in the fridge or freezer all in the same pan, so there's no need to break out the food storage containers or dirty any extra dishes.

Grill-Safe: If you care about where your food comes or the nutritional value of the meals you serve, you should care about the materials you use to cook with too. Our versatile skillets and woks are perfect for preparing a nutritious meal on an outdoor grill. Ditch the traditional burgers or hot dogs and opt for a healthy, grilled alternative instead. Ceramic pots and pans can handle the high heat that comes with an open flame. Use your ceramic cookware for all those summer barbecues or grilling for special occasions. From pork tenderloin to salmon fillets, we are confident that you will instantly taste the difference.

Microwave-Safe: With the average day being so busy, microwave meals provide a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of everyday cooking. Microwave ovens allow us to cook in shorter bursts of time, but some people have become wary of the chemicals and plastics that can leach into food while it's being microwaved. However, pure ceramic cookware does not contain bisphenol-A (BPA) or phthalates, the two ingredients used to produce plastic products. One of the nicest things about microwaving is that it takes less time and makes it easier to preserve extra nutrients. Plus, our ceramic pots and pans are not only attractive but also resistant to thermal shock, so you can take them straight from the microwave to the dinner table for easy serving. Use our ceramic cookware to make an omelet for breakfast, macaroni and cheese for lunch, or a homemade pizza for dinner.

Oven-Safe: Baking and roasting are some of the methods that any culinary novice can learn. Both dry-heat cooking methods utilize hot hair to conduct heat, typically at 300 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, but they also allow home cooks to increase flavor while simultaneously cutting calories. Roasting typically requires a higher temperature to create that flavorful crispy texture that you love and can't live without. Luckily, ceramic cookware can resist high temperatures up to 2,500 degrees. Ceramic cookware also has infrared heating properties that will make bad meals a thing of the past. Innovative cooking with Xtrema generated Far Infrared Energy, similar to the energy from the sun so infrared cooking utilizes FIR energy to heat foods from both the inside and outside simultaneously, so you gain an array of natural flavors while increasing the nutritional value of your meal.

Stovetop-Safe: As if you needed another reason to make the switch, ceramic cookware can also stand up to the demands of stovetop cooking. Whether you cook on a stovetop operated on gas or an eco-friendly electric cooktop, ceramic cookware will allow you to make mouthwatering meals by browning, caramelizing, sautéing, sweating, and searing, stir-frying, pan-frying, or pan roasting, to your heart's delight. What's more, you can take any leftovers from your saucepot or skillet straight to the refrigerator for safe storage.

Choosing a set of cookware to suit your needs is almost as important as choosing the best ingredients for your health. Ceramic cookware is quickly impressing consumers and home cooks everywhere with just how versatile it is, which can all be credited to an innovative use of materials and smart manufacturing methods.
