Stocking Stuffers for the cooking enthusiast.
I'm pleased with this skillet. It's my first time cooking with pure ceramic cookware. I purchased it with a lid so I could keep food warm and I'm glad I did. I've slow cooked an egg, warmed and fried food with it, etc. And it's so easy to clean it. Food slides off while using a non abrasive sponge. Food seems to taste much better than cooking in stainless steal and non-stick.
I am getting used to it as I use it more frequently love the easy clean up and almost totally non stick.
Right size, even heating, cleans up easily!
love my new forever pans. no more spending money to replace worn out nonstick over and over. Healthy!
I was pretty unsure of my decision based on some reviews when I bought this set. However... I’m happy to say that following directions, I fixed eggs for breakfast and they didn’t not stick as bad as some reviews say. There was a little but no more than you would get from a stainless pan. It came off no problem. Only slight dislike I have is that it does take a lot longer to heat up and get going. For me, knowing there is no toxins is well worth the extra time. I am really enjoying this purchase and happy with my decision.
Love the size. Great for everyday cooking.
This was an awesome alternative to cast iron which rusts over time and is hard to clean. Xtrema has a knack for quality and design. I enjoy using my skillet for specifically meat. I’ve learned that with the right amount if oil in the pan nothing will stick. Cleaning is an ease as everything just wipes off. A gem
I use this pan for small portions of meat. Using a good amount of oil will sear your lamb/chicken perfectly without having it stick. Cleaning is a sinch. Simply wipes off. And i feel good when i use this because i believe it is great quality. I have a gas stove which means very low heat is a must for the oil will splatter. Beauitfully done
Definitely one of my favorites--I use one or more of them every day! Love the oval shape--great for baking elongated veggies, etc. Up to 4 will fit on my oven rack at the same time, so really handy for baking individual entrees, plus they keep food hot longer on the table, due to their thick high quality. I also pre-chill them in the refrig & use to serve green salads. I've collected a minimum of 2 of each color so I could mix-n-match to create various fun/festive table settings!! Great design--very versatile!
Wanted to try ceramic pots and happy with what I got. Very stylish as well.
4.5-Inch Traditions Skillet
4.5-Inch Traditions Skillet
Eggs are cooked to perfection!
The key is to warm up the little pan for 3 minutes in low heat, before oiling and cooking the egg.
I totally recommend these, I also would love for these to have a lid.
I love the even toxic free cooking of my 3 new cookware.
The customer service was beyond exceptional. Bob answered all of my questions, and went above and beyond to get me what I want. He even provided me with the discount I had forgotten to apply. Working well so far, just getting used to the specifics.
It's thick and perfect for cooking!
Have just begun to use the pans and it made perfect hard boiled eggs with no boil over, yes with the lower temp cooking does take longer and could be forgotten but if done while active in the kitchen one does adjust to this method
I've had this saucepan for 3 years now and love it! Planning to have it for as long as I can manage to not accidentally break it. I did put a tiny chip in the lip of it a couple years ago, but it hasn't gotten worse or affected my use at all. Besides that chip, it looks exactly as it did when I first bought it.
My husband and I use this daily, whether it's to heat up some bone broth or leftovers, or to make boiled eggs (6-8 fit well). We normally use it on very low heat, but of course use high heat to boil. It cleans very easily. Soaking it for an hour or two will help anything that gets stuck. I guess my only slight annoyance is that whenever you pour liquid out of it, there will be a drip to wipe up, but I'm so used to it now it doesn't phase me in the least. I only use wooden utensils with my Xtrema products, even though I know metal is okay too. Just feels weird!
I have only used it to bake poultry and it performed well if the pan is oiled. The only negative is that the inside is NOT scratch resistant as advertised. After washing it with as suggested with a scrubber there are scratches and on it.
3-Piece Bakeware Set
Very pleased with my purchase.
I love this Xtrema pot. It is easy to clean. I'm in love with Xtrema and keep ordering more. I use this for pasta sauce and soup. It's also great for heating up peas. I run the frozen peas in warm water through a strainer before putting them in the pot.
This is a great size. Use it almost daily and love the product.
Perfect size to reheat food for 1 or 2 people. Love it!
I bought these to replace my other cheaper stoneware mugs. I chose these Extrema mugs because they are chemical and lead free. I can taste the difference! My old mugs gave my coffee a bitter taste. These extrema mugs make my coffee taste amazing! I love these mugs soo much that I bought 8 mugs so I can use them as my everday cups to drink water or ice tea, lol. Thank you Extrema for making a quality product I can trust! My mother bought 2 sets as well and she loves them!
Excellent quality, appearance, and value! We wanted non toxic mugs. This was the only company we are aware of that offered these. We are so impressed. They feel perfect in your hand, not too small, not too large. We purchased white with black interior. They are truely excellent quality. After having them several months they are still beautiful. We use them daily for coffee in am and tea in afternoon. We put them in the dishwasher and there is no chipping. Three months ago we realized these were so good, we want to make sure we have extra just in case we drop one or something, so we ordered more. We highly recommend these mugs, we will be purchasing as Christmas gifts for others also because as for the price you pay and quality you get, value is excellent!!!
The mugs are beautiful, and the color red is the same as the photo on-line. I also like the weight of the mugs. I received them on time, and was given notification on my e-mail. I'm considering ordering other products from xtrema.
16-Ounce 4-Pack Mug Set
Love the fact they are TOXIN-FREE, over-sized & can even be heated in the oven, plus they are available in different colors. (Would make great Xmas or birthday gifts, given as a set, or individually with treats stuffed inside!) Don't know of anywhere else offering good quality, good-looking, guaranteed safe & toxin-free ceramic mugs to share with people whose health I care about who like hot tea or coffee.
I ordered this silcon potholder set along with my 11" Wok. Even though the wok came with a silicon holder on the long handle, I always like to have extras around. The smaller potholders fit the small handle grip on my wok just perfectly. These are very well made and durable products. These potholders really help protect my hands from the heat when I'm cooking with my new wok! I would expect them to last for a long, long time. Highly recommend this product!
Great steamer works well cleans up well and is better to use than a stainless steamer
I love all Xtrema cookware I have. It is safe and heakthy and cleans up easily
16-Ounce Traditions Saucepan
I use this sauce pan for reheating tea in small batches on med heat. It's a sauce pan to hold but pouring from it is challenging. You need to rush the liquid contents out quickly and precisely to avoid a major spill.
It seems to work fine, all I've done so far is heat water. I have to give in a few stars off however for poor design. The lip is so huge and thick that to slowly pour water out of it is a disaster. The water runs down the side of the pot. If you want to pour the water out without making a mess you have to basically dump the water out all at once, which still ends up splashing water everywhere.
XTREMA COOKWARES IS EXCEPTIONAL BECAUSE HAZARDOUS METALS AND MATERIALS DO NOT LEACH ON THE FOOD. EVEN GOOD STAINLESS STEEL COOKWARES CAN BE A RISK IN LEACHING HAZARDOUS METALS ON THE FOOD. THERE IS NO OTHER COOKWARE THAT I USE, JUST XTREMA COOKWARES!
My husband and I were looking for "safe" cookware to replace our stainless pots that may have contained nickel. We are very happy with our purchase - very easy clean up! Even when the oatmeal is overcooked!! We started with this less expensive pot and quickly returned for more cookware.
she loves the bowls
I have many pieces of the cookware, and now finally have matching balls. I love them. They're heavy strong, match perfectly. Very carefully and arrived all in one piece. I would love to get smaller bowls that match as well but on the website yet. Matching place would be great too.
The picture doesn't do these bowls justice! They're so beautiful! I love them! They look high-end.
Healthy, and safe food and cook
This is the perfect size pot when I want to reheat some soup or stew for my husband and myself. Food taste sooo much better in Xtrema pots. We can immediately taste the diffence when a meal is cooked in any Xtrema cookware vs stainless steel cookware.
Been using Xtrema for years. When it first came out. Clean healthy cooking. Takes a little getting used to but once you do you’ll never go back. We have complete set including kettles. Love it. When the pieces started getting chipped and cracked (they will!) we tried to go back to stainless steel copper designer cookware but it was heavier and didn’t cook as well. So we are just replacing as we need. And customer service is five stars. Love these guys and their products. Thanks Xtrema!
Once I used the short handle utensils, they became preferred over ones with long handles. Both my daughters love them too. Unless cooking in a deep pot, these are my go-to utensils.
The set arrived with one missing spoon. Xtrema provides excellent customer service and is making this right by sending out the missing item. I thought the quality of the plastic felt cheap and a little flimsy.
These containers are great for storing ice cream. I don't eat ice cream that often, so it sits in my freezer for months. I don't like when I open the container and there is a thick film across the top and it's covered in ice crystals. I end up scrapping an inch off the top. I decided to put it in one of these containers and two months later the ice cream looks just like the day I opened it. No gooey film, no ice crystals!
I was hoping to love these, since I've been looking for grippy oven mitts for some time now. The quality was good and I love how they look, but they are so big! They were very loose on both my husband and I. We have pretty skinny hands, but long fingers (we always get size L for kitchen gloves). The width of these is the problem though, not the length.
At the widest point from side of pinky to side of thumb, my hand measures 4" wide and my husband is 4.5". The mitt measures about 6.5" wide at that dimension, and the fabric material is pretty thin so there are 2" of room in the glove. The fit is so loose that I wouldn't be able to pick anything up safely. Sadly am returning!
Slips on the pots and pans very easily and don't slip off!
I use this product now whenever I cook with all my cookware and know that my hands are safe.
The Versa pot handles can get too hot for me to hold, and these silicone holders work very well to protect my fingers from the heat.
We use them to cook, store in the freezer of fridge, easy to clean! Takes up very little cupboard space. Very pleased with this product.
I finally find containers for food that I can easily carry for lunch or snack that are nontoxic and biodegradable. After you are done, it folds easily in the bags. It's also very versatile so I can use it in the fridge, oven and freezer. It's exactly what I was looking for. It's easy to use for children as well.
I do love this product which is why I purchased the 10qt Dutch Oven and 12" Open Skillet as a combo sale item as I was delighted with my previous purchase. Both items have defects which I understand happens but there are points on each where the black coating has not covered the underlying product. For the price…I would expect better. I am not so sure I would purchase this item again. I would recommend but with a caveat that for the price it isn't what one would expect.
The stew pot and large pan are terrific. Both retain heat for a long time with the lid on, so seconds stay warm. Hope to buy more pieces in the future!
The wok is very useful for stir-frys.
Cook for my picky 11month baby. It is just the right size. And food come out delicious .
this little cute pot, I use it for morning oakmeal cooking.
These crocks are perfect for reheating a meal. The lid and the ceramic retain heat so the meal stays warm. They go from the fridge to the low-heat oven to the table as bowl.
They are too cute! I love how practical the size is. Most of the time I'm warming up my own food which I don't need a large pot for and I don't need to pour anything out into a different bowl! Handwashing one thing instead of two, and something small instead of larger works great for me.
16 oz crock is great for cooking and storing. Cooking greens in this works well because of the high sides, which allow for lots of greens to be added and cooked down. Any leftovers can go into the refrigerator. 4 crocks make 1/2 gallon of yogurt in convenient-sized crocks. I also used the 4 qt matching crock to make 1 gal of yogurt and was very happy with the ease of making, then storing. But, with the small crocks, as I use the yogurt, i would free up space in the refrigerator. I also am a lover of hot chocolate and mocha latte. I melted dark chocolate easily in the crock, then mixed with some organic non-fat milk and some coffee, making a kind of thick liquid to spoon into hot milk, coffee, or yogurt, to really speed prep time, and did not have to lose precious ingredients or time transferring from the crock to a storage container.
Use this on the stovetop and in the oven all the time. Especially like it for cooking bacon and heating up tortillas. Makes great grilled sandwiches, too. Oh, and pizza.
steam fresh veggies. I do wish the handles were longer.
I use this pan for grilling meats, chicken and vegetables. I have only great things to say about this product. This grill pan helps me make nutrient dense and delicious meals quickly and easily. All it takes is a small bit of olive oil, spices, salt/pepper and perhaps a bit of lemon.
