Is that even possible? In your kitchen is a slow cooker that takes almost a whole day to cook your favorite food. After waiting for hours, you sometimes find out that only half the pot of food is cooked… for some weird reason, the other half is not done properly. And what about the pot itself, who know what materials it’s made of and the glaze or enamel coating… what is that made of? As we know all of that is reactively leaching into your food also.
What if we tell you that this does not have to be the case, delicious, nutritious and uncontaminated-by-the pot-food can be achieved in less than ½ the time? Surprised? Keep reading to find out how?
Slow Cooking in Record Time: The Secret
The secret to slow cooking in such little amount of time lies in the material this cookware is made from – All-Natural unglazed primary clay or pure clay. Unlike conventional ceramic or metal pots, a pure clay pot cooks food with unique far infrared heat that penetrates deep into food and cooks it thoroughly and evenly in a lot less time on medium heat. This may sound like a ‘not so significant’ detail about pure clay cooking but it makes a huge difference to the cooking time, for example:
Cooking a bone broth with beef bones usually calls for 12-15 hours of cooking in a crock machine, this can be done in about 3 hours in a pure clay pot! And with chicken bones, it takes just 1.5 hours. It usually takes 1.5 hours for meats, 45 minutes – 1 hour for vegetarian recipes, beans or when cooking grains. Isn’t it great?
The Bonus Value?
Besides saving time, slow cooking in pure clay also preserves nutrients in food. While almost all the nutrients are lost while cooking food in a metal pot for long hours, the food-friendly far infrared heat from pure clay preserves nutrients. As a result, the delicate nutrients like complex carbs, flavonoids, phytonutrients stay intact, and the difference can be felt in the way your food keeps you full for longer and the natural taste and color of the ingredients is preserved as well.
An added benefit – the water-soluble nutrients present as steam during cooking are locked inside the pot: the lid being cooler than the pot lets steam condense on its inner surface and fall back into food. There is no other pot that can manage steam so well!
