Slow cooking in MEC literally changes the way we have always looked at slow cookers. Interestingly, MEC makes slow cooking faster: for example, the recipes that take a whole day in a conventional crock pot, are done in a matter of hours with MEC. At this point, you may be wondering if faster cooking equals loss of nutrients but this is not the case, because MEC cooks with unique far infrared heat. To shed light on such exclusive features, here are 3 comparative points that show why MEC is better than its conventional counterparts:
1. It takes way less time.
You come back from work in the evening expecting your food to be ready to serve after you have left it slow cooking in your crock machine for a whole day. And sometimes, you find that the food is partly uncooked or is not well cooked, or worse, the machine is defunct! This is where MEC can save your day.
MEC cooks with unique far infrared heat that penetrates deep into food and cooks evenly and thoroughly at medium heat or less – and taking only a few hours. Unbelievable yet true: 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 takes 1.5 hours for meats, 45 minutes – 1 hour for vegetarian recipes, like beans or when cooking grains.
2. Far-infrared cooking cooks without destroying nutrients
Conventional crock pots are typically made from metals that radiate harsh near infrared heat. This heat is destructive to the delicate nutrients and leaves food lacking essential nutrients and losing natural flavors.
On the other hand, far infrared heat is food friendly. It keeps the nutritional value of food intact and yet cooks it thoroughly. Thanks to excellent steam management by MEC’s ergonomically designed pots, the water-soluble nutrients present as steam during cooking stay within the food instead of being lost like in metal pots. Thus, food cooked in MEC is rich in nutrients and taste better.
3. Food is non-toxic as nothing from pot can leach in – it is 100% inert
The insert that may be made from questionable materials (heavy metals, oxides, chemical glazes etc.) used in a conventional slow cooker leaches toxins and contaminate food while cooking. These contaminants are assimilated with food and accumulate in cells, tissues, blood, and organs causing detrimental changes. The immune system weakens over time and makes the body prone to illnesses.
MEC pots are made from 100% non-toxic pure clay so when this biochemical entity (food) is cooked in them, they do not leach like metals and the cooked food is completely free from toxins. Eating non-toxic and nutritious food regularly helps body cleanse out the already accumulated toxins and boost the immune system. As a result, the body fights infections effectively and also heals from the damage done to it by metals.
