With the advancement in technology, there are so many different varieties of utensils that are now available. For many years, the regular iron cookware remained a hit. However, then came the trend of preparing food in non-stick utensils.
One of its types is ceramic coated pans that have a layer of ceramic coating on its interior. The process of applying the coat is rather simple. Using a sand-like substance they apply a layer on the inside and then it is placed in an oven to cure and harden. This is what makes the ceramic coated utensils non-stick.
However, when it comes to the health factor, a lot of people doubt that if it is better than other options that are available in the market. To find out, we did some digging and here’s what we got!
No Chemical Additives
One of the main concerns of people right now is the transfer of chemicals that happen while cooking the food. If the pan that you are preparing the food has a certain kind of plastic or chemical coating, it might get transferred to the food, due to the high heat. But this is not the case with ceramic coated pans and pots. Since there are no chemical additives, there are completely non-reactive, and hence, there is no leach into your food.
Needs Less Oil
Even if you are a fan of fried foods, you don’t want too much oil to enter your body. As we all know too oil can lead to different kinds of digestive and cardiovascular issues. With ceramic coated utensils, you already don’t need to use too much oil to cook the food. In fact, to sauté some of your foods, you might not even use additional oil. But can directly cook in the ceramic coated pan.
Assists In Even Heating
This is one of the least discussed topics when it comes to health and wellness. But this is vital to understand that uneven cooking may lead to the transfer of bacteria in your body. The heat kills bacteria and germs that were not removed while washing it. The ceramic coated pan allows the food to cook well in all the areas that too while using least oil.
They Are More Sanitary
Most the utensils end up scratched and that’s where you will find food particles. They get stuck to that particular area and over time becomes highly unhygienic. The scenario is not the same as the ceramic coated utensils that they don’t really get scratches. This makes them safe and more sanitary in nature.
Do Not Weaken Bone
With normal cookware, the biggest problem that the aluminium leaches into the food, and that weakens your bones (tips to improve bones). But this problem is not there with ceramic coated cookware. The coating in it doesn’t degrade with time and hence, there is no chance of aluminium mixing entering your body and leading to diseases associated with dementia.
