Anyone using ceramic cookware?

 

We got rid of our Teflon stuff years ago and have been using stainless steel for quite a while. We still seem to have a hard time with certain things sticking in the SS if you are not super careful. My wife picked up the ceramic pan pictured below a couple months ago and we have been using it a lot. 

 

Anyone using ceramic? Anyone ever heard of this brand? It seams cheap to me, looks like I can buy an entire set of it for about $80.00. Any downfalls to ceramic cookware?

Like the old Teflon coated stuff chipping from years ago. It will be the next thing we're all going to die from in a few years! :D

At that price I would wonder about the quality of the metal construction and how evenly heat will be distributed.  

 

Not sure why you are avoiding "teflon" pans, but a well seasoned cast iron or carbon steel pan comes pretty close to being non-stick.   Gotta be careful with how you clean them and minimize cooking stuff like tomato sauce in them, but otherwise they work great.  

Getting the seasoning on them can be a little bit of a pain, but not that bad.

I thought that too but the one that we have had for a couple of months now seems to work just as good as our more expensive SS pans and so far is holding up great and looks as good as new despite daily use.

I'm sure you are attempting to bait me into a debate here but I'm dumb enough so I'll be your huckleberry.....

 

I understand that for the most part Teflon pans and the PFOA's they contain are generally safe to use but you need to take some precautions like not over heating the pan,  ventilating the cooking area well, taking care not to chip or scratch the coating so it doesn't end up in your food, etc.


The problem is, I want my family to be safe and I don't always do the cooking so I am not always in control of the above conditions. 

I worked in a place for a short period of time back in the early 90's that worked with Teflon coated plastics. We had to machine, heat, bend and work this plastic using all sorts of methods. Whenever we had to use any heating method on the plastic we wore masks that ventilated air in from the outside. Still, once or twice a year, most everyone in the plant would get something they called "The Teflon Flu" where you would be sick for a day or so. That didn't seem too healthy to me so I avoid Teflon.

Yep, I've been using them for years but I'd like to try something easier if it exists.

Keeping the seasoning on them is even harder sometimes.

Sounds like you have it under control.    I'm not convinced about the teflon thing, since it needs to be heated into the 600 degree range to be a problem.   Not trying to get into a debate here at all, I was just wondering, since I have not heard much recently about any issues.

Me neither.

That's why my post was just asking if anyone here had any experience with ceramic cookware.

We switched to the copper stuff and stainless steel. Looked at the ceramic and stonewear stuff but haven't been too successful at finding anything that works with induction and is in the right price point.

    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
