Production Description

The greatest fear most people (myself included) have with using ceramic cookware is with dealing with the possibility of toxins lurching in our cookware, from non-stick coatings to heavy metals and lots more.  But there seems to be an exemption with this cookware. The Xtrema 8” 100% Ceramic Short Handled Cookware is a 100% pure and natural ceramic metal-free cookware perfectly designed to replace your traditional cookware which tends to leach unwanted and harmful metals into your food. As a 3-in-1, the cookware fit into different uses such as for skillet, braising and frying.  It’s also a versatile product that can be used on a wide range of cooktops such as on the stove, in the oven, on the grill, and in the microwave.

Although Xtrema 8’ 100% comes with a scratch-resistant surface it’s advisable to use wooden and plastic cooking utensils to get most out of your cooking. Also, the cookware is sensitive to temperature surge and so to prevent sudden cracking you must always make sure you avoid adding cold water to a heated Xtrema pan and you must first thaw frozen foods before adding to hot cookware.

Another important thing to note again is the fact that the cookware has no synthetic non-stick coatings and it’s venerable to thermal cracks. Hence to prevent the cooking kit from breaking it’s recommended that you use slow and low-temperature cooking, and you must always oil the pan when cooking.

Why We Chose It

Safe and Non-Toxic

If you’re anything like me you’d know how important this aspect is: safe and non-toxic material. Of course, it’s a number thing I want to consider before going for a cooking kit and in that, I want to consider the material used for constructing it. Luckily, this pan is made of a safe and non-toxic material, which means it’s free of Lead, Cadmium, and heavy toxic metal such as PFOA and PTFE (with safe non-stick coatings).

Bottom-line is, this cookware has a 100% solid lead-free ceramic cooking surface with no trace of chemicals or metals leaching. And, with that, it simply offers you food safe for consumption. In fact, it’s tested and approved, plus it’s California Prop 65 & Fda Certified.

Even Heat Distribution

This feature is also another key factor to look for in any cookware because it’s one of the factors that can influence the kind of cooking results you’ll have. Most certainly like me, you wouldn’t want to have cookware that you can hardly trust for offering you even heat distribution throughout your food. Cookware with an even distribution of heat means that your food will heat evenly with no part left either too cold or too hot.  Or how will you feel having your food remaining cold on the sides and too hot on the bottom? I guess you said horrible, right? The good thing is the Xtrema 100% Ceramic Pan is made of natural ceramic and ceramic is a natural distributor of heat.

Durable and Long Lasting

If durability and lasting cookware is what you need then you can find that with this product. In that, the Xtrema 100% Ceramic is guaranteed for being scratch-resistant it’s made of non-toxic solid ceramic both inside and out (with no metal used at all). Unlike ceramic-coated metal cookware that is vulnerable to scratch, the ceramic cooking surface can withstand any scratch without getting damaged regardless of overheating.


The fact that this pan can be put to many uses is another great plus. It’s not only fit for use as a skillet and braising it can also be used as a frying pan. It’s also oven, broiler, stovetop, steamer oven, toaster oven, microwave oven, barbecue grill and dishwasher safe. This means a great save for you.
