Is Your Cookware Harming your Family's Health?

If your cookware is constructed of a lesser grade material than surgical stainless steel, there's an excellent chance that tiny, minuscule particles of the material that your cookware is constructed of could be breaking and peeling off right into the food that you're serving to your family.

Using Surgical Stainless Steel Cookware
By using surgical stainless steel cookware you wouldn't have to ever worry about what is going into the bodies of your family, and possibly harming their health.

Cooking with waterless cookware is done under pressure with economical low heat. Just as the insulation in your house does its job, this cookware saves a lot of money over the years on utility bills. The built-in steam control valve whistles like a tea kettle to let you know when to turn the heat down from medium to low or simmer.

There is Only a 2% Average Mineral Loss with the Steam Control Method
58% Mineral Retention when boiling in water. You lose 42% of the minerals.
98% Mineral Retention with the Steam Control method. You lose ONLY 2% of the minerals.

Research on the Aging
Research on the aging process, like that coming out the US Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts
University, suggests that maximizing the nutritional quality of your diet may slow down or prevent age-related problems that many people think of as inevitable. The studies recommend cooking foods for a short time and in as little water as possible. Cooking waterless in our 5-ply cookware retains 98% of the minerals. Boiling food the old fashioned way destroys an average of 42% of the minerals.

304 Surgical Stainless Steel
The 304 Surgical Stainless Steel contains about 18% chromium and 8% nickel in addition to the iron. The popularity of 304 surgical stainless steel is due to its gleaming appearance which lasts for the life of a product with just an occasional cleaning.
Its excellent corrosion resistance is due to an invisible, passive oxide film that forms on the metal's surface in air.
Hospitals use surgical stainless steel because it can be kept clean and sterile.

Advantages of 304 Surgical Stainless Steel
Corrosion Resistance
Temperature Resistance
Flavor Protection
Design Flexibility

Layering The layers allow even heat flow, and durability. The aluminum conducts heat well in the inner layers, but is not desirable on the outside because it corrodes and comes off in the food. Stainless steel protects the food and the cookware itself. Stainless steel also contains iron which makes it good for magnetic induction stoves.

Warp-Resistant Bottoms The special design of the bottom of each our pots provides extra strength and rigidity that will always prevent warping. The pans stay flat and hug the burner for maximum heating efficiency during the entire cooking process. All pans (not lids) are oven safe up to 350. There is no need to ever use under the broiler.

But First...
The first thing to do before using your new cookware is to wash each piece thoroughly in hot detergent suds, rinse with hot water and dry completely with a towel. This will remove manufacturing oils. After each use, good dishwashing rules are all that are necessary for every day care of your cookware. A blue or golden brown discoloration may appear if you should happen to overheat a unit. You can remove this by using any good stainless steel cleanser.

The construction of both the 9-ply and
7-ply sets allows you to stack cook.

NEVER put cold water into a hot utensil.
Heat utensils gradually, NEVER use high heat.
Should a lid lock, simply open a steam valve.

Always rinse your prepared foods in cold water and drain. Enough water clings to the food to combine with natural juices and cook the food in its own steam. This is waterless, nutritional cooking.
For safety, and until you get used to this new method, you should add 1/8" of water to the bottom of the pan.

Get a Vapor Seal
To use the steam control valve, start cooking on medium heat (never use high heat).
Then, when the valve begins to whistle, close the valve and turn the heat down to low and finish cooking. After you do this, the lid will form an airtight heat seal. Shake pan holding cover tight once during starting time, and once during second period. Continue cooking until done. Season your food only at end of the cooking process.

Don't Peek!
Resist the urge to peek. When the cover is removed during the cooking period, heat and steam are allowed to escape. This lengthens the cooking time and dries out the food.

Cooking Times
The time guide below is only a suggestion. Remember that the cooking time depends on the texture you prefer your vegetables to be at meal time. Actual cooking time will vary depending on this fact, as well as on the quantity and size being cooked. The shorter the cooking time, of course, the crisper the vegetable.
