Why is it healthier to cook on Vulcano Gres casseroles and plates?
There is a direct relation between high-temperature cooking and the health hazards of certain substances that are introduced into food during the cooking process. These range from toxic chemicals in Teflon non-stick surface moulds to the precipitation of dangerous heavy metals in food through a variety of metal cookware.

The dangers of non-stick aluminium cookware are well known.
The higher is the temperature, the greater is the danger.
Aluminium is a "reactive" metal, which means that it reacts with salty or acidic foods to be released into the food. Aluminium exposure can occur in non-stick coated cookware when it is scratched or the teflon disappears.
Contain perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a synthetic chemical used in manufacturing that creates a soap-like slip with non-stick properties.
They heat up quickly and reach temperatures where they release toxic gases into the air-heat, not too high a temperature being necessary for this. The coating begins to break down and release toxins at a temperature of only 446°F.

Why is APFO so dangerous?
"Aluminium is a "reactive" metal, which means that it reacts with salty or acidic foods to be released into the food. Aluminium exposure can occur in non-stick coated pans when they are scratched or the teflon disappears.

In animal studies, APFO poses health risks such as:
Serious organ changes, showing toxicity in brain, prostate, liver, thymus and kidneys.
Changes have also been observed in the pituitary gland of female rats. In controls, pituitary enlargement affects reproduction and many metabolic functions.
APFO has been associated with tumours in at least four different organs in animal tests, and has been linked to an increase in prostate cancer in plant workers.
The various doses of APFO used in these animal experiments were not necessarily the same levels of exposure you might get from non-stick cookware. However, they clearly show the potential danger of APFO. A study published in 2007, and conducted by the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, showed alarming evidence of APFO exposure in newborns in utero.
While APFO can come from other sources, studies show the potential dangers of non-stick cookware.
Although not necessarily related to APFO from non-stick cookware, APFO has already been linked to cases of cancer in the pancreas, liver, testicles and mammary glands, as well as miscarriages, thyroid problems, weakened immune system.

Because of the extra weight, some people have found it difficult to handle, clean and store them.

Save time when preparing meals and reduce cleaning time.
Cook food safely and consistently from the inside and outside at the same time.
Help keep food warm for a longer period of time.
Use less energy for cooking.
In a study of heart patients receiving stainless steel stents, 50% of patients suffered restenosis. Allergies to nickel and molybdenum in stainless steel are suspected as causal factors.
While this study is not clearly related to cooking, it is quite possible that stainless steel cooking, coated or not, may increase the likelihood of metals leaching into food. This is especially true if cookware becomes scratched or worn due to prolonged use, storage or acidic foods. For people with nickel allergies this could be a particular concern.
Copper is an alternative that provides even heat distribution. However, we recommend that it never comes into direct contact with food.
When copper is used as a cooking surface it can leach out in excessive amounts. If sufficient leaching occurs, you may experience digestive discomfort.
Therefore, most copper cookware comes coated with other metals due to the prevention of the causes mentioned above. In addition, copper cookware is also usually very expensive.
Once we realise the potential risks of aluminium and stainless steel as reagents, and that copper can be risky, we should change for the better with non-toxic ceramic utensils.
We all want to do our best for the environment. And now you can go one step further by using and relying on environmentally friendly cookware.
You will achieve time-saving potential - because ceramic material is efficient in retaining heat, thus saving cooking time and energy.

And we are not done with all the benefits yet.

As a "Healthy Chef", beyond using safe and efficient cookware that you can rely on, you will also prefer something durable.

Why ceramic for healthy cooking is so durable.
You cannot scratch the cooking surface - even when cooking with metal utensils or scrubbing with industrial steel scouring pads.
You don't have to worry about damage due to the cookware.
These cookware can withstand very high temperatures (2700°F) - steel melts at 2200°F.
The surface of these cookware will never flake off on food.
Cleaning is easy - keeping your cookware in the best shape is a key factor in potentially having it last a lifetime.
It's not enough to eat healthy food if its preparation is potentially dangerous.
Remember, I applaud you for making a conscious effort to improve your health through a healthy diet of unprocessed foods.
If you really want to be a healthy chef, you should make every effort to prepare meals in a safe and low-risk way for you, your family and friends.
And that's why we recommend this type of refractory ceramic cookware.
I've been talking about non-stick cookware for some time. And by now, you should also understand the potential hazards associated with aluminium, stainless steel and copper cookware:
Potential material hazards:
-Non-Stick Surfaces: Health risks - from your immune system to the activities of giving birth.
It is a reactive metal and suspected causative factor in Alzheimer's disease.
-Stainless steel:
Potential for metal leaching into food and allergenic problems.
It is recommended that they never have direct contact with food.
