How Do Ceramic and Metal Cookware Compare?

Comparing ceramic cookware and metal cookware is almost like comparing an apple to an orange. They are both used for cooking foods, but their similarities end there.

Not only are they made from drastically different materials, the way they are made also varies. Durable, long-lasting ceramic cookware like Mercola Healthy Chef Ceramic Cookware is kiln fired much like a brick, while metal cookware is typically formed with different layers, like copper and aluminum and other metals, to help conduct heat. However, these metals can potentially leach out into your food while cooking, which is a real disadvantage.

Ceramic cookware and metal cookware also cook your food differently. Ceramic cookware cooks your food from both the inside and outside at the same time – a real time and energy saver! Because a ceramic pan holds its temperature longer, you may need to use less energy to prepare your meal and the ceramic material will help your hot food retain its heat longer.
