Xtrema Non-Toxic Cookware is Super Versatile

Super-Functional-Non-toxic-Cookware-by-XtremaI had the opportunity to try a new product from one of our favorite companies, Ceramcor. They’re the makers of the Xtrema line of cookware and bakeware. They also have an incredible line of non-toxic teaware, glassware and Fridgex food storage containers.

They generously sent the new 10″ open skillet for my review, and I was more than happy to try this bad boy out!

It’s a beautiful black glossy skillet, quite heavy, but clearly high quality. I gave this thing a run for it’s money, and it performed very, very well overall.

Pros and Cons of Using Non-Teflon Cookware

My first question was about its stick-to-itiveness. Would my eggs slide around like a teflon pan, or would they stick and hold on like rust to a nail? Well, it turned out to be something in the middle. I definitely needed a greaser-upper. You know, some kind of fat or butter. And honestly, there’s just nothing that compares to teflon and its ability to keep things from sticking, but this skillet FAR outperforms any other non-teflon pan out there. It required less fat than my other non-teflon pans, and once I added that step my foods cooked so nicely.

Pulled Pork Was NEVER So Easy

I’m also a huge fan of pans that go from the stovetop to the oven. It’s actually a necessity for me, and this skillet turned out to be my dream come true. And yes, I can do that with my cast iron skillet, but my food doesn’t always come out the way I want it to. With the Xtrema skillet, I made my all-time favorite frittatas over and over again because they cooked perfectly in this pan.

Once I got the hang of it, I ended up using this skillet at least once every day. It’s crazy versatile, and I’m finding it appropriate for almost everything, even pulled pork. Yummmm!

There are only a few drawbacks that I can see. It’s somewhat heavy, but I have a hard time hating that because it equals quality in this case. And secondly, I do wish it had a lid. I could’ve used it quite a bit, but that’s not the end of the world.

Lastly is the cost. This pan is $109.99 which is very pricey for my budget, BUT after having used it for about a month now and having also purchased many, many other non-toxic pans in the past, I truly believe the price is worth it. If I compared the cost of all the cheap, crappy pans I’ve bought over a few years to the price of this one multi-tasking pan that would last much longer, I’d actually be saving money in the long run. Now how can you beat that??

Overall, the non-toxic aspects of this pan outweigh my desire for a completely non-stick surface by leaps and bounds, and the drawbacks are also minute in the grand scheme of things. There’s no doubt that I’m Xtremely in love with this skillet 🙂

Xtrema's Non-toxic Versatility is Truly Unrivaled

Xtrema’s Incredible Non-toxic Features are Hard to Beat

I’d also like to highlight some of the incredible features of these unique products. Xtrema cookware is dishwasher safe and can be used on the stovetop and in the oven, it works under the broiler, in the toaster oven, steamer oven, convection oven, microwave, freezer, and can even be used on the grill. Wow!

All products are free of lead, cadmium and toxic heavy metals, PFOA and PTFE-free, non-scratch, non-toxic, non-metal 100% solid ceramic cookware inside and out.

The Xtrema cookware line can withstand temperatures up to an incredible 2,700° F. The ceramic cooking surface cannot scratch because of the highly specialized manufacturing process during which the cookware receives two coats of ceramic glaze and is triple-fired in the kiln resulting in an ultra hard, unscratchable surface and super durable finished product. Xtrema cookware is so solidly made, the company backs its products with a hefty 50 year warranty against scratching.

Xtrema ceramic products are 100% Green, 100% Non Toxic, 100% Safe, and 100% Healthy; they contain no PFOA coating, produce no PFOA gas or odors and contain no heavy metals, lead or cadmium. We have independent worldwide labs testing our products at all times and we guarantee our products’ health and safety. We have done extensive leaching tests on our cookware; we leach no lead and cadmium or any heavy metals of any kind and meet all California Prop 65 Testing Standards. We publish our test results on our website.

Now THAT’S the kind of company we love to support!

  • Leanne

    I use cast iron skillets currently & would love to compare the Xtrema to them ~ being non-toxic is awesome and dishwasher safe is music to my ears!

  • Debra

    Can anybody tell me how this compares to the older original Corningware?

  • Carla S

    I use toxic cookware rarely . I still use it because cookware is so expensive to replace, but I’m working on it.

  • Is this open to US residents only?

  • Larry

    I recently began researching the benefits of using cast iron or 100% ceramic cookware. My only concern about ceramic is it’s fragility. You could certainly drop a cast iron skillet on the floor and not harm it, but a 100% ceramic skillet would break on impact. My family is pretty rough on cookware etc, so that would be my only concern. I did get my wife the 100% ceramic wok though, because she uses woks quite frequently. We will see how it stacks up.

    • I always worried about durability with ceramic cookware too – that is until I tried Xtrema. Their pans are seriously unbreakable and seem to be every bit as durable as my cast iron pans. ~Alicia

      It may be too late, but in the first three weeks that we used ours, we had two chips. Now, a month later, the chips on the handle are getting worse (spreading). The first two chips were not from wild use – accidentally bumping a soup bowl into the handle as I ladled soup. The other one was when the post was sitting in the sinked and I tipped it to dump it out.

      • Did you have this trouble with an Xtrema pan? If so, I’ve never heard of that happening (and I couldn’t chip mine if I tried), so I’d recommend you contact the company about it. ~Alicia
