For the everyday cook, a cookware that offers efficient and healthy cooking is a cookware of true value. If you are a health-conscious chef, or home cook, you may want to learn creating the most appetizing food while preserving its nutritional value.

Professionals agree that clay cooking pots are known exceptional for their efficient performance. Cooking meats and fish, making soups, steaming beans and vegetables, baking breads and goodies, and cooking a complete meal in one pot, are among the things you can do in a clay pot. In addition, clay is an absorbent material which when soaked with water and heated in the oven, allows steam to evaporate from the pores. While the course preserves nutrients intact, it brings out the most native taste in all ingredients.

Since food is cooked in porous clay with minimum liquid and no added fat, master cooks to home cooks consider this ancient cooking method as an alternative way of cooking healthy. In clay pot cooking, most of the essential nutrients and vitamins are retained in foods because food cooks in a closed environment with limited liquid. When cooking meat for instance, the natural ridges at the bottom of clay cooker elevate the contents giving way for steam to encircle the food completely, resulting to the total browning of the meat.

The clay pot, or clay baker, is a very classy cookware that can be an impressive addition to your kitchen pieces. Since I became a clay pot aficionado, cooking had become more pleasant. Aside from the attractive variations on primal shapes, earthenware just delivers such great-tasting food. My Romertopf terra-cotta roaster is a fun miniature oven perfect to make fantastic clay-baked chicken breast stuffed with olives! This is the cooking style that allows for cooking just about anything you like slowly and gently done. You can use garden-grown herbs as freshest ingredients and allow your baker to bring it to perfection.

If you’ve just purchased or received a new clay pot, here are few advices on how to use and care for your first clay baker:

• Wash pot thoroughly in warm water. Do not use detergent or soap as this will possibly block the delicate pores.

• Immerse pot and lid in lukewarm water for about half an hour.

• Arrange food in baker. You can put all the ingredients for a complete meal altogether.

• Position your baker in a cold oven. Set the correct temperature and allow the oven and baker to heat up gradually.

• When food is done, you can serve your meal in the attractively- embossed terra-cotta baker. Be creative in your garnishing.

• One important thing to remember is to avoid sudden temperature changes. After baking, remove your baker from the oven and keep it off of cold surfaces.

If you want both cooking and fun pulled together, a clay baker is a fun way to make dishes. Even the simplest fish baked in mixed veggies will turn out a very appetizing fish meal that can pair well with your sparkling Chardonnay.
