Preparing Food with Organic Clay Cookware - La tapa pots and pans



 A common myth associated with organic clay cookware is that you can’t use it for certain types of cooking. On the contrary, this beautiful, sustainable cookware is more versatile than virtually any other option. What other type of cookware can you use in the oven, on the stovetop, and in the microwave?
Oven Cooking with La Tapa Organic Clay Cookware
Most people are aware that you can use clay pots in the oven to make casseroles, meats, and vegetables.  But did you also know that you could use organic clay cookware to bake pies, loaves of bread, lasagna, and any other type of food you would normally bake in the oven?  Simply put the clay piece in at the same time you turn on the oven and your food will come out more moist and flavorful than it would in a glass, metal, or ceramic dish.

Stovetop Cooking with La Tapa Organic Clay Cookware
Using clay cookware on the stovetop allows you to use much less oil and heats food more evenly.  You can buy almost any shape or size to make soups, stir fry, or even hot beverages.  Organic clay cookware can be used directly on gas burners, and a heat diffuser can be added for use on an electric burner.

Microwave Cooking with La Tapa Organic Clay Cookware
You can’t save leftovers in a metal pot and put them in microwave to re-heat, but you can do this with organic clay cookware.  The unglazed pieces are completely free of heavy metals and other toxins, so they are perfectly safe for microwave use.

The ways you can use organic clay cookware are limited only to your imagination.  Even the smaller pieces can be baked or used on the stovetop, so you can make individual servings for all of your guests to enjoy both safely and beautifully.
