Xtrema: Healthy cookware 3 piece starter set review and #giveaway {2011 Holiday Gift Guide}

Great quality cookware is a gift that is perfect for just about anyone!  Add a quality cookware that is healthier for the recipient and you really can’t go wrong!

Xtrema is a non-scratch, non-toxic ceramic cookware.  There are no trace metals or chemicals leaching from the cooking surface like most other cookware sold.
Xtrema cookware retains heat when cooking, allowing you to cook at lower temperatures, thus saving energy.
Xtrema cookware cannot be scratched, thus making cleaning it a breeze!
All of those features are awesome, but here is my favorite feature about Xtrema cookware; it is so versatile!  It can be used in the oven, stovetop, broiler, freezer, barbeque grill, microwave oven, dishwasher and dining room table! No other cookware I have can do that!

We were sent the 3 piece Starter Set to review.  This starter set comes with a 6.5 inch skillet and 1.25 quart saucepot with a cover that fits both.

Having never cooked with a ceramic cookware like this before, I was anxious to see how it would do!

First, I wanted to be sure to read the instructions on how to cook with my new Xtrema cookware.  I was glad I did!  We have a glass top stove; because these burners heat rapidly, placing the pan on top of the burner and then turning it on could cause a crack in the cookware.  So I followed the directions, turned the burner on low for 10 seconds and then placed the cookware on the burner.

We decided to see if the skillet could make a good omelet.  My husband has “perfected” his omelets on the current cookware we have now, so he was ready to see just how good this ceramic cookware would work.  We experienced firsthand how this cookware retains heat and cooks hotter- the first omelet he made became burned on the outside while the inside was almost undercooked.  We turned the burner down to medium-low for the next omelet, and wouldn’t-you-know, it came out perfectly!  I love that we can use such low heat and still cook our food just as quickly and efficiently!

We decided to let some of the egg cook really good on the skillet to see just how easy it was to clean.  I didn’t even have to soak the skillet; the gunk cleaned right off with just my regular old sponge.  It was also nice to know I could use the scrubber side on this cookware without worrying that it would scratch.

I later cooked rice in the saucepot, making sure to keep the heat on low the entire time.  Oftentimes when I cook rice, even on the lowest setting, it overcooks on the bottom and sticks to the bottom of the pot while the top cooks perfectly.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that the rice cooked evenly, and there was no sticking to the pot!  It also cleaned up easily!

Aside from the function on this cookware, it’s pretty to look at too!  I love my Xtrema cookware, and look forward to adding more pieces to my collection!
