WHY IS CLAY BETTER?
The unique properties of clay make it ideal for flavor-enhanced cooking without added salt, sugar or oils.
Clay is porous. Heat and moisture circulate through the pot during cooking, unlike metal or enamel-lined pots; Clay acts as a natural insulator that holds and absorbs heat to cook foods slowly and evenly bringing out earthy flavors and textures. Naturally thermal, clay cooks 4 times faster and stays warm longer. Cut your energy usage in half.
Clay is alkaline. Clay interacts with acidity in the food, neutralizing the pH balance. Highly acidic foods like tomato sauce will become naturally sweet when cooked in clay. Foods cooked in clay taste more robust with authentic flavors and textures.
Small changes to your diet can make dramatic effects on your overall health. With VitaClay Technology, you can make a host of important changes—all in one– while saving yourself precious time and money.
Natural, unglazed, highly prized Zisha clay infuses flavors and the airtight dual lid seals in flavors and preserves important nutrients, enzymes, and vitamins.
With a Zisha clay pot, your food is always free from added non-stick chemical glazes, lead, and aluminum.
