When we cook our food, a lot of things go on behind the scenes that we are not aware of.
For instance, there are a lot of studies that show most of the pots we use are bad for our health. Even the very expensive titanium pots don’t break this rule. All metals, no matter how much they cost, can react with your food.
Food is a biological compound made up of many different things, like oxygen, hydrogen, halogens, and different acids and bases. The metals in food react with these nutrients in the presence of heat, and the metal ions go into our food.
The accumulation of heavy metals in your organs and tissues over time is the basis for many illnesses and the weakening of the immune system.
The infamous ceramics, glazes, and enamels, which are manufactured with a wide range of chemicals, ores, and oxides, are no exception. In order to avoid this, we only use non-reactive primary clay in the production of our cookware, and we never add any chemicals in the process.
A wide range of sensitive compounds (vitamins, minerals, protein molecules, carbohydrate molecules, lipids) undergo a remarkable transformation during cooking. The near-infrared heat from metallic and ceramic pots reduces the food nutrients which has a significant impact on the end product.
For example, if you touch a metallic or ceramic pot just 5-10 minutes into the cooking process, your fingertips may get burned. That kind of heat can also destroy nutrients in our food, which is made up of a lot of tissue!
Modern cookware like aluminium and copper pots emits near-infrared heat, which penetrates deep into the food particles, disrupting their nutritional connections.
Ekòkò, on the other hand, is built from 100% primary clay—just like our planet. As a result, food retains all of its nutrients while cooking at a lower temperature for about the same period of time.
The steam that rises from a pot has long been a mystery to many people. Food gives off a lot of steam, and most of it is made up of nutrients that are easy to dissolve in liquids.
Essential nutrients that are easily absorbed by the body almost immediately, and must be replaced daily—the body does not store these water-soluble nutrients.
So, what this means is that we may flush out 9 of the 13 vital vitamins and minerals in our bodies through our urine alone! Water-soluble nutrients that were supposed to replenish us are lost when cooking with modern-day pots because they let the steam escape from the pot.
Because of our extensive research, the potters employed at Ekòkò.ng have created steam-retaining pots and lids! Using concentric patterns of packing clay, the pot and lid have a comfortable, ergonomic shape. It features two steam condensing barriers and stays colder than the pot because of this. Rising steam can condense and fall back into the food this way.
Handcrafted from pure raw materials, these lids may not always have a machine-cut snug fit, but their fundamental design elements help regulate steam better than any other cookware, even if it was made by a machine. Our pot’s walls “breathe” when food cooks in the presence of oxygen.
Ekòkò is a one-of-a-kind pot that allows the pot’s walls to pull in fresh air. The pot’s semi-porous walls open up as the temperature rises, allowing the food to breathe and receive the oxygen it needs.
Because of this, the foods are able to retain their freshness, flavour, and nutritional value. A sharp contrast to food cooked in an airless/dead environment in modern cookware.
A minimum of eight distinct types of cookware can be ordered on Ekòkò.ng. All the pots and pans you’ll need for cooking, from a pressure cooker to a normal cooker.
Cookware on the market has now evolved to mimic the way food was cooked in clay pots in ancient times. With a clay pot, for example, food can be cooked for a lengthy period of time without the risk of food overcooking.
Re-inventing clay cookware at Ekòkò.ng allows you to get all the benefits of conventional cookware without clogging up your kitchen. Use them to make any meal, from Nkwobi to Iyan and Efo riro and everything in between, in the healthiest way possible!
You can grip and hold the pot from any angle thanks to the pot’s circumferential handle. A pot full of components doesn’t necessitate much consideration of the handle’s accessibility. Screws won’t come loose or a handle will not fall off. The handle has a smooth and non-protruding surface.
You don’t need any silicone cushioning or other materials to cool the clay, so it’s safe and non-toxic to use. Naturally, the handle is cooler than the pot.
Have you ever made something in a pot and then returned a few hours later to find that it had gone cold? Isn’t that disappointing? It’s not going to happen now! One hour or even four hours later, your food will be ready to eat thanks to Ekòkò.ng.
Ekòkò clay pots are specially crafted to work on both gas and electric stoves without cracking. Exceptional value, affordable price and a long-term warranty of more than 15 months!
Because our goal isn’t to make a fortune, but to help people and the world, we don’t charge a fortune for our 100% healthy pots. To us, that’s what true and lasting “profit” is all about.”
In terms of nutritional value, our cookware out-performs even the most expensive copper and titanium pots. All food cooks in 7.5 minutes less time on average than in modern day cookware. Slow-cooked party jollof rice that normally takes about 3 hours to prepare can now be completed in as little as 50 minutes without sacrificing any nutritional value.
A solid and dependable warranty protects your investment at Ekòkò.ng.
We are the result of one man’s personal quest for the healthiest and safest method to eat and drink.
Professional potters handcraft each item, making them one-of-a-kind. Abeokuta, Ogun State is where they’re created. You can’t go wrong with this useful piece of art in your kitchen!
