For ages non-stick cookware has been tented with doubts of safety issues. These doubts are triggered by the fact that some non-stick cookware is made using a carcinogenic chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which starts emitting toxic fumes that you inhale every time you cook with a non-stick pot or pan! The fume is toxic and has been a catalyst for many long-term complexities, flu-like symptoms and in some cases even cancer.
However, Meyer creates products that are 100% PFOA free. And this claim is strongly backed and proved by the oldest consumer protection regulatory agency US FDA as well as European Food Safety Standards. In addition, Meyer cookware is Lead Free (the consumption of which can cause long-term health issues in adults and hamper the development of brain and nervous system in kids) and Cadmium Free (exposure to cadmium can result in flu-like symptoms and can also damage the lunges).
Thus, the coatings in Meyer products are absolutely safe. Though formulated and quality tested to resist peeling or chipping, the non-stick coatings pose no danger whatsoever, even when consumed accidently. Thus, you can put your complete trust in it and cook food for everyone in your family.
Now, when you can safely keep the safety of your non-stick cookware aside, let’s plunge into the question of why non-stick cookware are the base and basic of your kitchen and cooking.
A study shows that heart ailments caused more than 2.1 million deaths in India in 2015 at all ages. A staggeringly sad number that cause extreme anguish. However, it is to be noted that most of the heart ailments are precipitated by obesity, high cholesterol and blood pressure. And one of the major reasons of these complexities is the high consumption or intake of oil. Oil is an integral part of Indian cooking; whether it is regular meals, festivals or special occasions, most of the food undergoes one or another process of frying and deep frying. Even the normal cooking requires a substantial usage of oil, if one wants to avoid the sticking of food on the bottom. However, there’s simple solution to this age-old and adversely faced hurdle. Replace your normal cookware with Meyer cookware that allows you to cook with minimum or even zero oil. The non-stick system guarantees that the food wont stick; it will rather glide smoothly from the pot to your plate, just like your oil-usage woe will glide and go away from the horizon!
This World Heart Day, opt for a simple switch that will bring the biggest change in the heart and life of your loved ones.
