Xtrema Cookware Review and 10" Open Skillet Giveaway (value $99)!

1 Winner, Ends 6/15 @10pm EST!



I will admit to you that I have always had a hard time spending a lot of money on pots and pans! I guess I have a hard time spending a lot of money on anything, that is the frugal side of me. The downside to this is that I feel like you sometimes have to buy a certain item more often because it wears out faster. I learned that lesson by buying cheap flat irons one after another! Never again!

I happen to love the pots and pans (they are my favorite color red) I currently have, but they are non-stick Teflon and you have to be so careful to not scratch them. I have always heard so much about the chemicals that can be released when cooking with non-stick Teflon pans as well. I have been trying to steer my household away from harsh chemicals this past year, but was not sure what to do about my pots and pans.

So, I was excited when I came across a company called Xtrema that sells Ceramic Cookware! You can go HERE to read more about how this company got it's start!

Here are the Features and Benefits I found on the companies website:

Xtreme High Temperature: Cookware can withstand 2,700 F, Steel can melt at 2,200 F

Xtremely Easy to Clean: Non-Scratch, Non-Toxic Ceramic Glaze Surface

Xtremely Attractive: High Gloss Black Finish Xtremely Versatile: Oven, Stovetop, Broiler, Freezer, Barbeque Grill, Microwave Oven, Dishwasher and Dining Room Table

Xtremely Healthy Cooking: No Trace Metals or Chemicals Leaching from the Cooking Surface

Xtremely Practical: Reduces Cooking Time and Uses Less Energy, Foods Stay Hotter Longer

Xtremely Tasty: Ceramic Far Infrared Cooking Enhances the Food Flavor and the Entire Cooking Experience

Xtremely Durable: Cooking Surface can not be Scratched, even by Metal Utensils and Industrial Steel Wool

I was recently sent their 10" Open Skillet! It retails for $99. I love, love, love it! It is sleek and very lightweight. The handle is very easy to hold on to while cooking and does not get hot. The pan itself cooks very evenly and is very deep. You can cook so many different meals in this 10" Open Skillet. I was not sure how it would clean up in the dishwasher after I made Spanish Rice in it the other night, but I stuck it in and it came out all shiny and clean! Bonus, I don't really like having to clean my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher! :)



I really love the fact that cooking in it is very healthy for my family! I mean why go green and start using chemical free cleaners in the kitchen and then cook with a pan that "might" be releasing nasty chemicals in our food?! I am not claiming that I know this for sure, but the reports now days are pointing in that direction

I can see myself buying some Xtrema Cookware in the future. I might not be able to buy it all at once, but can add in a piece here and there! I think that Pots and Pans are one of those places that you might not want to buy cheap.

Go HERE to view their Cookware. They not only have Cookware, but Teaware and Bakeware too!
