Ceramic coated cookware’s benefits have been touted widely. It is among the safest type of cookware and is eco-friendly, as well.
WearEver Pure Living is Attractive
Contrast the eye-catching cherry red color against a pristine white interior. The crystal clear glass, vented lids have silver rims and a red silicone band on the handle. The pan handles are matching red silicone and have holes for hanging, as well. This is a beautiful addition to any kitchen decor. Many sets and pieces also come in a shimmering sand color, called Champagne.
WearEver Pure Living is Functional
WearEver Pure Living ceramic cookware has superior scratch resistance as well as stain resistance. It is constructed of heavy-gauge aluminum with an extremely hard ceramic coating. While all ceramic cookware requires careful handling, this line seems to be quite durable.
Food cooks evenly throughout the pan. The pans have a high-quality aluminum base that heats up evenly and is heavy enough not to warp, yet lightweight enough to be easy to work with. The handles are soft to touch and large enough to provide a comfortable grip.
The aluminum core is an excellent heat conductor and the pans will heat quite quickly at low to medium heat. High heat might warp the base or degrade the ceramic coating. In the oven, they will withstand heat up to 350 degrees F. So you can cook food on the stove top, then pop it into the oven to keep warm.
The pans are safe for gas. electric, ceramic and glass. However, the bottoms of the pans do have a W design embossed into them which increases the strength of the pan and facilitates heat distribution. But you want to be careful not to slide them across your glass top.
There are a lot of lids in the set and many are interchangeable. You will have the right size lid for every pot. The vented glass lids will allow you to see what is happening in the pan. So you won’t be boiling anything over.
The ceramic surface provides effortless food release, meaning food won’t stick. Initially, season your pans by hand washing them with warm water and dish soap. Then heat them on medium heat for a few minutes and wipe them with coconut or vegetable oil. Then wash them again and they are ready to use.
In addition, a small amount of oil or butter should be used in the cooking process. Even though you are using oil with the ceramic coating, you don’t need nearly as much as you would with a traditional piece of cookware.
The manufacturer says that WearEver Pure Living Ceramic pans can be put into the dishwasher. However, while some customers say they do so, I remain skeptical. Heat temperatures are not the problem, they don’t rise above 350 F. But dishwasher detergent is somewhat caustic and abrasive and does scratch many ceramic pans. In addition, water force causes dishes to move during cycles and they may bump and scrape against each other.
WearEver Pure Living Ceramic cookware is very easy to clean. If food sticks or gets caked on, it will wipe right off once the pan has cooled. Any dark stains can usually be cleaned with dish soap, warm water, and gentle pressure. If a little help is needed to remove them, a small amount of baking soda usually does the job.
Always let your ceramic pan cool completely before you attempt to wash it. Never submerge a hot pan in a sink full of water or stick it under the faucet.
The ergonomic soft-touch silicone handles are riveted to the pans. This provides strength and a secure, comfortable grip. They also have holes near the end for hanging.
You want to be careful that your pans don’t bang into each other in storage. Hanging is the best option but not always practical in every kitchen. Another option is to slide them into a pan rack. If you must stack them, put a cushy layer between the pans, such as felt, rubber, or foam sheets to protect the ceramic coating.
