I did the Xtrema cookware review for you. If you are in the process of trying to find healthy cookware to eliminate the use of the toxic nonstick options, have a look at them.
You have found out how hard it is to find healthy ceramic cookware that is a good replacement for the pots and pans you have used.
Although we still use our well-seasoned cast iron skillets and will keep on doing this we tried to find a replacement for our stainless steel pot and pans that will stick when used for frying.
The brand we found is called Xtrema Ceramcor and we will start doing a lot of Xtrema cookware reviews here.
Most of them will be done on their own page but we will give a shorter review here to make it easier for you.
The first one I will do is the Xtrema Skillet. Just click on this link to read the total review.
What is the Xtrema Ceramic cookware?
Let me start by showing a video on how well the Ceramic can handle the heat and in this video is compared to an aluminum saucepan.
As you can see high temperatures are no problem for this Xtrema cookware.
Xtrema is 100% ceramic cookware and is made of natural materials that do not contain any metals, chemicals or coating that is loaded with synthetic chemicals to make it non-stick.
Later we will do a comparison to DR. Mercola cookware to find the differences.
For people who are worried about the materials in their cookware, I believe that the Xtrema Ceramic pots and pans are the best choice.
The reason is that it will not leach any metals or other unhealthy materials in the food you are cooking.
Here is a link to their website you can have a look at their products and find the prices. Xtrema Ceramic Cookware
FAQ About Xtrema Ceramic Cookware
Answers are from Xtrema company and some things we added after the Xtrema reviews we did.
Is Xtrema cookware safe?
None of the ceramic cookware and ceramic glaze contain toxic materials. All products are tested for lead and cadmium before shipping. Xtrema is FDA approved and also meets the standards of the California Prop 65 for this.

Is Xtrema easy to break?
They can break when dropped on a floor or banged against something hard. Just try to handle it the way you handle your dinnerware. Not many people mention that it breaks easily.
Is Xtrema made in the USA?
The question where is Xtrema cookware made we found several times and we understand the concern. Here is the answer from the Xtrema company
Since the United States does not have any high-temperature manufacturing facilities and China does because of their centuries-old tradition in ceramics the Xtrema cookware is made in China.
The Xtrema company has tried USA based factories but because of their high standards have not found one that meets their manufacturing standards.
It is hard to find ceramic cookware made in the USA or ceramic cookware not made in China but in another country. India has some production but I got no idea about their quality guidelines.
Is Xtrema cookware non stick?
yes, it is non-stick and also non-scratch but it is still advised to use some type of cooking spray.
Pros and Cons Of Xtrema Ceramic Cookware
Like any other product, the Xtrema cookware also has its pros and cons. The pros outweigh the cons very easy in my opinion.
- Non scratch
- Can cook on low heat
- No heavy metals
- No chemicals
- Dishwasher safe
- Can be used in the oven
- Can be used in freezer and fridge
- Very easy to clean
- Can break when dropped on a hard surface
- Need a little more time to heat up
Where Can You buy Xtrema Cookware?
Although you can buy Xtrema cookware on Amazon, I highly recommend buying in their own store. I have read reviews from other stores and sellers online that had a problem with customer service and contacting the reseller.
You can find their online store here: Xtrema Ceramic Cookware
You know that according to some sources the Mercola ceramic cookware is coming from the Xtrema Factory. I read a comparison between the two that stated that although Xtrema is a little higher priced than Mercola you also get more. Mercola is missing a large pan in the set.
Xtrema also provides more information and their discount prices and free shipping are easier to find on their website. Dr. Mercola is a little more hiding these options. His cookware set misses a large cooking pan for soups and stews. The Xtrema cookware set includes this pan in their set.
We will add more news on this Ceramcor Xtrema cookware review here on a regular basis to inform you about this brand.
