Cooking with Chemicals? It's Time to Draw the Line - How Ceramic Cookware Can Improve Your Health and the Planet.


Shopping for new cookware? You might have considered or even used a non-stick pot or pan, but you probably know by now that they're not really living up to their name.

We know the drill, the never-ending battle with scrubbing away stuck-on breakfast from a pan. But what you might not know is that while you're cleaning up the food, you're also scrubbing off chemicals from your pan. Yup, that's right, the chemicals from your pan just released into your home and the food you just consumed.

Did you know that over 95% of it is made with a chemical called Polytetrafluoroethylene, also known as Teflon®? According to, Teflon®'s main ingredient is a chemical called Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), or C8. This chemical is a "forever chemical," which means that once ingested, it stays in the body forever and never breaks down in the environment.

Choosing better-for-you, better-for-the-environment ceramic cookware can make a significant impact. It promotes a healthier lifestyle by avoiding chemical contamination and helps in reducing our environmental footprint. Here are why opting for ceramic cookware can make a difference:

  1. Safeguard Your Loved Ones From Nasty Chemicals

Traditional non-stick cookware ain't just made with Teflon®, it's got all sorts of harmful chemicals like lead and cadmium. A study from 2019 even found that traditional non-stick pans can reach temperatures of 500 degrees in just 2.5 minutes, at this point the chemicals in the coating begin to break down and release into your food and home.

Ritual Unions got something better for you - 100% non-toxic ceramic-coated cookware, free of all nasty chemicals such as PTFE, PFOA, PFAs, lead, cadmium, nickel, and other toxic metals. You can enjoy cooking more by knowing that you and your family are shielded from nasty chemicals.

  1. Secure Your Home and Planet
Think traditional non-stick cookware is only bad for our health? Think again! These "forever chemicals" like PFOA and PTFE ain't just bad for our health, they're also bad for the environment. Studies have shown that these chemicals do not break down easily and can have harmful effects on wildlife and ecosystems. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that PFOA persists in the environment and does not break down easily.
Not only that, but the manufacturing process of traditional non-stick cookware releases these harmful chemicals into the air and water, polluting our planet and harming local ecosystems and communities. And when these pots and pans finally reach the end of their lifespan, they often can't be recycled, ending up in landfills and contributing to waste and pollution. And if they ain't disposed of properly, they can cause even more damage.
The production of ceramic cookware is less energy intensive and generates fewer carbon emissions than traditional non-stick cookware. Mineral-based ceramic coating from Ritual Unions is non-toxic, durable, and recyclable.

Ritual Unions understands the harm that traditional non-stick cookware can cause to our health, homes, and the planet. That's why we created a safer and healthier solution - ceramic-coated cookware.
