What materials do you use?
Ritual unions cookware is made from the safest materials available for everyday cooking. Our pots and pans have an aluminum core, which is a fantastic heat conductor. It allows for quick and even cooking and can heat up 16x faster than stainless steel! Coated with two layers of non-toxic, non-stick ceramic coating to make cleaning up a breeze.
Why non-stick ceramic coating is a safer option, not Teflon (PTFE)?
Ceramic is made from minerals like quartz and is fired at high temperatures to form a naturally slick finish. Cookware with ceramic coating provides incredible health benefits to you, your family, and the environment.
Teflon (PTFE) has multiples uses, like cable coating, fabric, and carpet protectors. In recent years, researcher have found that in high temperatures PTEF release toxic fumes that are bad for the environment (think burning plastic). PFOA (C8) a known environmental pollutant. It also can remain in the human body for long periods, presents a risk of tumor growth in the liver, pancreas, and other organs.
Ritual unions cookware is free of PTFE, PFOA, and any other nasty chemicals!
Is Ritual Unions cookware oven and induction safe?
Yes, our cookware is compatible with all stovetops, including induction, and can be cooked up to 200°C in the oven!
Is Ritual Unions cookware dishwasher safe?
The best way to clean cookware is to hand wash it with warm, soapy water and a soft sponge. If you decide to use the dishwasher, place your cookware on the top rack as this is often the most gentle and clean area. Continual use in the dishwasher can affect the longevity of the non-stick coating of your pans.
Do your handles and knobs get hot?
Our signature double-riveted silver arc handles are secure and reliable, which made of stainless steel, to dissipate heat. That said, the handles do get hot when you are putting Ritual Unions cookware in the oven or cooking with high heat. Burns aren’t cool. Always use oven mitts or potholders when handling your pans and lids. Grip the lid handles with your fingertips or palm down so your hand does not graze a hot lid — ouch!
