Neoflam Ceramic Stovetop Cookware Review

I’m pretty satisfied with the cookware I own, which is a combination of stainless steel, cast iron, enameled cast iron, stoneware  ceramic and ceramic non-stick, but I’m always open to checking out what’s new. Every once in a while there’s a line of cookware that offers something different from the rest. It’s either safer, more versatile, or just a more attractive design.

Neoflam ceramic, branded NatureCook seems to check all the boxes. It’s a Korean brand that recently launched in the US so you won’t find many reviews yet. It’s free of PTFE, PFOA, heavy metals, and other toxins. It’s very good looking and extremely versatile. It’s specifically designed to work on gas and electric ranges, oven and broiler, grill, microwave and freezer. Best of all you can actually take it from the freezer and put it into the oven because it’s engineered to “withstand dramatic and sudden temperature changes.” As you might imagine, it’s also dishwasher safe.

I didn’t have enough room in my freezer to store the 2 quart ceramic casserole I was given to review, but I did take cold food from the refrigerator and try cooking in the microwave, broiler and stove top. It performed very well. The exterior is matte, but the interior has a glossy slippery glaze that prevents food from sticking. Of course, the clean up will depend on what you’re cooking. But this is cookware that withstands metal tools and abrasive cleaners and it’s nicely priced as well. The  2 quart ceramic casserole s just under $55 on Amazon. It also comes in two smaller sizes, 1 and 1.5 quart. The only negatives about this piece of cookware is that the handles are a bit on the small side, and the knob on the lid does get hot, otherwise I’d absolutely recommend it.
