Cons of the Ceramic Cookware Set

Thus, having understood the Pros of the Ceramic Cookware set, let’s now explore the negative side or the Cons of it.
So, the Following points states the negative side of using the Ceramic Cookware Set:
Not suitable to be used at High Temperatures
The limit of temperature which could be handled by a particular Ceramic Cookware should be taken into consideration before purchasing it.
There are different sets available with different temperature levels. However, Ceramic Cookware can surely withstand more temperature than that of a Teflon.
PTFE and PFOA not present
The major concern to be taken into consideration in the absence of PTFE and PFOA is the porcelain glaze. This is because it contains lead which might be a serious threat to the person’s health.
Thus, it should be ensured that a Ceramic Cookware set is lead tested before actually purchasing it.
The quality of the Ceramic Cookwares becomes questionable when it comes to the durability of the set. This is because the non-stick coating of these Cookware sets is likely to wear off as the time passes. This, however, Will completely depend upon how it is used, handled and cleaned.
Incompatible with the Metal Utensils
The Metal Utensils don’t go well with the cookware sets which have a non-stick coating.
This is because when these utensils will be used with the Ceramic Cookware, it will scratch the coating which will ultimately damage the Cookware.
Uneven Heat Distribution
The pieces in the Ceramic cookware sets have a nanoparticle sized coating on their surfaces.
This particle later is much likely to be irregular which further results in the Uneven heat distribution across the surface of the Ceramic Pots or Pans etc.

My point of view on the Ceramic Pots is that the Ceramic Cookware is definitely better than the other Cookware sets.
However, depending only on the use of Ceramic Cookware sets in the kitchen won’t be able to cater to all the needs of the consumer.
I hope that now you have a better understanding of the benefits and the disadvantages of using the Ceramic Cookware Set.
