Ceramcor Xtrema Cookware Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

After only 3.5 years of marriage, my pots and pans are a disaster. I actually have pan flakes that end up in my food every single time I cook. Not only is this disgusting, I imagine it can't be very healthy. So, after some research, I discovered that ceramic pots and pans was a safe route to go to never have chipped pan remnants again.
Xtrema offers ceramic cookware, bakeware, and teaware that could potentially last a lifetime. Their products are non-toxic, ecological sound, environment-friendly, free of heavy metals, ozone-friendly, and pollution free. This means Xtrema's products are green and healthy!
I received the 3 piece Wok Set ($139.99) to try out, which includes a silicone pot holder and a nylon wok turner. This product is incredible! You can take it straight from the freezer to the oven, microwave, gas or electric stove top and then to the dishwasher or sink without worrying about how hot or cold your cookware is.
I decided to try out my wok by making chicken fajita quesadillas. One special feature I noticed about using ceramic cookware was how low of a cooking setting you need to use. I kept the setting at medium heat and my wok stayed hot and cooked my food quickly.
I also loved being able to cook my chicken, push it up to the side where it would stay warm, and then cook my onions and garlic. I actually noticed that my food tasted better than when I use my old pans because the Xtrema cookware does not retain odors and your food won't have that metallic taste from old pots and pans, like mine.
After I finished cooking our meal, I put the pan into our sink and filled it with soapy water. I came back to after we finished eating, poured out the water, wiped it with my sponge, and it was clean. While you can use Brillo pads on this product without scratching your pan or chipping away at the surface, I didn't find it necessary. It was extremely easy to clean!

WIN IT!
