The kitchen is the best part of any home at least that’s true for me. This is where all life begins in that without food man is dead in days.
Nevertheless, if you love cooking you will know that good food defines a great life.
While most people think that the right food is defined by the right ingredients, your cookware also matter. Buying the right cookware gives you the chance to enjoy cooking.
However, if you are anything like me, you are probably reluctant to invest in an expensive kind of cookware.
This is because they often break quickly specifically the non-stick types.
For those of you who haven’t heard the news, Berghoff cookware is in town. This is ideal for the few people who are concerned about their health and the environment.

This is the reason why most people shy away from using them today. However, eurocast cookware is here to save you from all the drama of chipping off. The cookware is made using toxin-free and non-stick cooking surface.
These non-stick surfaces are made using ceramic and titanium. The cookware will stand regular use without warping. Since it’s made with a blend of ceramic on the bottom surface, you can use it on any stovetop including the induction surfaces.
Is It Safe and Is It A Good Brand?
While most people might think that these companies are only offering lip service to another one of the many cookware brands in the market, the Berghoff cookware is the real deal.
Unlike other non-stick cookware that contains toxins like cadmium, PTFE/PFOA and lead, this one is tested and proven to be safe. There are no complaints of it warping or chipping neither does it contain toxins. Which makes it ideal for use.

The Outstanding Features of The Eurocast Cookware
With the rise of induction cooking surfaces, most people need a cookware set that they may easily use on any kind of cooking surface including the induction surface.
Eurocast cookware bottoms are made using the ferrous bottom plate which means you can use them on any stovetop.
With this plate, the heat is distributed evenly and quickly thus your food will cook easily and quickly. In addition, you could use these tools both at home and in professional hotels.
The Ferro ceramic non-stick surfaces
Most of the non-stick surfaces in the market are made using Teflon or ceramic both of which are said to contain toxins. Ceramic may contain lead and cadmium while Teflon has the toxic chemical compound called PFOA and PTFE.
However, the eurocast pans contain none of that. Their surfaces are made using the ferro ceramic which is basically the titanium infused ceramic.
It’s loved by many for being chip-resistant but the eurocast tells you in honesty that their cookware, if not taken care of, will scratch.
Furthermore, eurocast uses the thermolon and more modern ceramics in making it this means that the ceramic is free of lead and cadmium. For effectivity, don’t subject the cookware to high heat for long hours when your food has no moisture because then it will stick.
In the end, this item begins to be less non-stick and over time you will spoil them. Remember to take care of your cookware to increase its lifespan.
It has detachable handles
The eurocast cookware handle remains cool to touch even if you have used it for hours. The handles are made of rubber but they aren’t oven-safe above 300F but worry not because you can detach the handles. The best part is that fixing the handle once you are done is quite easy.
When using it you can easily fit it in place or detach it when you want to place it in the oven. The best part is that even if you notice your handle is loose, with a single twist you can have it back in place. This happens to be the outstanding feature that only the eurocast cookware has.
It’s light yet durable
Although the cookware is naturally light it’s also strong. Made of aluminum, ceramic and titanium the cookware the set will last for long while being corrosion resistant.
Of course, the light nature is questionable because it can only mean that the cookware contains more aluminum than the other safe materials.
Not many people are convinced that aluminum made cookware is durable to use and this works to the disadvantage of the company sometime.
Made using the non-stick and nontoxic material the EarthChef set is your best bet to safe and healthy cooking. Mind you, you can use these items in your oven or grill surfaces. Featuring the 10 pieces of cookware you have a set to cook almost every meal.

For the most part, people like this eurocast cookware because you can use it to cook anything you desire. True to their word, you don’t have to use oil when cooking with the pan as it won’t burn your food. This will help you regulate the calories you consume.
On the downside, some people complain that the handle is long and heavy for a smaller size of pan. They further lack the insulation between the handle and the pan thus it could easily burn you when you need to remove it after cooking with it.
On a general scale though, the pans are good.
Berghoff Pots and Pans Reviews
This pans and pots like the series above are loved by some and hated by others. For some, they work fine and they have the perfect body, handle and bottom. They further have effective heat transfer.
For other people, they are not that good as they will warp easily. A customer complained that the body is very light which makes it easy for your food to burn as you are cooking. This is especially so if you are using it on the induction cookware.
Some people highlight that the non-stick features aren’t as good as the Teflon choice you have at home. This is something that is subject to approval. Generally, these pans are great to use as mine just work fine on the non-stick feature.
Caring for Your Eurocast Cookware Set
To begin using your new set remember to wash it first. You only need the warm soapy water and clean water to rinse it. The aim of this is to remove the packaging remains.
Like cast iron cookware and most other cookware, you must season the cookware first before you begin using them. Lucky for you, your eurocast cookware doesn’t need much time to season.
You simply dip your kitchen towel in olive oil then lightly wipe all the parts of the cookware before placing them on low heat for a short while. Let the oil seal on the cookware set. Don’t wash it after the season until after the first use
The best way to go about this is to continue seasoning your cookware occasionally.
Is it true it gives you the fat-free cooking?
Yes, it does, however, you will have to cook under low heat than the regular one you use on a day to day basis. In addition, if you will use the lid whenever you are cooking, chances are that the food will remain moist.
Remember, don’t place your cookware over excessive heat and let it burn as this will make it reduce its lustre and effectivity within a short duration.
The utensils to use with your cookware
Avoid metallic utensils by all means as they may cause scratches. In addition, only use the wooden, nylon, plastic and silicone utensils on the cookware. Don’t even cut your food in the eurocast pots and pans.
For efficiency, you need to properly clean your eurocast cookware after use. If you don’t clean it properly, over time it will stop delivering the expected results. While you may be tempted to use the dishwasher, please do not.
The item is said to be dishwasher safe but cleaning it in a dishwasher may affect its durability. Furthermore, the chemicals in the dishwasher will damage the non-stick surface and handles of the cookware.
When you finish cooking and would want to clean, wait for the cookware to either cool down or reach the warm temperature before you can begin cleaning. Then use a sponge and warm or hot soapy water.
This makes it easy for the food residue to lift from the pan. Even the excess fat and oil quickly come out. Clean both sides of the pan to maintain its factory look. I like to use the dishwashing soap but you shouldn’t use a soap that has chlorine or citrus as part of the ingredients.
For the time when you have stuck food on your cookware surfaces, soak it in the hot soapy water and if it still won’t come out just use the soft sponge to remove it. Never use any hard scrubbers for scrubbing the surface as they will scratch them.
Rinse your cookware then use a kitchen cloth to dry it out before storing.
- So, how do you store your cookware?
After you have cleaned and dried your cookware and are looking to storing them, remember that the last thing you want is to form scratches from poor storage. If possible, when you want to store them on top of others, just place the dish towels in between the pans.
Cover all parts of the pan that will come to contact with other pans or utensils. Don’t leave your cooked food in the pans and pots.
Tips to follow when cooking with the cookware
- If you can use the medium heat at first to avoid the burning of the cooking oil that would otherwise damage your cookware.
- This the best choice for those concerned about their health. You don’t have to deep fry food anymore. With low heat, you can use the fat-free cooking method with these pans. Under high heat, use minimal oil thus making a thin layer at the bottom of your pan.
- Never add frozen food on your pan directly as its heating. This makes it easy to burn the pan. Instead, let it defrost and attain room temperature first.
- Remember to match your cooktop burner to the base of the cookware you are using.
- For the open flames like gas, ensure to adjust its flames so that it doesn’t burn your handles or the side walls.
Is It Worth the Cost?
This cookware like every other cookware has its pros and cons but the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion. Like many other non-stick cookware, the item is effective with more durability when taken care of.
You should buy it if you can afford it for a different experience. But don’t take my word for it just watch the video below to answer your questions.
