Unveiling VitaClay: Your Ultimate Cooking Companion

Frozen Meats Tossing frozen meat into your old slow cooker? You might as well be serving a health hazard! Old crockpots, due to their low temperatures, risk undercooking meat and encourage harmful bacteria like Salmonella, E.Coli, Shigella, and Staphylococcus aureus to thrive. Yum!

Tomatoes If you've been whipping up tomato sauce in your old crockpot, no need to panic, but you might be unknowingly introducing lead into your favorite pasta dishes. Tomatoes are packed with acids that can leach this harmful substance from your slow cooker. Opting for VitaClay, a toxin-free and lead-free slow cooker, not only ensures a worry-free cooking experience but also enhances the authentic flavor and nutrients of your dishes.

Lemon old slow cookers may release lead when exposed to the acidic citrus of lemons. Lead poisoning can cause a range of discomforts, from stomach pains to constant trips to the bathroom. This risk is mitigated with VitaClay, a modern and safe cooking alternative.
