Giveaway & Review: Xtrema Cookware! {CLOSED}


When I got married, my husband and I picked out some nonstick cookware from a department store for our wedding registry. Almost three years later, that "nonstick" material has marks, requires a thick coating of cooking spray and you know what? I can't put them in the dishwasher! Needless to say I was skeptical of non stick cookware. That is, until I tried Xtrema Healthy Cookware!

I was recently sent Xtrema's 10 inch skillet braiser with cover to review and I love it! First of all, it's ceramic and beautiful. It has a gorgeous black glossy finish that looks great even just sitting out on my stove top! Secondly, because it's made of ceramic - food heats up evenly and stays warmer longer. Have you ever tried cooking something that requires stove top cooking, and then needs to be transferred to the oven - like quiche? With my old cookware, I had to partially cook the eggs and filling, and then try to shimmy all of it into an oven proof pan to finish cooking the dish. Not with the Xtrema! Because the Xtrema is made of non-toxic ceramic, it can withstand up to 2,700' F! So you can start cooking something on the stove, then toss it into the oven without worry (and without washing two pans!) Need to heat it up? You can also toss it in the microwave or put those leftovers in the freezer and heat them up later. And my favorite part? When you're done cooking, eating, and reheating - you can toss it in the dishwasher! :)

So far I've used this baby to cook breakfast twice (see bacon right!) The bacon came out perfectly crisp and didn't stick to the pan. All I did was heat the pan up a little on medium heat, spray the pan with a light coating of spray, and started cooking!

I have also made chicken tacos in the pan. I loved that I could cut the chicken in the pan without scratching the bottom of the pan! And cleanup? Easy! The first time I was a little nervous - the bacon I cooked looked as if it was stuck to the bottom of the pan. But surprise! The pan came clean with one quick swipe of the sponge - awesome! I can't wait to keep cooking in my new pan!

Some features of Xtrema Cookware:
  • Xtreme High Temperature: Cookware can withstand 2,700 F, Steel can melt at 2,200 F
  • Xtremely Easy to Clean: Non-Scratch, Non-Toxic Ceramic Glaze Surface
  • Xtremely Attractive: High Gloss Black Finish
  • Xtremely Versatile: Oven, Stovetop, Broiler, Freezer, Barbeque Grill, Microwave Oven, Dishwasher and Dining Room Table
  • Xtremely Healthy Cooking: No Trace Metals or Chemicals Leaching from the Cooking Surface
  • Xtremely Practical: Reduces Cooking Time and Uses Less Energy, Foods Stay Hotter Longer
  • Xtremely Tasty: Ceramic Far Infrared Cooking Enhances the Food Flavor and the Entire Cooking Experience
  • Xtremely Durable: Cooking Surface can not be Scratched, even by Metal Utensils and Industrial Steel Wool
  • Uniform heat distribution eliminates hot spots, which causes burned foods, and uniform heat distribution promotes consistent cooking performance.
Xtrema has a whole line of awesome nonstick cookware in different shapes and sizes. They also have a whole line of teaware which range from retro to elegant!

Frugal & Fabulous Verdict: I love Xtrema Cookware and wholly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase quality, nonstick cookware that really works! Whether you buy a piece or a whole set, these products are a great addition to any kitchen - and would make an awesome bridal or housewarming gift!

I would love the 10" Skillet! We use our cast iron skillet almost everyday...I try to avoid typical non-stick cookware for the leeching/chipping factor. However, cast iron requires a lot of maintenance...so I would love to receive Xtrema Cookware!
