There are Slow Cookers and Then There Is the Vita Clay Slow Cooker
The Slow Cooker that Allows You to Slow Cook with All Natural Clay, an Eco Friendly, Breakthrough Innovation
A Successful Blending of the New with the Old
Combining modern technology with proven, ancient traditions, the Essenergy Vita Clay 8 Cup Rice and Slow Cooker Pro is becoming one of the most-used small appliances in many a kitchen. Integral to this slow cooker is its clay pot, which forms an all natural liner into which the food is placed.
Clay cooking containers have been around for millenia, and the VitaClay Rice and Slow Cooker makes use of the famous Zisha Clay which is found only near the small Chinese city of Yixing. Used in China to create tea pots and other cooking vessels for over 3000 years, its reputation has only been enhanced with the passage of time. It is with good reason that Essenergy, the manufacturer of the VitaClay Rice and Slow Cooker Pro, has chosen unglazed Zisha Clay to be a part of their product.
Natural Flavors Enhanced
The use of Zisha clay enhances the flavor and texture of foods. It helps retain juices and nutrients and has the added bonus of being free of both heavy metals and the chemicals used to produce glazes and non-stick coatings typically used in other cookware, for Zisha clay provides a cooking pot with a naturally nonstick, unglazed surface.
A great deal of research has gone into the development of the VitaClay Chef Gourmet Rice and Slow Cooker Pro, and Essenergy is able to point out that their use of Zisha clay has resulted in a product that promotes healthful, eco friendly cooking. Users of the product, they explain, will quickly learn that "cooking foods in their own juices enhances flavor, you don't have to add oils and fats for taste. This means you can cook delcious dishes that are healthy and natural. The slow, steady evaporation of steam from within the unglazed pores and the closed chamber of the clay pot make the foods you cook, healthy, tender, and flavorful. Vitamins, minerals and aromatic elements are completely retained; no nutrients are boiled away."
Modern Technology Helps Not Hinders
This does not mean, however, that Essenergy is turning its back on "modern" cooking methods. Quite the contrary. Technological advancements are used to augment the advantages of traditional slow cooking. Consider the smart multicooker features of the VitaClay Chef Gourmet Rice and Slow Cooker Pro:
- An energy saver, saving up to 50% energy in slow cooking.

This blend of old and new technologies truly does provide extensive food cooking versatility for the modern chef. You can even use the VitaClay Slow Cooker for large cuts of meat, better soups, and healthy steamed vegetables.
