About Crystal & Crystal’s Cookware Hub

You will find reviews of ceramic cookware and kitchenware written by a mom (that’s me), who is focused on healthy cooking and eating.

After my dad suffered a heart attack, our family realized the need to reduce cholesterol and calorie-intake in our diets. This led to low-fat cooking with nonstick pans. Mind you, those were the early nonstick pans. Eeek!

Thank goodness the new generation of healthy cooking options no longer have PFOAs and we have nonstick ceramic, which is a healthier choice for the environment when it comes to the concerns about harmful chemicals, like PFTE (Teflon). I cringe at the thought of its potential effects on birdlife and the environment.  

With ceramic cookware, you have non stick cooking without the worry of those compounds.

Since researching and learning more about healthy eating ways, I have lots to share with the attitude that healthy eating starts with the cookware.

At the Crystal’s Cookware Hub, I research and compile info on some best cookware, including ceramics and cast iron, and some of the latest in kitchenware for you to consider.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
