You’ve probably heard why Teflon and PFOA-containing cookware, as well as cookware with a non-stick coating, are bad for you. The short explanation is that Teflon, like PFOAs, can cause cancer, low birth weight, early puberty, infertility and reproductive disorders, autoimmune disorders, liver and kidney disease, thyroid disease, high cholesterol, metal toxicity, and respiratory disease when heated at a high temperature, in addition to Teflon particles that get into your food when you continuously use the cookware.

However, are you aware of the reasons why surgical stainless steel is one of the greatest, if not the best, material to use for your cookware?


Stainless steel is quite strong; not only can it endure being dropped several times, but it can also withstand accidental metal fork and spoon scratches and last a lifetime. Take a peek at our happy clients whose cookware has lasted for anywhere between 20 and 100 years and is still in like-new condition!


Both gas and electric stovetops are compatible with stainless steel! Teflon and other PFOA-containing cookware is not suitable for use with gas stoves due to the high temperatures they produce, which can damage the cookware and allow PFOA particles to enter your food. Stainless steel cookware can survive such high temperatures and won’t hurt you, your family, or your pets when used on gas stoves.

Heat Distribution

Similar to how your oven distributes heat, Lustre Craft Cookware can do the same. Cookware that doubles as an oven not only provides consistent heat throughout the cooking process, but also drastically reduces cook time, saving you money on your energy/gas cost!

Vapor Seal

Our waterless cookware’s Vapor Seal Technology is one of its benefits. In comparison to traditional cookware, the food cooks more quickly and with a more equal distribution of heat thanks to the Vapor Seal. By harnessing the vapors produced by the moisture from your washed produce and meats, a Vapor Seal is formed between the cookware and its corresponding lid, establishing a tight seal. Because of this seal, your food is through a process similar to steaming, but with added advantages because when food is over-steamed in the conventional manner, many nutrients and flavors are still lost. With the vapor Seal created, you can even take your cookware off the stove and allow the heat sealed within to finish cooking off your food for you, preventing the likelihood of over cooking your food and still retaining the amazing vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and flavors of your ingredients.
