About Xtrema Cookware
In 2004, with their 40 year experience in the ceramics and glass industry as a guide, they embarked on a quest to make a line of safe, non-toxic, metal free cookware. Xtrema Cookware turned to a time-tested material that’s been valued for its versatility and superior heat conduction for more than 10,000 years—Ceramic. Then they perfected their construction and ceramic glazing methods to craft a line of revolutionary, versatile cooking vessels.
Xtrema Cookware provides a line of 100% natural, metal and chemical free ceramic cookware for the purest taste, easiest clean-up, and most versatile cooking experience around. Not only that – this ceramic cookware can withstand even the highest temperature without cracking or melting.

We’ve talked a lot this week about safe cookware, and what we seem to have discovered is that many surfaces leach chemicals or heavy metals into the food, and others form toxic gases at high heats. It’s tough to find the magic bullet that actually cooks well and doesn’t have any health risk question surrounding it!
To guarantee the safety and purity of their cookware, they test it inside and out. Month after month, they verify that Xtrema meets California Prop 65 standards and passes an FDA-regulated, 24-hour heavy metal extraction test.
