The one good thing that’s coming out of this pandemic is ya girl is definitely getting some solid cooking skills under her belt! I’ve always loved cooking but now that we’re at home so much more (and with 2 kids that are seemingly hungry all the time!), the cooking seems to be non-stop. 😆 I’ve been wanting to change out my old cookware for some time now, but it wasn’t until Adrian had a co-worker recently get hospitalized for the “Teflon flu”, that I knew I had to do it now.
And so, for the last 3 months, I’ve been testing out various Teflon-alternative pans — some performed great the first couple of uses and then started to stick like crazy while others were just difficult to use and didn’t fit my lifestyle. I’m super excited to finally come on here today and share with you the clear winner when it comes to non-toxic cookware: Caraway!!

Is Caraway cookware safe?
Let’s backtrack a little bit and explain the reason to avoid Teflon coatings when selecting cookware. At high temperatures, Teflon is actually proven to release toxic fumes into the air. Breathing in these chemicals then results in polymer fume fever (“Teflon flu) in humans while in birds, it actually will kill them. Similarly, when Teflon pans or utensils are scratched, the coating can lift from the pan and make its way into our food. This is such a scary thought, and after hearing our friend’s story who was hospitalized after coming down with intense body aches, fever, and chills, I knew that this was definitely not a risk I wanted in my home.
A couple of the popular alternatives to Teflon include cast-iron and ceramic. I didn’t own any ceramic pans and after doing research, I learned that there are several benefits to ceramic coated cookware:
- non-reactive – heating ceramic does not result in any sort of chemical response and thus will never leach into food
- more efficient heat transfer – ceramic coated pans heat up faster and efficient, so less power is needed to cook your food
- non-stick – ceramic has all the amazing non-stick properties that we all love, which means less oil is needed when cooking!
- lightweight – the ceramic coating makes for a super lightweight pan, which I love since it doesn’t make it a pain to handle the pans single-handedly

How Did Caraway Perform In The Kitchen?
The first test for e when it comes to seeing if the non-stick is truly non-stick, is cooking eggs. I loaded up the Caraway Saute Pan with a touch of olive oil (about 1/2 – 1 tsp) and 3 cracked eggs. Omg y’all, the eggs literally just glide around on the pan and took no effort when it came to flipping and removing from the pan to serve. My kids even called my eggs “cartoon eggs” since they looked so perfect that they resembled the ones they see on cartoons! Low-key a proud moment for me since I’m usually the worst at cooking eggs! 😁
I also tried boiling corn in the large dutch oven, and it took noticeably less time to get the water boiling — a true testament to the efficient heat transfer of the ceramic!
Another pleasant surprise is that there is literally no reside left on the Caraway pans after cooking, which never happens. I’ve seared pork tenderloins, made curries, and even a balsamic fig reduction sauce the other day in my Caraway pans and yet, no stains! Cleanup is about as easy as it gets since I barely even need to run a sponge over the pan in order for it to come out spotless! Please note, the pans do need time to fully cool down before running them under cool water — this is true for any cookware!

Why Caraway Cookware?
I first heard of Caraway cookware through a flyer insert in my Green Chef recipe kit delivery box, and honestly, the beautiful aesthetic of the cookware is what caught my attention. I went online to lookup the brand and found an overwhelming number of rave reviews on their cookware from many notable sources such as Food & Wine, Refinery 29, and Domino. Furthermore I was impressed by the decision Caraway made to ethically manufactured all their products. It’s evident that the brand put so much thoughtfulness into their products.
The Caraway cookware set is undeniably very beautiful with its sleek lines and array of different tonal colors. It really elevates the cooking experience and honestly has made me look forward every day to cooking!
Another perk of the beautiful Caraway cookware is that I’ve even been having them double up as serverware! Less dishes for me to wash is always a plus and the full Caraway set even comes with 2 cork trivets. I made a pot full of the kids’ favorite mac & cheese the other day and not only was it super fast and easy, but it was so convenient to take it directly to the table for serving!
4 magnetic pan racks included in Caraway full set

Caraway Is Designed With Storage In Mind
I love that the Caraway set even includes storage solutions for the pots, pans, and lids! Four magnetic pan racks are provided and it makes for keeping the pans organized super easy. I’ve used the racks as a drying station as well and the pans are so beautiful that I don’t even mind if they’re on the counter top for display!
For the lids, a canvas lid holder is included along with 2 clear adhesive hooks. I have ours attached to the side of our stovetop island to make for super easy access while cooking, but other great options include cabinet doors and/or under the sink!
