WHAT IS A CLAY POT?

So, what's the hype about clay pots? Since metal cookware has dominated the kitchen scene, clay cookware was not needed. However, clay cookware is now emerging from history and with good reason too. 

Clay cookware is made from earthenware, which has many natural properties that make it unique from metal. First, clay is porous, so it captures moisture and allows it to circulate while cooking. Because of this, you can cook with less oils and fats.

Also, clay pots are slightly alkaline, which neutralizes acidic foods like lemon and tomato when cooking.
