Why We're Made in Asia
We are an American company and unfortunately there are presently no ceramic’s factories in the United States that are able to make our very unique and versatile extreme high temperature Xtrema ceramic products. For that reason we believe that to provide you with the very best in product quality we decided to make our Xtrema products where the finest ceramics in the world are made: mainland China. Every individual piece of Xtrema cookware is handcrafted and it takes each and every individual piece 22 days to make and complete. It takes artisans years to develop the skill and technique required to make our very high quality Xtrema products.
- Chinese artisans have been manufacturing ceramics for over 5,000 years.
- China is the #1 ceramic manufacturing country in the entire world.
- China has an abundance of highly trained and skilled ceramic artisans.
- Ceramic companies in China have built new facilities and have installed state of the art machinery together with the latest environmental control equipment.
- The raw materials needed to make innovative ceramic products are all readily available in China.
Our cookware is the healthiest cookware on the planet. Our Xtrema ceramic products are 100% Green, 100% Non Toxic, 100% Safe, and 100% Healthy; they contain no PFOA coating, produce no PFOA gas or odors and contain no heavy metals, lead or cadmium. We have independent worldwide labs testing our products at all times and we guarantee our products' health and safety. We have done extensive leaching tests on our cookware; we leach no lead and cadmium or any heavy metals of any kind and meet all California Prop 65 Testing Standards. We publish our test results on our web site and we know of no other cookware company anywhere in the world that provides that level of accountability.
The Chinese ceramics industry has a long and proud history with over 5,000 years in producing ceramics. As a result, China is the # 1 ceramics-making country in the world.
In recent years, China’s ceramics industry has developed rapidly and now produces 70% of the world’s total output of ceramic products. The output of daily ceramics, building ceramics and sanitary ceramics in China is ranked number one in the world, and the export of ceramic products continues to increase each year.
As the research and application for hi-tech ceramics in China are still in the beginning stages, the related market prospect is very promising. In the coming years, the daily sales of ceramics from China are projected to maintain a steady growth while building ceramic and sanitary ceramic should see a considerable market as well.
