Why is clay better?

The unique properties of clay make it ideal for flavor enhanced cooking without added salt, sugar or oils.

  • Clay is porous. Heat and moisture circulate through the pot during cooking, unlike metal or enamel-lined pots; Clay acts as a natural insulator that holds and absorbs heat to cook foods slowly and evenly bringing out earthy flavors and textures. Naturally thermal, clay cooks 4 times faster and stays warm longer. Cut your energy usage in half.
  • Clay is alkaline. Clay interacts with acidity in the food, neutralizing the pH balance. Highly acidic foods like tomato sauce will become naturally sweet when cooked in clay. Foods cooked in clay taste more robust with authentic flavors and textures.

Wow, I love this cooker.
M.young
I first thought the inside under the lid was plastic, which it is, but there is another clay lid that goes under it, but it has a few small holes for ventilation.
Jay
I called customer service right away and they said that it shouldn't have broken (obviously) - and that normally they would give me half off.

I could not be more pleased with the VitaClay rice cooker! It is everything I hoped it would be.

I probably invested about $1000 of my time researching rice cookers before making this purchase. I was very concerned about the VitaClay due to prior reviews I read here. I called VitaClay's manufacturer twice and I also did research at a lot of other sites. Ultimately, I decided to take a chance on the VitaClay, but I also planned to order a purely stainless steel model too.

However, now that I have used the VitaClay for a week (cooking with it every day), I know this is the rice cooker for me. I do not need to look any further.

It cooks perfect brown rice. I have also cooked rice + mung dal in it many times. The food doesn't stick to the clay pot. The flavors are great.

I am satisfied that the quality of the clay pot is good. It passes California's tough regulations. These days I hesitate to purchase anything from China, but I'm comfortable that this product is safe.

The rice cooker does not give off any unusual smells. My concerns about potential toxic materials in the cooker have disappeared after inspecting and using it. The construction quality is very high. It is super easy to clean. The controls are easy to use. The design looks nice. I feel I got a lot of value for my money.

UPDATE:
I have had my VitaClay rice cooker for almost two years now. i like it more than ever. It has held up well. It still looks like new even though I use it almost every day. I have had zero problems with it.

BTW, the heating element does not come into contact with the food. The heating element is outside of the clay pot. The food only touches the clay.

I was a little concerned because of some of the reviews on other VitaClay products, but decided to give it a try anyway. I really liked an idea of having a clay pot in the multi-cooker. Well, I have no regrets whatsoever that I gave it a chance. I love the delayed start option, with three toddlers it makes breakfasts much easier with hot cereal being ready by the time everybody gets out of their beds. Yesterday I've cooked enough cereal for two mornings and all I had to do today is to add milk ind put it for 30 sec in the micro, while last night I braised some fresh turkey, added diced veggies and whole grain pasta, and put the pot in the fridge. This afternoon I simply added some water and put it in the cooker for 30 minutes and the lunch was ready. It's great! The taste is great, I don't have to think about it wile it's cooking, I didn't notice any aluminum on the bottom of the pot, as one of the reviewers mentioned, and another one said that she was concerned about the steam condensing on the aluminum cover and then going back to the food through the wholes in the clay lid - I've found an easy solution, I simply put a terry washcloth on top of the clay pot lid and it absorbs all of the moisture from steam.
Some mentioned that it cooks too fast for the slow cooker. I think I will agree, but I never liked the food from the slow cooker anyway, so if you're looking for the slow cooker, just go for the traditional crock pot.
All in all I really recommend it so far to anybody, who wants to save time in the kitchen.
UPDATE 8/8/2009
You've got to be really careful with pouring cool water over the hot pot. Of course it's a common sense, but sometimes things happen. My pot had cracked and I needed to order a replacement pot and it turned out to be a not an easy task.

Size Name: 6 Cup
I purchased a VitaClay cooker to avoid the non-stick surfaces present in most other cookers. Non-stick surfaces emit fumes called PTFEs that are believed to be harmful to humans (and pets). When I lifted the clay pot out of the machine - guess what the heating element was made from - yes - a non-stick, Teflon-like surface - despite the product being marketed as `teflon free'.

Michelle Liu the owner of Essenergy (the California based company that invented the cookers - they are manufactured by third parties in China) confirmed it was indeed non-stick but told me that a new version was coming out in about a month that used a different coating.

Based on this, I sent the cooker back at my expense with a promise from Michelle that I would receive a new unit and a shipping credit. It's now going on over SEVEN MONTHS and I have no cooker and have not been able to get my money back. She has had one excuse after another from "it is undergoing testing" to "shipping from China is delayed due to a slowing economy". In my opinion, this is not a company or product that can be trusted.

Other questions that need to be addressed:

For the new heating element, what is the new coating composed of? Has it undergone safety testing? Could it be even worse than the prior coating from a safety perspective?

Clay is a very porous substance that will be in very intimate contact with your food. Is it really Zisha clay? According to whom? Why does some marketing state "no ADDED lead" - is there naturally occurring lead in the clay? Has it been tested for other substances such as cadmium, pesticide run-off, other heavy metals? Is it 100% Zisha clay or might there be other clays/adulterants added?
