Benefits of soapstone cookware:
Soapstone cookware heats food integrally, not just through the bottom of the pan, and keeps food hot for longer once heated, thus saving energy.
It is a natural material which means no harmful substances are released into the food
It is durable and retains its properties over time.
It is nonstick so less or no oil is needed, providing a healthy alternative to coated nonstick cookware.
Because soapstone naturally repels humidity, it is good for salt and spice storage.
