Are the red colours on clay pots natural?

The process of applying Red colour on Clay Pots. Credits –

First of all this question has made our DMs more than any other questions. Are the colours used in clay pots natural? Will it cause any harm? Is it wall paint which is used to give the clay pot red colours?  We would love to clarify all the doubts in and around this.

Yes it’s a complete natural process and the colour applied on is also extracted naturally and the colour too is a natural product. First I would like to explain how this colour is obtained and why it is stated to be natural.

Regarding the process of extracting colours. Freshly excavated mud is soaked in water for some time. This mixture is then rubbed vigorously to make it a dark red mixture of colour water on top and sediments on the bottom. This process is done until the colour extract comes out. During every step the volume of mixture decreases and it takes up to 24 to 30 hours to completely get a red colour mixture

This red colour is then applied on the freshly moulded and dried clay pots and kept to dry up. Once dried up the clay pot is burnt to very high temperatures(which makes it stronger and to make the colour stay). This makes the final process of making the red clay pots.

After all this process the clay pot with red colour is good to go. So it’s all a natural process to make it, extract it. No artificial ingredients are used at any point of time while making. 

Also there might be a doubt about the black colour clay pots? Well they too are obtained through a natural process. Instead of applying red extract on clay pots, freshly moulded and dried clay pots are burnt to extreme high temperatures. This burns the entire clay pots making it appear black in colour.

Can we use clay pots in a gas stove?

Clay pots on gas stove

This is one of the most asked questions amongst our customers and this question might arise while you try to purchase any clay pots. To understand this first we need to understand how the shape of the bottom of clay pots affect the cooking process. There are two types of clay pots, flat base clay pots and curve base clay pots. What does this mean? Its simple flat and curved base clay pots only differ in the shape of the base. Rest everything will be the same. Flat based clay pots have a flat and stable base while curved base clay pots have a curvature shape for the bottom.  

Coming back to the question on use in gas stove. Yes, We can use clay pots on a gas stove, be it flat based or curve based clay pots. Since clay pots were used from ancient times and the cooking methods were not on a gas stove this question might arise for everyone. Clay pots can be used on gas stoves and no damage or harm is caused by doing so. It is similar to using it on a traditional stove.

Also if you can use clay on a gas stove, obviously the next question would be can I use it on an induction stove? 

This is where the idea of shape of clay pots comes into use. In a gas stove we can use both flat based and curve based. While in Induction it would be more recommended to use flat based clay pots as it would be in complete contact with the burning surface which is not the case in curved based clay pots.
