Cookware with Water Vapor Seal

Does anyone remember cookware that required something like 1 tsp. water added to the rim of the lid after it has been set on the pot? This was to make a water vapor seal. I was thinking about it the other day and wondered what happened to this line and if it ever truly functioned. It was sold in the 1970's.

I bought a set of stainless steel water vapor seals in the 70s. I'm still using mine, and they're going to last me a lifetime.

I purchased some cookware in the early 70's called Miracle Maid and it only required 1tsp. of water for cooking. I used it for over 15 years and loved it but I am no longer able to find it. I had all the pots and pans plus a great electric skillet you could cook a whole meal in. I was introduced to it at a party like a Tupperware party only for pots and pans. The demonstration had the host cook an entire meal in the electric skillet that included meat loaf, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and corn. When all of that was done they emptied the liquid into a pot and baked a cake in the electric skillet and made an icing out of the liquid off the meal, it was absolutely great and the cookware was very easy to clean up.

I had all the cake pans, pie pans and cookie sheets. I would love to have another set of the pots and pans, I still have 3 pots, the cake pans and pie pans from the original set but some of the finish has worn off inside the pots and pans. I think it was made by West Bend but I have checked their web site and have not been able to find it. If anyone knows where to purchase it I would love to know. I have seen a few of the used pots and the pot handles for sale on e-bay but they look rather worn.

I remember that in the 70s, here in Australia, both my sister and I both bought a set of Renaware which I presume was from the United States. I know it cost the earth and I never did work out how to use it properly; either that or I was just too impatient to persist! So it finished up being used like a normal cookware set! I know the company is still going because they tried to sell me ANOTHER ONE not too long ago!

Hi just googled it and then to west bend they have 2 pots they are called liquid-core. go to www.westbend.com and then look under products. One is the skillet and it did mention the making a cake in the skillet. Now don't know how much but it does tell you where you can get the product hope this helps.

To Pattral: Miracle Maid has been discontinued, but you can get something even better that is made today. Next time you go to a State Fair, check out the demos for Kitchen Craft, Health Craft. These sets cost thousands new, but much less on ebay.

They are very nice but most people use to high of heat and they are made to be used with medium to low heat. I still have my small set from that time.

To Answer everyone's questions, I just purchased a product that does just what you are describing. There are many products out there, and some claim to do what you describe. Some are good and some are not so good. Either way, all of them are rather expensive. I just purchased a product made by West Bend. The product is Royal Queen. I have used the product and it is great.

The Skillet and Grill are the nicest of the products, and the product has the ability to be used in stacking cooking reducing the amount of burners running at one time. The product does cook product in about half the time of conventional pots and pans that you would cook in. If you have any questions send a reply. Thanks, Louis C.

Do you possibly mean a Dutch Oven pot?

I've been using some waterless cookware I got not too long ago. It's the best stuff I've ever used!
