We live in India and every new merchant tries to sell things to Indian consumer. In India women mostly choose to be a household manager and generally does the cooking for her family. The sole main source of entertainment for Indian housewives is the Cable TV, DTH or Satellite TV. My mother is no different. She likes to watch TV a lot. The home shopping channels are most favorite among women and it is a universal phenomena. Recently she saw a ceramic cookware being sold on one of the Tele Shopping Channel. I remember that last time I saw a ceramic cookware was one Military Jug from Russia. My mother told me to order one for her. Being an aware consumer, I prefer to search on net about the newly invented product and then decide whether to buy it or not. I did some research on safety of ceramic coated pans and cookware and found out that there is risk of Lead poisoning from such cookware and I have decided not to buy ceramic cookware.
