INFORMATION ON THE VACUMATIC COOKWARE
is the difference between Waterless cookware
and Vacumatic Waterless cookware?
Waterless cookware is a system of
slowly steaming your vegetables without boiling
out the flavor and color. (Steam
comes to 100oC)
Vacumatic cookware is a process of
cooking your vegetables in a vacuum vapor.
By doing so you are cooking below the boiling
point (74oCelsius / 165oFahrenheit)
thereby retaining all of the vitamins, nutrients,
minerals, natural color and taste.
Some of the features necessary to
cook Vacumatically are:
Vapor seal to create a partial
Vac-Controle valve to allow the
steam to escape and lock
Heat conducting inner core along
bottom and up the side to the rim
Without these features cooking
Vacumatically in a vacuum vapor would not be

Cookware is recommended by leading health
70% of all prosperity diseases;
such as high blood pressure and heart disease,
even dental problems can be attributed to an
improper and inadequate diet.
In recent years our awareness of
what constitutes good health has changed
significantly. We exercise more. We have changed
our diets, eating more chicken and fish than red
meat, yet with all our efforts to live healthier
lives we still cook like our grandparents. We use
too much fat to cook in and we destroy the very
vitamins, nutrients and proteins our bodies need
to live long productive lives.
We know the secrets of
maintaining a healthy diet and we invite you to
share our knowledge. We have in fact, made it our
mission to promote good health all across the
With the turn of the new
millennium, it is with a sense of pride that we
tell you that we have made a commitment to
continue to lead our country in advancing the
trend of good health.
In a society, which is
complicated and stressful, the culinary art
represents an important form of communication,
which helps to relax and bind us to our families.
The Vacumatic cooking system allows you to spend
less time preparing meals and in doing so enjoy
more time with your family. The cooking time is
drastically reduced and allows you to maintain
more of the basic nutritional resources produced
by nature. The Vacumatic cooking system makes all
of this possible.
Therefore with Vacumatic cooking
systems you will have a healthier and more
balanced diet, gain vitality and enjoy life
Vacumatic cooking systems make
cooking with virtually no water possible. The
natural flavour of each vegetable, its aroma,
colour and consistency remain optimally preserved
with our waterless method of cooking.
All foods naturally contain
water. A sufficient amount of water, in fact, is
already contained in most produce to cook
vegetables by using the Vacumatic cooking system.
Vacumatic cookware seals itself to maintain these
liquids during the vacuum heating process. The
vapour then cascades down from the center of the
pot lids over your foods bathing them in their own
juices. By cooking with Vacumatic the delicate
water-soluble vitamins are preserved, as are the
minerals, which help naturally flavour foods, as a
result you'll find there is little need to add
salt at the dinner table.
You can even cook a variety of
vegetables in the same container. Each will
maintain its own flavour, aroma and colour. How?
We have previously discussed that the Vacumatic
cooking system seals itself during cooking. Oxygen
is required for a transfer of odour. A Vacumatic
cooking utensil is a sealed unit so no transfer
If a potato is cooked in water,
the vitamin C content is reduced by 60 to 80%.
Cooking with Vacumatic proves it doesn't have to
be that way.
You can avoid fat!
Too much fat is bad for our
health. Research studies link its excess to the
acceleration of various types of cancer growth,
heart disease and most obviously obesity. Fat
affects the quality of our lives. The answer is to
use less fat, but simply taking the butter off of
our bread is not enough. With Vacumatic cooking
systems you can completely give up the use of fat
in broiling, without losing any of the flavour.
When broiling with Vacumatic the searing process
allows the pores in meat close immediately
allowing the meat to stew in its own juices. Your
meats will taste better, staying tender and juicy
inside yet gets deliciously crisp outside. You'll
also discover there is also less shrinkage: 8% by
broiling with Vacumatic, versus 30%.
The result? Less calories and
more flavour with Vacumatic. And thanks to
superior technology you can also save energy while
eating delicious, healthy food.
Quality lies in every
10 reasons why our cookware is

odours and flavours and prevents the transfer of
metal from the cookware to your food.
One of the 7 plies is magnetic in
preparation of the future Induction stoves.
4. Our 7-ply heavy gauge
The unique nature of our cookware
centers on the ability of the utensil to retain
The heat conducting inner core
allows heat to spread perfectly evenly along the
bottom and up the sides, eliminating 'hot spots'
which cause most sticking and burning.

Vacumatic makes a worthy
Every Vacumatic pot is made of
the precious metal CrNi 19/9 surgical stainless
steel. Since this material comes in direct contact
with food while it is cooking you are assured that
all the positive attributes of this alloy are
ultimately benefiting your health. The mirror
finish results in a hardwearing surface which is
easy to clean and hygienic.
The heat-conducting core picks up
the lowest setting of energy extremely quickly.
Heat conduction is uniform over the entire bottom
and sides of the pot and it also conserves that
In Vacumatic cookware the
internal temperatures never reach the boiling
point. During the cooking process the body of the
pot consisting of a special 7-ply heavy gauge
heat-conducting core, which is the same thickness
along the bottom and up the sides, allows for hot
humid air to rise and make contact with the upper
sides and lids of the pot where the temperature is
much cooler. A vacuum vapour occurs at this point,
bathing foods in their own nutrient laden
Whistle while you work
The whistle valve on the lids
will notify you when the correct temperatures have
been reached and to turn the heat off. The
Vacumatic cookware lid is designed and constructed
to fit perfectly. A special condensation groove
takes the hot humid air and forms a thin film of
water between the pot and lid to assure that the
container maintains an airtight seal during the
vacuum cooking process. Precious nutrients cannot
escape, no evaporation occurs and no unpleasant
Whistle valve control
The Vacumatic cooking system
includes details that other manufacturers never
consider. Take for example your ability to
regulate the cooking process without lifting the
lid with our whistle valve. Our new whistle valve
allows you to regulate the cooking process with an
acoustic signal allowing for the optimal
application of our unique cooking system.
The construction our handles
allows for a more solid hold. Since the handles do
not heat up, the units can be carried without
potholders. They are replaceable, interchangeable,
dishwasher safe and oven proof.
All Vacumatic cookware rims are
designed to prevent dripping when pouring liquids.
Exclusive, timeless beauty and
perfect function are the prime principles for the
development of all BelKraft products.
Vacumatic means cooking
with the system
The apex of the Vacumatic cooking
system: function. Similar to the principle of
construction parts, our pots and lids can be used
as you decide maximizing your use of the Vacumatic
system. As the heat transfers evenly up the sides,
the whole meal can be made on one burner resulting
in energy saved and more space on the stove.
With Vacumatic cooking
systems your savings really add up!
1. Energy and timesavings
Studies show that the average
four-member household spends $45.00 a month on
energy used for cooking. With Vacumatic you can
save 2/3's of that bill or $30.00!
2. Savings in cooking oil
With Vacumatic you won't need oil
for cooking or broiling anymore, savings up to
80%! Assuming your family uses one litre a month
that's a savings of $2.50.
3. Savings in food
A household of four spends
approximately $120.00 a month on meat, fish and
poultry. Gastronomes need 5 ounces of meat to be
able to provide 3.5 ounces serving due to
shrinkage. With the Vacumatic cooking system you
only need to buy 3.8 ounces to serve 3.5 ounces.
That's a 22% difference in shrinkage and a 25%
savings or another $30.00 a month for your family
4. Saving in utensils
Vacumatic cookware has a 50-year
warranty! You will never need to purchase new
cookware again, otherwise over ten years let's
assume you would spend $600.00 on cheaper
cookware. This works out to $5.00 a month.
5. Save time and save it in many
First, when you cook. With
Vacumatic your cooking time is cut by 50% over
conventional methods. Second, cleaning up. There
are now fewer dishes and you cook and serve in the
same utensil. And lastly, you will save on
dishwashing liquid, (we won't bother with
figures.) With an average of 20 days per month
that you cook, and a half hour of time saved on
each of those days even at an hourly wage of $9.00
that's another $90.00 a month you saved.
1. Electricity $ 30.00
2. Cooking oil $ 2.50
3. Food savings $ 30.00
4. Savings in utensils $ 5.00
5. Time savings $ 90.00
Monthly savings $ 157.00
Yearly savings $ 1,884.00
Savings through 10 years $

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can I use your cookware
on my induction-top stove?
Yes you can. Our 7-ply set of
cookware is not only constructed of 316 surgical
stainless steel with Titanium, but it also has a
layer of carbon steel. It has been tested for use
on induction-top stoves and works perfectly.
How are the handles
placed on your pots?
The pots have handle brackets
that are welded onto the pots so that no rivets or
screws are inside the pans. A stainless steel
flame guard is placed between the virtually
indestructible textured, non-slip handles and
knobs. Lock washers and stainless fittings keep
the handles tight.
How can I tell if a
stainless steel is a good grade, and what do the
If the stainless steel is called
'surgical stainless steel', you can be certain
that it is a good grade of stainless steel.
The numbers you spoke of represent the gauge of
the steel, and there are a lot of different
gauges. Our waterless cookware sets are
constructed of 304 Surgical Stainless Steel. This
is a high quality, high grade stainless steel, and
is used by many hospitals because it's easier to
keep clean and sterile. Some of the advantages of
this stainless steel that a lesser grade would not
have are corrosion resistance, temperature
resistance, flavor protection, economy,
durability, cleanability, and design flexibility.
Is surgical stainless
steel the best material to use in the
manufacturing of waterless cookware, or are
there other materials that are just as good for
Surgical stainless steel is
always the best and requires no special
instructions unless you're using the waterless
method, and even then it's just using your common
sense. Neither does it require special utensils,
such as wood or plastic. True, it's a bit more
expensive, but there are consumers who have had
their sets for over 40 years and are still using
the same set, and their children will probably
inherit the sets one day. No kidding. (See Testimonials
Why is your cookware
priced so much lower than other brands of high
The main reason for the price
difference is simple: We are a wholesale supplier
of cooking products and accessories, and not a
retail outlet. Plus, we market our products over
the Internet. We do not advertise, and we do not
do bulk advertisement mailings. Neither do we
conduct the very popular cooking demonstration
parties that many of the other cookware brands do.
We leave this form of marketing to our resellers.
Plus, since we sell so many sets, we are able to
purchase the sets directly from the manufacturer
themselves in large, bulk quantities, and are
therefore able to receive a large discount on each
set, which we pass on to our customers.
By following the marketing plan described above,
we save the expensive overhead, which most
companies incur, and we're glad to pass each
savings on to our customers.
More Q and A's
Q. How does the
vapor seal work?
A. The vapor seal is designed to
cook vegetables with little or no added water.
Rinse your vegetables, place in the pan, turn on
medium heat, wait for whistle /vent and reduce to
low. The vapor seal is formed when the heat is
reduced from medium to low. A ring of water will
form between the pan and cover. The reduction of
heat reduced the pressure inside the pan creating
the vapor seal. This process allows you to cook
foods quicker with less heat.
Q. How do I get
information on completing my set?
A. BelKraft may have a
distributor near you. Call our office toll free at
1-877-523-7800 and we will gladly answer any of
scratching the cookware affect it effectiveness?
A. No, you can use any type of
kitchen tool in the Vacumatic cookware. In
cleaning the cookware, we recommend not using
Q. What causes
food to stick to my cookware?
A. Overheating. If food sticks to
your pan, the heat was too high or you had no
moisture in the pan. Try adding two tablespoon of
water to fresh or frozen vegetables.
Q. What causes
my cookware to discolor?
A. Heat Tints. Blue heat tints
may result from persistent overheating.
Light Residue. Light colored residue may occur
from hard water spots or cooking starchy foods. In
either case, spread stainless steel cleaner on a
damp pan and rub with a paper towel or cloth in
circular motions until pan is clean. Rinse and dry
Q. What is the
best way to clean my cookware?
A. Rinse out any food particles
and wash with hot soapy water. Your cookware is
also dishwasher safe.
Q. What do I do
if I lift the cover before the food is done
A. Replace the cover, turn the
heat to medium, open the valve and wait for the
whistle/vent to sound and then close the valve and
turn the heat to low. If there is no moisture in
the pan, add two tablespoons of water before
turning heat back to medium.
Q. How can I
get more waterless/greaseless recipes?
A. As of March, 2000, our
manufacturer has put together a new waterless
cookbook called Healthy Gourmet. It includes
information on how to maximize the benefits of
your cookware, updated recipes and recipes from
the Pritikin Health Centers.
Veggies – Place
rinsed vegetables in saucepan, add two or three
tablespoons of water. Place on medium heat until
you hear a tone from the whistle vent. Close valve
