Miracle Maid Cookware w/ Gemcoat finish

QUESTION:

I'm trying to move away from the Teflon pans I currently own.

I have a few pieces of Miracle Maid cookware with the Gemcoat finish bought in the early 70's. Well used and worn in some places. The color is charcoal inside and out.

I've searched but do not have a definitive answer about what this was made from. I 'think' it's aluminum, but don't know what the Gemcoat finish is. The books that came with it (yes, I still have them), don't specify what it's made from.

I still have the large pot with steam insert and pans, a griddle (Lektra Maid) and a large coffee pot. I don't know if it's safe to use any of this stuff.

Does anyone have information on this?

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

I don't know anything about this finish and it appears this company may no longer be in business. If you are unsure and the pots are well worn, it may be time for new cookware.

Debra :-)
