No, this pot was not discovered in an Egyptian tomb, but it sure looks like it could have been! With its very rustic handmade feel and traditional drip glaze, this bean pot is surely one of a kind. Made by artists on the outskirts of Cairo, this piece is reminiscent of the traditional vessels used to cook a bean dish called Ful Medames. Consisting of slow cooked, mashed beans mixed with garlic, lemon and olive oil, this dish is a staple of the Egyptian daily diet and has been around for thousands of years.

This little pot is ideal for about a pound of beans, depending on the variety. Just dump in some very good quality, freshly dried beans (We love Rancho Gordo’s!), maybe a clove or two of garlic, or some onion, cover with at least two inches of water and cook away. Then, use those cooked beans in any number of dishes from salads to soups, or even solo with a pinch of salt. Simple and delicious!

14½” H (38 cm). Opening 4½” (11 cm). Because our pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Features & Benefits

  • Terra cotta clay high fired at 2,000°F for strength, durability and chip resistance.
  • All our pieces are completely handmade, natural earthenware. Minor imperfections add authenticity and charm, and are part of the piece.
  • Easy to clean, hand-applied glaze.
  • Lead and cadmium free.

Use & Care

  • Stovetop, oven and microwave safe. For gas cooktops, may use diffuser or lowest heat setting. For electric cooktops, please use only with a diffuser.
  • Clear ceramic glaze provides ease of cleaning. For difficult areas to clean, first soak for a few minutes in water, then scrub with a soft abrasive pad. Do not use metallic scouring pads.
  • Dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing to give the best care to your earthenware. See our section Clay Cooking 101 for detailed explanations and effects of soaps and detergents on earthenware.
  • Earthenware does not like extreme temperature changes. For example, do not take a pot cold from the refrigerator and place it directly on a stovetop or in a hot oven; it may crack.
  • Before first use, please season. A complete explanation of this procedure is explained in detail in Clay Cooking 101.
