SKU: CA-RC17ABR Categories: ,


Called a hala in Arabic or cocotte in French, this pot is basically a covered casserole deep enough for braising or stewing. It’s perfect for soups and stews, or any slow-cooked dish that needs time to develop flavor and succulence. It’s also a really ideal pot for traditional American style Boston baked beans!

It’s fabulous for presenting dishes you’d like to reheat and serve from stovetop or oven to table. The terra cotta earthenware keeps foods warm for a long time so you don’t have to worry about cold seconds. This size serves 2 people.

Traditional assalie glaze inside and out (the word assalie is Arabic for “molasses” and perfectly describes the shade of brown achieved by the high firing).

This clay pot is sure to add a unique, handmade beauty to your kitchen or table.

Opening 7″ x 6″ H (17 cm x 15 cm). Because our pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Features & Benefits

  • Fitted lid keeps food warm at the table and pronounced handles provide ease of lifting.
  • 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.
