Description

This Italian round baker is a perfect gratin dish. A gratin is one of the most delicious ways to prepare vegetables. Add a thin topping of bread crumbs, olive oil or butter, and then bake until golden for an irresistible gratin – the natural terra cotta clay distributes even, gentle heat so foods brown beautifully.

This baker is also ideal for roasting. A whole chicken, pork tenderloin or seasonal vegetables can be roasted to perfection and served from oven to table for a stunning presentation. This one is sized for 6 to 8 servings.

Vulcania has been making beautiful earthenware in Italy since 1911. Because clay pots get better and stronger with use, they have been passed down for generations in Italy and become treasured family pieces.

The unglazed terra cotta finish on the outside will acquire a darkened patina with time and use giving a quintessential Italian touch to any table.

Opening 13¼” x 2½” H (34 cm x 6.75 cm)

Features & Benefits

  • Durable, high-fired terra cotta for use on the stovetop as well as in the oven.
  • Handmade natural earthenware from Siena, Italy since 1911.
  • Easy to clean, hand-applied glaze.
  • Lead and cadmium free.

Use & Care

  • Safe for oven, stovetop and microwave use. For gas cooktops, may use diffuser or lowest heat setting. For electric cooktops, please use only with a diffuser.
  • Clear ceramic glaze on the inside 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 baker from the refrigerator and place it directly 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.
