Description

Made in the Egyptian countryside, this open casserole is glazed in a unique style familiar to the region. Traditionally, this clay pot is commonly used to bake stews and rice dishes in a wood fired oven – lidless so that a perfect golden crust can be achieved. For an oven baked stew, simply cover the opening with aluminum foil first. Halfway through the cooking time, remove the foil to allow the stew to brown on top.

Each piece is different, has a beautifully rustic feel and also makes a great serving piece. This size serves 4 to 6 people.

Opening 9″ x 3½” H (23 cm x 8.5 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 traditional Egyptian ceramic 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.
