SKU: LCPL2 Category: Tags: ,


The smallest size of our three La Chamba oval bakers, this one is perfect as a generously sized individual gratin or small serving dish for two. Roast chicken, fish, vegetables – they all brown beautifully in this natural black terra cotta. The clay holds the heat so foods stay hot out of the oven. As a serving piece, it looks incredibly striking on the table – imagine presenting a gorgeous pasta or beautiful salad in it.

Burnished Black

Opening 9″ x 7″ x 2″ H (22 cm x 18 cm x 5 cm). Because La Chamba pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Features & Benefits

  • Durable, high-fired black terra cotta for use on the stovetop as well as in the oven.
  • La Chamba pots are molded by hand, fired, then burnished with river rocks to obtain the smooth, black surface.
  • Easy to clean, unglazed, natural surface.
  • 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.
  • Smooth, hand burnished surface 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 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.
  • Periodically rub inside cooking surface with olive oil to help maintain smooth, unblemished surface.
