Description

Mac and cheese anyone? You won’t find a better pot than this casserole large enough to accommodate 6 to 8 people generously. La Chamba pots are made in Colombia, South America in a region where its mica rich soil is used to produce clay. It’s the mica that makes these pots conduct heat exceptionally well. The caramelization makes this pot unrivaled as an open casserole for preparing layered meat and veggie, or pasta dishes with that perfect, golden crust. Or, try this pot the next time you want to make a risotto… it’s just right!

Burnished Black

Opening 9¾” x 9¾” x 3½” H (25 cm x 25 cm x 9cm). Because La Chamba pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Features & Benefits

  • Can be used on the stovetop as a sauté pan as well as in the oven as a casserole.
  • 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

  • Stovetop, oven and microwave safe. 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 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.
  • Periodically rub inside cooking surface with olive oil to help maintain smooth, unblemished surface.
