This little La Chamba skillet can take the heat. Great for small sautés or even roasting a small game hen. When roasting in clay, you get superior browning from the constant even heat, while the gentle cooking helps preserve moisture and maintain tenderness. It’s also the perfect size to use as a serving bowl or plate, plus the natural La Chamba black finish gives a handmade feel that looks elegant on the table.

Burnished Black

Opening 10″ x 2¼” H (26 cm x 6 cm). Because La Chamba pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Features & Benefits

  • The combination of its size and shape makes this pot really versatile for the cooktop or the table.
  • 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.
