Description

Fashioned from the volcanic soil of Tuscany it was named for, the Vulcania terra cotta pot conducts heat and cooks wonderfully. Because of its shape, this pot has been traditionally used for beans andrisotto. Also great for braised dishes – while its round belly makes it perfect for beans, its wider opening for braising helps evaporate liquid and form a sauce.

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.

Available in four colors. The perfect shade of Red adds a splash of bright color to your kitchen. The traditional Vulcania Terra Cotta finish, unglazed on the outside, will patina beautifully with use over time, the elegant Brown lends a classic italian feel to your table, and the warm shade of Cream blends in with any kitchen decor.

Opening 9½” x 5¼” H (24 cm x 13.5 cm)

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.
