Description

Fashioned from the volcanic soil of Tuscany it was named for, the Vulcania terra cotta pot conducts heat and cooks wonderfully. The tegame is the traditional Italian saucepan or as the French would say rondeau. Because its sides are straight and a bit higher than the casseruola, the tegame is the ideal pot for sauces and braising. Think the classic Bolognese sauce, lamb shanks, short ribs and even soup.

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. A great pot for day in and day out.

The largest of 4 sizes, this tegame serves 8 to 10 and is available in three finishes. The traditional Terra Cotta is partially unglazed on the outside and glazed on the inside. The gorgeous, warm shade of Vulcania Brown blends with any table decor. The perfect shade of Vulcania Red adds a splash of bright color to your kitchen.

Opening 12½” x 4½” H (32 cm x 12 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.
