Originally from North Africa, a Tagine is the name of a dish as well as the conical pot in which it is cooked. Our version of the pot comes from La Chamba and it is a beautiful Black Clay Version. Black Clay Cookware is not only beautiful, but it is also quite sturdy and will last many years with proper use and care. The Tagine can be used on a stovetop, both gas or electric, an open fire as traditionally used, and it can be placed in the oven. The distinctive black color and elegant look, the Tagine can go directly to the table for a sophisticated and original presentation. Care and Use As with any clay or glass cookware, the pieces must not be submitted to drastic changes in temperature. The pieces should be allowed to adjust slowly to heat, letting the pieces slowly heat up until they are hot, either on the stove or in the oven. Likewise, you should also allow the pieces to adjust to room temperature before washing or storing them, and never sit a hot pot on a cold surface such as granite or tile. The Pieces should never be put in a dishwasher and be handed washed only. After each use, fill the pieces with warm soapy water, allowing them to soak briefly if heavily soiled, then scrubbing lightly with a sponge or soft cloth. Never use metal or abrasive cleaners, and always try to avoid strongly scented soaps which can flavor the clay. Never use metal utensils, as it can scratch and damage the inside of the pieces, using wooden utensils instead. APPEARANCE As with most products which are handmade by artisans around the world, the pieces may have slight imperfections in the form or finish of the materials. Sometimes sizes of same model pieces may also vary slightly. These imperfection do not compromise the aesthetics or functionality of the pieces and are considered normal and to be expected. Likewise, although lids are made individually to match each pot, they don't always fit perfectly as the two parts may shrink differently during the firing process.
