Used Throughout Spain for Centuries
This is a traditional bowl of unparalleled quality designed for cooking and serving. The terra cotta vessel is classically proportioned with handles applied by hand.
You will find this extraordinary cazuela to be your best friend when you are cooking in the kitchen, trying to serve things at their peak when they are hot.
These unique cazuelas are made following the classical tradition of “refractory” clay: the potters blend tiny heat retaining pebbles into the terra cotta clay. When you bring to the table your piping hot casserole, stew or cocido, it stays hot for an amazing period of time! And when you serve your ice cold gazpacho or fresh fruit compote, it will stay chilled too.
It is made from the same source of clay from the foothills of the Pyrenees as has been used since Roman times! Villages throughout Spain have used this kind of cazuela from time immemorial. But it is more than romance – this is a beautiful and functional work horse.
No need to worry about the glaze on the cazuelas; it contains no lead and is perfectly safe for all applications.
