This cazuela is a 9.5-inch diameter dish which is two inches deep. It is a good size for cooking shrimp, fabada bean stew, fideua or other traditional dishes -- also good for a small paella, if you do not have a pan available. The glaze on the cazuelas is lead-free. We provide directions for a simple seasoning (essentially soaking in water for a few hours) which renders the cazuela good for all applications: stovetop, oven or microwave. When cooking with terra cotta, the key is to increase heat gradually.
Cazuelas, terra cotta dishes, have been used in Spain for literally thousands of years. The art of cuisine began in clay pots such as these, which can be brought to the table straight from the oven.
Our cazuelas are unique in that they are made by potters who have followed an ancient Roman formula for centuries. Although terra cotta is nothing more complicated than moistened clay, low fired with an interior glaze so it can hold liquids, this particular technique that they follow involves including small pebbles in the mix which strengthens the bowl and increases its heat retention. La Tienda is the only source for this high quality cazuela in America.

"Love this dish. Quality product!"

"Pleased with quality of purchases -- have not had time to season them before use. However, disappointed that finding them "in stock" is a problem. We wanted to order more -- found them "out of stock" again!"

"Have been using mine for three years and they are wonderful. Perfect for roasted veggies or potatoes and to roast chicken. They look pretty on the buffet table. These are staples in our home."

"I love the cazuela dish. I also have a 9 X 12. They are wonderful to bake things. Things don't seem to ever burn in these dishes. And cleanup is easy, even if something is baked on. I just pour some hot water and a little detergent in and let it soak a bit, everything wipes out easily. I couldn't recommend a casserole more. Thank you La Tienda."
