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.
A health note: No need to worry about the glaze on the cazuelas; it contains no lead and is perfectly safe for all applications. Ours is the only potter in Spain that uses photo-atomic analysis to assure that the products are cadmium-free and lead-free. The FDA requirement for a product being “lead-free” is one part per million (PPM). Our cazuelas have less than three hundredths (03) parts per million (PPM).

"I have this Cazuela myself and use it all the time. Chicken comes out so moist. I like mine so much I bought this as a gift for my son's girlfriend who had dinner at my house and was so impressed with the Cazuela and the chicken I roasted in it. "

"I love cooking with the Rustic Roman Terra Cotta Cazuela. I got it a few days ago and started cooking right away with it. It has been wonderful. The food has a better taste than other pots, cooks to perfection. The cazuela keeps the heat well distributed so the food cooks evenly. I cleaned with baking soda instead of soap and it worked perfect. I highly recommend it. "
