Cazuelas, terra cotta dishes, have been used in Spain since antiquity. They are the oldest manifestations of domestic life -- and can be seen at every archeological dig dealing with Iberian housing. Cazuelas are one of the original vessels used for a developing cuisine.
Our cazuelas are clearly the best you can buy. They are made according to a Roman formula which has been employed for centuries in this area of Spain near the Pyrenees.
Although terra cotta is nothing more complicated than moistened clay, fired with an interior glaze so it can hold liquids, this particular cazuela is made of a special clay to which small pebbles have been added to strengthen the bowl and increase its heat retention. They are fired at a higher temperature for durability.
These handsome cazuelas may be brought to the table straight from the oven. An 8-inch diameter dish is a good size to roast almonds, serve fabada stew, calamares, or other traditional dishes.
The glaze on the cazuelas is lead-free: safe for the stovetop or oven. If you want to use them over stovetop burners, be sure they are pre-soaked in water before the first use. This cazuela is 8" in diameter and 2" deep -- a handy size to serve a casserole to three or four people.

"The possibilities are unlimited with these individually-sized but generously-sized cazuelas. They're handsome, versatile and gorgeously rustic. Ours are about to be christened with individual servings of cassoulet, but clearly they'll be used again and again for other dishes. "

"I have not used the Cazuelas as yet, but wanted a set of 8 for future use. The delivery was much faster than I expected, and am anxious to try a chicken and chorizo recipe I have using these dishes. I could not give a higher rating at time because I have not actually used them yet."

"these cazuelas are great, only complaint , they do not nest (slightly different configuration)with 2 that I purchased some time ago. At that time you could purchase a 2pk. but wanted at least 2more so went for the 4pk. Couldn't nest them together properly so, hence, they take more room in my tiny bureau & difficult to get at various cazuelas wanting to use for a particular meal. LaTienda, please package products in smaller quantities."
