This beautiful rustic cazuela dish is perfect for preparing classic Spanish dishes or your favorite casserole. Each solid terra cotta cazuela has a durable blue glaze, and will add a beautiful burst of color to your kitchen.
Artisans craft these rustic dishes at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains, as they have for centuries. The hefty terra cotta retains heat, allowing for even cooking and preserving warmth even as your dish is served.
We find that cazuelas are our all around favorite in the kitchen, perfect for preparing hot dishes or as a serving dish for any kind of tapa or snack.
The glaze on the cazuela is perfectly safe for all applications - it contains no lead. We provide directions for a simple seasoning (essentially soaking in water for a few hours) which renders the cazuela good for stovetop or oven use. When cooking with terra cotta, the key is to increase heat gradually. Wash by hand.
