Tagines are tall, conical-shaped clay cooking bowls with lids. The tagine’s conical shape makes a unique moist, hot cooking environment for the dish being cooked. The base is wide and the tall lid fits snugly inside. As the food cooks, stem rises into the cone, condenses and then trickles down the sides back into the dish. The idea is similar to cooking in a dutch oven or slow-cooker. Diameter 9″.
Care: Before and after use, wash the Tagine in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly.
Use: Oven use only up to 350 degrees F.
Do not leave lid immersed in dishwater, as the unglazed rim is absorbent. Always use a cloth or oven gloves for lifting the hot Tagine. Always stand the Tagine on a trivet, towel or cloth. Care should be taken when removing the lid. Lift it slowly, at an angle away from you, to allow steam to escape. Let cool before submerging in water.
