6 setting dinner set, Grasse
Nice fruit bowl Grasse
Chic fruit bowl
This real Vallauris pottery is available in two sizes depending on the use.
But the best thing is to take both because they will be very useful at the table for two people or for the whole family. They stack easily when you place them in your closet, and are microwave or conventional oven safe, and dishwasher safe.
With a country style decor, these unique salad bowls are so charming. Enjoy all these qualities that make life easier !
This salad bowl, like all the dishes displayed on our website, is handcrafted from shaping to decoration. This one is painted by hand or applied ‘a la poire’ to obtain an authenticity which makes the difference with industrial ceramics.
Each piece is therefore unique, with a signature on the back of the piece. It is also possible to add a name or a date to personalize your earthenware, for a wedding gift, for example.
By purchasing this fancy fruit bowl, you will help bring our French craftsmanship to life: this is the ancestral pottery of Vallauris.
The Grasse decor is quite atypical, and yet very Provencal.
It borrows from traditional decors the repetition of identical patterns, but with more spacing. The colors have a superb rendering, and the shine of the glaze gives even more luminosity. The red flowers are indefinable with their three petals like a headdress.
This country setting is very pleasant to watch. We never tire !

1 - Before first use (culinary terracotta only)
Before using your culinary pottery for the first time, we recommend to soak your pottery and its cover overnight in cold water and then to air dry thoroughly.
Then rub it with a clove of garlic and let stand for at least 5 hours.
Before use, clean it by hand, preferably with liquid Marseille soap or a diluted commercial detergent. Once dry, your terracotta pottery is ready to use.
2 - To avoid thermal shocks
Glazed terracotta and earthenware, like any ceramic, are materials sensitive to thermal shocks and can be damaged irreparably. Here are some tips to avoid breakage.
- 1st tip: Not empty!
Never heat or reheat a pottery utensil when it is empty. We recommend placing preparations or food inside, or at least a glass of water, before placing your dishes in the oven or on a cooking source.
- 2nd tip: Cold start
Whatever the heat source, you should always start your cooking in a cold oven, or on a small fire with a heat diffuser. Covered pottery retains heat and loses very little energy. You can heat up slowly. The earth gently cooks the stewed preparations, giving them back their water. These remain soft and tasty. There is no point in raising the temperature sharply. If you adhere to this principle, you can simmer unattended for a long time. Finally, do not use your pottery for quick cooking (roasting meat, for example). It is not appropriate. Prefer utensils made of iron, cast iron, etc, instead.
- 3rd tip: Do not put on a cold surface after cooking
Provide a tea towel, a cork or wooden trivet, and avoid placing it directly on a work surface. The temperature difference between very hot terracotta and a cold surface could create a shock causing cracking. Likewise, never pass from the oven to the refrigerator or vice versa. It would be fatal for your ceramic. Also, do not leave your terracotta or earthenware dish next to a cooking point. The proximity of a very hot temperature can crack the ceramic.
3 - How to clean your pottery
Even if you are using the dishwasher, you must handle your dishes avoiding any shocks. For hand cleaning, avoid metal pads and abrasive sponges. It is better to use natural detergents, such as Marseille soap products. Always rinse thoroughly, especially for utensils that have an unglazed part. You must allow your ceramic to dry completely before storing it. Place the lid separately, or staggered to prevent airtight closing while your dishes are resting. This will help prevent mold, as the terracotta retains moisture.
Thanks to these recommendations, you will rediscover the true flavor of your recipe in this natural earth, and the pleasure of sharing it at dinner.
