Extra large salad bowl!

It’s always useful to have a very large salad bowl on hand for entertaining family or friends, and for all those occasions when there are many guests.

This one has a diameter of 29 cm with a very flared round shape. It goes in the dishwasher, in the microwave, and in the traditional oven (avoiding thermal shocks, of course).

It could also be a beautiful centerpiece left on your living room table. You’ll then place fruits, potted flowers, dried flower decorations or lavender bouquets, candles… Let your imagination run wild. Even empty, this large bowl is a decoration in itself.

Handcrafted earthenware

This ceramic piece is shaped by an experienced potter from Vallauris, and is hand painted by the decorator with a certain talent.

Like a watercolor, the azure blue decoration on an off-white background is particularly airy and romantic, inviting reverie and contemplation. A touch of turquoise evokes the so bright tones of the Mediterranean Sea.

Our tip: these pastel colors go particularly well on a blue tablecloth (for example, the Durance tablecloth), to set up a harmonious and elegant table.

Matching bowls

Accompany this centerpiece with smaller assorted salad bowls for your daily life: the Porquerolles round salad bowl model is made in two sizes.

You’ll also find in this section individual flared salad bowls, which can serve a salad or fruit, also available in two sizes. And for more whimsy, go for the pretty, deep wavy bowl.

Of course, all this tableware set can be done with this deco to offer you a complete diningware set.

Manual


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.
