This French large skillet is not dangerous for your health. Cooking in terracotta is the most natural, and has many taste benefits.
First, it’s ideal for oven baking, « a l’etouffee », without drying out. The clay holds the water contained in meats and vegetables to cook them gently. It’s simple : no risk of burning a dish!
Secondly, the clay retains the taste of each ingredient better without altering it, and the result is a subtle blend of original flavors. Your taste buds will recommend this cooking method.
A handmade ustensil
This small cooking skillet is handmade on demand for you. It is glazed inside, for the sealing of the container, and on the outer edges and the handle. Its practical spout and round handle are characteristic of Provencal pottery. It’s made for slow cooking, with a simmer on the hob to prevent direct contact with the heat.
As a precaution, we advise you to absolutely avoid thermal shocks that can alter the ceramic.
