Healthy cooking

This ovenproof casserole dish with lid made by a potter craftsman, will satisfy all those who pay attention to the components of kitchen containers. Clay has been used for millennia to cook food. This pottery does not contain heavy metals and you can cook without danger to your health. In addition, your preparation will remain soft and will be more tasty, thanks to the terracotta that restores the water slowly. With just a few aromatic herbs to perfume your dishes, you will keep an unforgettable memory of the first recipe that you will cook in this Provencal casserole.

Pottery of Vallauris

This round baking dish is similar to the antique potteries of Vallauris. It will be shaped for you, and decorated as in the photo with sgraffito technique, on demand. Just checkmark your choice of decor. It is a typical craft of the most traditional potter city, because the kitchen pottery is manufactured there since the 16th century. Today, we want to encourage artisans who perpetuate this know-how, unfortunately tending to disappear...

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.

Which pot would you use to make soup in?
The pan with lid or the casserole dish would both be appropriate for soup preparation. The best way to use these pots with lids is in the oven because the terracotta keeps the heat and moitirize the food.
