Cook healthy and good

Perfect for preparing good slow-cooking dishes, this pot belly cookware contains no toxic components. The enamelled ceramic inside keeps the natural moisture of the ingredients during cooking. This "toupin" is a perfect tool for baking in the oven, meat dishes and vegetables.

The tastes and flavors of each food mingle with a subtle mellowness without risk of burning in the bottom of the pan. In addition, no need to add fat, water vapor will make it. Put more aromatics (of Provence obviously), and enjoy!

Artisanal and typical

The pottery of Vallauris is originally a traditional culinary ceramic that was born in the Gallo-Roman era thanks to clay deposits nearby. It’s now on the verge of disappearing because very few potters still make it. This skillet pan will be handmade and ordered so that you can admire every day a rare piece by its shape, and unique in its imperfection. If you like the work of a craftsman, you will love this round and jovial Provencal skillet.

Instructions for use


Before the first use of your culinary pottery, it is recommended to soak it in water all night and let it dry before use.
Then, rub the surface with garlic and let rest for at least 5 hours. After this, you may wash the pottery as usual, and cook in it.
No culinary piece of earthenware can be directly put on fire or flames or any cooktop without being exposed to crackle and even destruction.
It is strongly recommended to put a simmer mat under your pottery which will allow a better heat distribution and a longer life for your pot.
Furthermore, do not put an empty pot on a cooking fire. Also, never cool the pottery suddenly after taking out of fire, never take a dish out of the freezer and put in the oven straight away. It could produce a dramatic thermal shock and considerably alter your pottery.
Thanks to these advises, you will discover again the basic taste of your recipes in this natural earthenware, and enjoy the pleasure of good cuisine.
