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.

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.
