An earthenware slow cooker absorbs water and restores it to the ingredients slowly to keep them moist. No risk of burning a dish, if you add water, sauce or broth at the beginning of the heat. Cooking in a terracotta container is perfect for recipes to simmer gently over low heat.
The other advantage of the Vallauris faience is a simple manufacture. You can use it on any cooking fire without direct contact with heat (flames, induction to avoid). The best way is the heat of the oven for a homogeneous distribution. This deep cooking pan is compatible with the microwave and can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
A strong tradition
Culinary pottery from Vallauris is a very traditional Provencal craft in the city since the sixteenth century. It gives life to ancestral shapes like the « daubiere », or the « toupin », and unfortunately tends to disappear nowadays. If you are sensitive to the beauty of an artisanal ceramic, you will appreciate this cooking pot with handles. It will stand on your cooktop or your worktop without complex, because it’s pretty and decorative. No need to put it away in the closet.
