Outstanding value. . .
If you are a ""clay lover,"" you cannot do better than this cooker. I purchased the large tagine several months ago and have used it a couple dozen times for all sorts of dishes.

I've used it for meat; veggies; and, soups & stews; and, for virtually every cuisine in the world. . .from East to West and ""side-trips"" north and south.

It occupies a prominent spot in my kitchen . . .alongside a dozen or so clay (ceramic) cookers of all sizes and shapes.

A note to ""newbies"". . .The glazed finish makes ""clean-up"" simple and easy. (""Old-timers"" already know this

"Good, but can be better"
I like this Tagine - it is very affordable and does what it promised to do. The only problem is the top. Please take a look at the image of the product before you purchase. The top does not have that stereotypical ""knob"", so it is very difficult to lift the top when it is hot. I am pleased with the purchase but I need to figure out how to lift the top without dropping it without burning my hand

Most authentic for a real Moroccan cooking!
This is a great tajine that is most similar to what you would get at a real souk in Morocco. We have tried to bring back tajines from Morocco but the lid always breaks. My husband is Moroccan and we cook tajines often. He says that this one from Sur la table is fantastic and cooks very well. I agree from the tajines that I have tasted at his families home. Yes the top is a little hard to grasp but if you just use a dishtowel to help it works great. Don't be fancy and buy those other ones be authentic and cook with clay! We love ours!

so easy
i have been using mine weekly for a year and never 'seasoned' it! oops. i washed with sudsy warm water , rubbed with oiland let er rip. i always set the loaded tagineon my electric burner coldand then set on low.when i is ready.never take the lid off and i add no liquids. i start with porkloin medallions cubed,lamb,chicken, beef,whichever,add one onion,one apple, a yellow potato, afewsprinkled raisins,i have even cut plums in hunks. the trick is to hunk all in one-two inch cubes,make a pyramid and put the lid on. it makes it's own broth to steam,and one slight tspn of olive oil and the seasoning for the dish.i kept reordering the small packets of seasoning until i just read the engredients and made a big batch ofmy own and sealed it as any spice mixture. pork/apple, chicken/dried apricots, lamb/dried figs, beef tenderloin/pluots,plums etc.anything goes well in this with the seasoning. the food doesn't cook to mush and the taste is incredible. i buy a whole porkloin and slice 2in medallions to freeze individualy. i am single. the small size tagine cooks enough for two hefty portions/meals. i never turn up from low and it is a short cooking time. when i take the lid off,i have a beautiful pyramid of food ready to serve as is. plenty of veggies and the right partion of meat. i have also cooked just meat chunks and served over rice or cousous .packed away my slow cookers. this thing is great

This is the poorest example of a classic tagine I have ever used.
I bought 1 dozen less than 9 months ago for use in my restaurant. We don't use them for cooking or for even heating tagines, just for serving and presentation on the table. The tagines are very poorly made, poorly glazed and hardly fired at all. The glaze tended to crack and peel after just 2-3 uses and the entire tagine bowls as well as the lids chipped and cracked after just a few uses. Do yourself a favor and buy something authentic, well-made and properly glazed. These are complete junk and useless

Just made first delicious tagine!
This tagine is my new favorite pot! We just made a spectacularly flavored lamb tagine, and the vessel performs perfectly. You absolutely must season it as instructed, and we also bought a cast-iron heat diffuser - highly recommended. As for the lid, I used my jar lifter tongs. Not a problem. Bottom line, this tagine along with the ""Easy Tagine"" cookbook will enable you to make some seriously outstanding meals

This is great!
I seasoned it before using and have had no problems at all. The foods taste exactly as I had over seas. I am happy to have this in my kitchen now.

Over a year of use and still perfect
I bought one of these over a year ago and have been using regularly, slow cooking on the stove top followed with lower heat broil in the stove. After falling in love with the Tagine concept I decided to buy a larger model of a different way more expensive brand. To my surprise, this cheaper model is by far better than the fancy brand. It is better designed and the little hole in the lid I find essential to release just enough pressure not to leak the juice from the sides. Actually, after my experience with both I managed to make a similar hole in the expensive brand so it would't leak on the stove top. The food comes out very nice. I have to emphasize, however, that I use it very carefully and use a flame diffuser underneath. Moreover, I now bought another one for our vacation home which has an electric stove top and still worked very well. For the price and the quality (no cracks what so ever) you can't go wrong.

Restauranteur probably overheated a hurry...that's a restaurant....
Handle top with any rubber glove, or silicone mitt for easy grip. I use disposable medical exam type gloves for cooking anyway; saves my hands from all the washings with soap and water ! ....Jo

I loved this product, however it didn't last very long. I knew this was a possibility with anything clay. it is a great way for some one to fall in love with Tagines. My next Tagine will be of a sturdier model.

Broke in half after first use
We received this as a gift along with the Easy Tajine recipe book. We were extremely excited. We started our recipe on our gas stovetop and 10 minutes later, it broke in half... what a complete disappointment...

Cooking became better
This is the third one I have purchased, and need to get one more. I had purchased the large one for my older son the first time, he cooked a lamb meal in it and I don't like lamb, but after that meal, I purchased one for my self, the small one, perfect for single people, I then bought one for the kids grandmother,and she loves it. My youngest son raved about the roast I cooked in mine to his wife, I now need to get the large one for his family.
