Glazed Terra Cotta Tagine
Safe for stovetop (when used with a diffuser) or oven up to 390°F, this ceramic cookware doubles as a beautiful serving dish—care should be taken to protect your table as the base will be very hot. Seasoning before use is recommended as it will remove any earthenware taste and strengthen your tagine.

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
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

Questions & Answers
I'm very interested in this terra cotta tagine, but I'm worried about the glaze, as some glaze contains high lead levels. I need to know this before I put an order.Thanks
Can you use directly on the fire or must you use a diffuser.
You should only need to soak this Tagine for 1 hour prior to the first use. It is not necessary to soak it everytime time.
instructions were absent from packaging
After soaking the tagine overnight do I need to let it dry out (and if so for how long) before rubbing the insides with olive oil?Thanks
where can I get an instruction book / recipe book for the Tagines? I ordered 4, which were propmpty delivered, but no instructions on how to use them. except to soak in water before the first use. Do I have to soak them for 12 hours before each use? I used them in the oven once, because I did not know what heat to cook with on top of my glass top stove.Please let me know where I can get the instruction/cook book. Thanks, ,Maxin
