Ever since I started Living Clay I have been wanting to offer a range of covered (and uncovered) casserole dishes and finally here they are. Kerrie has put together a small range of colour coordinated, clay kitchenware/cookware items which are modern, earthy and practical. Whilst the idea of cooking in clay may be a very old one, it's still a very good one as so many chef's will attest to. Slow cooking in clay produces the most flavoursome meals I have ever eaten. I suspect Australia is one of the few countries in the world who have abandoned clay pot cooking in recent years - probably because it's easier and quicker to use metal alternatives. Most of Europe, All of Asia and most of South America still use clay cookware for those special slow cooked meals.
This small dish has a capacity of 1 litre and is ideal for two people, whereas the large one serves 4 in a 2 litre capacity, it is sturdy and strong and if looked after carefully will last for many years. It can handle whatever heat you wish to cook with provided it is in an oven and NOT on direct heat i.e. not on your cooktop. It is foodsafe, dishwasher proof and microwave oven proof but please be aware it does NOT like thermal shock
