Asha Terracotta Tagine
Slow cook flavourful dishes with the Asha Terracotta Tagine. This tagine cooking pot is a two-piece classic Moroccan-style cooking vessel made from high fired terracotta that is safe to cook and serve in.
As your dish cooks, the conical lid will return condensation to the bottom of the tagine pot, allowing the meat, herbs, spices, and sauce to slow braise and build flavour without losing moisture to the air. A versatile piece, the tagine's steamy braising features are well suited for cooking tougher cuts of meat, making them more tender and flavourful.
The tagine must be seasoned before first use:
Submerge tagine in water for at least an hour.
Rub the inside of the base and lid with olive oil.
Place in cold oven and set temperate to 300F and leave for two hours
Remove from oven and leave to cool
Once fully cool, wash your tagine in warm soapy water and dry with a clean cloth.
Oven safe up to 390F. Dishwasher Microwave Oven Safe
