La Chamba Colombian Clay Baking Dish

Hand made in the La Chamba tradition that dates back more than 700 years, this ceramic baker is designed to withstand direct contact with heat, great for use on stovetops, especially open flame cooktops. This versatile baker can be used in the oven for casseroles, lasagnas and baked desserts or on the stovetop for sauteing and griddle recipes. Made completely by hand in the village of La Chamba, Colombia, long famous for its pottery. Only natural, locally mined clays are used. Colombian artisans burnish the clay with agate pebbles prior to firing to give each piece its unique look. The black satin finish and distinct organic shape of this dish makes it excellent for oven-to-table presentation. Natural glaze won't react with foods and is completely food safe. Clay retains heat well for keeping the dish warm at the table.

This is the second piece of the La Chamba collection that I have. The first was a soup pot received as a gift. I liked the product so much, I decided to add to my collection. I bought this baking dish and immediately knew what I was going to cook first. I baked a peach cobbler. This clay dish was perfect for that. The crust was so flakey. The size is just right so that you aren't making too much; but, you are making enough. I can't wait to do something else like enchiladas. And, I want to try these on the grill.
I'm still new to clay cookware and i'm still somewhat over cautious about handling so that it doesn't crack. But, I think its a durable product and I will become more comfortable with that over time.
I would HIGHLY recommend this collections for any cook out there.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design
Cons: Fragile

Wonderful bakeware
October 27, 2012
I have now purchased two of the oval baking dishes. They make a wonderful presentation and are great on the stove top for simmering soups. I was so enthusiastic about the first purchase that I bought a second for my daughter. Easy to use and clean. I did return an earlier purchase that arrived in pieces, but the return and credit were handled with ease & the next two arrived in perfect condition.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Versatile, Shape
