La Chamba Colombian Clay Round Casserole Dish

Hand made in the La Chamba tradition that dates back more than 700 years, this ceramic pot is designed to withstand direct contact with heat, great for use on stovetops, especially open flame cooktops. This covered dish is perfect for slow-cooking casseroles and stews in the oven or it can be used on the stovetop for soup and rice dishes. 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.

M Favorite Cooking Vessel
July 27, 2013
After reading so many positive reviews, I order my La Chamba casserole dish and seasoned it according to instructions. The next day I tested it on my gas range by preparing my favorite dahl recipe with red lentils. I'll admit, I held my breath as I turned up the gas burner to bring the lentils to a boil. La Chamba performed perfectly. When the soup was done, I served it from the vessel and the clean up was easy. This cooking vessel sits on my range top waiting to be utilized again. It's so attractive, It will not be stored under a cabinet. I find myself searching for more recipes that can be prepared in La Chamba.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight

What a beauty!

This cookware was on my wish list for a long time. I think it's a piece of artwork just by itself on the counter top. My husband thought that I'm using this just for decoration.
I fill the pot 3/4 full of water and leave on gas stovetop, It took too long to get liquid to the boiling point (about 40 mins). However, it kept warm pretty well after turn off gas.
I would recommend it to my friends and give it 5 stars if it has better heat conduction.
By the way, it shows burn mark on outside of bottom part after 2 usage (see pic.)
Pros: Easy to Use, Color, Size, Shape, Design
Cons: poor heat conduction
