Dating as far back as the 9th century, the tagine’s conical shape creates a moist, hot cooking environment. As the food cooks, steam rises into the cone, condenses, and then trickles back down the sides. The dish finishes tender, aromatic and rich with flavour.
Handmade in France since 1850, each piece of Emile Henry ovenware is unique and signed by the craftsman that created it.
Made from special “Flame” ceramic, this tagine can be used in the oven and directly on the stovetop. Always start on a low heat for five minutes and gently increase the temperature. Every Emile Henry “Flame” ceramic oven dish is oven-safe up to 500°C (930°F).
The special clay used in their creation comes straight from Burgundy and is used to make Emile Henry’s special formula “Flame” ceramic. It heats evenly for gentle baking and browning, bringing out the most subtle flavours in your dishes, and will keep your dishes hot for a long time after being removed from the oven. The supremely durable glaze resists scratches and will not chip, crack, or craze over time, nor will it absorb odours or flavours.
Allow your dish to cool down completely before cleaning. Do not pour cold water onto a hot dish as it may shatter from the thermal shock.
For stubborn baked on residue, soak in hot water and white vinegar before cleaning.
Hand washing recommended.
