The tagine's conical shape makes a uniquely moist, hot cooking environment for the dish being cooked. You can use it to cook or bake in the oven. The base is wide and shallow, and the tall lid fits snugly inside. As the food cooks, steam rises into the cone, condenses, and then trickles down the sides back into the dish.
Our handmade Mediterranean dish is made from clay. Very robust and the color is food suitable. You can wash this item in the dishwasher. These items are handmade and therefore might have minor imperfections in their structure and color.
