Cazuela- Terra Cotta Dish
Terra Cotta Cazuelas at New Canaan Olive Oil
Cazuelas make beautiful plates for dipping, roasting or baking a variety of dishes. Before heating your cazuela for the first time, soak it in cold water overnight. Cazuelas can be used in the oven, on the stove-top, on the grill, in a clay or brick oven, and in the microwave. Until your cazuela has been broken in - that is, used many times - keep stovetop temperatures at low or medium, and oven temperatures at 400 degrees or less. All of our Cazuelas from Spain are lead-free. Avoid sudden temperature changes, such as putting cold water in a hot cazuela, as this can cause cracking. For longevity, handwashing is recommended. However, cazuelas are dishwasher-safe if positioned carefully so as to avoid chipping the glaze.
