A cazuela is one of the oldest cooking vessels, used since pre-Roman times and still in use today in every Spanish kitchen. 
It is used exactly as you would use a frying pan, over direct heat on an electric or gas hob, an open fire or barbecue. 
It is also oven proof and makes a great baker and roasting dish for both sweet and savory dishes. 
Due to the organic nature of terracotta cooking in a cazuela adds flavour to food. Also, they are so attractive they can go straight to the table.
This product is made from high quality fire proof terracotta clay. Brittle when new, it is important that the correct simple pre-use procedure is followed.

Always begin cooking on a low heat. The heat can be increased once the dish is warm.
