Our tagine can be used over any direct source of heat, it is safe to use both in the oven and on the hob – gas, electric, Aga or ceramic.
It can also be used under the grill or in the microwave and can be washed safely in the dishwasher.
A tagine is a traditional Moroccan stew and it is also the name given to the shallow earthenware cooking dish with a tall, conical lid in which the stew is cooked.
The food is placed in the base. As it cooks, steam rises and is trapped in the lid, keeping the food moist.
Cooking with a tagine is similar to cooking with a pressure cooker or a slow cooker. Recipes for tagines are similar to those for meat, fish or poultry stews.
Before being used for the first time the cookware should be thoroughly cleaned with washing-up liquid and a sponge to remove any residues left after the firing process. Each piece should then be filled three-quarters full with water and placed in an oven for 30 minutes at 200¢ªC or Gas Mark 6.
