A new concept in designer cookware but with a history dating back 700 years.
Each piece of Tierra Negra is handmade from a coarse gray clay. A finer terracotta clay is then applied thinly over the entire surface as a glaze. After drying, this is burnished with very smooth pebbles or semi-precious stones such us Tiger’s Eye. The cookware is then placed inside earthenware urns and fired in large earth kilns.
Our stewpot gift set 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.
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˚C or Gas Mark 6.
Our stewpot gift set includes a 2.5 litre casserole, 4 soup bowls, a condiment dish and a trivet.
