In Moroccan cuisine it is very common to cook in tajine, a terracotta container made up of two parts: a deep plate and a conical lid. It is also known by the same name to the stews that are prepared in it, usually with vegetables or meat.
The main characteristic of the tajine is that food cooking is very slow, as a consequence of the design of the container itself. Since it distributes the heat inside it evenly and efficiently. With the conical lid, what is achieved is that the water vapor remains inside, preserving the properties and characteristics of the food practically intact.
Today we have made a selection of some of the most beautiful (and practical) so that you can start integrating them into your cooking techniques from now on. Of course, before their first use you have to take care of them (here we explain how).
