La Chamba Colombian Clay Baking Dish
Hand made in the La Chamba tradition that dates back more than 700 years, this ceramic baker is designed to withstand direct contact with heat, great for use on stovetops, especially open flame cooktops.
- This versatile baker can be used in the oven for casseroles, lasagnas and baked desserts or on the stovetop for sautéing and griddle recipes.
- Made completely by hand in the village of La Chamba, Colombia, long famous for its pottery.
- Only natural, locally mined clays are used.
- Colombian artisans burnish the clay with agate pebbles prior to firing to give each piece its unique look.
