More about Romertopf

The clay roaster called a römertopf (“Roman pot”) was first introduced in Germany in 1967, its design inspired by centuries-old clay pot cooking methods. Made with natural clay deposits unique to the region, the covered pots are prized for their ability to produce exceptionally moist, tender braises and roasts. The traditional clay baker offers a simple, efficient way to slow cook foods in their natural juices.
