Use & Care


  • Season your tagine before first use: Submerge the tagine in water for 24 hours. Then apply 2 Tbs. olive oil to the interior base and 1 Tbs. oil to the interior lid; spread with your hands. Place the tagine in the oven and heat to 350 degrees. Let it sit for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the tagine to cool down inside the oven. To avoid damaging the tagine, use with a heat diffuser on the stovetop or use low to medium-low heat only. Oven safe to 350°F.
  • Use on any gas or electric cooktop (except induction).


  • Hand-wash with hot water. If soap is used, tagine will need to be re-seasoned.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should not be sold as cookware, pottery only ... I am very disappointed Williams Sonoma would sell this as cookware. When I When I received this it smelled strongly of a harsh chemical glaze. I inspected the lid to find deep pits in the glaze, not only on the exterior but on the interior as well. I also saw a very deep chip on the outer edge of the lid exposing the unglazed clay. Glaze in this condition should not be sold for food preparation, I am horrified. I am also stuck with carrying it to the nearest store to return. Completely unacceptable, this should only be sold as decorative pottery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tagine but post better instructions! William Sonoma does not list good instructions! Tagines are fragile terracotta with a glaze! Terracotta is absorbant, meaning it wicks water, oil, sauces. It will take the flavor of the spices you use. To season, soak 24 hours. It will crackle and sound like its breaking, thats because it is. The Glaze "crackles"and this is how the flavors and oils get into the terracotta to season. WS says rub with oil, put in oven 45 min at 350*. This is the problem! Ceramic can't have a temperature "shock". So tagines must be warmed slowly. Put on warm and then up to 100* after 10 min or so. Then up to 150 after 20 min. Then up to 200 after 30 min, etc. If you heat too fast, you'll break it. Once at 350* dont open the oven! The cold air can crack it. Turn it off and allow to cool. Do the same on stove. Start at simmer and after 30 min, raise it to 1. Tagines are low heat. Cook at lowest settings. It will take a while to simmer but will boil eventually.
