We call this line, the "Le Creuset of pottery." The Chamba casserole dishes are just as beautiful as they are functional. They evenly heat and cover food as you cook. A must have casserole dish piece that allows conscious cooks to create a variety of exquisite meals for any occasion.
Not recommended for the dishwasher, but hey sometimes we cheat and so far so good.
Black clay Chamba cookware is well-known throughout Colombia and has been used for preparing and serving traditional dishes for hundreds of years. It is still made in the traditional manner, by families in the village of La Chamba, on the banks of the Magdalena River in Central Colombia. Each piece is hand-crafted using local clays, burnished by hand and fired on-site. Chamba is strong enough to use on the stovetop, oven or microwave. Cooking with clay creates food that is healthier, tastier and moister!
