We call this line, the Le Creuset of pottery. Seriously, these deep plates are gorgeous, lightweight, completely easy. Made from non-toxic material, Chamba Imports cookware is ideal for the conscientious home cook.
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!
