The classic Moroccan cooking method makes its way into modern kitchens courtesy of the kitchen wizards at Le Creuset. Each cast-iron tagine is individually sand-cast and fitted with a cherry red enameled stoneware lid. The base is ideal for searing foods before introducing the lid in the renowned slow-cooking process that produces intense depth of flavor and aroma. The design promotes circulation or heat and moisture, returning condensation to cooking foods for maximum tenderizing and flavorful sauces. Non-reactive enameled surfaces require no seasoning. Perfectly smooth flat base makes excellent contact for efficient cooking on any heat source including induction, glass and ceramic cooktops. Oven-to-table tagine retains heat or cold better than any metal. Broad, shallow base can be used as a tortilla or flatbread warmer, stir-fry pan or open roaster. Care and use guide with delicious recipes is included. Le Creuset cookware in ink, cream and flame also available.
