Chamba Clay Cookware

Made traditionally in Colombia.

$69.00 - $98.00


A versatile vessel for cooking meats, stews, pulses, and more. Burnished by hand with stones and fired on-site to create a strong, deep black finish with a light glow. Completely non-toxic, made from lead-free clay and without glaze (the dramatic color comes from the clay itself). Recommended use: before cooking, season by filling three-quarters full with water and placing in the oven, uncovered, for thirty minutes at 400 degrees F. This will create a seal on the cookware, which is complete after several stovetop uses. Can be used directly on a heat source, including open fire.
