A stylish dutch oven for cooking and serving, the Chamba soup pot comes in two sizes. Perfect for soups, stews, beans, even a whole chicken. Can be used on a gas stove top, in the oven, or even over an open fire.
Chamba black clay cooking vessels are non-toxic and handmade using a traditional process that dates back centuries. Crafted by generations of families in the village of La Chamba, Colombia, these vessels are made of local micaceous clay that is mined from the banks of the Magdalena River. Each piece is stone-smoothed by hand and fired on-site to achieve the signature black finish, making each piece unique. Expect subtle variations in texture and finish due to the nature of the materials and the handmade quality.
Chamba ware is safe for heat, including the oven, grill, and gas stove. As with all natural materials, never shock the dish by moving it quickly from cold to hot, or vice versa. Warm it slowly over low heat to start, and never submerge a hot pan in water.
To season, fill the pot 3/4 full with water and place uncovered in a 400° F oven for 30 minutes.
