Link to Purchase Online/Where Canadians can find a list of locations to purchase it:

Whether recreating meals enjoyed on travels abroad or taking your first foray into Moroccan food, a stoneware tagine helps to achieve an authentic dish. For centuries, North African cuisine has relied upon this unusual-looking cooking pot, whose lid ensures steam cools and re-condenses into the food below, to create meltingly tender casseroles, while the slow cooking develops all those wonderful flavours for a truly exotic taste experience.

Tagine consists of two parts: a base unit which is flat and circular with low sides and a large cone shaped cover that rests inside the base during cooking

Steam cools in the cone-shaped lid then re-condenses to keep food tender. Intensifies flavour and tenderness.

Other features:

  • One pot cooking.
  • Oil free cooking.
  • Healthy and natural way to cook.
  • Food cooks in its own juices.
