For centuries food has been cooked in earthenware pots over open fires or in brick ovens. Römertopf carries on this tradition by crafting clay pots and dishes specifically intended for cooking a variety of vegetables, meats, casseroles, and breads in the home oven. Manufactured in Mexico, each vessel is made from unglazed and porous terra cotta containing no lead or cadmium. Before each use, the pot is soaked in water in order to absorb a certain amount of moisture into the permeable clay. This moisture is slowly released during cooking, sealing in the natural juices and increasing the flavor and tenderness.
The new large garlic baker from Römertopf is perfect for roasting garlic to be used as a spread on bread or in soups, sauces, and gravies. The dome-shaped baker stands 6 inches tall, measures 7-1/4 inches in diameter, and is adorned with a sculpted head of garlic that serves as the handle atop the lid. With the ability to roast between four and six heads of garlic, this large baker can also be used as a serving dish. Intended to be used only in the oven, Römertopf recommends washing all clay pots by hand. Due to their porous and unglazed nature, the pots should not be exposed to extreme temperature changes. --Lea Werbel
