The slightly larger version of our popular olive and tapa cazuela. Perfect for cocktail parties or an evening at home with friends. Great for cooking or on the table filled with tapas portions of olives, marcona almonds, tapenades, salsas, garlic shrimp or individual servings of paella!
Before using your cazuela for the first time, soak it in cold water overnight. It need not be soaked again. Cazuelas can be used in the oven, on the stove-top, on the grill, in a clay or brick oven, and in the microwave. Until your cazuela has been broken in — that is, used many times — keep stovetop temperatures at low or medium, and oven temperatures at 400 degrees or less. Avoid sudden temperature changes, such as putting cold water in a hot cazuela, as this can cause cracking. Although handwashing is recommended, cazuelas are dishwasher-safe if positioned carefully so as to avoid chipping the glaze.
