Small Round Oven dish - Root Vegetables
Small round oven dish perfect for a dessert, small pie or reheating leftover dinner. There's a bunch of healthy root vegetables in the picture, the inside is in dark warm grey, the outside of the dish is bright and orange.
It is approx 13cm in diameter and 4 cm deep.
Oven dishes are made of clay that is very resilient. They are sturdy and beautifully decorated, and the glaze on them has a lovely crackle effect.
We only ever make very small batches of these. Each piece is decorated with a unique design that is a combination of hand-cut paper stencils, scraffitto, relief and free-hand decoration.
USE and CARE
The oven dishes can be used for cooking, they are also dishwasher and microwave safe. The only thing they don't appreciate is a sudden temperature change. It's best to place te dish into the oven before it reaches top temperature so it has a chance to warm up gradually. Once cooking is finished, open the oven a crack and let cool down for a few minutes. Never wash the dish before it cools down completely.
Because the glaze is crackled, food cooked in them may stain the crackle lines with time. It is advised to line the dishes with baking paper of foil, especially if you're cooking dark coloured foods like beetroot, aubergines etc, using spices that stain, or roast meat or fish that produces lots of juices.
Some of you like to use these as wall pieces. If you have that use of the dish in mind, let us know and we will fix a hook at the back of it, make it ready for hanging.
