La Chamba Oval Dish
Sophisticated and practical, hand-crafted black clay La Chamba cookware from La Chamba, Colombia can go directly from microwave, stove or oven to your table top.
The innate elegance and usability make black La Chamba cookware perfect from cooking to serving. There are no toxins in the La Chamba because no glazes are used (the pieces are hand-burnished) and there is no lead in the clay. Care is easy: a quick soak and wipe down with a sponge is all that is needed.
|Care||Safe to use on the stove, in the oven, in the microwave and under the grill. All pieces can be used over direct gas, on the barbeque and even on an open fire. Wooden utensils are recommended to prevent scratching.|
Prior to first use
La Chamba items should be thoroughly cleaned with mild detergent to remove any residue that may be present from the firing process. Each piece is then filled ¾ full with water and placed in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 30mins. This process allows La Chamba items to seal. A complete seal is sometimes achieved only after items have been used several times for cooking.
