The Moroccan Medium Tagine Pot, available at Afritibi, is an essential culinary tool for both cooking and decorating in Moroccan and Maghreb cuisine. In recent years, this pot has gained international popularity among food enthusiasts for its ability to simmer and slowly cook delicious dishes with meats, vegetables, and/or fish, infusing them with sweet and exotic flavors.
Advantages of a Glazed Tagine Pot
The glazed tagine pot is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. The varnish on the pot simplifies maintenance and cleaning, while also making it waterproof. This feature allows the pot to be used on various heat sources, including a brazier, gas fire, oven, or ceramic hob. However, it’s important to ensure that the underside of the dish is smooth to avoid scratching the ceramic hob.
Using a Varnished Tagine Pot
Essential Steps for Protection
Before using the tagine pot for the first time, it is recommended to immerse both the dish and the lid in cold water mixed with white vinegar for at least 24 hours. This immersion is crucial to prevent cracking. After this period, the tagine should be left to air dry for another 24 hours, avoiding direct sunlight, to ensure the terracotta is properly dried before use.
Other Uses of a Glazed Tagine
Beyond its cooking capabilities, the glazed tagine pot can also be used as a decorative piece for table settings, adding an exotic touch to your dinner parties. It’s a great way to impress guests and introduce them to the flavors of Moroccan tagines.
