Ceramic casserole pot with unique bosses on lid interior for holding and distributing moisture and flavor. Goes from oven or stovetop to table. Heavy-duty ceramic maintains temperatures for even cooking. Made in France since 1830. Also available in Navy. (
The beloved casserole, with its slowly baked, comfort food flavor, originally descended from French cuisine (the word casse means “pot” in French). In France, this type of cooking is so popular and cherished that there came to be an endearing nickname for it: cocasse, or cocotte, meaning little hen.
This cocotte is made in Alsace, a historic center for ceramic cookware in northeastern France, by Terre Etoilée, a company with a history that reaches back to 1830. The traditional handmade plaster molds have been replaced with the latest in high tech machinery for consistency and uniformity, but the deft hands of skilled artisans are still required for finishing, polishing and glazing.
To make each cocotte, the ceramic body is fired at an extremely high temperature. This creates thermal shock resistance, so that the pot can go from freezer to oven without cracking. The lid of the cocotte features a unique design feature for more aromatic, flavorful meals: a pattern of small knobs or bosses on the inside of the lid, which attract the condensation and moisture droplets that are naturally depleted from your stewed, braised or slow-cooked recipes, returning these flavorful juices back into the food. The rich red color of the matte exterior makes for a beautiful presentation at the table, while the glossy interior stands up to the metal serving utensils that accompany a festive meal.
This cocotte can be used on the stovetop (both gas and induction burners), and in the oven or microwave. It is safe to be placed in the freezer and can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
