Details: Inspired by the slowly simmered, heavily seasoned cuisines indigenous to North Africa, this 2-quart Moroccan Tagine by Le Creuset is a classic example of form following function. Its distinctive cone-shaped lid promotes natural steam circulation and allows for the constant return of condensation to the base, moistening ingredients and tenderizing tough fibers within cuts of meat. And because it's crafted from durable cast iron, the Moroccan Tagine retains heat longer and cooks food more evenly and thoroughly. Traditional Moroccan tagines (the dish is named for the cookware) typically include a combination of braised meat (often lamb, beef or chicken), fruits, root vegetables, nuts, and fragrant spices like cinnamon, saffron, and ginger. Measuring 12-4/5 by 12-4/5 by 11-2/5 inches, the Moroccan Tagine makes a thoughtful gift idea or a unique addition to any cook's collection. As part of Le Creuset's line of enameled cast iron, the cookware's low-profile, high-heat, cast-iron base distributes heat evenly and provides superior heat retention--great for stovetop cooking, as well as for browning vegetables or meat before steaming. The Moroccan Tagine's colorful stoneware lid forms an excellent seal to keep moisture and heat inside, while its conical shape also helps moisture circulate throughout so there's no need to open, stir, or turn the tagine, making food preparation a snap. The cookware can be used on any stovetop surface, including induction, and be safely used in the oven (up to 500 degrees F) or under the grill/broiler for exceptional versatility. Beautiful enough for the table yet durable enough to outlive its lifetime limited warranty, the cookware should be hand washed for best results.
