Why We Love It

Tagine is a traditional Moroccan stew that is slow-cooked and served in a (aptly named) Terracotta Tagine like this one. This sturdy earthenware item features a shallow base and conical-shaped lid that can be used in the oven and is designed to keep foods moist while cooking. Tagines have been used for centuries around the world - we discovered this well-priced Terracotta Tagine in Portugal.

This tangine is a wonderful and useful addition to my kitchen. Smooth glazed finish cleans up easily every time and looks like new. My favorite dish to prepare is Morroccan chicken (or lamb) and my kids LOVE it!
The meat always comes out moist and tender and the veggies all blend with the meat juices to create a rich fragrant broth. I usually serve it over rice or sautéed polenta to absorb every drop. It accommodates at least a 6lb chicken which easily serves four. If you need to stretch the servings to six then use only deboned chicken or lamb.

Got this for my birthday and was so excited to use it, so when the tagine broke apart on the stove top and spilled my dinner all over the floor, I was extremely disappointed… First of all, the tagine did not come with any instructions for use, and neither did the "Tagine" cookbook World Market sells. I knew that surely this terra cotta vessel could not be used directly on a burner, so I looked up a "how to" on cooking in a tagine. All the sites I found said that a diffuser was required (not mentioned at all by World Market), so I purchased a diffuser specifically for cooking in earthen ware on the stovetop. I began cooking on the lowest setting, with the diffuser, and noticed that it would take a very long time for this tagine to get hot enough to actually cook anything, but I was patient. A few minutes in, I heard a crack, but the "how to-s" said that small cracks in the finish were to be expected so I thought nothing of it. However, as I poured in the broth for my recipe, I noticed a large, leaking crack on the side of the tagine (please not that the tagine had not been dropped and had been carefully wrapped since it was purchased, so the crack was not there before I began cooking). Not wanting this to make a mess all over my stove, I decided to try to pour it all into a saucepan to cook (food was still lukewarm, not hot). When I carefully touched the tagine to pick it up, it literally cracked into 5 big pieces (and several little ones) and spilled my dinner all over myself, the stove and the floor. Thank goodness the food was not hot or I could have been badly injured!

This may be a display piece, or maybe even a serving vessel, but DO NOT cook in it! You could be seriously hurt!

Aside from that, the tagine cracked at an extremely low temp, so there is no way that it just got too hot. Also no way that food would ever cook in this without it cracking.

Not for stove top

Comments about Terracotta Tagine:

Mine broke on the first use. I used it on the stove top with a diffuser and gentile heat. Afterwards, I read up on types of tagine materials. Contrary to the advertising on this website, terra cotta pots such as this one should not be used on a stove top. Some tagines made from refractory ceramic may be safe to use on the stove top. Metal base tagines are definitely safe.

Comments about Terracotta Tagine:

I followed the instructions that came with the tagine, which was to wash the lid and base in warm sudsy water before and after use. I hope that is sufficient and it doesn't break sooner than normal. Used it to make an Indin style lamb dish, and it cooked beautifully and was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed cooking in this novel piece of cookware.

Comments about Terracotta Tagine:

I have had it for a month and have used it with great results. I was very tenacious. It took months to have it sent to me. It was only available in-store for a long period. As soon as I heard it was available again online I ordered and received it.
It is a wonderful way to cook chicken and rice, stews and my favorite dishes from Morocco. I am so happy I have it at last.
It has to be soaked overnight, dried completely, seasoned and put into a cold oven. Then, set oven to 200F overnight. Allow to cool inside of oven until cool to the touch. If you put it on a surface cooler than it is it will crack. Never cook over 325F. It will crack. Good luck and I hope you will love yours as I do mine. It's big enough to serve four full entrees from.

Great Kitchen Addition

Comments about Terracotta Tagine:

I got this because a friend of mine made a chicken dish in his tagine and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. I'm looking forward to lots of great braises this fall.

The first time World Market shipped this to me, I received the item broken. I called to ask if I could return it to my local store instead of shipping it back and they said to throw it away (they didn't want anyone getting hurt on the broken pieces) and shipped me a new one right away. It's rare to get such great customer service these days. It made me love the tagine even more!

Use it a lot

Comments about Terracotta Tagine:

We didn't buy a tagine when we were in Morocco recently because we didn't want to haul it around-and we expected to buy one at World Market for a very reasonable $20. There are prettier ones (many are used for serving, not cooking), but this one fits the bill. I never figured out how to use a Romertopf years ago; the tagine is simple to use and accomplishes much the same thing. There are many recipes online to improvise from, especially if you don't like sweet main dishes. Skinless chicken is great, cooking in 1 1/2-2 hours; non-tender meat needs 3-4. I've decided to use my tagine in place of a Dutch oven for stews because it requires no water, just a couple tablespoons of olive oil at the bottom and lots of veggies and meat, yielding a very tasty dish with intensely flavored liquid. You don't have to saute anything, just dump it in. The tagine holds enough for 4 people, maybe up to 6 if you cram things in.
