									  Reco International Romertopf Clay Baker

The Romertopf 2 to 5 pound clay baker is large enough to prepare 1 to 3 servings of meat or poultry.
Clay pot cooking allows you to prepare quick, healthy, high quality meals that cost less and taste
better. Food cooked in a clay pot requires no liquid unless specifically called for. The result: all natural
juices, the full flavor and taste and all the essential nutrients and vitamins are retained. The taste is
truly superb. You can cook all kinds of food without adding any fat, in line with the demands of modern
dietetics. The Romertopf is made of a special porous clay and is unglazed inside and out allowing it to
breathe during the cooking process. By soaking the pot in water before cooking, moisture is absorbed
by the clay. The tiny water particles are released during cooking, penetrating and blending with the
natural food juices, increasing flavor, tenderness and enhancing aroma.
For centuries food has been cooked in earthenware pots over open fires or in brick ovens. Römertopf
carries on this tradition by crafting clay pots and dishes specifically intended for cooking a variety of
vegetables, meats, casseroles, and breads in the home oven. Manufactured in Mexico, each vessel is
made from unglazed and porous terra cotta containing no lead or cadmium. Before each use, the pot is
soaked in water in order to absorb a certain amount of moisture into the permeable clay. This moisture
is slowly released during cooking, sealing in the natural juices and increasing the flavor and
tenderness. Covered in a bounty of sculpted agricultural motifs, and with a built-in handle, the
Römertopf 1/2-quart baker can be used to prepare a small chicken, a meat and vegetable stew, or a
casserole for a family of four. Measuring 7-1/2 by 11 inches and standing 6 inches tall, the baker can
go straight from the oven to the table and can be used as a serving dish. Intended to be used only in
the oven, Römertopf recommends washing all clay pots by hand. Due to their porous and unglazed
nature, the pots should not be exposed to extreme temperature changes. --Lea Werbel
