Inspired by tradition, a healthy kitchen and design, the Italian designer, Stefania Vasques, has developed a modern-interpreted collection of pots. As a symbol of Slow Food, a healthy diet and particular aesthetic appeal are united. Oval and round casseroles, mini cocottes for creative dishes and serving ideas, as well as two grill pans should all be found in a modern kitchen and through their trendy colours ensure optical highlights on the stove and on the table.
The optimal thermal conductivity means that the cast iron pots and pans distribute the heat slowly and evenly, as well as retaining it for a long time. The sensory attributes of the food stay intact, the vitamins and nutrients are preserved and the taste of the meals are intensive, even without an excessive use of seasoning. A low electricity or gas consumption results in a good environmental footprint. By nature, cast iron has non-stick attributes as it closes the pores of the food, as well as being 100% recyclable.
Operating and Maintenance Instructions 'Terra.Cotto'
Following a few simple steps will ensure that your Terra.Cotto cookware will last a lifetime:
FIRST USE. Completely submerge your cookware, including the cover, in lukewarm water and leave to soak for at least 12 hours. Leave it to dry, with its bottom facing upwards.
NO NEED TO WASH BY HAND. All Terra.Cotto products are dishwasher safe.
CLEANING. Terracotta cookware can be easily cleaned with hot water. This means that any grease that has been absorbed burnt on during cooking can easily be removed. Stubborn stains can be removed using either hot water, baking soda or a commercial detergent. Using a cleaning sponge is possible because the pots are coated internally with a scratch-resistant glaze. However, repetitive and vigorous scouring and scrubbing with steel wool should be avoided.
DRYING. It is extremely important to leave the cookware to dry completely and with the bottom facing upwards.
