Product Details

Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

For centuries, North Africa has had access to a myriad of wonderful spices to complement the region's diverse selection of seafood and meats. The traditional method of cooking in North Africa--the Tagine--has been used for centuries to slow cook with these spices. Precious little water is needed to keep foods moist, and the unique design of the Tagine lid locks in the combination of flavors. The base in this model, made of cast iron, works with any heat source: gas, electric radiant or solid plates, ceramic, halogen, induction, and Aga-Rayburn-type stoves. The tall, inverted cone shape keeps the top far from the heat source and from absorbing the heat, and thus stays cool to the touch. Le Creuset has also included many wonderful North African recipes for the Tagine, including soups, main dishes, salads, and desserts. Create a truly traditional North African feast with this amazing kitchen supplement. --Teresa Simanton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tajine-ius! Feb. 24 2010
By Joshua Tallent - Published on Amazon.com
I first encountered both Moroccan cuisine and Le Creuset's version of the classic Moroccan tajine in France several years ago. Only upon my return to the United States, however, was my desire for this obscure item finally fulfilled. As is the case with all Le Creuset cookware I've used, the tajine's heavy cast iron base distributes heat evenly and effectively. The tajine is essentially a braising device: the temperature differential between the hot base and the cooler ceramic top causes rising steam to condense, basting the contents as they cook. A simple tajine of chicken and sweet potato with stewed prunes or apricots and almonds produces impeccably moist chicken and well-cooked vegetables each and every time. I've yet to try my hand at lamb, but I anticipate similarly succulent results. The base alone serves equally well for small curries, sauces or stews. My only wish would be for a slightly larger tajine; the two-liter capacity is perfect for two to four people, but would be too small for any more copious meal. Ultimately, though, this is an unusual and unusually versatile and effective piece of cookware and I feel very fortunate to own one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enamel on base had flaked off Nov. 1 2010
By A reviewer in FL - Published on Amazon.com
I loved using this piece of cookware until I noticed the enamel on the base is flaking off. It wouldn't be a problem if it was on the outside of the base, but it's on the inside, so I haven't used it since noticing. I see everyone else is very happy with theirs, so it might be that I got a defective one. Le Creuset wants me to pay for the shipping to send it back (both the top and bottom piece, even though the bottom is the only part with the problem) so they can evaluate it. It's pretty heavy, so I'm pondering whether to skip the shipping and just move to a different brand and toss this one. Hopefully nobody else will have this problem with theirs. Mine is about a year old, and I've used it maybe 10 times. Update: I decided to return the unit and they replaced it without a problem. I think the shipping was around $20, but hopefully this one won't have any issues. Another update: no problems with this new one. I may have been at fault for the flaking afterall - I had put the heat on high a couple times, to get it to heat up faster, and that probably caused the flaking. Be sure to keep the heat low at all times. It was well worth the $20 shipping charge to get another one. Very happy with this product. Upgraded to 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, exotic and functional Nov. 1 2009
By aries magic - Published on Amazon.com

In the Le Creuset fashion, this tagine is beautifully and authentically styled. Although original tagines were made of clay, this cast model cooks beautifully and can be used on stove top or in the oven. The unusual funnel shape helps to maintain moisture in the food, and blends the flavors into mouthwateriing dishes. I love the quality of Le Creuset and am very happy to add this tagine to my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, smaller than anticipated Jan. 31 2010
By Jose Luis Novoa - Published on Amazon.com

The tagine works as advertised. We've had three meals and all were excellent. On the "con" side, heat transfers to the lid and it can get quite hot. Size is an issue when trying to cook for more than three or four people. Other than that, we are very pleased with the results. The Tagine was delivered in just a few days, which was a pleasant surprise.
