5 qt. Tian
5 qt. Tian

If you're looking for the perfect casserole dish to cook your cassoulet in, look no further. Hard to find outside of France, tians deliver a better outcome and make the effort and expense of preparing cassoulets worthwhile. Ours, with its well-proportioned wide opening to narrow base, helps you achieve the perfect balance between a creamy interior and a golden, bubbling crust. Holds a cassoulet for 6 to 8 people.

This beautiful piece has an unglazed traditional terra cotta finish on the outside and an assalie glaze on the inside for easy cleaning.

Opening 13¾" x 4¾" H (35 cm x 12 cm). Because our pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Did You Know   A tian is the traditional casserole dish used to make a cassoulet in the style of Toulouse, a village in the southwest of France.

Features & Benefits

  • Special terra cotta finish on the outside gives a natural unfinished look even though the clay is sealed.
  • Terra cotta clay high fired at 2,000°F for strength, durability and chip resistance.
  • All our pieces are completely handmade, natural earthenware. Minor imperfections add authenticity and charm, and are part of the piece.
  • Easy to clean, hand-applied glaze.
  • Lead and cadmium free.

Use & Care

  • For oven use. Not designed for the stovetop.
  • Microwave safe.
  • Clear ceramic glaze provides ease of cleaning.For difficult areas to clean, first soak for a few minutes in water, then scrub with a soft abrasive pad. Do not use metallic scouring pads.
  • Dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing to give the best care to your earthenware. See our section Clay Cooking 101 for detailed explanations and effects of soaps and detergents on earthenware.
  • Earthenware does not like extreme temperature changes. For example, do not take a baking dish cold from the refrigerator and place it directly in a hot oven; it may crack.
  • Before first use, please season. A complete explanation of this procedure is explained in detail in Clay Cooking 101.
