2 Quart Bean Pot
2 Quart Bean Pot

We love the thick, sturdy feel of this little bean pot. Made by an artisan near Cairo, the hand rubbed terra cotta finish gives the outside a rustic, natural feel, while the interior is glazed with a dark, glassy, brown called Assalie. The Egyptian word Assalie means honey or molasses and describes exactly the color and feel of this glaze.

This pot is ideal for about a pound of beans, depending on the variety. Just dump in some very good quality, freshly dried beans (We love Rancho Gordo’s!), maybe a clove or two of garlic, or some onion, cover with at least two inches of water and cook away. Then, use those cooked beans in any number of dishes from salads to soups, or even solo with a pinch of salt. Simple and delicious!

Terra Cotta/Assalie Brown

6” x 8½” H (15 cm x 21.5 cm). Opening 4” (10 cm). Because our pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.

Did You Know Lima and pinto beans were first cultivated in Mexico and Peru more than 5,000 years ago.



Features & Benefits

  • 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

  • Stovetop, oven and microwave safe. For gas cooktops, may use diffuser or lowest heat setting. For electric cooktops, please use only with a diffuser.
  • 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 pot cold from the refrigerator and place it directly on a stovetop or 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.

Shop Heat Diffusers   Do you need a heat diffuser?
A heat diffuser is required for electric cooktops and recommended for gas cooktops to reduce the risk of thermal shock and cracking the pot. We carry a variety if you need one.
