4 qt. Soup/Stew Pot
4 qt. Soup/Stew Pot

Fashioned from the volcanic soil of Tuscany it was named for, the Vulcania terra cotta pot conducts heat and cooks wonderfully. Think bollito misto or "boiled dinner," or even the French pot-au-feu for this traditional Italian soup/stew pot.

Vulcania has been making beautiful earthenware in Italy since 1911. Because clay pots get better and stronger with use, they have been passed down for generations in Italy and become treasured family pieces. Enjoy this pot as a classic standby in your kitchen for years to come.

This earthenware soup pot looks the way a traditional soup pot should. Glazed on the inside with a clear terra cotta color and on the outside with a beautiful cream, brown, or red; it will blend with almost any table or kitchen décor. The terra cotta pot is glazed on the inside and partially unglazed on the outside, it will acquire a beautiful darkened patina with use over time.

The smallest of three generous sizes, this one serves 4 to 6 people.

Opening 7" x 9" H (18 cm x 21 cm)

Did You Know   In Italy, they call a large stew or soup pot a pentola. It's also a general term for a pot but it usually refers to a big pot with a round belly.

Features & Benefits

  • Made with two large side handles for ease of lifting.
  • Handmade natural earthenware from Italy since 1911.
  • 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.
