The Emile Henry Flame-Top Tagine is made with Emile Henry's innovative technology than enables ceramic to be used directly on a gas, electric or halogen stovetop without a diffuser and no fear of cracking or breaking. Flame-top cookware is also oven, broiler, and microwave safe and comes in richly colored and durable glazes that look great on the table. This tagine is ideal for making the succulent North African slow-braised dish, but is also ideal for any slow-roasted or simmered foods. The tagine lid has a unique shape, which allows the steam to circulate to keep the ingredients tender and moist. The Emile Henry Flame-Top Tagine is backed by a manufacturer's 10 year guarantee against defects. Made in France. Dishwasher safe.
