The tajine comes from North Africa and thanks to the characteristic shape of its lid, it is historically the ideal utensil for those slow-cooked dishes full of flavor and seasoning; but do not be confused, cous cous, legumes, rice and even bread are other of the many options you have to cook in a tajine.

What makes ceramic cookware healthy?
When we cook with conventional pots and pans, many times without having the slightest idea, we are adding microplastics, heavy metals and other toxins to our food.
Cocottes, saucepans and other kitchen utensils, made only with natural ceramics, are the healthiest and most eﬃcient option when preparing food. The ceramic of our utensils is made entirely from top quality natural raw materials. Due to the fact that the material is subjected to very high temperatures, it is very resistant and, therefore, it does not react with food or migrate heavy metals such as cadmium or lead, or chemicals that are harmful to health such as PFOA, PTFE, and other substances. You will notice it in the taste and in your well-being.
On which heat sources can I use the Kuoko ceramic tajines?
You can use the tajines on absolutely any type of heat source: induction, microwave, gas cooker, ceramic hob, oven, and directly over a fire such as a barbecue or natural charcoal grill.
In addition to all the heat sources, there are no limits to the options of the toxic-free ceramic tajines. You can put them in the fridge to store the food that you have not finished, on the table to serve, or even freeze it! Of course, be careful with sudden temperature changes and do not put a tajine directly from the freezer on the stove.
What tajine size is the most suitable for you?
We know that sometimes choosing the size of a cookware can be diﬃcult. Don't worry, we make it easy for you! Approximately and of course depending on how hungry one may be, we recommend using the 25cm tajine when cooking for 3 or 4 people; and the 29.5cm one for 5 or 6 people.
What's so special about tajines?
The tajines became popular due to their ability to soften and cook those meats that are not normally so tender. To this day, tajines are equally ideal for making stews or other slow-cooked dishes. The characteristic shape of its lid retains all the steam from cooking, which rises to the top of the lid, condenses, and returns through the walls back to the ingredients. This cyclical process enhances and elevates all the flavors while cooking, achieving a juicy, tender result with a touch of caramel.
How to prepare a tajine?
The trick to make sure the protein doesn't stick and burn at the bottom is as simple as layering high-water vegetables like onion, celery or carrots as a cushion for the meat or fish. Then add more vegetables on the sides and a splash of extra virgin olive oil with another splash of water or, for that extra flavor, broth. This will blend with the spices and natural juices from the
ingredients you've put into your tajine, creating a flavorful little juice. Adjust the amount of water or broth based on the consistency you want.
