A tagine pot is a type of earthenware pot native to North African culture. They are slow cookers with round bases and low sides that are used in ovens and on stovetops to make foods like meaty stews.
Tagine pots have a dual role in which they are used for cooking as well as for serving food at the table; for this reason, some tagine are designed as decorative serving dishes specifically made to be put on tables.
Sometimes called “tajine,” these pots traditionally feature a conical lid that gives it its iconic appearance. These heavy, cone-shaped lids help the slow-cooking process by trapping the steam inside and allowing it to trickle back down into the pot, creating dishes that are moist and full of concentrated flavors.
Tagine pots come in four different forms that each have their own characteristics:
