Dating back hundreds of years, this sauté dish is one of the oldest tierra negra designs. Traditionally it would have been used for cooking over an open fire. In modern times it can be used on the hob as well as in the oven and the microwave. It comes in six sizes and this smaller size measures 29 cm across the handles and 19 cm from side to side. The unusual handles require considerable skill to make and are called orejas (pronounced o-ray’-has) in Spanish, which means “ears”. You can usually tell who made the dish just from the shape of the handles; they are almost a signature.

All of the tierra negra® cookware can be used over any direct source of heat, including an open fire. Cooks love it because it enhances the flavour of the food.

It requires amazing skill to mould these pieces by hand, especially the larger dishes which maybe up to 40 cm in length. No two items are the same and variations in size will occur.

As each piece is hand crafted, some variation in appearance and size will occur. Please click here for further details.


dimensions N.B. the height is measured up to the handles not to the rim.
