Turkish Terracotta Testi Pot for Slow Cooking
Who wants to do a little slow cooking in my Turkish Terracotta Testi Pot? Maybe a nice cream of mushroom soup from the Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes cookbook? Teehee. Teeheehee.
"Testi Pot" is an unfortunate name for a terrific cooking tool from Faik's. Unique, rustic, and sure to get a ton of Ooohs and Ahhhs at your next dinner party, these Turkish terracotta slow cookers are made from heat- and fire-resistant Cappadocian clay that locks in moisture, and allows steam buildup to cook the food you put inside to juicy, tender perfection. Place Testi Pots in the oven, on your grill, or in a campfire to make your next meal, and then enjoy the real wow factor when they come out.
Traditional Testi Pots are single-use for cooking, because when it comes time to serve, you break them to unleash the tasty dish inside. Faik's original slow cookers break safely along a score line for food consumption, and if you hate to throw away a good piece of terracotta, you can repurpose the bottoms as flower pots.
Faik's has also developed reusable Testi Pots, molded from a stronger clay, and without the score line, so you can enjoy more than one cooking adventure with them.
Testi Pots come in single-portion 50-ounce and jumbo 85-ounce sizes. If you like the idea and look of clay cooking, but want to go slightly more modern in your approach, check out Bricknic modular cooking bricks.
