La Chamba Baking Dish
From the Andes of Colombia comes the unique, versatile traditional La Chamba cookware. Whether you are a gourmet chef or prefer simple fare, La Chamba will offer you years of cooking and serving pleasure. This South American cookware has been used for food preparation, cooking and eating for centuries, and the origins can be traced back over 700 years to vases and pitchers found in archaeological sites.
Prior to first use, clean with mild detergent, fill each piece 3/4 full with water and place in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. This allows La Chamba items to seal. Wooden utensils are recommended to prevent scratching. Whilst it is safe to wash La Chamba in the dishwasher, to maintain its natural patina we recommend hand washing. Harsh detergents and dishwashers can dull the surface of La Chamba.
