What to Look for When Purchasing a Clay Pot?

Both glazed and unglazed models are available, but unglazed is the way to go. It may avoid any potential problems of lead in the pot which can leach into the food and cause serious health problems. Another reason is that when the clay is glazed, the pores are blocked. This defeats the whole idea of cooking in clay. Some models have a glazing only on the bottom. This prevents sticking and makes clean up easier. Glazing on the bottom only is a plus.

The top should be domed. Clay cooking involves steaming, and the vessel needs space for the steam to circulate. Expect the top to be close to double the height of the bottom. This makes it difficult to eyeball and determine the size needed. Be sure to look closely at the bottom portion to get a feel for the amount of food cooked for each size. Sizes vary from small garlic roasters up to models which will hold a Thanksgiving turkey. Unless you actually plan to cook a turkey or have a really big family, you probably do not need the largest size.
