The finds dating back to the Roman period prove that the usage of the earthen vessel goes back to ancient times. They appeared on the pages of old cook books, but we can also recall our great-grandparents praising the meals prepared in the oven and in earthen vessels.
This vessel has passed the test of all times. No wonder that it has been re-discovered by the modern cooking techniques.
The meat prepared in the vessel does not get dry and it keeps its own aroma and taste. The vegetables retain more of their vitamins and minerals than as if they were boiled.
In the Roman Vessel the meals are prepared without fats or oil, therefore it is healthier than using regular bowls. As a result, people on a diet can also enjoy the adventure of the different flavours.
The porous structure of the vessel allows it to absorb water. During preparation this humidity will produce steam inside the vessel.
