The Spanish straight sidded clay pot is very useful and versatile due to it's straight sides. It is great stews and beans. Lenght 14.5 (including the handles), Width 12.5, Height 8.5, Diameter 12.5 and Capacity 8qt (filled comfortably without overflowing). As the rest of our clay products from Pereruela, Spain, they are produced by our artisans the same way it has been done for thousands of years. Since the heavy clay can only be molded by hand, they give the pieces a unique look which identifies them as uniquely from Pereruela. They are glazed on the inside but only part way on the outside, which together with its "sandy" texture, gives it a very rustic look indeed and its character.
