Known as the original slow cooker, the Römertopf Clay Roaster from Germany makes healthy cooking easy and delicious. This simple, yet efficient, clay roaster seals in the juices and self-bastes while gently roasting for the most tender, juicy chicken, pork, beef, and vegetables you've ever tasted. And, because the Römertopf Clay Roaster is self-basting, no added oils or fats are needed for mouthwatering results. Made from high-quality clay, found only in German-made clay roasters, the clay bottom is glazed on the inside so it doesn’t absorb flavors and makes for easy cleanup, while the unglazed lid naturally attracts moisture into the cooking vessel. It’s oven safe up to 500° F and must be placed in a cold oven and allowed to come up to temperature to prevent cracking. Both the small (approx. 13½"x8¾"x6¾") and medium (approx. 15"x10½"x7¾") clay roasters are microwave safe and work great for baking bread, too. Recipe book included. Hand wash.

Best clay roaster on the market Love it ! If you follow the directions, the meat and vegetables are always moist and tender, never dries out even if you cook it too long. You must find the English version Romertoph cookbook online to truly understand how best to use this roaster. The pamphlet that comes with it from the Vermont Country store is inadequate.

So glad to be able to get the original Romertope In the 1972 I brought back the Romertopf clay cooker from Germany. I have used it for many years, and this Thanksgiving it broke while transporting it back from my daughter's home. I was devastated. The Vermont Country Store had the new version of the one I have cherished. It is the same size and the new one is glazed which makes clean-up much easier. I am thrilled to have been able to replace this cooker. The customer service I received was impeccable, and all in all it was a wonderful experience. December 22, 2014
Produces succulent results! I happened to purchase one of these years ago at a going-out-of business sale and have loved it since. My older model does not have the glazed bottom. I soak the roaster in water for 10min. before loading it - for extra moisture in the dry oven environment and clean it like stoneware. That is, I do not use detergent on on it, but scrape it with a non metal scraper and and scrub it with hot water and soapless non-metal pad. It has not retained odors/flavors. With use, the bottom has become non-stick like an iron skillet does. A glazed bottom is even better! October 18, 2013
