These charming dishes are handmade in France in the Manufacture de Digoin ceramics factory in Burgundy, founded in 1875. The stoneware clay, prepared entirely inside the manufacturer’s workshop, comes from natural mineral materials originating from France. The pottery is fired at 1250°C.
Stoneware dishes are perfect for baking foods as well as for storing. For example pitchers made of stoneware store cold and keep drinks chilled longer than pitchers made out of other materials. Stoneware dishes also prevent odors transmitting, therefore distilleries and producers of preserved products have long chosen the bottles and jars of Manufacture de Digoin to store and preserve their products.
The manufacturer recommends placing the oven dish in a cold oven and then turning oven on, maximum temperature is 220°C. When taking the hot oven dish out from the oven, watch out for large changes in temperature. Don’t place it onto a cold counter but place a coaster underneath.
