We were cooking in the first tajine and all of the sudden we heard a pop and believe it or not FIRE! Because the oil and water dripped out, it caught fire. The tajine had split in half. Regardless of what happened with the first one, we decided to purchase a second one. Sadly the second one didn't last more than four months and it broke in half again while cooking.
This is a great tajine for taste and we absolutely loved how our food tasted. This was the main reason we decided to purchase a second one. We had purchased other tajines in the past online and none can compare to this one in taste. For taste 5 stars!!!
Unfortunately the first time she tried to use it it cracked almost immediately after starting cooking. I did follow the fairly involved seasoning instructions to the letter, and we used a diffuser, and the gas stove was set on the lowest setting. Nonetheless, the base cracked in half and sent food and pieces of Tagine everywhere.
The company did offer to send a replacement when we contacted them, but it freaked out my wife when it cracked so she really didn't want another one. Amazon refunded it.
In hindsight I might have gone for a costlier (less ornamental) tangine which would be less sensitive to high temps. This is an issue for me because of my glass cooktop. However, I have found my ways of working around this. I start my dish in a saucepan and then move it into the tangine for the duration of the cook time. I also tend to put it in the oven instead of slow cooking on my range though I have successfully used it on my range set on a very low heat (no diffuser as my cooktop warns against it).
The dishes I've created using this tangine have been spectacularly cooked and I am pleased with the performance of it. I followed the seasoning instructions found on the Le Souk webpage.
The reason why I have given it only three stars is that it did not come with the promised seasoning instructions or the recipe booklet, since this was a surprise my son had no idea what to do with it! There was a sticker that said refer to enclosed seasoning instructions yet no instructions! My son was able to look it up. Caution...do not use the tangine without seasoning it or it will crack!
I contacted amazon in hopes of getting the missing booklet and seasoning instructions. Tangine cooking is very specific and I wanted to avoid having to also pay 17.00 for the cookbook. One of the reasons I actually ordered the Le Souk is because it said a recipe booklet was included. Amazon said that I would have to return the whole item. Impossible, partly because of the sheer size and also because my son had already gone ahead and seasoned the item. Amazon graciously offered me a 15% credit on the purchase. Not enough to pay for a cookbook but a nice gesture.
So buyer beware to a certain degree..be prepared that the tangine may not come with recipe booklet or seasoning instructions!
