Turkish Terracotta Testi Pot - Slow Cook, Break, and Serve!

Want to liven up your next dinner party? Slow cook stews, kebabs, and other side dishes inside these cool Faik's Turkish Terracotta Testi Pots and then safely break the top off the pot at the table and serve up your now sure to be impressed guests. These unique handmade terracotta pots allow foods inside to cook slowly in their own flavorful juices since little to no moisture escapes the cooking process. Just fill them up, place on the grill or in the oven, tap along the score line to crack off the top with ease, and then serve. Since they are unglazed, water absorbs a bit into the walls of the pot which helps prevent burning and means very minimal oil is needed as well. After dinner, the pots can be repurposed as flower pots. Reusable Testi pots (not as fun!) and jumbo-sized Testi pots are also available. Check out the video below to see a similar Turkish Testi pot being opened.
