First of all, let me clarify that Schlemmertopf (pronounced S KLEMERTOPH) can be used in the microwave, contrary to what some research on the web (ex from eZine articles), will tell you.  In fact, Barbara Harris has a book on Cook In Clay The Microwave Way, that you can find in our eBay store.

Everyone wants to eat well and stay slim.  There are so many fabricated products on the market - grills and all sorts of appliances, that come with so many detachable parts that are time consuming to use and cumbersome to properly clean. Worse still, most manufactured appliances are deliberately released onto the market in some sort of periodic fashion so that there is always supposedly another functionality that yours does not have, or requires that you consistently buy some kind of disposable part to maintain it.  Finally they are mostly made to last only so long, so that you can keep companies in business. 

So how did people cook and stay healthy back in the day when we did not have all these appliances? With natural quality materials.  With the original Glazed Schlemmertopf by Scheurich-Keramik meals can be prepared without the addition of fats or oils.  All liquids, flavor, nutrients and vitamins are retained and food cooks in their natural juices, and you can make gourmet meals without babysitting the oven or microwave.

The addition of a light glaze on the bottom of the cooking pot offers increased advantages to cooking in clay.  To begin with, it is more sanitary than as unglazed utensil, as food particles, odors and flavors are not absorbed into the pot.  The Glazed Schlemmertopf is easy to clean, and there is no bacteria buildup, no worry about mold, no staining or problems with food sticking. You can cook and serve in the Glazed Schlemmertopf, and as log as you keep it covered, your food will stay hot for a very long time.  The Schlemmertopf is suitable for ovens and microwaves up to 500 degrees celcius.  There are no special cleaning instructions

Considering the the value you would be getting from the Glazed Schlemm ertopf, the initial cost is small. You can work miracles with everyday recipes, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and desserts and intrigue those around you as well.

The Glazed Schlemmertopf comes in small, medium and large and turkey sizes as shown in the photos and are accompanied by an invaluable cookbook.  We stock all sizes - just email, check our  eBay Store , or visit
