These handmade Mexican talavera cazuelas (handled bowls) from Dolores Hidalgo, are one of our most popular items. We offer these beautifully painted and shaped cazuelas in two sizes. A cazuela is commonly used in Mexico, in every state, to cook sauces and moles, often over an open flame. This one is not for that. However, it is food safe and could be used in the oven or microwave. Or it could be used as a small salad bowl or for side dishes. We recommend hand washing. The patterns are varied but most have a mixture of cobalt blue, orange, yellow and red so the patterns mix and match with other talavera pieces extremely well.
