Found 19th Feb 2015
Purple tagine, £5. Don't think I've seen one that cheap before. Loads of them on the shelves in the kitchen section and one stands by the entrance. Out of stock/discontinued online.

No receipt as I didn't buy one. Will probably end up regretting it.

If it's of decent construction I would recommend it - so easy to make a nice tagine and leave on the lowest possible flame on hob everything is yummy and melts in the mouth after 1.5-2 hrs barely cooking .. I just bung veg in and make a spice mix roasting dry in another pan .. Mix in with a bit of water and cover veg.. Put root veg at bottom and stuff that cooks quick on top... Easy

They seemed pretty solid, but I am not really sure how they could be made wrong. That is very enabling that does sound very easy

It was delicious

If you want recipe of how I made this - just say - and there are loads of good tutorials on youtube these days it's a good time for learning. The most work with tagine is checking once every 15 minutes lol not too much chopping as you can keep chunks pretty largish. Keep the temprature low on the pot and don't change it's temperature rapidly or it will crack..

PS I'm lazy check after 15 minutes, then come back an hour later or more...

Looks lovely btw

I happen to be in Marrakech as I write. The ones that can go on the hob have an adjustable metal rim (30Dh/£2 for 20cm diameter). £5 is an excellent price for London. Heat added.

That's really interesting to know about the metal rim, thanks How does that work? Does it allow it to expand and contract?

I feel even better about the price now too, going to pick one up tomorrow

Well, I missed out in the end, there were none left! There had them in 3 different places yesterday and they were all gone.

Just to prove they were there though:

No thanks. Looks Awful.

wtf is this used for ????

Slow cooking.

The tagine pot is a traditional clay pot used in Morocco and other places.

The design means steam rises into the conical cover and runs down so that a) no loss of water b) flavour is intensified.

You cook on extremely low heat (the design also retains heat) and cook for longer periods .. "slow cooking".

The results are quite different to any other cooking technique.

In the dish above for example each ingredient (kitty sorry for no recipe as yet - it's mushroom, sweet pepper, chestnut mushroom, aubergine and asparagus) retains it's own flavour whilst taking on the complexity of all the flavours in the pot and the spice blend.

You really have to try it to appreciate the difference.

You CAN use a normal pot to slow cook, but these pots are the best for this type of cooking.

£5 is a great deal.. they generally go for £15+... and are well worth it at that price.

Hi .. Will post later - stay subbed to thread will post when I get chance (with pics) its really so easy...

Yes it's couscous.. simply added boiled water, a pinch of tumeric and salt, sat for 5 minutes...

Not had my tagine out this year yet must make one. Not sure the one above looks to tasty though, no offence Jamie. Looks to British for my liking!!

I also use mine in the oven as it says not hob safe.

The bigger the tagine the better, they soon fill up, ionce adding meat on the bone to all your veggies, plus liquids.

This really is a great deal. you can make some lovely dishes in these that just don't come out as good in "normal" ovenware. I rarely see any on a good offer, and this really is an unusually good price.

Need to buy one!! This reminded me of the Lamb Tagine I had after climbing the Atlas Mountain!! yummmmmm!!

Should really be used with bottom heat for full affect. Then you get the cooling at the top which encourages the tastes to come back down into the dish. Use a hob heat diffuser to help prevent cracking.

It has a little imperfection in the glaze on inside of the base (the white spot). It's slightly annoying, but I don't think it will affect the use of it it. It is glazed in that spot, just not as thickly. Couldn't have seen that when I bought it without taking it out of the packaging.
