)-- The form of the cataplana ensures that the steam from cooking the food is retained in the utensil, generating an increase in pressure and permitting cooking temperatures above 100°C. Its concave shape, together with the excellent thermal conductivity of copper, means that the heat is distributed more uniformly in its interior, thereby ensuring more even cooking of the food.
The Cataplana, that strangely unique Algarve culinary device, makes a worthwhile addition to any kitchen. Almost anything can be cooked in a cataplana, seafood, chicken, meat, fish, and vegetables as well as rice and pasta all of which can be seasoned with herbs to give a memorable meal.
Shaped like a clam with two domed halves, the pot seals in moisture like a Dutch oven, encouraging a steaming effect inside the vessel. The latches on the side lock the dome closed, emulating a pressure cooker.
The thickness of copper is superior to give more consistency and maximize the characteristics of copper, while in the interior we use tin.Copper Cookware has been the gold standard in cooking and the top choice among professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts for centuries.
To fit everyone's unique needs, Kataplanas is offering 8”, 9”, 10”, 11”, 12” and 14” inch size options. Kataplanas is available for pre-order on Kickstarter starting at €49.00.
