Why own a potjie...
The potjie is the ultimate in alternative energy cooking because of its unique design. Its tall legs make it ideal for setting over the coals, and works just as well over a gas range or burner. Due to its unique shape, the potjie will absorb the maximum possible heat from the source, where other flat bottom pots will deflect unless perfectly level.
The 3 legs and round belly shape allows even heat distribution around the pot.
Maintains the liquids at the lowest point to prevent the food from burning
Domed lid allows for optimal internal heat circulation
The peripheral gutter on the lid can be used for coals.
The opposing side handles and thick wire lifter handles make handling easy.
The tall legs make it ideal for cooking directly over fire/coals or gas range.
Legless and flat bottom pots are also available.
Mini potjies are great for dips, condiments, sauces, potpourri, candle holders, and incense burners! A great gift idea!
Potjies come in a wide array of sizes and styles, are finely cast, and come fully pre-seasoned for your convenience.
