Handmade in Colombia, this black clay soup pot is natural and unglazed. Use it on the stove top or in the oven, or even the microwave. The pot keeps such an even heat that it cooks beans to a velvety texture. Soups seem to gain flavor too. And it is handsome enough to bring straight from the stove or oven to the table. From $49.95, at www.mytoque.com.
