Good source or unglazed stoneware/earthenware pot (with lid)?

litchick | Nov 30, 2006 03:22 AM

I'm looking for an *unglazed* clay, earthenware, or stoneware bowl or small pot, perferably with a lid, to make our homemade yogurt in. Unglazed containers are best for getting the right consistency in the yogurt, and I'm having a devil of a time finding the right vessel. Ideally, I'd love something made from the kind of stoneware The Pampered Chef sells . They used to have the perfect bowl, ages ago, but have long since discontinued it. I'm looking for something that holds anywhere from 4-8 cups volume.

I've looked into South American ceramic bakers like Tierra Negra and Pomaireware . Romertopf or Henry Watson would be great options, but are too big.

I could probably go without a lid if the vessel were a pretty standard round size, and I could just sub one of my spare pot lids. Obviously it's important that whatever vessel I choose is food safe (lead free and cadmium free).

So, wise wise chowhounds... any ideas?

many thanks!
