Soapstone Cook Pots make great hand-me-downs since they last forever with a little care. This is why many homes here in the south, have Kalchattis (Soapstone Cook Pots) that have been passed down by our grandmothers.
Soapstone Cook pots are deep and crafted to have high edges to make them suitable for cooking tamarind-based gravies like Sambar, Rasam, Kara Kozhambu, Vathal Kuzhambu, etc. Gravies that use tomatoes work well in this too. The alkalinity of the soapstone interacts and sweetens the acidity in tamarind and tomatoes, leaving your gravy with a flavor like no other.
Each of these Cook pots is made manually by our rural artisans and hence each piece is unique. They are seasoned for three weeks using Organic Castor oil, Organic Sesame Oil, Turmeric, and Rice water so that you can immediately start using them on purchase.
Note: Each of our utensils comes with an instruction card on maintenance and long-term care.
