The Cataplana is a cookware pot with a difference. Conceived as a revolution in cookware, this copper and tin pan is a version of the Dutch slow cooker, combining the benefits of the tagine with a modern pressure cooker. A hallmark of traditional cooking, the Cataplana has been used by Portuguese hunters in the 20th century. It has been influenced by North African cooking and Arabic influences extending to about 500 years back.
The Cataplana, a strong pan with double clam shells with dual clamps, is made of tin and copper.
