Chicken Piccata, Boston Baked Beans, New England Corned Beef Dinner from your microwave! Preparing delicious meals in your Romertopf clay baker using your microwave provides the superb Romertopf results without heating up your kitchen! Tougher cuts of meat become fork tender, fish remains moist and delicate, poultry is always succulent and vegetables achieve peak flavor and texture while retaining nutritious vitamins and minerals. Written with German clay bakers in mind, specifically Romertopf and Schlemmertopf (now discontinued), this cookbook has 64 pages providing a variety of easy, delicious microwave recipes along with cooking tips, guides and helpful information.
Includes recipes for beef, chicken, pork, veal, lamb, fish, soups, rice and grains, vegetables, and even desserts!
Before every use, soak the clay baker lid for 15 minutes in water. If you are short on time, holding the lid under running cold water for about 30 seconds is sufficient for the pores to hold water.

Always place your baker in a cold oven.
Set the oven temperature after the clay baker has been placed in cold oven to allow the baker to heat up gradually. Most recipes can be prepared at an oven temperature of around 375-500 degrees Fahrenheit. Generally, lower temperatures (between 375-425 degrees Fahrenheit) are ideal for meals requiring a long cooking time, while higher temperatures (425 and up) are for meals that require a short cooking time.
Go relax while your clay baker prepares your meal to perfection! (optional, but highly recommended!)
Do not subject your clay baker to extreme temperature changes such as putting in cold water or on a cold surface (such as marble) straight from the oven. Place the clay baker on a hot pad or wooden cutting board to avoid drastic temperature changes.
Romertopf Clay Bakers are designed for traditional and convection oven use and are microwave safe as well, however they are not for use on an open flame, stovetop, grill, wood stoves or wood-fired ovens.
