Mexican Terra Cotta Small Sauce Bowl — Set of 2

These clay bowls from Hidalgo, Mexico, are made from traditional terra cotta that has a beautiful rustic look. Each piece is handcrafted by specialized artisans, who use local clay and hand-polish the dishes using volcanic rock. With a capacity of roughly 2 ounces, they're not only great for serving sauces and dressings but also useful in the kitchen when measuring out ingredients during prep work. We like to take advantage of the microwave-safe material to melt butter for recipes. Keep a bowl handy near the stove for a pinch of salt while you're cooking, or keep your set at the table as a neat alternative to salt and pepper shakers. Not only will they add an attractive, authentic touch to your table, the cazuelas are also certified food-safe, whereas many other brands of clay cookware are made with lead.
