    "Litton Simmering Pot" (clay baking pot, HELP!!)

    Thu Apr 27, 2006 11:47 am Groupie
    I bought this pot at a garage sale for .50 cents thinking ...What a buy! I'll use this alot!!...well 10 + years later...I still haven't used it!! icon_lol.gif There was no box nor instructions and I've always been afraid of it cracking and breaking in the oven and a GALLON of casserole spilling out and burning onto the bottom of my oven!!! icon_lol.gif It looks like it's never been used (maybe the seller had the same nightmarish vision!!!), so how do I use it?? Does it need to be "seasoned" first?? The inside has a shiny coating, the outside is natural. Do you slowly warm it in the oven first?? I have NO CLUE at all of how to use this!! Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks so much!! icon_biggrin.gif (It also looks like it's maybe a 2-3 quart one with a lid. Oval and deep. Litton/Made in Germany.)

    Does it look like this?


    If so, that says it is a Microwave pot.

    Still searching for you>...

    I have one. They're wonderful for meatloaf, roasted chicken, name it.

    The most important thing to remember is that you must soak the pieces in cold water for at least 15 minutes prior to putting food in them. not preheat your oven.

    For instance, I soak mine while I mix up my meatloaf, shake the water out of it, add the mixture, cover & put it in the cold oven, and set it at 425 degrees and let it go for an hour or so.

    Don't be afraid of it! icon_lol.gif Enjoy!

    This is about all I can find. Everything else on Google is mostly ebay auctions.

    the Litton Company of Minneapolis, Minn. is currently marketing a device known as a "Simmer Pot" which is a porous clay pot with a water absorbent clay lid which is soaked in water for 30 minutes to overnight. After soaking the lid, the food item is placed within the closed clay pot and cooked.

    Thanks Sandra and Vicky! I also found this, a different manufacturer, but the directions should work! It looks identical except for the name.

    Posting that in case someone else also could use the Directions/Care. This site has recipes, too! icon_biggrin.gif

    I think I'm going to go ahead and try it!! I'll soak it for 30 minutes in cold water, then add my ingredients. Then put it into the cold oven. Turn the heat to LOW for 10 minutes, then up to the temp needed to bake the casserole....I'm sure everything will work fine...but cross your li'l fingers for me, please!!!!!!! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif I'll let ya know how it turns out! Thanks again!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif
