BENEFITS OF TERRACOTTA COOKING:
The first is that clay is porous. This means that moisture and heat circulate through the pot during cooking.The most unique thing about clay pot cooking is that you soak the pot in water before using it. Then, while cooking, the pot gradually releases stream. This cooks your food in a particularly moist way, and it means you can use less liquids and oils when cooking. Clay pots are also slightly alkaline, which will reduce the acidity of foods (such as tomato sauce) you make in it.
