These arrived from Paelleros safely wrapped in miles of bubble wrap - there was no way these terracotta tapas dishes could have been damaged. I was not aware that terracotta has to be soaked for 4 hours before first use, in order to reabsorb some moisture after firing. But hey it's good to learn new things and doing that prep will extend their life.
The dishes are a great size for tapas, putting out nibbles, dips and other party foods. They look great, are easy to clean and the colour is fantastic. I'll be buying some other larger pots from them in the near future.
I am really pleased with these dishes. They need a little TLC before you can start to use them, but follow the instructions and they work beautifully. Very good value too, much cheaper than anywhere I could find. They are perfect for tapas or hot starters.
These little dishes are just great. I used them to make little christmas gifts filled with goodies and wrapped with cellophane. They look lovely. The dishes arrived the next day. Wonderful fast service. Totally recommend
