1850 Stewpot

How to get the best results from your Stewpot 1850

You can use your Emile Henry Stewpot 1850 to simmer gently on the hob or in the oven, or to make tasty sauce based dishes.

Preparation and cooking

For the best results, always start on a low heat for the first 5 minutes.

Make sure there is always some liquid in your stewpot during cooking.

Your stewpot is very versatile: you can use it to make sauce based recipes, slow-cooked dishes with small pieces of meat (stews and casseroles) or large braised pieces. When simmering a slow-cooked dish, always use a low temperature.

A long cooking time on a low heat gives the best results. You can exceed the cooking time given in the recipes without any problem.

When cooking meat or simmering a casserole, the cooking juices will form on the bottom of the dish. This happens when the meat caramelizes, and adds a lot of flavour to your dish. Scrape the bottom of the dish with a wooden spoon and add to the sauce.

Instruction for use

Before using it for the first time, remove all the labels from the product, if necessary using a mild detergent, then clean carefully.

If you wish to pre-heat your dish directly on the stove top, you can add a little fat but do not heat an empty dish.

Our 1850 ceramic diffuses the heat so that very high temperatures are rarely necessary. For natural cooking, always start on a low heat for the first 5 minutes, then increase the heat gently (for induction, use the lowest setting).

Always use a burner the same size, or as near as possible, to the bottom of your dish. A burner which is too small or too big will not give the best results. This is even more important when cooking on induction, so that your hob detects the dish when it is placed on top.

When the dish is hot, do not place it in direct contact with anything cold, such as cold water or a cold surface. When you take it out of the oven, place it on a neutral surface, such as a wooden board or cloth.

If, when cleaning it, you find that some residue will not come off, soak it in hot water and white vinegar before placing in the dishwasher.


Our guarantee covers all product manufacturing or quality defects, when used under normal domestic conditions, and in accordance with the care and use instructions.
