Clay pots and humans are more alike than most think—they both have ancient origins and are generally stuffed with entire batches of cookies. Grow closer to terra-cotta relatives with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward terra-cotta cookware online at Terra Allegra Imports, LLC.
Harnessing the heat-retention talents of clay from Liguria, Italy, Terra Allegra Imports' lightweight pots and pans can cook comestibles efficiently in ovens, stoves, grills, firepits, microwaves, and underground lava chambers. Nestle lasagna within the glowy-orange confines of an 8"x5" oval baking pan ($32.98) or let a batch of tomato sauce burble beneath the lid of a 2-cup saucepan ($32.99). Cookware prices range from $18.98 for a fondue-warming bowl to $99.98 for a 4.5-quart saucepan with lid. The vessels' jewel-like colors and glassy finishes sparkle when set out to serve on a dinner table where they'll keep comestibles warm long after the main course has disappeared into guests' bellies. Afterward, casserole encrustations scrub away easily from their nonstick, dishwasher-safe surfaces, so you can escape clean-up duty early to catch Julia Child marathons on TV.
The owners, a duo of avid culinarians raised on their Italian families' home-cooked cuisine, personally respond to all customer queries, complaints, and song-and-dance routines. Shipping is not included with this Groupon.
