If you love making jambalaya, you need to make it at home with IMUSA’s caldero.
This easy, one pot hybrid is our go-to cookware choice not only because of its versatility being able to be used on the stove and in the oven but because of its beautiful design, which sticks out prominently in our cookware. It’s perfect for preparing rice, chicken, soup, stew and roasts.
The nonstick surface requires minimal oil or butter when cooking and is even easier to clean. When cooking rice-based dishes with the caldero, simply place the cover with silicone rim over the pot to seal it shut while the glass lid releases the steam through a top vent.
When the dish has been prepared, take the lid off by handling the cool-touch silicone knob. We love the IMUSA Orange Silicone Rim Non-Stick Caldero, which adds just the right amount of color to our kitchen.
