Established in 1857, Jars Ceramistes makes ultra-durable pieces for the kitchen and table, in distinct colours and shapes. They fire clay just once at the high temperature of 1280°C rather than the standard three times – an eco-friendly practice that results in hard-wearing ceramics that resist cracking, chipping and fading. They hold up to frequent microwave and dishwasher-use, even in professional kitchens. This Roaster from Jars' Cantine range features a two-tone white and greenish greay finish, where the white is matt and the colour is glossy. It is great for cooking dishes you want to take from oven to table, such as baked pasta and stuffed vegetables.
Why we love it
'Jars plates, bowls, dishes and cups aren't just beautiful. They are strong enough to withstand daily use in home or restaurant kitchens, maintaining their lustre after countless dishwasher cycles.'
About The Brand
Jars’ history spans more than 150 years. Founded by a potter named Pierre Jars, deeply guarded craft secrets have been passed down through generations to make out-of-the-ordinary ceramics and glazes in their factory in Anneyron, France. This know-how has earned Jars prestigious EPV (French Companies of Living Heritage) status.
Since nature is a constant source of inspiration for Jars, they take care to implement eco-friendly practices like:
- Firing their products only once at high heat, significantly reducing energy use
- Recycling water and china clay mixes, ensuring no pollutants extend to the factory’s surrounding areas
- Recycling exhaust heat from the kilns for use in the biscuit (clay) dryers
We love the soft, organic shapes of their Maguelone range, as well as the artfully ‘cracked’ glazes of their Tourron range.Shop Jars
