Looking for Unglazed Tagine Pots in Calgary

Does anyone know where I can find a traditional, unglazed clay, Moroccan tagine pot in Calgary? I’m not looking for the Le Creuset or Emile Henry versions.

  1. I know they exist. I found them a while ago somewhere. Try Hendrix. I think that's where they were.

      Thanks Shazam, I'll have a look there. I understand the unglazed pots deal with moisture differently than the fully glazed or iron versions.

    2. I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Homesense but they're hit or miss. Sears carries one by Maxwell&Williams which if I remember correctly is unglazed-their site says they're out of stock but there still may be some in stores. Otherwise I'd check with The Happy Cooker in Market Mall/Glenmore Landing:

        Thanks, they look like useful places to check out.

      2. I have never seen them in Calgary. I bought mine years ago in Vancouver. You can go online at Mine is glazed on the inside and unglazed on the outside, for use on gas range only. It has been a couple of months since I checked their website but I do not believe they have any in Canada.

          Thanks, it looks like a good site. There's another American website that appears to have very good tagines, but they don't ship to Canada.

              No I never did find unglazed ones in Calgary. Your best bet would be to order one online from Bram in Sonoma, CA, if they have any in:
              I have seen good cazuellas and other clay pots from Spain, Italy, and Portugal at Winners, however.
