In a nutshell: This chestnut-coloured stoneware storage pot was a common sight in most French country kitchens and is perfect for storing all kinds of ingredients.
This traditional stoneware pot is called a 'Pot Beurre' and was widely used in France in the 18th and 19th centuries for storing homemade butter or as a duck confit pot. We use to store all kinds of ingredients, such as sea salt, rice, beans and pulses, in our kitchen.

We have sourced our impressive stoneware products from one of France's oldest surviving ceramic manufacturers in Burgundy. Founded in 1875, they still make the mustard pots for Maille and other familiar kitchen items, such as yoghurt pots, water jugs and terrine bowls. Using clay sourced in the Loire valley, Auvergne and Burgundy, the products are handmade by artisans. Fired at a very high temperature (1250°C) then fixed with some unique glazes which makes them non-porous, perfect for storing liquids and for cooking.
