Best dish on earth!! If you have a chance to go to Morocco, you definetely have a tagine there!! It's very worthy!!!

The cone shape causes the steam to reach the top and drip back down, sort of a self-basting/convection system. This way there's no need to open, stir or turn the tagine. If you make them all the time, you might want to get one, but you can get great (if not practically similar) results in a dutch oven, or heavy duty pan with lid.

YUM do you know if the cone shape structure makes the food cook any differently? I like Moroccan food and wonder if I should get one of those things or just keep using a pan with a lid.
