Chicken Brick

Does anyone on here have one of these and is it worth having? Apart from roasts what else can you do in it? Is it any good for tandoori?
TIA. x

Chicken Brick

I borrowed one from a friend but found the chicken I cooked in it tasted very "bricky", it was very tender but there was am underlying taste of brick....sorry, perhaps it was just the one she had bought......she did say I could have it and I am sure if it she thought it was that good would have kept it for herself, wouldn't she ??

We had one years ago - the last time they were fashionable. They are very difficult to clean and rapidly become quite disgusting.

In their original incarnation (ie centuries ago) I suspect they may have been semi-disposable but the ones that I have seen recently are priced out of that market.

we love ours and use it all the time. never had any trouble with food tasting of brick and ours is not disgusting, just discoloured, we clean it throughly with very hot water after each use and it's still fine. Often add wine before putting in oven along with onions/garlic, makes delish gravy and the meat/poultry is always succulent. Had a large one made by a local potter to fit large joints etc. also one for our niece when she got married she uses it alot too. The one item i would replace if it ever got broken. foxy xx

Chicken Brick

I have had one for many years and have never had a "bricky" taste. I use mine for cooking game, chickens, ducks and stews etc. and joints. As someone has said cooking in wine makes delicious gravy. Were I to break it, I would replace it with a good quality of similar type. I am sorry I cannot remember where I got it, or it's make, it was that long ago.

Ours came from Habitat but I doubt they still carry them.

They used to be made by the Brannam Pottery in Barnstaple. Not sure if they still do them. If they do they might be able to suggest a stockist convenient to you

IKEA had one in recently one but it looked pretty rough and flimsy.

Amazon sell a Romertopf version which looks quite sturdy

Chicken Brick Supplier

I've been looking at the Weston Mill Pottery site and they have two sizes of chicken bricks available as well as loads of other lovely terracotta bits and pieces. Prices are reasonable and the site is worth a look. They are UK based but will ship outside the UK.
