1. Tazhin is specially designed in such a way as to keep the temperature well, therefore, after it has warmed up, you should adhere to the average temperature and, if possible, do not open the lid during cooking.

2. Due to the design of the lid, also, almost without exception, all dishes should be “rested” with the lid closed for about 10-15 minutes. During this time, your dish will have time to absorb the aromas and acquire a unique, unique taste.
