Using a tagine on the hob

    I have been given a Tunisian tagine for Christmas, the leaflet with it says it can be used on the hob and I have seen them used on a small gas stove in Morocco. My question is, can it be used on a normal gas cooker or would I need to use a diffuser mat? If so where can I get one?

    Hi, Soulmate!
    We use a wok base, which is one of those tallish, circular things that you put under woks. It works a treat under our tagine.
    We've bought quite a few daft things on our travels but we use our tagine a lot. It's a really useful addition to our kitchen. So don't stick it on a top shelf and forget about it - you'll find it becomes a trusted friend that you'll want to use over and over again.

    Hi!
    Thanks, I'll look for one of those. I bought a beautiful tagine in Fez about 10 years ago but a coach driver threw it off the bus when I was getting off at home and the base broke. I have used it in the oven with an ovenproof dish for a base but it's a bit awkard to handle. I'll try the wok base idea with the new one.

    You're obviously not a newcomer to tagines!

    I keep meaning to cook a duck and quince tagine like the one we ate at a friend's house in Marrakesh. It was wonderful. If I find a recipe, I'll post it on here.
