Explanation on the operation of the oven

The Emile Henry ceramic chicken oven is specially designed to achieve a perfect roast chicken . How do you get it? The oven plays with two aspects: on the one hand, its shape, which generates a circulation of steam inside that cooks the chicken to perfection; and in parallel its bottom, in which it has some grooves or undulations that help the fat to be isolated from the chicken. The result: crispy skin and juicy, tender meat.
