We call traditional saucepans that vary in size, and which are usually enamelled ceramic, but they maintain their original clay color.
The interior of this type of “jars” is topped by a series of holes (usually five) that communicate the bottom of the bowl directly with the inner pipe of the water pipe.
They are also known as Egyptian pots. This saucepan is usually the one included when we buy our traditional water pipe,and is recommended for dry tobacco, such as Nahkla.
You can use other types of wetter tobacco, but we don’t recommend it. We can find it in a multitude of sizes, colors and finishes.Las tradicionales cazoletas egipcias.
