Marmite pot

A marmite (pronounced mar-meet) is a traditional crockery casserole vessel found in France. It is famed for its "pot-belly" shape.[citation needed]

According to the French culinary reference work Le Répertoire de la Cuisine, a marmite can be either a stock pot or "a French pot with lid similar to a casserole with two finger-grips on each side."[1]

It lends its name to Marmite, a British savoury spread and to Marmitako, a Basque tuna dish.
