Crimean Tatar national dishes are very diverse. There are 5 types of cauldrons. Among them are asma kazan, qapaqli kazan, eki tutquc kazan, tash kazan and Meriem ana kazan. They all used to be made of copper. Two types — asma kazan and qapaqli kazan — were in every home, since they were used in everyday cooking, collector Abdul Vakhab Seytkhalilov writes in the collection «Traditional culture of Crimean Tatars».
