Cleaning: Just use hot water and a gentle scrub. For difficult areas to clean, first soak for a few minutes in hot water and then scrub. Store in ventilated areas after thoroughly dried.
AvoidingExtremeTemperatureChanges: Earthenware does not like extreme temperature changes. For example, do not take a cold pot from the refrigerator and place it directly on the stove-top or in an extremely hot oven; it may crack.
