How to Season the Clay Cooking Pots?

Seasoning Instructions:

Step 1: Simply submerge pot in water for 15 to 24 Hours

Step 2: Clean the pot after soaked in water with coconut scrubber, Make the pot dry in sunlight for one hour.  

Step 3: Once pot dried, apply the cooking oil all around and inside the pot gently. 

Step 4: Once applied oil and make it dry in sunlight for 2 hrs.

Finally clean the pot using coconut scrubber and the pot is ready for your amazing recipes. 

Cooking Instructions:

After the first seasoning use it as often as possible (preferably every day) for a few times cooking 'wet' recipes. Use it at least 4-5 times in this way before trying to make dry recipes. 'Wet' recipes include making rice, quinoa, vegetable soups, stews, lentils, pasta, steaming vegetables etc. This helps the pot to shrink slightly and become 'fully seasoned'.

1. On stove top --When cooking for the first few times, start on 'low' then increase to medium in 5-7 minutes. Once seasoned and used a few times, you can start on medium heat.

2. In the Oven -- Recommended max temperature is 450 Degrees Fahrenheit. Start in a cold oven or 250 D F and increase to the desired temperature after 5-10 minutes.

The more it’s used the faster it’ll cook your food, all on medium heat or less!

Care Instructions:

Wooden spoons go well with our cookware.

Getting black on the Bottom. With use, the bottom of your pot will become black or gray. This will NOT affect the functioning. It happens as a result of a normal oxidation process as would happen with any 100% organic matter like wood, stone etc. (when heat is applied).

Avoid dry or oil saute till pot is Fully Seasoned. You can do this after the pots are fully seasoned.

Avoid sudden, extreme temperature changes. Example: If taking out of the fridge, let it come to room temperature before putting it on the stove for reheating and vice-versa.

Cleaning and Storage Instructions:

Hand washing recommended. Get the pot wet on all sides, sprinkle baking soda, coconut scrub and rinse off. Wipe it with a cotton towel/rag and put it away to dry.

If you've accidentally overcooked or burned food, pour some warm water in the pot, sprinkle baking soda and let it sit for 10 minutes, scrub - food would come off the bottom easily, rinse and dry.

Store with the lid open and in a well-ventilated place. Avoid storing in closed or damp areas (like inside cabinets, especially in humid regions). Let the pot dry thoroughly before storing, it's also a good idea to dry your pots on the stove top at the lowest setting for 5-10 minutes or until the rim is warm to touch.
