Caring for your Pottery

Avoid thermal shock

  • Never place pottery under a broiler, over direct flame or on the stove top.
  • Let pottery preheat with the oven.  You can take the chill off by filling with hot tap water before putting in a preheated oven or adding very hot liquids or food.
  • When taking pottery directly from the fridge let it warm up a little before placing in a hot oven or heating in the microwave.  Pottery can handle any oven temperature once it has warmed evenly.
  • Setting a hot dish on cold tile or counter top is another source of thermal shock.  Use a potholder, cork or wooden trivet.
