- Please completely dry the pot before use. When you first fill the pot with water, you may notice that water is seeping through the pot. Japanese Earthenware is made this way to avoid cracking while heating. To eliminate this problem, please follow the instructions below:
- Cook porridge or heat water mixed with cornstarch in the pot until it boils.
- Leave the porridge or water with water in the pot and allow it to cool completely for 1 - 2 hours.
- Remove the contents.
- Allow the earthenware to air dry overnight.
- Gently and quickly wash.
