Important action Before FIRST USE
Prior to first use of any of the Alecook refractory cookware, we would recommend curing it first in order to seal it before it is used for cooking your favourite dishes. Below we provide two options for curing, choose the one that suits you.
Fill the dish / pot with water to the halfway point of the vessel, adding a little oil (4 – 6 tablespoons). Place in an oven (any type) on a low heat for 2 hours, making sure that the water does not completely evaporate (top up as necessary).
Place the cookware, including any lids, in a suitably large container which allows you to completely submerge it in normal tap water. Leave for 24 hours and after the 24 hours are up, remove and let it dry naturally. Once dry, it is ready for use.
