A note about...
(the “kryptonite” of Super Strong Stoneware)
Thermal shock occurs when an object is exposed to changes in temperature that are either too drastic or too rapid. Large, wide pottery pieces can be subject to cracking from thermal shock but a few simple precautions will keep your stoneware strong and durable for many years of use:
·Even, indirect heat is the key. Ovens are ideal, a stovetop burner is not.
·Heating (or cooling) on an open rack or grate allows even temperature distribution.
·Spread contents evenly across wide pieces when baking.
·Cold cupboards? Allow your piece to reach room temperature or pre-warm with tap water before putting in the oven.
