Clay Herb Pot

Due to the nature of Clay Herb Pots, they require special care.  IMG_1183

Please follow these simple steps to ensure the life of your Clay Herb Pot:

1) Before first use, immerse the entire pot in cold water for 30 minutes to over night. This will allow the pot to absorb moisture before it is set on the flame or burner and will help avoid cracking (only required for first time use).

2) Wipe outside of the pot dry (extremely important).

3) Place Herbs in pot.

4) Add the specified amount of water.

5) Set pot over flame or burner.

6) Simmer herbs as instructed by your herbalist.

Caution :

  • Always use hand mitt or towel when handling lid or pot handle (can get extremely hot).
  • Always face spout toward wall or back of stove to avoid hot steam.
  • Never place pot on cold surface (allow to cool on burner or stove).
  • Never immerse hot pot in water.
  • Never place wet pot over flame or burner.

Care :

Wash with detergent and water. Do not place in dishwasher.

Extreme hot and cold temperatures will crack the pot!

    When shopping for one of these pots, what questions should I ask the supplier (thinking of buying one at an artist village when I return to NC) about the glazing? I am concerned about heavy metals and such!!
