      The directions on mine say to "soak in tepid water for a least one hour. Then
      take out of water and dry off with a towel. Pot is ready for cooking". It also
      has all of the same warnings associated with clay pot cooking. Wonderful in the
      oven. I broke the only one I took to a camping event. It got broken in transit!
      We had the use of an iron dutch oven someone gratefully was not using for
      Saturday nights feast.

      With clay pigs or other non-glazed pottery used for cooking - I have seen people
      who use them all the time - especially those who use tajines they soak the pot
      in water and then use it to cook. Again do not use it over a naked flame.

      My two cents worth.
