BEFORE FIRST USE

Before first use, soak the Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker in cold water for 30 minutes and before subsequent uses for 15-60 minutes. The length of time required for soaking depends on the type of meal being prepared in the Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker. A longer soaking time is recommended for dishes that require longer cooking times (such as beef).

CORRECT USAGE

Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker prepared with a meal ready to cook should be placed onto the bars of a cold oven and the oven heated up gradually to the desired cooking temperature.

Ideally, a fan oven should be used, but a combination of upper and lower ovens may also be employed. Using only lower or upper ovens is not recommended as the Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker will not heat up evenly. This can result in pressure forming inside it.

Ensure that any liquids added to the dish during cooking time are always hot. The hot Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker should be placed either on a wooden underplate or on a dry kitchen towel in order to provide protection from cracking due to the base suddenly cooling off.

The Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker can only be used in an oven. It cannot be used on a hob or above a naked flame.

CLEANING

Clean the Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker in plenty of hot water using a brush used only for this task. If traces of food remain on the walls of the baker, it should be pre-soaked in warm water to loosen up any baked-on crust. Using warm water will cause the pores to swell up, thus preventing soapy water from entering the pores and remaining there. After using a detergent, soak the Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker in clean warm water for a few minutes and then hold it under warm running water. This will loosen any detergent inside the pores.

Never use a cream cleaner to clean your Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker, because it will block the pores. Use a brush only.

Cracks might be visible on products that have a glazed inner surface. This is not a fault, in fact it is a feature from glaze that enables evaporation from the pores through the glazing to occur.

After several uses, or when a buildup of fat has occurred, the baker should be washed with hot water and vinegar, and then rinsed and dried out. This process rejuvenates the baker and makes it ready for use again.

The Pataki 1926 The Minimalist Clay Baker will absorb water into its porous structure which will automatically evaporate during cooking. Pores will also fill when washing and so the dish should be thoroughly dried before being stored in a well-ventilated place. Any remaining heat in the oven can be used to dry the baker.
