Although our Indian Clay Yogurt Pots can be used for a variety of other uses, they are specifically made to make yogurt. They can be used in the oven, microwave, stovetop, or direct fire. They also serve as a storing and serving vessel and can go directly to the table for an authentic presentation.
As with any clay or glass cookware, the pieces must not be submitted to drastic changes in temperature. The pieces should be allowed to adjust slowly to heat, letting the pieces slowly heat up until they are hot, either on the stove or in the oven. Likewise, you should also allow the pieces to adjust to room temperature before washing or storing them, and never sit a hot pot on a cold surface such as granite or tile.
Although a Yogurt Pot should be maintained extremely clean for making yogurt, the pots should never be put in a dishwasher as they can absorb the detergent flavor. Instead, they should be thoroughly hand-washed with mild soap avoiding strongly scented soaps which can flavor the clay. Never use metal or abrasive cleaners as it can scratch and damage the inside of the pieces, using wooden utensils instead.
