Seasoning a Ginpo Claypot
Claypots are pourous and can stains, odor, or mold.
Please season the claypot with the instructions below before use:
1. Fill the clay pot with clean water (about 80% full), and bring the water to boil. When the water is boiling, lower the heat, put wheat flour mixed with water into the pot, and mix it well.
2. Simmer over a low heat for about five minutes, turn off the heat, and leave the pot as it is until it has cooled down.
3. Wash and clean the pot, then dry it before use.
Care and maintenace
After each use, please dry well and keep the claypot pot in a dry space to prevent mold or mildew.
For the first 5 uses, please avoid leaving food and ingredients inside the pot after cooking. (This will help to season your pot for many years of use.)
Please also avoid using curry, kimchi or similar seasoned foods for the first 5 times of use. (This will help to prevent discoloration and odors from lingering in the future.)
Avoid soaking the earthen pot in detergent water.
Wash and rinse only.
