CLEANING AND CARE:
Before use wash the dish in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. For most day to day cleaning, cool the dish for a few minutes then wash and dry as above, or wash in the dishwasher, allowing the full cycle to complete. Never leave a dish fully immersed in water. For removal of stubborn residues allow the dish to cool, fill with warm soapy water and allow it to soak for 10 - 20 minutes.
