To maintain the integrity and longevity of your Corzana Oval Cazuela, pay attention to its care instructions. After each use, clean it with mild soap and warm water, avoiding any harsh detergents or scouring pads. Do not expose the cazuela to sudden temperature changes, let it cool down to room temperature before washing or storing. When storing, choose a cool, dry place and avoid stacking other items on top of it, to circumvent any accidental damage. Also, remember that before its first use, a one-time curing process is necessary to brace the cazuela for high-heat cooking. This prepping ensures the cazuela’s durability and high performance throughout its use.
