Can I cook in this pot on direct heat? No, for oven use only. My clay has not been tested for stove top use and may crack. Other potters make flameware.
Can I put the BreadPot in the dishwasher? You can, but there is a risk… Even though these pots are vitrified, they still have some absorption. If the pot is soaked and then heated up, the water in the walls will steam; the pot will weaken and sometime later a crack may appear. I prefer to wipe it out after it cools, occasionally washing it in the sink is okay.

What recipe is inscribed in the lid? The average BreadPot is sized for a 3 cup loaf. A white flour bread will fill the space. For whole grains, it will be smaller. I have gone up to 4.5C with my rye recipe. Some of the pots have a recipe inscribed using sgraffito technique: 3 C Flour, 1/2 t yeast, 1 t salt, 1.5 C water.
