Be very cautious at the same time as cooking for the primary time after seasoning.If you burn it then the burnt smell will hold throughout and could show in any meals cooked in that pot.Yes I ruined a brand new pot and needed to discard it so enjoy speaks So make any curries first not any dry gadgets to be on the safer side.

Do no longer warmness an empty pot.
Overheating the pot can also lead to cracks so its higher to keep low medium flame whilst cooking.
Also after cooking do now not pour water right now, the unexpected exchange in temperature may result in cracks.So watch for it to settle down for a while then soak in water after which wash.
