Product Description

La Chamba Care instructions

La Chamba cookware makes a beautiful gift and is ideal for cooking and serving. It can be used in the oven, in the microwave and on the stove top. 
Do not expose La Chamba sudden changes in temperature; such as moving it directly from the refrigerator to the oven, or placing it on a cold surface when it is hot. 

Before you use your La Chamba cookware for the first time, the piece should be filled three-quarters fill with water and place uncovered in an oven for 30 minutes at 200°C. This is to seal the cookware, although a complete seal is sometimes achieved only after it has been used several times for cooking. 
All cookware can be used over any direct source of heat, including an open fire. Over time you will notice changes in the colour if the pot from exposure to the heat source. 

After it has been seasoned, La Chamba cookware cleans easily. A quick soak and wipe down with a sponge or soft cloth is all you will need to clean it. 
The use of abrasive cleaners or placing in the dishwasher is not recommended, nor should you soak La Chamba for long periods of time. 

There are no toxins used in the production of La Chamba dishes. The pieces are not glazed and there is no lead found in the clay. The black finish comes from the firing process and the smooth finish of the pieces is the result of painstaking hand-burnishing with stones. 

Small imperfections in the finished and flecks of minerals in the clay are due to this handmade process and materials and is considered a characteristic of the pottery. Mica in the surface gives the cookware the ability to heat evenly and not crack under temperature changes. 
The lids are made for each individual piece, but are not always a perfect fit as the lid may shrink at a different rate from the pot durning firing. Dimesions may also vary slightly from pieces to pieces, as pieces are handmade.
