This is the small size of our oval cazuelas. I can be use for enchiladas, casseroles, lasagna and baked desserts.
Cazuelas are kiln fired at 2000° and are brittle when new. They should be soaked in water for six hours prior to use for the first time. They must be immersed in water rather than filled with water as that can cause the glaze to craze. If you live in a very dry climate you may want to resoak occasionally. Once their moisture content is restored, they can be used.
BECAUSE OF ITS LONG SHAPE WE RECOMMEND IT FOR OVEN AND MICROWAVE USE ONLY. NOT SUITABLE FOR STOVE TOP.
Excellent for oven to table presentation.
They may be washed in the dishwasher if they are place so the rims do not bang against another dish as this may cause chipping. The Cazuelas are durable if given minimum care & not subjected to abrupt temperature changes.
