a cracked pot

eatdrinkmanwoman's picture

I have a pot that is unglazed on the outside and glazed inside. I have cracked it ever so slightly. It leaks a bit. Is there a way that this can be repaired? Also, al I did was put it on the gas stove top and light the flame putting it on low immediately. Should that have caused this cracK? or was that a really silly thing to do?

I think it is history. It was probably already cracked. BUT is it made to be put on a flame?

Some clay pots can be used on the stove top and some can't, but any can crack, and I'm afraid that yours is done for.

If you get another, do read the directions carefully, but as I said, this just happens sometimes, even if the pot is designed for stovetop use.

Exactly. That is one reason I'll never get the Emile Henry pot--too expensive to heat too hot!!

They are pretty though, aren't they? I don't have one, either.

If you mean the fireproof versions- the ovals, round ovens, tajines- I use them interchangeably with Creuset. They're fine on high heat for browning.
