For those who aren’t familiar with the term, crazing is what happens to stoneware when the ceramic material and glaze expand and contract at different rates. Many things can affect crazing: the age of the product, the number of times it’s been exposed to heating and cooling cycles, water being absorbed in places where there’s no glaze (for example, on the bottom, where it sits in the kiln), and others.
However, if it happens after your 30-day return period has ended, we will send you a new piece for free under the terms of the warranty, and you pay only the Sh fee. SEASONAL AUTO-DELIVERY FAQs By signing up for Auto-Delivery, you lock in your order price for the three-month auto-delivery period.
All temptations ® products are tested for lead safety by accredited independent laboratories before they are shipped to the U.S. When cooking on temptations Limit trays, it’s important to make sure the food is evenly distributed; otherwise “hot spots” may occur that might damage the stoneware.
For example, if you’re cooking only a few servings, choose a smaller Limit tray so the food covers it more fully and evenly, instead of a larger Limit tray, which would leave more surface area exposed and cause stress to the stoneware. Stoneware absorbs water in places where there’s no glaze (for example, on the bottom, where it sits in the kiln).
No, do not take a temptations ® baker out of a hot oven or microwave and immerse in water; let the stoneware come to room temperature before washing. Temptations ® tables storage covers are not designed to snap on, be air or water tight.
