Clay Herb Pot – Directions for Use

Due to the nature of the Clay Herb Pot, it requires special care.

Please follow these simple steps to ensure the life of your Clay Herb Pot:

1) Before first use, immerse the entire pot in cold water for 30 minutes to over night. This will allow the pot to absorb moisture before it is set on the flame or burner and will help avoid cracking (only required for first time use).

2) Wipe outside of the pot dry (extremely important).

3) Place Herbs in pot.

4) Add the specified amount of water.

5) Set pot over flame or burner.

6) Simmer herbs as instructed by your herbalist.

Caution :

Always use hand mitt or towel when handling lid or pot handle (can get extremely hot).

Always face spout toward wall or back of stove to avoid hot steam.

Never place pot on cold surface (allow to cool on burner or stove).

Never immerse hot pot in water.

Never place wet pot over flame or burner.

Care :

Wash with detergent and water. Do not place in dishwasher.

Extreme hot and cold temperatures will crack the pot!

  1. I love the idea of using a clay pot but do you even have to worry that your herbs are absorbing into the clay and could affect the herbs you use next time?

  2. I found this herb cooker on amazon, and was wondering if anyone uses one or knows if it works all the same?
