Use And Care Of Your Mexican Bean Pot (Olla)

Do not store food in the pot and do not use it for “acidy foods” such as citrus drinks. Please handle the pot with care as it is breakable.  You can use the pot over a gas flame but never when it is empty. Do not place your pot directly on an electric stove or element, use a diffuser between the pot and the element.   The pot can be used in the oven. After each use wash by hand and dry. Never place your pot in a dish washing machine.

Seasoning:  Diana Kennedy suggests filling your pot to the top with water. Add a whole head of garlic and place over low heat until the water has evaporated.  Repeat the process with a new pot two times.
