Ceramic

Ceramic conducts heat as good as glass and is a great option to bake dishes evenly, and we at Ellementry highly promote usage of these items. These are great for savoury dishes, quick pieces of bread, and muffins.

A hand-finished ceramic baking dish can add magic to your cooking. It goes well with microwave or oven and can even be used in a dishwasher. This peach life collection of 1500 ml capacity might be just what you need to cook tasty food beautifully.

Ceramic is non-porous and usually easy to clean. Before you clean allow the bakeware to cool down completely. After every use, you can clean it with warm soapy water and dish cloth or soft sponge. If there are burnt foods, soak the pan for 30 minutes in hot water.

For deep cleaning leave the bakeware in hot soapy water for a while and wash with a non-abrasive pad. Sprinkle some baking soda on the stains and leave for 20 minutes. Scrub thoroughly to remove the stains and rinse using warm water. 

Store ceramic at room temperature as sudden changes in temperature can cause it to crack.

Terracotta

Terracotta works excellent for cooking on prolonged heat over long periods. The heat gets distributed evenly to produce the perfect baked dishes. It is entirely safe for use in the oven. The terracotta baking dish of 900 ml capacity from Ellementry gives the ideal base for long cooking. Culture, tradition, and design unite for bringing this beautiful terracotta baking dish.

Before the first use, remember to soak it overnight. It is both oven and microwave friendly and can also be used with induction.

Terracotta bakeware should be hand washed carefully. Harsh detergents and high temperatures can damage the seasoning of the vessels. Once you remove the terracotta bakeware from the oven, let it cool before cleaning. For general cleaning, you can soak the vessel in warm water and scrub with an abrasive pad. If the odours are strong, fill it with warm water and add two tablespoons of baking soda. Scrub after 15 minutes.

For deep cleaning, soak it overnight in water baking soda mix. It is recommended to add three tablespoons baking soda in 1 litre of hot water. Wash using a non-metallic scrubbing pad or soft bristle brush. For better results, sprinkle some salt during cleaning. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. 

Ensure that it is totally dry before storing to avoid moulds. Store it without the lid, so that there is plenty of air circulation to prevent any moulds forms forming. If you find any moulds, you can clean it by sprinkling baking soda and rinsing with warm water.

Do not leave those beautiful things lying around ugly. Following proper care and maintenance, a routine is essential to give a long life to those beautiful bakewares in your kitchen — visit ellementry.com and select food safe and environmentally friendly products to ensure that you eat only healthy food.
