    Care Instructions

    To maintain the beauty and longevity of your Banko ware pot, follow these care instructions:

    • Hand Wash Only: Gently hand wash the pot with warm water and a mild detergent. Avoid using abrasive sponges or harsh cleaning agents that could damage the glaze or the delicate hand-painted design.
    • Avoid Sudden Temperature Changes: Do not expose the pot to sudden changes in temperature, such as placing it directly from the stove into cold water. This can cause thermal shock and potentially crack the pot.
    • Dry Thoroughly: After washing, dry the pot thoroughly with a soft cloth to prevent moisture from affecting the clay.
    • Storage: Store the pot in a dry place. If stacking multiple ceramic items, place a soft cloth or paper towel between them to avoid scratches.
    • Use with Care: While the pot is durable, handle it with care to avoid dropping or striking it against hard surfaces, which could cause chipping or cracking.
