How to Use and Maintain Glazed Terra Cotta?

Hello,

I just bought this glazed terra cotta casserole from Crate and Barrel
http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family....

Description:
Inspired by traditional European bakeware, our bright blue pieces add a rustic touch to baking and serving. Each piece is high-fired terra cotta with a glowing glaze.

High-fired terra cotta with bright blue glaze
Dishwasher-, microwave- and oven-safe
Made in Portugal

But I'm wondering now how do I maintain and use it? There are no details that came with it, other than the above. I've read about pizza stones before and making sure that you warm it in the oven and don't take it out until its cool down with the oven. So there are no extreme changes in temperature. Is this the same with this casserole dish?

Also - any yummy recipe ideas are welcome so I can try my new toy! :

Thanks all!
