I ordered a 2qt VitaClay crockpot. It seems some reviewers of the brand had complaints of the crocks cracking while others had no such issues. From my research on clay, it seems almost everywhere says it needs to be "seasoned" before using or it will be dry and prone to breaking more easily. I cannot find on the VitaClay website where they specifically say to "season" the crock, but I figure it can't hurt to try an extra step to hopefully get longer use out of it. Am I along the right lines here in what should be done to prep a new, unglazed clay crock?
-Wash and soak overnight in water
-Lightly coat in oil
-Put in a cold oven and turn on to 300degrees for a couple hours
-Re-apply light coat of oil after each use
