This was purchased for me as an anniversary gift. I followed all the curing directions upon arrival. I only used it 2 times or so on special occasions and it started leaking. I contacted uncommon goods and they replaced it no problem about a year later. (Fantastic customer service) I received the 2nd one and I have the same leaking issue. I didn't bother contacting them again as I feel I am losing the battle. I have the other pieces of the set as well which I have never had an issue with. They are absolutely gorgeous I'm just disappointed that I have a beautiful piece of art that was expensive sitting in a cabinet that can't be used but I also feel bad throwing it out.
A very beautiful and functional piece to use for cooking and serving. Keeps food warm for a very long time. It cleans easily, but needs to be hand washed. Easily will become an heirloom.
