You need to soak it for an hour submerged in water before using.That is why I gave mine up.
The only clay bakers I have are the Rompertof ones and those only have to be soaked for 15 minutes before using. This one may be different, though.

The first time I used it I soaked it for an hour or so. For each use after that first time it is for 15 minutes.

I learned this the hard way because the first Rompertof I bought was bought from a thrift store. It had never been used but had no box and no directions. I knew it was a clay pot but didn't know you had to soak it so the first time I used it to bake a chicken it turned out terrible so I stopped using it. Then, when I was covering a trade show on kitchen appliances they had a booth and I was able to get the info booklet that comes with the clay pot. So, then I soaked it for over an hour and baked a chicken and it came out heavenly! I now have about 4 different sizes of those clay pots.
