Tips & tricks

It is very important you let the pyrez cool down before you put it in the oven, if you don’t there is a RISK OF EXPLOSION. You can also simply add the pyrez to the oven before you preheat, thus allow the temperature to rise gradually, simply start timing the baking when the oven reaches 350 °F.
