    Mapanggulo,

    Since I first ‘seasoned’ my dolsots 2 months ago, and noticed the cracks, I made bibimbap about a dozen times. I have to tell you – there is a definite crack, throughout EACH of the dolsots. I hope yours don’t have that crack.

    BUT, bibimbap is a relatively dry food, so it leaks very very very rarely. Maybe just once.

    I am cooking my bibimbap on the gas stovetop, not preheating the dolsots in the oven, and when I first ‘seasoned’ them, I did it on the stovetop as well, as those where the directions I had.

    All in all, the bibimbap is a great success, that I ordered two more dolsots. Hurray!

    Michael.

    Update:

    Once my two Dolsots cooled down, and upon closer inspection, I noticed that EACH dolsot has a VERY thin crack running the entire length of it, from side to side through the bottom.

    When filled with plain water, the dolsots would leak very very slowly. (When I heated them with water and salt they leaked rapidly).

    Is this normal? Is this crack something I can manage with? After all, Bibimbap is a fairly dry food, not a soup… It’s not supposed to leak from the bottom of the Dolsot…

    I purchased the dolsots here: http://www.koamart.com/shop/48-2427-asian_cookware-stone_bowl__medium.asp

    They say that “Minor “cracks” are only cosmetically damaged. The stone bowl itself is not defected”. Is that true? Or are my Dolsots defective?

    I live outside the States. Dolsots are IMPOSSIBLE to get in my country. I went through great pains getting those pieces here.. I hope I can still use them for my Bibimbap…

    What do you think?
