Using my Romatoff

Sorry for my mis-spelling. I’m challenged that way. I got a clay baker and am using it for the first time. the directions say to soak it in water for 10 min. Is that necessary for baking bread? Can I use it either way (wet or dry)? How does it effect the bread (biggest question)?

Jeff: If you read it closely I believe it only says to soak the LID…I DO soak the lid for baking bread.
