[Meaning] cracked, useless. [So called] from a ceramic item that breaks apart in the kilns/ovens.[1]

[1] = Photius pi1564 Theodoridis, though the headword there is purirragh/s rather than the Suda's purorragh/s. Theodoridis suggests that the Suda's version is a deliberate correction based on the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 933; see next note.
[2] From commentary on Aristophanes, Acharnians 933, where the neuter singular form of the headword appears (while the lemma used here is plural, as in the subsequent quotation from Cratinus).
[3] Cratinus fr. 253 Kock, 273 K.-A.
[4] Also from commentary to Aristophanes; see n. 2 above.
