This hand crafted stoneware is dishwasher and microwave safe. It can be used in a warm oven. We recommend using eco-safe, non-harsh detergents - no Cascade!
For clean-up which occasionally needs something stronger than a sponge, always use a plastic scrubby. Some grades of stainless steel and aluminum can leave metal marks on our dinnerware. This is not a flaw, the surface of the pottery is harder than the metal used on it. To remove any of these marks, we suggest using "Bar Keeps Friend".
Large stacks of plates, etc. can be heavy. We store those, and less frequently used pieces with felt or fabric between them.
Variations in glaze color and finish exemplify the hands on process used to create this pottery. These characteristics should not be considered flaws, but reflect the inherent beauty and unique quality of each piece.
To extend the life of your earthenware, we recommend hand-washing. If you wish to put it in the dishwasher, load so no piece touches another. Use low energy, cool dry, cycle with mild detergent - no Cascade!
If these instructions have made you nervous, don't be. We wish to give you as much information as possible, in hopes these extra care instructions will extend the life of your beautiful pottery.
