Product Care  

Tableware is no different to most other possessions in life – look after it right and it’ll last and last and last (except maybe that washing machine you bought at the ‘scratch ‘n’ dent’ clearance last year…).  Anyway, you get the picture.  Be kind and remember:

  • Don’t use it in an oven
  • Don’t use overly abrasive cleaners – save the scourer for your pots
  • Don’t “temperature shock” your tableware, i.e. switch rapidly between cold and hot temperatures, like running out from a sauna and jumping in an ice bath; it can cause things to crack (things that should never have a crack in them)
  • Don’t drop stuff, it can break – plates and floors aren’t best mates
 
Crackle Glazes

Crackle glazes – the spectacular glazes that look like cracked glass on the surface - require slightly more care than our regular products. Check out these tips:

  • Don’t use in a microwave. Heat generated in a microwave can open the cracks of the glaze – making your product vulnerable to food/oil stains and nasty bacteria
  • Don’t use in a dishwasher unless you’re a careful stacker and use a gentle cycle… Crackle glazes are a bit more fragile than other glazes and prefer hand washing with a mild detergent at a warm temperature – don’t we all?
  • Don’t soak – too much water for too long (i.e. 3 days in the sink while everyone ignores the growing pile of unwashed dishes) can cause mould to appear due to excessive water absorption
