I work with high-quality stoneware clay that I glaze-fire at 1250 Celsius degrees making my ceramics strong and durable. Each piece is food and dishwasher-safe.*
*You should however be aware that dishwashers are quite harsh when cleaning. They use extremely hot water and abrasive, possibly corrosive chemicals to get the dried up dirt/food off your dishes. This means that your ceramic items will get quite a battering in the dishwasher, so it is not the best way to care for them. I however put all my plates at home to the dishwasher and they are doing fine :) 

The best way to prolong the life of your ceramics is to:

  • handle with care,

  • never place to hot oven or on open fire,

  • change temperatures (cold to hot or hot to cold) gradually, 

  • keep away from temperature extremes (for example, taking a stoneware plate out of the refrigerator and then heating it in the microwave is not a good idea)

  • wash by hand (instead of dishwasher)
