Ceramics by nature are fragile and are best when treated gently. Here are a few tips to make the most out of your new purchase! Avoid taps and bumps with other dishware in the dishwasher, cupboards and when handling them in the sink. This can create tiny fractures that grow over time with repeated heat and moisture exposure and can result in larger cracks or handles falling off. Another tip, avoid subjecting your ceramics to big temperature changes *aka thermal shock. For example, give your ceramics time to cool after the dishwasher before filling with a cold beverage. Or vice versa, if your ceramics are very cold, run them under room temperature water before filling with hot.
All glazes used are food safe. Each piece is dishwasher and microwave safe, although I do recommend gently hand washing them when possible, as it is generally easier on the ceramic.
