Care Of Ceramics


Not Safe for Microwave or Conventional Oven Use Avoid High Temperatures: Due to its characteristic thickness and earthenware porosity, ceramic dinnerware may be damaged by exposure to extremely hot temperatures. Our dinnerware, like any other Deruta's product, are "Serving" pieces and they are NOT meant to be used for cooking or re-heating. Protect Against Chips and Cracks Majolica is low-fired earthenware and chips more easily than vitreous-china dinnerware. Careful hand wash is recommended although Geribi's dinnerware items are electric dish-washing safe. When using electric dishwashing, it is recommended to load your ceramic dinnerware far apart to avoid touching each other during the high pressure dish-washing. Characteristics of Majolica and low fired Ceramics With repeated use, Majolica has a tendency to "craze" (forming minuscule lines in the glazing). The crazing is the nature of Majolica, and has no significant effect on the ceramic item. Food Safe All Geribi's Dinnerware and Tabletop Products are Guaranteed to be 100% Food Safe.
