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.
