Japanese Ceramic Care

Tableware is no different to most other possessions in life - look after it and it’ll last.

The majority of our ceramics are microwave and dishwasher safe, however there are some important things to remember: 

Don’t use in the 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, it can cause things to crack

Don’t drop the tableware, it can break! Plates and floors aren't friends


The spectacular glazes that look like cracked glass on the surface require slightly more care than our regular products, e.g. the Sky Blue collection

These glazes are not microwave-safe as the heat from a microwave can open the cracks of the glaze, making your product vulnerable to food/oil stains and nasty bacteria

They are also not dishwasher-safe, unless you’re a careful stacker and use a gentle cycle… these glazes are a bit more fragile than others and prefer hand washing with a mild detergent at a warm temperature

Don’t soak – too much water for too long can cause mould to appear due to excessive water absorption
