Products

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MICROWAVE AND DISHWASHER SAFE?

Please check the Product Care Guidelines. Our fine bone china items are dishwasher & microwave safe. We recommend when loading the dishwasher, the items are not touching each other, this prevent any risk of friction, not to overload or exceed a temperature of 40ºC (104ºF) when washing fine bone china in the dishwasher and use only the ‘gentle,’ ‘short wash’ or ‘china and crystal’ cycle. Use a very gentle detergent; some of the eco-detergents are a better choice than the stronger dishwashing powders and tablets. As soon as the wash water has drained away, there should be an immediate rinse cycle to flush away deposits of detergent, which will form a film if allowed to dry on the fine bone china. We do always advise, however, that it is best to wash fine bone china items by hand straight away and that scouring pads are not used.
