As most dishware pieces are made with porcelain or stoneware clay they are considered safe to place in the dishwasher unless otherwise stated on the individual product page. However to safeguard their appearance and ensure a lifetime of use we do recommend hand washing.
As with all ceramic dishware, it is susceptible to thermal shock. Thermal shock occurs with sudden temperature change, exposing pieces to heat and then to cold and vice versa.
Matt or Satin glazes may mark or stain from use. Unlike a Gloss glaze, Matt or Satin glazed surfaces are not completely smooth even though they may look and feel like they are. They are slightly porous by nature and will absorb colours from certain foods or retain cutlery marks. These marks are easily removed by using a fabric scouring cloth or water and baking soda. Please do not use metal-based scouring cloths as these may produce more marks!
As for the micro cracks, those are one of my favourite features of a glaze. However, not all glazes will produce this feature.
When possible, its best to hand wash than using the dishwasher.
Try not to expose pieces to extreme heat changes.
Clean Matt or Satin glazed pieces with a fabric scouring cloth or baking soda.
