HOW TO CARE FOR GG COLLECTION CERAMICS

CERAMICS
The ceramic pieces are made of stoneware fired at extremely high temperatures to create harder, chip resistant clay, which provides an even heat for baking.
Glazes are combined with the stoneware to create a unique finish. The occasional pinhole and color variations are considered normal and natural to the ceramists and lend themselves to the handcrafted old world look of The GG Collection.
With age tiny lines called crazing may form in the glaze. This is a unique characteristic of stoneware and does not affect the durability or safety. All dinnerware and baking dishes meet or exceed FDA and Prop 65 requirements.
CARE
Hand wash oversized pieces in mild, non-abrasive dishwashing soap and soft cloth.
Dinnerware and serving pieces may be safely washed in a dishwasher using the low energy/air cycle. Avoid over-loading the dishwasher.
Bakers may be used in most microwaves and conventional ovens up to 400-425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Do not place ceramics with attached metal in the oven.
Do not use casserole lids in the oven.
Do not take dishes from the refrigerator and place directly in a heated oven.
Do not place ceramics in the freezer.
