Taking care of your pottery will keep it in good condition for years to come.

Oven Use – Stoneware can tolerate both cold and hot temperatures, but will break if subjected to them too quickly. Don't set a hot piece of stoneware on a hard or cold surface without placing a cloth underneath it for protection. Never place your Fire Garden pottery on a hot burner.

Microwave Use – Because the clay and firing temperature are compatible you can heat food and beverages in your pottery in the microwave. Don’t overheat though.

Refrigeration - Before refrigerating food be sure to let the piece cool slowly. In addition, don't heat a stoneware piece directly from the refrigerator or freezer; let the contents warm somewhat.

Washing – You can wash your pottery in the dishwasher or by hand. To keep your pottery like new wash it by hand and avoid scratching with hard bristled brushes or sharp objects. Wait until the item is fully cooled or thawed before placing it in water of a suitable temperature.
