High quality porcelain needs high quality caring to best stand the test of time.
White porcelain and porcelain with decoration can be washed in a dishwasher. Gold and platinum decorations however require greater care when washing. An incorrect washing process with excessive water temperature or use of too much detergent may attack the decoration and glaze. Be selective when choosing the right detergent and follow the suggested amount. Use a rinsing agent.
Carefully rinse the china ware upon loading the dishwasher. Never wash chinaware and cutlery in the same basket or let steel and chinaware come into contact with one another. Metal marks cannot be removed. Let the china ware dry until it is cold before putting it away. To remove any discoloration, soak the chinaware with a suitable soaking agent. Metal can rub off from flatware with soft steel, and such marks cannot be removed with detergents. Flatware is recommended with a steel quality of 18/8 or 18/10.
Glaze wear and tear arises mainly from stacking and emptying the dishwasher. By using a rinse aid, you can reduce friction between the plates which will reduce the wear from stacking. Glaze wear on cups arises especially because they vibrate against one another in the dishwasher.
All Figgjo china ware may be safely used in ovens up to 300˚C, but must be given a slow and steady rise and fall in temperature. Gold and platinum decorated china ware must not be used in the microwave.
