Caring for your pottery
Congratulations on your Glosters Pottery purchase we hope you enjoy your new pieces for years to come.
With that in mind we’ve put together a little guide to caring for your new pieces.
1- Can I put my tableware in the dishwasher?
Absolutely, all our tableware is safe in the dishwasher, this includes our plates and bowls of all kinds including our pouring & mixing bowls.
2- Can I put my tableware in the microwave?
Yes, unless you have a metallic glaze in which case that a no.
3- Do the dishes mark with cutlery?
Occasionally you might see some marking on glazes from cutlery, we recommend using ‘bar keepers friend’ to remove these marks.
Mugs, Muglets, Mugsters & Beakers-
1- Are they dishwasher proof?
We pride ourselves on our drinking vessels and we really hope you love them as much as we do, we recommend hand washing these, but rest assured if they do end up in the dishwasher every now and again they will be okay. But as a general rule to prolong their life we really recommend taking the time to hand wash them.
2- What about microwaving?
Again, it shouldn’t be a problem, but to prolong the life of your mug it might be best to heat your hot chocolate milk in a jug and pour it in afterwards.
Jugs & Vases
1- Are your vases water proof?
They are indeed, each vase is glazed in a transparent glaze inside which means they can hold water and keep your flowers looking fresh.
2- How should I clean a jug or vase?
We recommend hand washing both our vases and milk jugs.
