Q: Can I put my Breakfast Set into the dishwasher?
A: Porcelain enamel is handcrafted from commercial grade steel thus it’s very durable. And while these plates, cups, bowls and serving pieces are dishwasher safe, we suggest you avoid harsh detergents and give the pieces plenty of space so they don’t rub together during the cycle. Hand washing your enamelware, on the other hand, with a mild soap and soft cloth or sponge will prolong the life of your dishes and keep the color looking new for years to come.

Q: Can I heat up my leftovers in my Enamelware Bowls in the microwave?

A: Since our enamelware starts out as a flat sheet of steel, the answer to this one is no! Metal and microwaves do not play well together!
