Care Guide

Storing your Penzo tableware:
To avoid scratching, when plates are stacked together they should not be slid out from a stack - always lift them out carefully.

Washing by hand:
We suggest that, as a matter of hygiene, you always wash any new purchases of tableware before first use, in a mild solution of liquid detergent.
Washing-up is one of the occasions when tableware can be damaged if it is not properly handled during both washing and draining. Even in water, the glazed surfaces can become scratched if rubbed against each other with any force. So avoid putting too many plates into the water at any one time.
Normal dishwashing products used in hand-hot water will not harm your Penzo tableware. Tea and coffee stains can be removed with any tea/coffee stain remover. Abrasives and harsh scourers should not be used on your Penzo tableware.

Washing Penzo tableware in a dishwasher:
Follow these simple guidelines, and you can be totally confident that your Penzo tableware can be washed in an automatic dishwasher with no adverse effects to its appearance and durability.

* Load the washer so that pieces do not touch each other, to avoid the risk of scratching, and do not overload.
* Follow the manufacturer's instructions on quantity of detergent to be used.
* As soon as the wash water has drained away, there should be an immediate rinse cycle to flush away deposits of detergent which will form a film if allowed to dry on the tableware.

Hard water:
In hard water areas, deposits may form on your tableware in time if the water is allowed to dry on the ware. These soluble deposits can easily be removed with a dilute acid such as vinegar.

Microwave ovens:
Your Penzo tableware can be used in a microwave oven.

Freezers:
Penzo tableware can safely be used in freezers. Care should, however, be taken when re-heating frozen food. No matter how strong the tableware, sudden changes of temperature (e.g. taking from the freezer and placing directly into a hot oven) are likely to cause thermal-shock which will damage the ware.

Warming your Penzo tableware:
It is perfectly safe to warm your tableware gradually and evenly to 100c. However, it should never be exposed to direct heat from a naked flame or to rapid changes of temperature.
