Variations in wear can result from differences in the temperature at which ceramics are fired, and also from variations in the clay, or "earth." We recommend avoiding the heat setting on dishwashers and find that hand washing works best for these items. We advise against soaking in the sink or dramatic swings in temperature, such as going from very hot to very cold. The microwave is not recommended.
