Care Instructions

Remember: these plates can get hot! Handle with care when serving your desserts. To keep your plates in good shape, hand wash with a non-abrasive sponge and gentle dish detergent. Abrasive sponges and sharp knives will scratch the hand-painted decoration. To protect the hand-painted designs, dishwasher cleaning is also not recommended. Nota bene: never put your enamel plates in the microwave.
