About Polish Pottery...

 

HOW IS IT MADE

Polish Pottery is hand-crafted and painted stoneware. It comes from the town of Boleslawiec, Poland, where the tradition of pottery dates back to the 14th century. This region is famous for its high-quality ceramic ware. Highly skilled artisans train for years learning to create this stunning pottery.  Polish pottery is fired at temperatures exceeding 2200 degrees Fahrenheit in gas and electric kilns.  Polish pottery is crafted from white stoneware found only in the Boleslawiec region of Poland. It is very dense in nature, allowing the pottery to be chip and crack resistant.  Lustrous glazes are applied to each dish, adding a beautiful shine, as well as preserving the vibrant colors.  It also makes cleaning a breeze.

 

IS IT SAFE FOR EVERYDAY USE

All of our pottery is crafted by experts and is tested for safety.  It exceeds FDA rules and regulations regarding food safety.  All glazes are lead and cadmium free.  These dishes are microwave, dishwasher, freezer, and oven safe up to 500 Degrees F.

 

HOW TO I CARE FOR MY POLISH POTTERY

Polish Pottery is dishwasher, microwave, oven, and freezer safe.  Our pottery distributes heat evenly for perfect baking, and it has a naturally non-stick surface for easy clean-up, making it very easy to care for.  While these pieces are extremely durable and intended for everyday use, they are pottery, so care should be used when heating or cooling each piece.  Avoid sharp temperature swings.  All pottery needs time to adjust to changing temperatures; therefore, allow it to reach room temperature prior to placing it in a hot or cold environment.  For example, if removing pottery from a cold environment such as a refrigerator or freezer, allow the piece to reach room temperature before placing it in the oven.  The recommendation is the same when removing pottery from a hot environment to a cold one.  Always allow the pottery to reach room temperature before exposing it to extreme environments.  It is also recommended that the pottery be allowed to heat up slowly with the oven; avoid placing it onto direct heat such as a stovetop burner.  Following these guidelines will ensure that you enjoy your beautiful stoneware for many years. It is the combination of function and beauty that makes Polish pottery so captivating and appealing.
