Care and Use
Microwave and Washing:
All Sparnicht tableware is microwave and dishwasher safe. That said, we do recommend hand washing your Sparnicht pieces, as this is a more gentle process on handmade ware.
In the Oven:
Sparnicht pieces are not oven safe, and they should not be subjected to drastic changes in atmospheric temperature (ie from being in a refrigerator to popped in an oven).
Markings on My Pot:
Our glazes range in finish from gloss to satin matte--matte surfaces often accrue cutlery marks. These are gentle, grey streaks that you may have seen on well worn dishes from contact with forks and knives. To remove cutlery marks, scrub the markings with the course side of your dish sponge using Barkeeper's friend--this product can be purchased at most home improvement stores.
We acid test all of our glazes to prove their food safety--these tests ensure that no metallic oxides (what give our pots beautiful colors) leave the composition of any pot we sell.
If you have any questions about caring for your Sparnicht pieces, please don't hesitate to contact us.
