Bolesławiec ceramics are very durable, and can be used in the dishwasher, microwave, freezers, ovens and on ceramic cooktops up to 280°.
However, there are a few things you should be aware of, which may impact the durability of the products:
- You shouldn't put a pot into a pre-heated oven or onto a hot ceramic or electric hob! Always put the pot with food into the cold oven and then switch it on and heat to a required temperature. This will avoid the pot being exposed to sudden temperature changes, which may result in the pot cracking. It is important that the pot gets heated up gradually.
- You shouldn't put a hot pot into a sink and flush it with water. Hot pots must cool down naturally and may then be washed.
- If you want to heat a dish in a pot stored previously in a fridge or freezer, you must take it out from the fridge / freezer and wait until the pot and its content is at room temperature.
- If your food was frozen in the pot, you should de-freeze it in the fridge, ideally overnight. Then when ready for heating up, keep it out of the fridge before placing into the cold oven. Then switch the oven on and let it heat up with the pot and food inside (see point 1).
- If you want to heat a dish in a pot stored previously in a fridge, you should take it out from the fridge and wait about 30 minutes before heating it up or pre-heat for 10–15 minutes it in the oven in the temperature not exceeding 50˚C, still following the rule in point 1.
Following these rules ensures long-term use of our products.
