A Guide to Cleaning Your Tuxton Home Dinnerware
Tuxton Home dinnerware is a beautiful and durable choice for any home. Whether you have just purchased your set or have been using it for years, proper care and maintenance will help to ensure that your plates, bowls, mugs and even ramekins stay looking like new. In this guide, we will cover everything you need to know about cleaning and maintaining your Tuxton Home, ethically made dinnerware.
Before using your Tuxton Home dinnerware, it is important to remove all labels. Then, wash your serveware with dish soap or dishwashing detergent by hand or in a dishwasher. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated during shipping or storage.
Cleaning & Maintenance
After using your Tuxton Home dinnerware, it is important to allow the product to soak before washing. For the removal of stubborn food residue, allow the dish to cool, then fill it with warm, soapy water and soak for 10-20 minutes. Use a plastic brush or scouring pad if necessary.
Tuxton Home ceramic products are dishwasher safe. However, as with all fine cookware, handwashing is preferred. In time, the cumulative effects of strong agitation and harsh detergent used with the dishwasher will dull the high-gloss exterior, although the performance of Tuxton stainless steel pans, for example, wouldn't be affected.
Getting the Most Out of Your Plates
To get the most out of your plates, it is important to avoid dragging the bottom of the plate over the top of another plate because this may cause scratching on the glazed surface of your ware. Always lift plates upward instead.
Avoiding Direct Heat or Flame
It is important to avoid placing your dinnerware on direct heat or flame. This can cause damage to the dinnerware and may even result in cracking or breaking.
Avoiding Extreme Temperature Changes
You should also avoid exposing your dinnerware to extreme temperature changes. Hot dishes, like bowls or mugs, should not be placed on a cold or wet surface. Additionally, you should not run cold water on your dinnerware while it is hot.
Using Heat-Resistant Oven Mitts or Pads
When removing your dinnerware from the oven or microwave, always use a heat-resistant oven mitt or pad. The item will be extremely hot, so it is important to place the dinnerware on a trivet or hot pad — not directly on kitchen surfaces
Protecting Your Table Surface with a Trivet
When serving direct from oven to table, be sure to protect your table surface with a trivet. This will help to prevent heat damage to your table and will also help to keep your dinnerware stable on the table.
Handling Your Dinnerware with Care
Although Tuxton Home® ceramics are chip-resistant, they can still break when impacted. Therefore, it is important to handle your dinnerware with care. Avoid stacking your plates too high or dropping them on hard surfaces.
Storing Your Dinnerware Properly
When storing your Tuxton Home dinnerware, be sure to stack your plates and bowls carefully, with a cushioning material between each item. This will help to prevent scratching and chipping.
Keeping Your Dinnerware Looking Like New
To keep your Tuxton Home dinnerware looking like new, it is important to clean it regularly and to handle it with care. You should also avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals that may damage the glaze or surface of your dinnerware.
