All Deruta pottery is 100% food safe and lead and cadmium free. Hand washing is recommended.

With continual use majolica can develop tiny cracks in the glaze which is the nature of majolica and has no significant effect on the pieces. Avoid extremes of temperature when using ceramic products as this can cause breakage due to heat shock. This is the cracking that happens when majolica is rapidly heated or cooled. Our ceramic items are non suitable for use in domestic ovens or in microwave ovens.
