How high can the oven temperature be?
Typically, 350 degrees is very acceptable for dinnerware, while bakeware can reach 500 degrees. While all pieces are temperature safe to 500 degrees, we do not however recommend placing above or directly under direct flame.
What causes the gray marks on dinnerware?
Gray marks on pottery are very common especially on lighter glazed colors. This is not an imperfection in the ware; simply caused when metal flatware comes into contact with glazes that are actually a harder substance than the metal itself. Glazes look and feel smooth to the touch but actually there are microscopic divots where the marks collect as the flatware is moved over them. Many consumers consider the marks scratches, however there is usually no damage to the glaze or pottery itself.
