How to take care of your porcelain

Learn how to take good care of your porcelain

Beautiful Royal Copenhagen blue fluted porcelain tableware

Today, many people are afraid of using their fine china or expensive porcelain. Some fear that the delicate sets of porcelain will be damaged in the dishwasher or microwave oven and that is a shame!

That is why we have put together this guide to provide you with some useful tips and advice for taking good care of your porcelain, making it possible for you to use it every day - even in the dishwasher and microwave oven.

White and blue painted under-glazed sets are approved for dishwashers and microwave ovens

In general the majority of the white and blue painted sets with under-glazing decorations and internal glazing are all approved for dishwashers and microwave ovens.

Porcelain series approved for dishwashers and microwave ovens

  • White plain
  • Blue fluted
  • Blue flower
  • Empire
  • Blue fluted Mega
  • Hans Christian Andersen series

The faience sets (e.g. Blue Edged) are also approved for use in dishwashers. The execeptions being sets with metallic edges (e.g. golden edges/rims) and metallic/golden decorations.

Among others Royal Copenhagen are continously running laboratory tests to see how the porcelain reacts and if it can be used in dishwashers.

Not recommended for dishwashers and microwave ovens

The sets of porcelain with metallic, golden and silver decorations are recommended to be cleaned by hand, unless the product packaging encourage otherwise.

Porcelain and faience sets are able to handle heating in a microwave oven, as long as the sets af not decorated with any metal, gold or silver, which could be severely damaged in the microwave oven.

Can I clean my Christmas plates in a dishwasher?

Yes, Christmas plates by Royal Copenhagen, Bing & Grondahl and Desiree Denmark (Old Copenhagen Blue/Svend Jensen) are safe to clean in a dishwasher due to their under glazed decorations.

How do I clean porcelain with metallic (and/or over glazed) decorations?

We recommend that you clean sets of porcelain with gold, silver and metallic decorations by hand, unless the product brochure suggests otherwise.

If your porcelain is decorated using the over glazed method (as on e.g. the Flora Danica series) we do not recommend using a dishwasher to clean the items.

Although some of the more recent editions and series such as the Flora and Star fluted are able to endure dishwashers, we recommend you to clean these series by hand to keep their finish optimal for as long as possible.

Can I use porcelain by Royal Copenhagen in a microwave oven?

Yes, a set of porcelain or faience by Royal Copenhagen is safe to use in a microwave oven.

However, we do not recommend using products decorated with metallic, gold and/or silver in a microwave oven. Items with such decorations can be severely damaged by microwaves.

Can I use porcelain by Royal Copenhagen in a conventional oven/stove?

We recommend customers who wish to use Royal Copenhagen sets in a conventional oven or stove, to slowly heat up and slowly cool down the items.

Large and fast changes in tempatures can in the worst scenarios break the porcelain. As an example you could place items from a hot oven on a rack to let it cool down slowly.

We do not recommend convection ovens.

Alle ordre over kr. 1.000,- leveres fragtfrit i Danmark. 

Fragtfri betyder at vi betaler for forsendelsen af din ordre, dvs. der bliver ikke tillagt fragt eller ekspeditionsgebyr til de viste priser, hvis du blot bestiller for over kr. 1.000,- 

Du kan altid se det samlede beløb for de varer du ligger i indkøbskurven incl. eventuel fragt -  inden du gennemfører dit køb.

Vi sender primært med Post Danmark eller GLS i Danmark, til udlandet bruger vi oftest FedEx, dog afhængigt af hvilke varer du bestiller mv.  

Den fragtpris som vises i indkøbskurven beregnes automatisk ud antallet af varer, deres mål og vægt, leveringsland og leveringsmåde. (Bemærk vi leverer ikke fragtfrit til udlandet). 

 

Ekstra tunge varer leveres ikke fragtfrit

Hvis du bestiller møbler, eller andre meget store eller tunge varer, som ikke kan sendes med posten eller GLS, leveres disse ikke fragtfrit. 

Når en vare har     Ekstra fragt    symbolet,  er det fordi varen er af betydelig

størrelse og/eller vægt. På disse varer kan vi ikke tilbyde at levere fragtfrit ved køb over 1000 kr.

Typisk er det varer som møbler, større bronze figurer, kæmpe store vaser, kæmpe store lamper,
der ikke leveres fragtfrit.

Sådanne varer kan ikke købes online før DPH har udregnet en fragtpris. - Dette gøres ved at lægge
varen i kurven, og sende kurvens indhold som en forespørgsel til DPH.

NB. Når der er tale om møbler og andre store ting, kan det ofte være en god ide, at afhente varen i
vores butik i Odense N. - Det giver dig mulighed for at se varen i virkeligheden inden du endeligt beslutter
dig, og samtidig sparer du fragtomkostningen.  - Skriv gerne i kommentar feltet, når du sender os en
forespørgsel via websitet, at du overvejer at afhente i butikken.
