Mostly, the precious fine china we own has come after a substantial investment or as inheritance as a priceless heirloom from generations before. Regardless of whether the expensive crockery was a gift or purchased, it has a superior standing in our kitchen. The cleaning, usage, display and preservation is of utmost importance.
We dream of warranting that this crockery will last till our next generation without losing its sheen, and will remain unbroken with no cracks or chipping. We take care of this crockery as memoirs of generations before us and to assure an elegant table that welcomes both family and friends.
Mentioned below are some tips to help any owner preserve his or her expensive crockery.
Modern china can be washed in the dishwasher, but hand painted or metal trimmed crockery could fade due to hot water and strong dishwasher detergent. It is best to test a set by washing the same piece daily for several weeks in the dishwasher and then comparing it with the rest of the set to see if there is any fading.
Use High Grade Cutlery
Always use exceptional quality of cutlery with your expensive crockery. You must be wondering, what is the connection between the cutlery and crockery. The answer is, friction of forks and spoons made out of low grade steel will increase metal marking on your crockery and reduce the beautiful sheen of your crockery. Hence, this suggestion.
Washing of the Crockery
Don’t wash your delicate crockery with the rest of the pots and pans. The reason is simple, if the rugged pots brush against or fall on your delicate china then that piece could end in pieces. Also the temperature should always be lukewarm enough to remove any stains. This is because very hot water could damage the colors and design or crack the china due to the heat.
Don’t Mix Storage
For a long and healthy life of your crockery, keep it in a separate storage space. Beautiful antique plates and serving bowls do not go with the regular metal, ceramic, glass or steel utensils. Store crockery very carefully in a place with minimum disturbance. Placing a soft cloth or tissue between each crockery piece will prevent abrasion. The cups should not be stored in an inverted position or hanging from the handle as the rim may get damaged or the handle could come loose. Antique crockery should be stored with utmost care and especially never stacked. To place them as decorative pieces in a showcase for display is also a great idea. Ultimately, they have to be handled carefully when used on special occasions.
