Susan's china products are very durable and when properly cared for, will last for many years. They are safe to warm in a oven warming compartment up to 150F/65'C.
Do not place china in direct contact with flames, or hob top as china will crack at extreme temperature change.
China with gold or silver detail are not microwave safe.
Fine bone china should not be used for cooking purposes.
When washing by hand, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents. Most stains can be removed by soaking in warm water before washing. Teapot and coffee stains can be removed with Barkeepers Friend, and toothpaste will remove "pencil marks" caused by minute mineral deposits from cutlery.
Dishwasher Safe- unless your china has gold or silver detailing.
Hard Water: In hard water areas, deposits may form on your tableware over a period if the water is allowed to dry on the ware. These soluble deposits can easily be removed with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water.
Storing Tableware: Avoid storing plates directly on top of each other, as this may scratch the surface. Store with plate dividers or napkins separating each plate. Do not slide plates out from the bottom of the stack; always lift them from the top.
Susan's tableware china is made for everyday use. All new patterns are put through an exhaustive series of tests to ensure that colours are as hard wearing as possible. Quality checks are constantly carried out to monitor the ability of the china to resist the rigors of day-to-day use.
