These beautiful ceramic pieces were carefully hand-crafted by skilled Italian artisans. No two pieces are exactly alike because of the individual workmanship. The variations in finish or appearance you may find are not considered imperfections, but rather the mark of a unique hand-worked item.
As with any ceramic container, you should not store liquids for more than 24 hours. Earthenware pottery is by nature more porous than glass and some liquids can seep through the glaze. Please use the serving pieces for service only.
Mamma Rò dinnerware and accessories are dishwasher safe and microwavable. Items used in the microwave will get as warm as the food you are cooking. Dishwashing detergent is caustic and can dull any glaze or glass over years of use. Special note: Cookware pieces are specifically designed for conventional oven use ONLY and should not be used in the microwave or dishwasher.
The first time Mamma Ró is subject to a change in temperature, there is a natural settling process that can be heard as a pinging or tingling sound. This sound is a natural occurrence and is not harmful to the integrity of the piece.
Each different Mamma Rò design and color have been independently tested for lead, cadmium, and other contents and have been found to consistently pass U.S. safety standards. The Federal Drug Administration also performs periodic checking of merchandise shipped to us from Italy.
To avoid heat damage or a “wet ring” on your dining table or counters, place the cookware pieces on a tray or plate when serving.
Our unique red sometimes experiences an extraordinary occurrence after the initial washing. Raised white lines or specks may appear on part or all of the piece. These can be simply wiped away with a damp cloth or repeat washed 2 to 3 times as necessary. These lines will disappear after a few washings never to return. This affect happens as a result of a slightly different firing condition at the factory and does not always occur. The white substance is a mineral component of the glaze and it is not considered harmful.
