Use and maintenanceIs Gien Faience-earthenware dishwasher-proof?
You can clean your Faiencerie de Gien pieces in the dishwasher, but please monitor the doses of detergent and rinsing liquid and the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Give preference to « eco » or low temperature programs to avoid thermal shocks and preserve your pieces.
The hand-painted pieces of the Gien prestige collections result from a different manufacturing mode and are not dishwasher-proof.
Can the Gien Faience-earthenware pieces be used in the microwave oven?
One must avoid placing Faience-earthenware in the microwave oven; their action mechanically wears out the glazing which more or less ends up cracking. This is not a disadvantage, but attention and care must be provided to this ceramic material so that it preserves its prettiest effects as long as possible.
You can eventually use your pieces in a microwave oven for low reheating, but never for defreezing or cooking.
