How to properly treat your new authentic Talavera – Since Talavera is fired at very high temperatures it makes it a very durable product. We recommend treating your Talavera as you would treat any other fine china product.
If you decide to place it in the dishwasher, use care to ensure that it does not rattle against other pieces during the washing process. It is microwave safe, but use care as it will absorb heat. The high firing temperatures also make it oven safe. We recommend placing the piece in the oven when the oven is started and let it warm up with the oven. With proper care, your Talavera piece will last for years to come!
Most of the Talavera pottery offered by La Fuente Imports, including all plates, platters, and place settings, is made by hand in Puebla, Mexico, and is 100% lead-free as well as microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. The detail is outstanding, and due to the kiln’s high firing temperature all our Talavera dishware is also crack and chip resistant.
