Back to Basics

Denby is world famous for its stoneware products and is fast gaining a reputation for porcelain (White, White Trace and Serve) and china (China by Denby). As you would expect, all Denby tableware is practical, durable and extremely good looking.

Stoneware

Stoneware clay is very strong. It is fully vitrified (the surface is made glassy and non-porous) which gives it strength, durability and chip resistance.

It can be safely used in:

  • Dishwasher - we recommend using low temperatures and liquid detergents
  • Oven & Microwave – for cooking and reheating food
  • Freezer – for storing food

Porcelain

Similar in strength to stoneware, porcelain has a more translucent body and is naturally a blue-gray white.

It can be safely used in:

  • Dishwasher - we recommend using low temperatures and liquid detergents
  • Oven & Microwave – for cooking and reheating food
  • Freezer – for storing food

China

China by Denby has all the elegance of china with all the long-lasting toughness of Denby. It’s elegant and refined but also tough, useable and chip-resistant.

It can be safely used in:

  • Dishwasher - we recommend using low temperatures and liquid detergents
  • Microwave - for cooking and reheating food
  • Freezer – for storing food
  • Oven – safe to heat to a maximum of 100°C but not suitable for cooking

All pottery and china can crack if exposed to sudden changes in temperature, no matter how strong it is, so please don't take items from the freezer and put them straight into the oven or microwave.
