Care and Usage of Gien Faience
When purchasing a dinner service or gift items from Gien, you also receive
of a 180-year old tradition as well as the best faience earthenware quality available.
Your Gien Faience earthenware deserves the best care you can give. Although many patterns are advertised as dishwasher safe, hand washing is always the safest way to wash your dishes. Hand washing is a good precaution against scratching, chipping, abrading, cracking, and the frequent wear and tear of a dishwasher.

Microwave Oven and Conventional Ovens
The Faienceries de Gien Company states on their official website:
"Can Gien Faience earthenware pieces be used in the Microwave oven?
One must avoid placing Gien Faience Earthenware in microwave ovens; 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 (earthenware), so that it preserves its prettiest effects for as long as possible
You may use your earthenware pieces in the microwave oven for low reheating, but never for cooking or defreezing.
The Faienceries de Gien offers a range of culinary dishes matching many of their patterns.These are made of a different material and are adapted for the use of traditional ovens (up to a max of 250 degrees Centigrade) and microwave ovens.
The use of conventional ovens can cause thermal shock and damage the glaze
of the earthenware pieces in an irreversible manner. Please use oven-proof
Gien Bakeware only."
