Product Care

Each Richard Ginori manufactured product is made from hard feldspar porcelain composed of quartz and kalin feldspar using artisanal and industrial production techniques developed in almost three centuries of historical production. This entire process takes place from the first fire to the decoration, through various production cycles, at the end of which a careful quality control certifies the absolute purity and perfection. The attention to detail is the expression of a know-how and a mastery transmitted over time by the master craftsmen of the Manufacture.
Each Richard Ginori manufactured object, whether decorated or made in white, is a unique product: each color tone created through the various pictorial techniques, as in products painted and decorated or airbrushed by hand, bears the indisputable mark of 'extraordinary craftsmanship. Each product is a copy of history, art and Made in Italy.
All sets in the Richard Ginori table collections are tested and conceptualized to conform to food contact use, according to international standards. The quantities of lead and cadmium are particularly analyzed for each decoration, in accordance with the UNI EN 1388, ISO 6486, ASTM C738 and ASTM C927 standards, as well as the legal limitations in accordance with applicable national regulations such as the European Regulation CE 1935 / 2004 and the European Directive 2005/31 / EC; the Japanese MHLW Migration Specification N.370 (2008 revision) and the U.S. FDA Compliance Policy Guides Section 545.400 and 545.450.
Dishwashing resistance in Richard Ginori decorated products is evaluated according to EN 12875-4. For decorations made by hand and / or with precious metals such as gold and platinum, it is advisable to wash objects by hand with a mild detergent.
Resistance to the microwave oven is evaluated according to UNI EN 15284. Articles with metal-based decorations, including gold and platinum, must not be used in a microwave oven . In addition, as these are not oven-specific items, Richard Ginori porcelains should not be used in a conventional oven or in direct fire.
Avoid the use of dishwasher detergents or normal products. Porcelain / crystal detergents are more suitable. Wash the crystal in warm water with a soft cloth. Dry the crystal with a soft cloth to prevent the formation of traces of water. Before each wash, check for a plastic mat to place the objects, and use a tap cover to prevent bumps and scratches. Washable also in the dishwasher with a shorter cycle and lower temperature. Load the dishwasher so that objects do not touch each other.

The cutlery can be washed in a dishwasher, with the exception of the salad service whose ends do not withstand high temperatures. When using a dishwasher for which it is advisable to use neutral detergents not aggressive and without the presence of lemon, use different baskets to separate the cutlery and thus prevent them from scratching between them. If possible, soak and prewash to remove the most important food residues. As soon as the wash, rinse and dry cycle is complete, remove the cutlery from the dishwasher. It is recommended to dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth. The knives should not be immersed for a long time in saline solutions, but must be removed from the dishwasher quickly after the end of the wash cycle, because the chrome-plated stainless steel blade is sensitive to prolonged contact with salt solutions . In the case of manual washing, use soft sponges (neither scotch brite nor abrasive sponge) with a neutral detergent, being careful to then rest the cutlery perfectly dry. Keep the cutlery in a dry place.
