Product Care

Porcelain is very strong but breakable if abused. To ensure life-long enjoyment of your Herend pieces, we recommend the following:

  • Hand washing in mild detergent is recommended. Avoid abrasives and lemon-based soaps.
  • If a dishwasher is used:
    • Avoid overloading the dishwasher to ensure that items don’t come in contact with one another and prevent chipping
    • Do not use lemon-based dishwashing liquid or abrasive powders
    • Lower temperature settings are better
    • Allow the porcelain to cool at the end of the drying cycle before removing it
  • Never put an item with gold or platinum trim in the microwave
  • Avoid storing acid-based foods in any painted porcelain container for an extended period of time
  • Dust items with a soft cloth. Avoid abrasives and lemon-based cleaning products
  • When storing, use felt pads or paper towels between stacked plates to decrease the possibility of abrasions
