Grace Your Table with Fiestaware from Homer Laughlin

Sep 15, 2008
Fiestaware is a striking and collectible way to add a little spice to your table. However, if you're going to use these dishes properly, they'll have to have the right kind of care. If you don't protect the appearance and integrity of your tableware, it won't last. The good news is that caring for Fiestaware doesn't have to be hard. Here are a few tips.

Just like any other kind of ceramic dinnerware, Fiesta dishes are best hand washed. Use a mild soap, but don't buy lemon oil or lemon scented detergents, since they can cause damage. All Fiesta ware should be kept clean, even those that spend all their time in display cases.

A common problem you might have if you own and use Fiestaware is marking. Metal utensils are prone to leave unsightly gray marks on light dishes, like the ivory, yellow, or light green styles. The good news is that Fiesta ware was made for every day use. That means its durable surface can be cleaned of these marks.

A soft metal polish will help you get these unsightly marks off the ceramic surface. Just be sure to clean your dinnerware well afterwards to remove all traces of the cleaner, and never use harsh cleansers on this kind of surface. Don't use harsh scrubbers on the surface of Fiesta ware, either.

It's hard to replace Fiesta ware, so take care not to break or scratch it. Fiestaware should be gently placed on hard surfaces without being allowed to bump into other pieces. Never place your Fiestaware in the oven or on the stove top, and place a paper towel or other protector between plates to make sure they won't damage one another in the cabinet.

Store vintage Fiestaware In a display cabinet or using a china storage set. Use holders made for bowls and plates to keep tableware in good shape if you're displaying it, and make sure that all holders have smooth surfaces.

Make sure that any holders you use are made for the size and weight plate or bowl that you're displaying. This prevents accidents. If you store your plates and other Fiesta pieces flat, dust them periodically.

Caring for your set of Fiestaware well means that it'll stay as useful and attractive as it was when you first bought it. You'll get the most out of your Fiesta ware if you treat it well. You'll be glad you did in the long run.
