Care & Use

We'd better not hear that you've got your KK pieces locked up in a cabinet. 

// Made for daily use.

For real. All of our pieces are made to be used every day and are safe for dishwashers and microwaves. Everything we make is food-safe. Our clay and glazes are lead-free, and all of our work is high-fired to more than 2,300º F. 🔥

// Special treatment for gold, please. 

That said, we recommend hand-washing any work with gold on it as the abrasives in detergent can dull the gold finish over time, and we don’t want that. Also skip the microwave, because microwaving metal is never a good idea. 

// Durable and made to last. 

We have it on good authority that our work holds up like a champ in restaurant kitchens, so hopefully it can survive with you. We are striving to make heirloom quality goods that you can pass down to your kids and grandkids. Just don’t drop it. We haven’t solved for gravity and hard kitchen floors yet.

If you do happen to notice what appears to be a scratch on the surface, don’t worry, it’s not damaged. Residue from cutlery can be removed with Bar Keeper’s Friend & Polish.
