THE CLASSIC CERAMIC MANUFACTORY
In the course of developing our second tableware collection KLASSIK we went in search of another ceramic manufacturer. We landed at a family business in the rolling hills behind Porto. The family looks back on a long ceramic tradition. Working with clay has been consistently passed down and specialized from generation to generation.
Our KLASSIK collection is tamped by hand before being cleaned and refined after a drying process to be glazed before firing. Creative hand-painting is part of the manufacturer's hobbyhorse. Thus KLASSIK gets her stripes missed in loving handwork in the small studio.
FRIENDS OF THE HEAT - OFF TO THE OVEN
Stoneware ceramic can be placed in the oven because it is made of a clay material that has good thermal conductivity. This allows it to absorb and release heat evenly in the oven, which means that the food in it is cooked evenly and gently. Moreover, stoneware is sturdy and durable, so it can withstand the high temperatures in the oven without breaking or damaging. However, it is important to note that ceramic stoneware dishes should not be exposed to high temperature fluctuations. Accordingly, the previous day's lasagna from the refrigerator should not be placed in the heated oven. Bon appetit!
