All items of Denby stoneware and porcelain dinnerware are suitable for use in the microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher. However, following certain guidelines can prolong the life and maintain the quality of your Denby products. For dishwasher use it is recommended that low temperatures and liquid detergents are used.

Denby has been producing pottery for over 200 years in the heart of the English countryside. It is their care, attention and expertise which has made Denby so popular and it is the same set of principles which means Denby is the first UK tableware manufacturer to be able to claim ‘zero to landfill’ for all process waste. Being ‘zero to landfill’ saves approximately 600 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year. With quality standards being so high, any clay with faults is recycled into new stoneware, saving 2500 tonnes of raw clay, the equivalent of 350 fully loaded double decker buses! All of Denby’s moulds are made from plaster of Paris which is recycled to make plasterboard. Every year Denby recycle 300 tonnes of plaster of Paris, over 100,000 litres of glaze during the glazing process and they re-use 8 million litres of water and purify and return to the water cycle 28 million litres of water. Denby also recycle over 300 tonnes of packaging and wherever possible minimize the packaging sent out by using reusable totes.
