Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to stoneware vs. porcelain, what’s the difference?
The primary difference between stoneware and porcelain is that porcelain is made from a finer particle clay than stoneware, which generally results in thinner, lighter, and less durable pieces. Our stoneware is fired twice for durability, making it perfect for everyday use.
Does your dinnerware have lead or any other heavy metals in it?
All of our products undergo strict testing. Our premium, Portuguese dinnerware is free of lead, cadmium, and other heavy metals, and is compliant with GCGR, FDA, and Prop 65 regulations.
Do your ceramics scratch easily?
While all semi-matte ceramics are susceptible to superficial marks from your flatware, they can be easily taken off with a good scrubber and a scouring compound. If you notice marks on your ceramics, use a scouring powder like Bar Keepers Friend to make a paste with water; lemon juice and baking soda will also work. Using the paste and a scrubber—we recommend our Tawashi Brush—give the surface of your ceramics a hearty scrub for a few seconds. After a soapy rinse, your dinnerware should be good as new.
Are your ceramics sustainable?
At Fable, we craft sustainable dinnerware you can feel good about setting on the dinner table. During the production of our dinnerware, nothing goes to waste—as our ceramics are made, all excess clay clippings, broken plates, and water used during production are recycled and reused. Clay clippings and broken plates are reincorporated into the production process for reuse, and broken ceramics that have already been glazed are recycled into concrete.
Once the water used during production has been recycled multiple times and becomes too saturated with clay particles, it’s reused as fertilizer in local farmers’ fields. During the day, our ceramics facility is 100% solar powered.
Is your dinnerware dishwasher and microwave safe?
Yes. All Fable stoneware is durably crafted for everyday use, and our ceramics are completely dishwasher safe, microwave safe, and oven safe up to 450ºF.
