Overglazes can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink. Care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of metal or lustre. Treat your overglazed pieces as you would bone china. Although overglazed ware will take repeated washings in a dishwasher, the overglaze will eventually wear away. Note: Ware decorated with metallic overglazes should not be used in microwave ovens.
