Most crockery and cookware tends to be either stoneware or earthenware, with the former having many advantages over the latter. Denby tableware ranges are made from stoneware, porcelain or china, all of which have advantages over earthenware. A strong and durable substance, stoneware is used because it is fully vitrified, meaning that it is non-porous and so will be water tight. Another reason is that its strength also makes it less likely to be chipped when it receives bumps and knocks – perfect for a busy kitchen.

Stoneware is ideal for kitchen pieces such as plates, bowls and cookware, because it is able to cope with extreme high and low temperatures. This means that it is suitable for use in ovens, microwaves, dishwashers or freezers. Even with its innate ability to cope with high or low temperatures, you should still never expose your stoneware pieces to sudden changes in temperature, such as transferring it directly from the freezer to the oven or microwave.

Another fantastic feature of stoneware for kitchen pieces is that it can be glazed to give it beautiful colours. Denby tableware is available in a range of wonderful colours and designs, so you’re sure to find something to suit any home décor and to complement every table. One of the most popular is the Azure range, which uses cool aquamarine tones on its solid, glazed pieces. You can choose to buy a complete dinner service, or alternatively mix and match by buying separate pieces from the Azure, Azure Coast and Azure Shell ranges.
