STANDARDS OF QUALITY
Lillie Ceramics guarantees that all products sold through this website are manufactured according to the highest standards of quality. After completion, each product is therefore evaluated thoroughly in terms of quality.
Since 100% manual production is employed each piece shaped and decorated by Lillie Ceramics is exclusive and unique, never completely identical to another piece. This uniqueness is an important part of the brand and does not in any way affect the quality of the piece.
Since stoneware clay is a raw material composed of natural elements and minerals there might occasionally be very minor impurities in the ceramic body that may affect the surface of the glaze, creating a very minor imperfection. This (rare) occurrence does not in any way affect the quality of the piece.
In the event that the highest standards of quality should not be provided, and this damage occurs after 15 days from reception, you are entitled to receive an exchange product free of charge.
Lillie Ceramics guarantees the continuously high standard of quality of each product sold through this website as long as you handle the product in a safe manner, meaning that you do not subject the product to unreasonable force of impact.
For tableware: The dishwasher and the microwave can be used on a daily basis without the ceramic body or glaze surface being damaged. The microwave may cause the product to become warm to the touch. If the particular product is not recommended for dishwasher or microwave, there is clear indication in the shop.
The products named “oven dish” can be used in the normal oven without damaging the quality.
Heating up the “oven dish” in connection to fire may however, due to the thermal shock involved, cause damage to the quality.
Lillie Ceramics guarantees that all products sold through this website are in compliance with the rules regarding ceramic products in contact with food, governed by the European Council Directive 84/500/EEC, later amended by the European Commission Directive 2005/31/EC.
