All of Lou Rota products are fully manufactured in the UK using authentic English fine bone china which is extremely durable and will last for years when properly cared for.


- It is safe to warm your fine bone china plates and serving dishes in the warming compartment of your oven up to 150°F
- Never place china in contact with a direct flame or subject it to extreme temperature fluctuations
- Fine bone china should not be used as cooking vessels
- Fine bone china is suitable for use in the freezer
- Our products are able to be microwaved but it is not recommended as it may cause product damage in the long term


- When hand washing, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents
- Most stains can be removed by soaking the item in warm water before washing
- It is safe to clean your fine bone china in an automatic dishwasher if the following guidelines are followed:
- Load the washer so that pieces do not touch each other, to avoid the risk of scratching; do not overload
- Wash at 149°F maximum and use the "short wash" cycle which is sufficient for normal cleaning
- Set the rinse cycle to begin immediately once the wash water drains to flush away detergent deposits which will form a film if allowed to dry on items
- In areas with hard water, deposits may form over time. Easily remove these soluble deposits with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water


- To keep Lou Rota fine bone china looking beautiful, we recommended washing soon after use to reduce risk of staining
- If stains occur, most can be removed by soaking the item in warm water before washing
- For stubborn stains, try to remove using natural cleansers rather than chemicals. For example, use a mixture of bicarbonate of soda, water and vinegar or simply dissolve 1 tablespoon of baking soda in with the wash water. You can also make a solution of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1/2 cup of warm water and pour this onto your china, allowing it to soak for few hours before rinsing
- Warning: using strong chemical cleaners or rubbing with abrasive materials may result in product damage


- Avoid storing plates directly on top of each other, as this may scratch the surface
- Use plate dividers or napkins to separate each plate. A purpose-made china storage protector is recommended
- Do not slide plates out from the bottom of the stack; always lift from the top
