Metal in the Microwave
I hope it's a common understanding that one cannot place any metal objects in the microwave. You'd think with a collective society that can fly man to the moon, perform the most intricate brain surgeries, visit the depths of the ocean floor, among all the other incredible feats that someone would figure out how to safely allow metal objects in the microwave.
Until then, the fabulous folks at Juliska have come to the rescue. Imagine the most amazing, old-world pewter dishes, serving pieces, and drink wear, but can safely be used in the microwave, the dishwasher, the freezer, and (up to 500 degrees) in the oven. Now take away the chore of polishing or cleaning your pewter and the risk of scratching the metal.
I present to you Juliska Pewter Stoneware. Featuring a metallic stoneware glaze, these restaurant quality dishes and pieces make for the most stunning table arrangements. Perfect for everyday use, they're incredibly durable. I love the grandeur, the glitz, and the glamour of the pewter look, mixed with the handmade quality, attention to detail, and overall amazingness we expect from Juliska.
Now, for an even bigger pop of pizazz, I love the look achieved when mixing Juliska's Pewter Stoneware with Vietri's Incanto collection. De Medici dots, baroque curves, antique lace, olive branches and wildflowers combine to create Incanto - with revolutionary strength and classic beauty inspired by Italian art and history. The Juliska brings out the silver and grays hues of the Incanto so perfectly.
Fabulous dinner parties are easy to create when you have the perfect dishes and serving pieces on hand. Set the table, invite your friends, cook a simple pasta, toss an easy salad, pop the corks, and presto! - instant memories.
