Careful hand washing and drying is the secret to helping this knife last for generations.
Spode for Portmeirion
Its history dates back to 1770, but Spode is always a la mode (as in "in style," but yes, you can also put ice cream on it). Since 2009, Spode has been part of the Portmeirion Group, the iconic British pottery company based in Stoke-on-Trent, England. It's an auspicious union, for Spode's own history began in Stoke-on-Trent over 250 years ago, when Josiah Spode the First bought land adjoining his small pottery factory and began his eponymous company. Spode's innovative techniques included the introduction and perfection of blue under-glaze transfer printing on earthenware in 1784, and, along with his son Josiah II, the perfection of the recipe for fine bone china, which revolutionized the pottery industry with its strength, superior quality, and translucent, brilliant white appearance.
The selection of contemporary Spode serveware, dinnerware, and drinkware is headlined by the Spode Baking Day collection. These playful, strikingly modern pieces are designed to bring fun into the kitchen. Their cheerful colors and white polka-dot patterns provide kitchen service with a smile, and their durable stoneware material can be safely used in freezers, ovens, dishwashers, and microwaves.
