With its elegant styling and generous capacity, a Stoneware Pitcher is the ideal addition to a table, patio or bar. The classic silhouette tapers toward the hand-formed spout, allowing smooth pouring. An off-shoot of the Graffiti Green pattern, the Holly Graffiti pattern is often used during the Christmas season to add a bit of color to the table. The Pitcher stands alone or together with its sister pattern -- Graffiti.
The handle is molded separately and lovingly applied by hand for a seamless appearance and lasting durability. The handle is easy to grip, colorfully painted and a comfortable temperature whether you’re serving warm or cold beverages from hot chocolate, hot apple cider and hot toddys to sangria, iced tea and water.
To chill your Pitcher, place it in the freezer for at least 30 minutes – it can be stored there permanently if you like. When you are ready to serve, place the Pitcher on a coaster or tea towel and enjoy a chilled beverage.
Stoneware can be safely used in the oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. Just remember to allow pieces from the dishwasher to cool before refrigerating. Likewise, you should allow refrigerated piece to return to room temperature before washing. As with any stoneware item, extreme and sudden variation in temperature may cause cracking or breakage.
With the carefully applied glaze, Stoneware is easy to wipe clean. Use a permanent marker to write your name on the bottom of Stoneware that you take to a potluck (don’t worry it washes off with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer). Stoneware is naturally resilient resisting scratches and fading. Superficial marks from silverware can be cleaned up with silver polish or cooktop cleaner.
