Designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, Iittala’s Taiki selection includes a large range of exciting kitchen and tableware, including plates, bowls, mugs, saucers and platters. ‘Magic’ in Finnish, Taika was designed to inspire your own imagination and storytelling. Haapaniemi’s fascinating illustrations gradually reveal their details and layers of meaning to the viewer – adding a magic touch to everyday life. The Taika pieces complement each other well and can be combined with various other essential design objects
Iittala uses vitro porcelain, which is a modern, durable porcelain with a slightly off-white shade. All Iittala china is oven, microwave and freezer safe. Do not, however, take a dish straight from the oven and put it into a cold, wet surface or put it on steel. Do not put a dish straight into a hot oven from the freezer.
A dish filled with liquid is not freezer safe, as liquid expands when it freezes. Do not use the dish if it has a crack because in a sudden temperature change the dish can break. And finally if you cook frozen food in the microwave it should be cooked in low-heat.
When in the oven, the bottom of the dish must be completely covered with liquid or food throughout the heating process. It can stand 250 celsius degrees and must be at least 10 cm away from the grill elements. Cool before placing in freezer, do not put in a hot oven directly from the freezer.
As it is mainly knives that are pressed hardest against the surface of plates, the majority of cutlery manufacturers now make serrated knives from tempered steel. (It is not worth making serrated knives from non-tempered stainless steel as the serrated edge would wear down quite quickly.) The stainless steel of cutlery is relatively soft and can cause black spots on the porcelain if pressed hard against the surface of plates. The spots can not be removed with regular washing, but gently rub a metal scrubbing agent onto the surface. To maintain the durability of the glazed surface, avoid friction while piling the plates.

Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....
take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers
Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.
We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.
We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.
Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.
It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.
I can’t recommend highly enough.
Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.
