The Chemist Cup is the sort of thing you might find in a 19th century laboratory or in a shadowy alchemist’s den. Its compact cylindrical form fits perfectly in your hand and keeps a chilled cocktail cold or a cup of tea hot. The 9 oz. size makes sure your beverage doesn’t get cold before you finish it (or your iced drink watered down).

Is your dinnerware dishwasher & microwave safe?

Yes, our plates are designed for the rigors of restaurant kitchens and will be safe in your dishwasher & microwave. For cleaning we recommend using detergents that are gentle and environmentally friendly such as Seventh Generation.

How do I clean cutlery marks off the plates?

Any matte glaze can show cutlery marking over time. This is a factor of the glaze being stronger than the flatware. Any marking is only temporary and do not worry, it is not harming the glaze. To remove these marks, we recommend scrubbing with a gentle abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keeper’s friend.

Is your dinnerware oven safe?

Yes, our plates are also safe in your oven up to 400°F but they are not bakeware or intended for routine use in the oven. Always be careful to prevent subjecting them to thermal shock (going from extreme cold to extreme hot or visa versa). Thermal shock can break or damage porcelain pottery.

Are your products durable?

Our work is used daily in over 175 restaurants around the world. Fast paced restaurants put our plates through rigors that they’ll never experience in your home. You can use our plates just like you’re accustomed to and when taken care of and stored properly, our wares will last a lifetime (or a few!).

How do Haand plates stack?

Our plates are designed to stack in your cupboard. We do not recommend stacking plates more than 12" high.

not as pictured

I ordered the Chemist Cup in 'concrete' color. Doesn't look like the photo on the website. What I received is a rather uniform 'grey-green' colored cup with lots of black speckled dots, and NONE of the darker-grey-brown wavy design seen in the photos (the part that makes it look like 'concrete'). Also I failed to notice the unpainted white pottery at the base of the cup in the online photos, and this was considerably higher on the cup I received - WHY have unpainted pottery at all? Destroys the idea this cup 'might' be concrete to see a wavy band of unpainted concrete at the base. Overall, especially considering the price, disappointed and do not recommend.

Perfect cups!

I love these beautiful chemist cups! I purchased them for my bathroom, and they work perfectly and add an elegant touch. Hand pottery is the best!

Lovely craftsmanship, too big for small hands

I adore the feel, look, and finish of these chemist cups. The white is perfect—not too bright and not too creamy, although it looks great with both. The drawback is that I have smaller hands even though I am 5’7”. Think if it this way—playing an octave on the piano is a stretch for me. I can’t get enough grasp all the way around to lift it safely, so I’m going to figure something else out. They are for our newly remodeled bathroom. They are perfect for hubby and probably okay for an average woman’s hands.

All-Around Delight

I have a tee shirt fetish, I admit it. Also a socks fetish. I bought one, just one, Chemist Cup. Now, it looks like I'm heading full-speed ahead towards a Chemist Cup fetish. Seriously, my bright turmeric Chemist Cup is an utter delight to see, hold, and drink from. Over and over again, several times a day. I think it's going to be impossible for me not to buy more!
