Extreme temperatures can crack or break your crystal/glass. Avoid pouring hot liquids into cold crystal/glass, or very cold liquids into warm crystal /glass. Do not use product in a microwave or conventional oven. The finely made rims are the most fragile part of your product. Do not turn upside down while drying or storing.
