Care & Usage Tips

Glass is a wonderful material — it’s clean, pure (BPA-free), and allows your pets to enjoy their food in the most delicious way possible. To keep your glass looking and functioning great, we have a few tips for you to avoid breakage and shock.

THERMAL SHOCK

Transitioning glass from one extreme temperature to the next may cause stress to the glassware item and could risk breakage from thermal shock.

To avoid this, we have a little bit of advice. Try to not put hot items in cold glass. If you have just rinsed your glass in cold water or it has been in a cold location, pouring hot liquids or placing other heated items into it can cause it to stress and crack. This works the other way too — just be mindful to expose your glass to higher or lower temperature only when it is already at room temperature.

To prevent the risk of glassware breakage caused by stress, be sure to avoid the following:

  • Placing hot food or liquid into a cold bowl
  • Pouring cold liquid or ice cubes into a warm glass (i.e. a glass that was just removed from dishwasher)
  • Removing a glass bake dish from the oven and placing on a cold countertop (always use hot pads!)
  • Placing a warm bake dish containing leftovers into the fridge
  • Placing cold or chilled bake dish into the oven or microwave

MECHANICAL SHOCK

Mechanical shock in glassware is the direct result of contact with another object, such as a spoon, another  glass, or a piece of  china. This kind of contact can cause a minute abrasion, invisible to the eye, but a source of weakness in the glass, making it more susceptible to breakage from impact or thermal shock.
