Glass Dinnerware & Serving Pieces – Durable & Elegant
Oven, and Dishwasher Safe
When you look at the lustrous, exciting beauty of JSG
glass dinnerware, it’s hard to believe each piece is made out of
something called “Hard Roc” glass. But that is exactly why we
can assure you that our glass dinnerware is microwave, oven, and
dishwasher safe. These dinnerware serving pieces are durable,
scratch, and stain resistant, and perfectly practical for everyday
use. And yet their beauty is heirloom quality.
What is Hard Roc glass? It is a special formulation of
borosilicate glass, a uniquely engineered glass developed by our
parent company, Jeannette Specialty Glass. It has a WOW factor
unlike any other and provides many advantages over traditional
dinnerware. From dinner plates and serving bowls to cutting
boards and coasters, you will never see another collection that so
captures the beauty of light and the excitement of the glass maker’s
JSG Oceana’s glass dinnerware is non-porous and non-absorptive, thus
it is impervious to the common elements as well as to many chemicals
and liquids. It is exceptionally resistant to abrasion and surface
scratches, and it is fatigue-proof.

Should some JSG
Oceana Products not be used in a Microwave?
JSG Oceana offers a wide variety of products, some of which are
not suitable for microwave, oven, and dishwasher use. Products
like our Signature Series of giftware Chargers, Candy Dishes, and
Decorative Bowls are crafted by infusing molten glass with 24K gold,
platinum, and copper, adding a special elegance, but making various
methods of heating inappropriate. Likewise, pieces that employ
metal handles, stands, tiers, and the like, cannot be heated with
their metal appointments in place.
Hard Roc vs. Soda Lime Glass
The most common designer glass available, and still widely used, is soda-lime glass. It is inexpensive to produce and until the development of
JSG Oceana’s “Hard Roc” formula would have been the glass of choice for applications such as decorative vessel sinks.
Today, JSG Oceana’s “Hard Roc” glass
dinnerware provides the consumer with many advantages in durability and functionality.
- Most JSG Oceana “Hard Roc” glass dinnerware is Microwave, Oven,
and Dishwasher Safe
- Our products will not crack or develop lines from hot and
cold water usage like soda-lime glass products. “Hard Roc” glass
has a low coefficient of expansion, 3 times less than soda lime
glass. This makes it useful for the oven and microwave, without
the risk of breakage due to thermal shock. And it's far more
beautiful than standard kitchen glassware.
- JSG Oceana “Hard Roc” glass is stain resistant. “Hard Roc” glass is highly resistant to non-fluorinated chemicals thus allowing it to keep its lustrous color and clear quality. Soda-lime glass has only fair resistance to chemical corrosives and over time becomes cloudy from household cleaners and rust marked from hard water.
- JSG Oceana “Hard Roc” glass is more scratch resistant
than soda-lime glass, making it the glass of choice for products
such as cutting boards, dinnerware, serving trays, decorative bowls, and more.
*Certain JSG Oceana products, such as those
infused with precious metals, or incorporating metal parts or
stands, are not recommended for oven, microwave, and dishwasher use.
