Longaberger Pottery Uses

Longaberger makes baskets, vitrified pottery, stoneware and accessories. All Longaberger items are of high quality. Both the vitrified pottery and stoneware can be used in the oven but are not considered oven safe. This means that they will not go from the freezer to a hot oven. However, they will go from the refrigerator to a cool oven or from room temperature to a hot oven. Both the pottery and stoneware items are dishwasher safe. Does this Spark an idea?

Food Preparation and Storage

Both the vitrified pottery and stoneware made by Longaberger is safe to use when preparing or storing food. The design and quality of the pieces create a table setting that is pleasing to the eye. Place the pottery items in the refrigerator for storage or straight into the dishwasher for easy clean up.


Use Longaberger pottery and stoneware as storage containers for food and other items. Store apples, oranges, grapes, peanuts, candy in areas where individuals have easy access to the items. The pottery and stoneware are attractive and work well with any decor.

Store craft items like sewing items, pencils, pens, crochet hooks, knitting needles in the taller pottery. Be creative and find storage uses for other craft items in smaller pottery pieces.

Use the pottery in the bathroom to store toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes, combs and make-up. Place artificial plants, seashells, and decorative soap in Longaberger pottery bowls to add decoration to the bathroom area.

Gift Giving

Give Longaberger pottery as gifts to friends and family. Include a recipe with the Longaberger pie plate and give it to a young bride. The pie plate will add to the bride's trousseau while the recipe will help the bride build a collection of items to prepare for her new husband. Take the Longaberger relish tray full of ready to serve vegetables or fruit to a birthday party and present the entire tray as a gift. The guests will enjoy the food while the guest of honor will have a new relish tray.
