Revocation

Right of revocation

You have the right to revoke this contract within 14 days without stating reasons. The revocation deadline consists of fourteen days from the day

  • on which you, or a Third Party nominated by you, who is not the carrier, took possession of the goods, insofar as you ordered one or more items of goods as part of a unitary order and the same are or is delivered as a unit,
  • on which you, or a Third Party nominated by you, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last item(s) of goods, insofar as you ordered several goods as part of a unitary order and these are delivered separately,
  • on which you, or a Third Party nominated by you, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last part shipment or the last item, insofar as you ordered an item of goods which is delivered in several part shipments or units.

To exercise your right of revocation, you must inform us (Stefanie Hering - Berlin GmbH, Potsdamer Straße 98, 10785 Berlin, Germany), via a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e mail), of your decision to revoke this contract. You may use the appended model revocation form, which however is not stipulated. To meet the revocation deadline, it is sufficient for you to dispatch the notice of revocation prior to expiry of the revocation period. Consequences of revocation

If you revoke this Contract, we must pay back to you, immediately and within fourteen days at latest from the day on which the notice of your revocation of this Contract was delivered to us, all payments which we have received from you, including the delivery costs (except for those additional costs charged because you chose a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery which we offered). For this repayment, we shall use the same means of payment which you used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with yourself; in no case shall you be subject to charges for this repayment.

We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods in return or until you have supplied proof that you have returned the said goods, whichever is the earlier time.

You must return or supply the goods to us immediately and in any case within fourteen days at latest from the day on which you notified us of the revocation of this Contract. This deadline shall be met if you dispatch the goods prior to expiry of the fourteen-day deadline. You shall pay the immediate costs for the return of goods. You must pay for any loss of value to the goods only if this loss of value is due to any dealings with yourself which are not necessary for checking the features, characteristics and function of the said goods.

Grounds for exclusion or lapse

This right of revocation shall not cover contracts

  • for delivery of goods which are not prefabricated and whose manufacture was subject to an individual selection or determination by the consumer, or which are clearly tailored to the consumer’s personal requirements,
  • for delivery of goods which may rapidly spoil or whose sell-by date would be rapidly exceeded;
  • for the delivery of alcoholic drinks whose price was agreed on conclusion of contract but which can be delivered no earlier than 30 days following conclusion of contract and whose current value depends on fluctuations in the market on which the trader has no influence,
  • for the delivery of newspapers, journals or illustrated magazines, except for subscription contracts.

This right of revocation shall lapse prematurely in the case of contracts

  • for the delivery of sealed goods which, for the protection of health or reasons of hygiene, are not suitable for return, if their seal has been removed after delivery,
  • for the delivery of goods if, due to their characteristics, the same are inextricably mixed with other goods,

FAQ & Product Care

Extremely resistant, hygienic, durable and made of natural raw materials: bisque porcelain and glass by Hering Berlin. If you would like to, it can accompany you for life. We would like to provide you with small guide on the proper care of our products so that you can enjoy them for a long time!

Porcelain by Hering Berlin in the dishwasher?

Like any other porcelain, our bisque loves the dishwasher. Precious metal decors are an exception, some are suitable for the dishwasher, for others we recommend washing by hand. Please make sure to follow the care instructions depending on each decor.

Will traces of food, lipstick, spices etc. really come off?

Stubborn dirt, such as dried leftovers or even burned bits can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher. If the stain is too stubborn, soak the piece in soapy water and scrub away with the green, hard side of a scouring sponge. The initially rough surface of bisque porcelain is smoothed by elaborately sanding the surfaces by hand. Which means that dirt will not get stuck on it. Not ketchup, not tea, not lipstick, not curry, not saffron, guaranteed!

Can the glaze scratch?

For our work, we use the hardest glazes currently available on the world market. However, a glaze is always softer than the unglazed bisque porcelain, so yes, it can get scratches, that’s unavoidable.

Metal abrasion on bisque porcelain – what to do?

Metal abrasion from flatware is rare. If it happens, we recommend using a scouring sponge and some scouring powder instead of soapy water.

Can porcelain by Hering Berlin be used in the oven?

Like any other porcelain for casseroles, cakes, quiches, etc. our porcelain can also be used in the oven. And because it stores heat considerably longer than any industrial porcelain, everything remains deliciously hot on the way from the kitchen to the table!

And the microwave?

Bisque porcelain is microwave-safe, with the exception of our precious metal decors. Flashovers or electric arcs may damage not only your porcelain, but also your microwave oven. Therefore, precious metal decors aren’t fit for microwaves.

What about the fridge?

No problem at all, our porcelain is immune to cold temperatures.

How fragile is bisque porcelain?

Being almost as hard as diamonds, bisque porcelain cannot be scratched easily! Stacking our porcelain pieces and moving them back and forth every day doesn't bother our products at all. However, its sensitivity to breakage is equivalent to that of porcelain, so if you drop a plate on a tile floor it will most likely be damaged.

How to clean and maintain precious metal decors?

Decors containing silver, gold and platinum should never be cleaned in the dishwasher and only by hand. Aggressive detergents and abrasive sponges are also a big no-no. To clean silver elements and eliminate tarnish, you can use commercially available silver care products in liquid or paste form. When stacking pieces with precious metal decors, please use a liner (flannelette/nonwoven) to prevent scratching the metal surface. Can the precious metals cause allergic reactions? Our precious metals do not present any health risk. Any type of food can be served on them.

How to keep glasses by Hering Berlin sparkly for a long time?

We recommend washing our glasses by hand and letting them dry on a tea towel. While our glasses are dishwasher-safe at temperatures below 50°C (122°F), aggressive detergents can permanently etch the surface of delicate glass over time.

What to keep in mind when drying glasses?

Glasses without stems can simply be air-dried or dried with tea towels. However, do not use fabric softener when washing your tea towels, as they might otherwise leave streaks on the glasses. Rummers however should dry standing on their base instead of upside down, as water might otherwise accumulate in the hollow base. We recommend using microfiber cloths to polish the glasses.
