Finnish design duo Helorinne and Kallio designed the Tuokio pattern for the 24h series. The pattern was inspired by Arabia's decorative traditions stretching back over 140 years, strong ceramic expertise and an ability to apply knowledge while respecting the old and simultaneously creating something new. The design of the Tuokio pattern was based on the clear lines of the 24h series designed by Heikki Orvola. The 24h series was named after its purpose: 24h – tableware pieces for every hour of the day. The word 'tuokio' ('moment' in Finnish) describes the intensity of time – a special moment where memories are created. It feels hand-painted, with a rhythm to the pattern where the brush strokes – the feel of the artist's work – are strongly present. The end result is an interesting and modern pattern that fits well within today's diverse place settings.

All Arabia vitro porcelain ware is oven safe except Paratiisi serving platter 36 cm and Paratiisi bowl 23 cm. Arabia Uunikokki series has been especially designed to oven use. When using Arabia ware in oven, please do not take a dish straight from the oven and put it into a cold, wet surface or put it on steel. Do not either put a dish straight into a hot oven from the freezer.
When in the oven, the bottom of the dish must be completely covered with liquid or food throughout the heating process. It can stand 250 celsius degrees and must be at least 10 cm away from the grill elements. Cool before placing in freezer, do not put in a hot oven directly from the freezer.

All Arabia products are dishwasher safe except dishes decorated with gold or platinum. Use a rinsing agent in the dishwasher to improve the results. Very dirty dishes can be soaked in hot water with detergent containing bleach. Cutlery made of soft steel, especially knives, may leave streaks of metal on a hard glazed surface that cannot be removed in a normal wash. (These can be removed by rubbing gently with metal polish.) Check the quality of cutlery when you buy it. To protect the glazing, avoid heavy rubbing when, for example, stacking plates.
